Princeton University School of Architecture
Princeton University School of Architecture is one of the world's leading and most prestigious architecture schools. Founded in 1919, the School is a center for teaching and research in architectural design and theory at Princeton University; the School offers offers an undergraduate certificate and advanced degrees at the master's and doctoral levels. In 1832, Joseph Henry, who became the first secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, taught the first course in architecture at Princeton University; the course focused on the classification of architectural designs. Additional courses and programs for architecture began in 1882 when Princeton University's Department of Art and Archaeology began courses on architecture and historical drawing in 1902. By 1915, the first academic committee convened to consider the establishment of a school of architecture. Arrangements for a new program were planned for 1917, but were delayed until 1919 when the School of Architecture formally opened. During its formative years, the School of Architecture's pedagogy was guided by some of the best architectural educators of the time: Howard Crosby Butler, E. Raymond Bossange, Frederick D'Amato, Sherley Warner Morgan, Jean Labatut.
Visitors and teachers included leaders like Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, Richard Neutra, R. Buckminster Fuller. In 1965, Robert Geddes was appointed the first dean of the School of Architecture. Under his direction, the School of Architecture grew in size and in prestige, while collaborating with other departments at Princeton University; as the School of Architecture expanded, it began attracting notable architects as teachers, including Louis I. Kahn, Mario Salvadori, Michael Graves, Kenneth Frampton, Peter Eisenman, Diana Agrest, Robert Geddes, Alan Colquhoun, Michael Hays, Scott Cohen, Anthony Vidler. By the end of the twentieth century, the School of Architecture established itself as an internationally renowned school for the study of architecture and design, it reorganized the A. B. conducted renovations of the Architecture Building. It promoted several members to its tenure-track faculty including Beatriz Colomina, Elizabeth Diller, Guy Nordenson; the following individuals have served as deans of the School of Architecture: Robert Geddes, 1965–1982 Robert Maxwell, 1982–1989 Ralph Lerner, 1989–2002 Stan Allen, 2002–2012 Alejandro Zaera-Polo, 2012–2014 Mario Gandelsonas, 2015 Mónica Ponce de León, 2016-present The School of Architecture offers a rigorous, interdisciplinary curriculum in the study of architecture.
The degree conferred to students is an A. B. degree. Undergraduate students study a range of disciplines including architectural design, history of architecture, architectural analysis and others. Students may enroll in the Program in Urban Studies which focuses on the study of cities, ], urban and suburban landscapes; the degree requirements include junior independent work, which involves a written exam supervised by a faculty adviser, a senior thesis, demonstrating a research paper based on visual materials. The School of Architecture offers two graduate degrees: a professional degree and an academic degree; the master's degree takes three years to complete and requires students to hold a Bachelor of Architecture degree. The rigorous program requires students to take 25 courses from a list of prerequisites and electives; the Ph. D. program has two tracks: theory and technology. The history and theory track is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the relationship between architecture and related fields, such as urbanism and building technology.
The degree requires students to take two years of coursework and independent study, after which they begin their dissertation. Students must pass two foreign language exams, which include French, Spanish, or Italian. In 2014, the School launched the new architectural technology Ph. D. track for computation and energy. The track focuses on new techniques in energy/environmental performance; the program is supported by Princeton's School of Applied Science. While the first two years of coursework are similar to the Ph. D. in History and Theory, the Ph. D. in Technology requires students to concentrate in a particular subfield of technology. The School of Architecture building was dedicated in 1963. New York City architecture firm ARO designed the first significant addition to the building since it was first constructed in 2007; the Embodied Computation Lab, located off the School of Architecture grounds proper, is a teaching and research facility dedicated to the interface between computation and design and the development of knowledge in the fields of digital fabrication and remote sensing.
