Our Moment to Lead Campaign
Honoring the vision of our leaders and supported by loyal community members, throughout its history Perkiomen has embarked on bold initiatives and faced challenges thoughtfully, confidently, and successfully.
The Next Phase For Perkiomen
Our motto - Solvitur vivendo – reminds us that “it is solved by living.” Perkiomen students learn by doing and our vision for an updated and renovated student center is to create a hub where students experience collaboration, community-building, and personal and social development. Students are the life of our school and the purpose of our work - their pursuits shape our success. In the coming months we will have another opportunity to invest and enhance the student experience, and the Perkiomen campus, for generations to come.
The current space, added in 1958 and located in Roberts Hall, adjacent to Kehs Hall, is not adequate. Known to our community as “Robbie’s,” it is time for this well-used space to accommodate the needs of today’s student body – technologically attuned, more diverse, and twice as large as the addition intended to serve.
A central location already anchors Robbie’s as the physical heart of the campus, and our vision is to transform this hall into the symbolic heart of our Perkiomen community.
Integrating several student resources in a beautiful space will encourage the people inside to exchange ideas, share learning experiences, and build relationships, creating a unique campus culture. Featuring academic and support offices, performance space, areas for both work and play, along with a café and bookstore, a reimagined Robbie’s will provide students and faculty many opportunities for community engagement and personal growth.
"During our lifetime, there will be doors that appear and you must have the courage to walk through them. If you don't you'll never expand your horizons and you will always stay where you are. Open that door, walk through that door, and experience what's on the other side of that door. Yes, it's frightening. Yes, it's new. But guess what? You might just find something that's really important to you." ~Phil Lloyd '65
