Pennsylvania school hasn't constructed new housing since 1968

From The Philadelphia Inquirer: Haverford College in Haverford, Pa., has received a $10 million pledge gift to build a new residence hall, its first new student housing since 1968. The gift, one of the largest in the school's history, came from the Jaharis Family Foundation. Steven M. Jaharis, a family doctor in Chicago and a 1982 Haverford graduate, is on the foundation's board of directors, as well as Haverford's board of managers. The college plans to build two residence halls on Orchard Green adjacent to the Whitehead Student Center. Each will house about 80 students.