It combines architectural and engineering experimentation to utilize computation design, digital fabrication, sophisticated sensing and control electronics that make the Lab a center for interdisciplinary design exploration and prototyping. Over 5,000 square feet of space is available for heavier fabrication work, hands-on material experiments, the construction of full-scale mock-ups. Housed within the Lab are facilities for building in wood, plastic and concrete that enable students to learn general model theory and test models of actual buildings, study current building systems and technology; the Lab serves a project space for developing and testing large-scale architecture and engineering prototypes inside and outside or as facade elements. Additionally, it serves as a state of the art research environment with digital fabrication equipment for full-scale material prototyping, such as a water jet cutter, large-sca

The Center for Information Technology Policy at Princeton University is a leading interdisciplinary research center, dedicated to exploring the intersection of technology, public policy, the social sciences. Faculty and other researchers come from a variety of disciplines, including Computer Science, Politics, Engineering and the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs; the CITP conducts research in a number of areas, such as Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and Cryptocurrencies, Electronic Voting, Government Transparency, Intellectual Property. Various media outlets, government agencies, private organizations have cited the research of the CITP; the current Director of the CITP is Edward Felten, the Robert E. Kahn Professor of Computer Science and Public Affairs at Princeton University, he has served as the Deputy U. S. Chief Technology Officer and as the first Chief Technologist for the Federal Trade Commission. One of the leading research initiatives at the CITP centers on electronic voting.
Felten, Ariel J. Feldman, J. Alex Halderman conducted security analysis on a Diebold AccuVote-TS voting machine, one of the most used machines of its kind, they discovered a method. Their research gained additional media attention when it was brought before the U. S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in June 2017; the Interconnection Measurement Project is an annual initiative at the CITP that provides ongoing data collection and analysis from ISP interconnection points. Aggregated data serving 50 percent of residential broadband subscribes is collected every 5 minutes; the CITP offers an undergraduate certificate in Technology and Society, Information Technology Track. This program requires students to complete a combination of core, technology and breadth courses in and outside the area of information technology; the goal of the program is to help students better understand how technology drives social change and how society itself shapes technology. The CITP hosts a number of workshops, policy briefings, lecture series, initiatives at Princeton University.
Shirley M. Tilghman
Shirley Marie Tilghman, is a North American scholar in molecular biology and an academic administrator. She is now a professor of molecular biology and public policy and president emerita of Princeton University. Tilghman was the 19th president of Princeton University. Tilghman was the first biologist to hold the Princeton presidency, she is the fifth "foreign born" president of Princeton, the second academic born in Canada to be elected to the position. A leader in the field of molecular biology, Tilghman was a member of the Princeton faculty for fifteen years before being named president, she has returned to the Princeton faculty as a professor of molecular biology. In that capacity, she has returned to the Lewis-Sigler Institute of Integrative Genomics as a faculty member. Tilghman continues to hold leadership positions in the global scientific community, she was the 2015 president of the ASCB. Tilghman was born in Toronto, Canada; as a young child, her father encouraged her interest in math. She graduated from Kelvin High School in Winnipeg and received her honours B.
Sc. in chemistry from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, in 1968. She was a secondary school teacher in Sierra Leone, West Africa, in the Canadian University Services Overseas Program. Tilghman earned her Ph. D. in biochemistry from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania under Richard W. Hanson. Tilghman was Hanson's first graduate student, her PhD Dissertation was entitled "The Hormonal Regulation of Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxykinase." She married Joseph Tilghman in 1970. This marriage ended in 1983, leaving Shirley Tilghman with custody of their young daughter and infant son, she attributes her successful balancing of a scientific career and caring for her family to organization and focus. Her goal was to not feel guilty while at work or at home, instead focusing on the task at hand. Tilghman's work in molecular genetics focused on the regulation of genes during development in the field of genomic imprinting. During postdoctoral studies at the National Institutes of Health, Tilghman made a number of discoveries while a member of the team which cloned the first mammalian gene.
She went on to demonstrate that the globin gene was spliced, a finding that helped confirm some of the revolutionary theories emerging about gene behavior. As an independent investigator at the Institute for Cancer Research in Philadelphia and adjunct associate professor of Human Genetics at the University of Pennsylvania Tilghman continued to make scientific breakthroughs. Tilghman went to Princeton University in 1986 as the Howard A. Prior Professor of the Life Sciences. Two years she joined the Howard Hughes Medical Institute as an investigator, she was a leader in the use of mice to understand the behavior of genes by researching the effect of gene insertion in embryonic cells. In 1998, she took on additional responsibilities as the founding director of Princeton's multi-disciplinary Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, while continuing to study how male and female genomes are packaged and the consequences of the differences for regulating embryo growth. Tilghman's extensive series of published research papers are catalogued on the PubMed government website of the United States National Library of Medicine, the NLM division of the National Institutes of Health.
