Transforming the Quad at Trinity-Pawling

For more than a century, generations of students have relaxed, played, and celebrated on the quad. As the heart of campus, this beloved spot behind Cluett is home to years of cherished memories and milestones.

This spring, the School broke ground on an extensive renovation of the quad. Plans include a dynamic outdoor classroom, scenic gathering spaces, and a grand terrace behind Cluett Lobby.

We invite you to play a role in this historic transformation by naming a space and leaving your mark on Trinity-Pawling.

  • A grand multi-use terrace behind Cluett Lobby
  • A brick walkway around the quad and to all dorms and surrounding buildings

  • Elegant lampposts surrounding the quad

  • Terrace behind Cluett: $250,000
  • East seating area: $100,000

Light the Way!

As symbolized in Trinity-Pawling’s iconic crest, a lamp represents knowledge, truth, wisdom, and enlightenment — lighting the way for academic learning. This year, as the School transforms the quad walkway, a series of lampposts will be placed strategically around the path. The lamps will illuminate the walkway and gathering spaces at each corner, while signifying the lifelong learning that happens on campus.

We invite you to leave your mark on the School by naming one of these elegant lampposts, lighting the way for generations of students to come.

Lamppost Details

  • 18 lampposts surrounding the quad
  • Lampposts will measure 13 feet high
