Recent Southern California rains have not delayed construction of St. Gladys Hall. “The building is progressing well,” reports Vice President for Finance and Administration Peter L. DeLuca. “The exterior stucco is nearing completion, and the tile roof is complete. The interior cabinets have been installed, and the woodwork is coming along. Work has also begun on the fountain.”
The classroom building, which sits on the south side of the academic quadrangle, adjacent to St. Bernardine of Siena Library  and perpendicular to Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel , is due to be complete in June. It is the thirteenth building constructed since the College acquired its campus in the 1970s. St. Gladys Hall will house eight classrooms designed to facilitate the small, seminar discussions  that are at the heart of the College’s unique academic program . Construction is made possible through a $3.2 million grant  from the Fritz B. Burns Foundation of Los Angeles.