Tilghman succeeded Harold Tafler Shapiro and became the 19th president of Princeton University in 2001. She was elected Princeton's first woman president on May 5, 2001, assumed office on June 15, 2001. Under her administration, the university built a sixth residential college, named in honor of alumna Meg Whitman, to accommodate an 11 percent expansion of the undergraduate student body, as recommended by a special committee of the Board of Trustees chaired by Paul M. Wythes. In 2012, Tilghman announced that she would step down from her presidency in June 2013, she was succeeded by Christopher L. Eisgruber. For Tilghman, Princeton has two essential missions. "One is to ensure that our doors are open as wide as possible to every talented student in the world, capable of doing the hard work we ask of them. And that means maintaining our commitment to financial aid, the tool – the critical tool – to get those students to Princeton, and the second thing is that we must address the most critical issues, push back the frontiers of knowledge, not just in science and technology, but in social policy, in public policy, in understanding the nature of the human condition."The establishment of Whitman College, together with the reconstruction of Butler College, accompanied a significant reconfiguration of Princeton's residential college system, which now incorporates upperclassmen as well as freshmen and sophomores, providing new residential options and increasing opportunities for social interaction across the student body.
In addition, an effort has been made to strengthen the relationship between the university and Princeton's independent eating clubs, where most upperclassmen take their meals, with the goal of enhancing the undergraduate experience of all students. In 2009, she appointed a committee chaired by Nannerl O. Keohane to review undergraduate women's leadership at Princeton. Tilghman has presided over a number of academic initiatives at Princeton, including the creation of a Center for African American Studies, the Lewis Center for the Arts (named after alumnus Peter B. L
The Princeton Branch is a commuter rail line and service owned and operated by New Jersey Transit in the U. S. state of New Jersey. The line is a short branch of the Northeast Corridor Line, running from Princeton Junction northwest to Princeton with no intermediate stops. Known as the Dinky, or the Princeton Junction and Back, the branch is served by special shuttle trains. Now running 2.7 mi along a single track, it is the shortest scheduled commuter rail line in the United States. The run takes 5 minutes in each direction. At the initiative of Princeton University, the line was shortened by 460 ft in order to construct a new University Arts Center. A new station opened on November 17, 2014. All service on the Princeton Branch has been suspended and replaced by shuttle buses from mid-October 2018 until May 24, 2019, as part of NJT's systemwide service reductions during the installation and testing of positive train control; the Princeton Branch provides rail service directly to the Princeton University campus from Princeton Junction, where New Jersey Transit and Amtrak provide Northeast Corridor rail service, heading northeast to Newark, New York City, Boston, southwest to Trenton and Washington.
As of 2016, the branch schedule includes 41 round trips each weekday. The line is served by a two-car set of Budd Arrow III self-propelled electric coach cars. In September 2018, New Jersey Transit announced that it would be suspending all service on the Princeton Branch from mid-October 2018 until mid-January 2019, providing shuttle bus service instead. Restoration of train service was postponed until May 24, 2019. Systemwide service reductions were attributed to the installation and testing of positive train control, compounded by a shortage of train engineers; the automatic braking system will not be installed on the Princeton Branch itself. When the Camden and Amboy Rail Road and Transportation Company opened its original Trenton–New Brunswick line in 1839, completing the first rail connection between Philadelphia and New York Harbor, the line was located along the east bank of the newly completed Delaware and Raritan Canal, about one mile from downtown Princeton. A new alignment opened on November 23, 1863, but some passenger trains continued to use the old line until the Princeton Branch opened on May 29, 1865, at the end of the American Civil War.
The branch's first train used a Grice & Long wood-burning steam dummy for passenger service, took about 20 minutes each way. The Pennsylvania Railroad leased and began to operate the C&A, including the Princeton Branch, in 1871; the branch was re-aligned and double-tracked in 1905 to handle popular college football weekends, upgraded from coal to a gasoline-electric train in 1933 electrified in 1936, single-tracked again in 1956. The 1956 rail bridge over U. S. Route 1 was replaced in 1994 to allow further widening of the highway. Penn Central Transportation took over operations in 1968, discontinued the little-used Penns Neck station in 1971; when Conrail was formed in 1976, the Final System Plan called for the transfer of the Princeton Branch to Conrail and to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, but the transfer to NJDOT was not made until 1984. The Princeton train, locally called the "Dinky" or the "PJ&B", is a unique symbol of Princeton University that has grown over time to emblemize the University.
