Phase II: May - November 2012

Transforming the Grotto and Kennedy Ellipse

During the second phase, the Grotto was moved to the area between St. Rita and Austin Halls. The new Grotto resembles a small amphitheater designed to hold approximately 20 to 30 people. Phase II will also featured the transformation of the Riley Ellipse—the area between Kennedy, Corr and Dougherty Halls and the Connelly Center— into an open and attractive gathering place. Work also will be done to improve the Sullivan-Sheehan Quad.