It is mentioned in F. Scott Fitzgerald's "This Side of Paradise", featured in the TV program "Family Ties" when young Alex Keaton goes for his on-campus interview, it is in the 1934 Bing Crosby movie "She Loves Me Not"; the theme of Princeton and the train is repeated in the University's own traditional homecoming song "Going Back to Nassau Hall" by Kenneth S. Clark. In it, the lyric "We'll clear the track as we go back" refers to the Princeton Branch track leading to the campus; the Great Dinky Robbery was an incident on May 3, 1963, in which four men boarded the Dinky and abducted four passengers. Princeton was not yet co-educational, the Dinky was the usual mode of transportation for women dating members of the all-male student body. On a Friday evening, four Princeton University students, riding horses in Western attire, ambushed the train as it was arriving at Princeton station. A convertible was parked across the track; the men, including George R. Bunn Jr. of the Bunn coffee maker family, armed with a pistol loaded with blanks, boarded the train and persuaded four female passengers to leave with them.
The Dinky resumed its trip and arrived at Princeton station. Although the University administrators were aware of the event and may have known, involved, they took no official action. In 2006, Princeton University announced its intention to construct a new arts center, calling for the replacement of the 1918 Princeton station house, the shortening of the trackage right-of-way, the creation of a new terminus 460 ft to the south. Rail advocates opposed the relocation, fearing that access to the new station would be less convenient, resulting in decreased ridership that could "threaten the train's existence." The proposal prompted protest from residents, students and alumni, led to the creation of the organization Save the Dinky and a lengthy series of legal challenges. In October 2010, the Princeton Regional Planning Board passed a resolution supporting the continuation of train service; the new Princeton station opened on November 17, 2014, with construction continuing on a complex of arts and dining buildings in the surrounding area.
As of 2017, weekday ridership was down 20 percent from 2012, the last full year of the old s
In the law regulating historic districts in the United States, a contributing property or contributing resource is any building, object, or structure which adds to the historical integrity or architectural qualities that make the historic district, listed locally or federally, significant. Government agencies, at the state and local level in the United States, have differing definitions of what constitutes a contributing property but there are common characteristics. Local laws regulate the changes that can be made to contributing structures within designated historic districts; the first local ordinances dealing with the alteration of buildings within historic districts was in Charleston, South Carolina in 1931. Properties within a historic district fall into one of two types of property: contributing and non-contributing. A contributing property, such as a 19th-century mansion, helps make a historic district historic, while a non-contributing property, such as a modern medical clinic, does not.
The contributing properties are key to a historic district's historic associations, historic architectural qualities, or archaeological qualities. A property can change from contributing to non-contributing and vice versa if significant alterations take place. According to the National Park Service, the first instance of law dealing with contributing properties in local historic districts occurred in 1931 when the city of Charleston, South Carolina, enacted an ordinance that designated the "Old and Historic District." The ordinance declared that buildings in the district could not have changes made to their architectural features visible from the street. By the mid-1930s, other U. S. cities followed Charleston's lead. An amendment to the Louisiana Constitution led to the 1937 creation of the Vieux Carre Commission, charged with protecting and preserving the French Quarter in the city of New Orleans; the city passed a local ordinance that set standards regulating changes within the quarter. Other sources, such as the Columbia Law Review in 1963, indicate differing dates for the preservation ordinances in both Charleston and New Orleans.
The Columbia Law Review gave dates of 1925 for 1924 for Charleston. The same publication claimed that these two cities were the only cities with historic district zoning until Alexandria, Virginia adopted an ordinance in 1946; the National Park Service appears to refute this. In 1939, the city of San Antonio, enacted an ordinance that protected the area of La Villita, the city's original Mexican village marketplace. In 1941 the authority of local design controls on buildings within historic districts was being challenged in court. In City of New Orleans vs Pergament Louisiana state appellate courts ruled that the design and demolition controls were valid within defined historic districts. Beginning in the mid-1950s, controls that once applied to only historic districts were extended to individual landmark structures; the United States Congress adopted legislation that declared the Georgetown neighborhood in Washington, D. C. protected in 1950. By 1965, 51 American communities had adopted preservation ordinances.
By 1998, more than 2,300 U. S. towns and villages had enacted historic preservation ordinances. Contributing properties are defined through historic district or historic preservation zoning laws at the local level. Zoning ordinances pertaining to historic districts are designed to maintain a district's historic character by controlling demolition and alteration to existing properties. In historic preservation law, a contributing property is any building, object or site within the boundaries of the district that contributes to its historic associations, historic architectural qualities or archaeological qualities of a historic district, it can be any property, structure or object that adds to the historic integrity or architectural qualities that make the historic district, either local or federal, significant. Definitions vary. Another key aspect of a contributing property is historic integrity. Significant alterations to a property can sever its physical connections with the past, lowering its historic integrity.
Contributing properties are integral parts of the historic context and character of a historic district. A property listed as a contributing member of a historic district meets National Register criteria and qualifies for all benefits afforded a property or site listed individually on the National Register. A building within a historic district that contributes to the historic character of the district. See Building property type of NRHP listing. An object within a historic district that contributes to the historic character of the district. See Object property type of NRHP listing. A structure within a historic district that contributes to the historic character of the district. See Structure property type of NRHP listing. A site within a historic district that contributes to the historic character of the district. See Site property type of NRHP listing; the line between contributing and non-contributing can be fuzzy. In particular, American historic districts nominated to the National Register of Historic Places before 1980 have few records of the non-contributing structures.
State Historic Preservation Offices conduct surveys to determine the historical character of structures in historic districts. Districts nominated to the National Register of Historic Places after 1980 list those structures considered non-contributing; as a general rule, a contributing property helps make a historic district historic. A 19th-century Queen Anne mansion, such as the David Syme House, is a contributing property, while a modern gas station or medical clinic within th
Colonial Club is one of the eleven current eating clubs of Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey, United States. Founded in 1891, it is the fifth oldest of the clubs, it is located on 40 Prospect Avenue. A private social club for undergraduates at Princeton University, the club was referred to as "flamboyant Colonial" in F. Scott Fitzgerald's debut novel, This Side of Paradise, was defined as being one of the "top five" clubs along with Ivy, Cap & Gown, Tiger Inn; as the first eating club to both abandon the selective bicker process and become coeducational in 1969, Colonial Club has been heralded for its progressive legacy. Colonial Club has been affiliated with over 7 Rhodes Scholars and several Valedictorians of Princeton University. Among the Princetonians who were involved in the World War II code-breaking at Bletchley Park, some were from Colonial Club; the club has served as the primary social scene for several notable alumni during their undergraduate years, including former Colonial Club Vice President Joseph Nye'58, co-founder of the international relations theory of neoliberalism, Pete Conrad'53, third man to walk on the moon, Eric Schmidt'76, executive chairman of Alphabet Inc. and former CEO of Google, Ted Cruz'92, U.
S. Senator and candidate for the Republican nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election; the club occupies a large mansion on the north side of Prospect Avenue in Princeton, NJ. The building is recognizable by its four large white columns fashioned in Colonial style; the current building has served as the clubhouse for Colonial since 1906. After occupying several locations farther away from campus, the current house was built during a time of strong rivalry between eating clubs, across the street from rival clubs Ivy and Cottage. Colonial's first clubhouse was located on 306 Nassau Street and served as the club's residence for only one year. In 1892, the club moved to a house on 186 Nassau Street fashioned in the period's cottage architecture, featuring a front facade in the Queen Anne style; the club subsequently moved to Prospect Avenue in 1897, taking over the old Ivy Club house and changing the exterior by adding decorative columns and enlarging the lower floor. This third clubhouse lasted 9 years until the current clubhouse was built, funded by the issuance of bonds to graduate members and alumni.
The current clubhouse features a wide variety of facilities, including a large foyer, cloak room, dining hall, library, home theatre and billiards room, computer cluster, various study rooms, over a dozen bedrooms. The club's undergraduate officers reside in the mansion's third floor. Founded in 1891 under the presidency of H. P.'Bert' Fisher'93, the club was formed by a group of 13 Princeton University juniors, who called themselves the "Plug and Ulster Club." The club's founders encountered opposition by the president of the college, Reverend Francis L. Patton, who opposed to the establishment of a boy's club adjacent to Evelyn College, Princeton's coordinate women's college. After agreeing to several provisions, Colonial Club was founded and situated itself in an old Virginian, three-story veranda house; the original section consisted of several notable students including Booth Tarkington, founder of the Princeton Triangle Club. The club was incorporated in 1896 as The Colonial Club of Princeton University.
After the sinking of the Lusitania, military training became the principal activity on campus. Only a few of the eating clubs remained open during this time. Colonial Club temporarily considered combining with Tiger Inn until the full membership of the various clubs returned to college after the war; the entire 1917 section left college to enter various branches of service, the entirety of the 1919 section was drafted, leading to the closing of the club. Several club members perished during World War I, including John G. Agar Jr.'14, Joseph M. Duff Jr.'12, Gordon C. Gregory'18, Samuel F. Pogue'04. Colonial Club's 1920 section managed to revive the club after the war, under the guidance of W. Irving Harris'20 and Harvey S. Firestone, Jr.'20, chairman of the board of the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company. Colonial Club enjoyed its biggest years in the thirties; the original 1933 section of thirty men was the largest that had entered the club up to that time, most of whom were students in the university's Politics Department.
According to the Colonial Club 100th Anniversary Book, the most striking feature of the club proved to be the members' "bland unawareness of the significance of outside events in those days...few believed that the invasion of Manchuria or Hitler's rise to power carried a personal threat to us." Colonial Club's tradition of having its formal club dinners in New York began in 1934 in an effort to bring together graduate and undergraduate members. The tradition has continued into the 21st century, with member and alumni dinners held at the Princeton Club of New York. In the 1940s, Colonial Club continued to hold its place as one of the "Big Five" prominent eating clubs, along with Ivy, Cap & Gown, Tiger Inn. At the time, 80% of the members came from private preparatory schools in New York and Boston, with the primary campus activity being Triangle Club and crew. Membership dropped during World War II, with over 18 members ranging from the 1914 section to the 1941 section perishing in the conflict.
After the world war, Colonial's extravagant style and activities returned to the club's normal affairs. Nearly $15,000 was once spent to hire Lester Lanin's Orchestra, parties reminiscent of those in the Roaring Twenties became a staple of club li
John D. Rockefeller 3rd College, or "Rocky", is one of six residential colleges at Princeton University, United States, it was founded in 1982. It is named for John D. Rockefeller 3rd, Princeton Class of 1929, who served as a major donor and longtime trustee of the University; the college is located in the northwestern corner of the Princeton campus and is composed of Collegiate Gothic style structures. Madison Hall, home of the college dining hall and common spaces, the dorms Holder Hall, Buyers Hall, part of Campbell Hall are presently part of Rockefeller College. Witherspoon Hall, built in 1877, is the oldest building in the college, is characteristically Richardsonian Romanesque, a style which predates the Collegiate Gothic; the college is home to 500 first years and sophomores and a small number of upperclassmen. The college staff is led by the head, includes a dean, a director of studies, a college administrator, a college secretary, two graduate student assistant masters; the current master of Rockefeller College is Clancy Rowley, Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.
A council of current students contributes to college life, organizing trips, study breaks, other opportunities. Beginning with the 2007–2008 school year, Rockefeller College has, along with Princeton's other residential colleges, catered to upperclassmen as well as underclassmen, with new programs and advising. However, the college houses no upperclassmen, with the exception of Residential College Advisors. Rocky is a two-year college, paired with the four-year Mathey College, located nearby. Rockyites who wish to live in a residential college past their sophomore year may move into one of the three four-year colleges, Whitman and Butler. Since Rocky is paired with Mathey College, priority for housing in Mathey is given to students who spent their first two years living in Rocky or Mathey. Therefore, although it is possible for a Rockyite to move into any of the three four-year colleges after sophomore year, it is most advantageous for him or her to move into Mathey. Rockefeller College's common room, Holder Hall, Blair Arch were all featured in the film A Beautiful Mind.
Each of the six residential college have a Head, a Dean of the College, a Director of Studies, a Director of Student Life, a College Administrator and a College Secretary. These positions are as follows: Head of College: Clancy Rowley Dean of the College Justine Hernandez Levine Director of Studies Maria Medvedeva Director of Student Life Amy Ham Johnson College Administrator Karen Sisti College Secretary Crystal SadaThe Head of the College is an appointed position who must be reappointed every four years.
