CULVER, Ind. -- Culver Academies announced that a $65 million donation was received from a Culver Military Academy alumnus to rebuild three dormitories on campus.

This donation was made by George R. Roberts who graduated from Culver Military Academy in 1962.

Construction will begin this summer on the Roberts Residential Quadrangle, which will include new Main, North and East barracks, as well as a central plaza serving as a focal point to one of the most iconic areas of campus. These new dormitories will replace the existing Main, North and East barracks.

“It was important that Culver change to meet the needs of modern students. The existing buildings have served Culver well for more than 100 years, but the need for quality, state of the art technological, mechanical, and electrical infrastructure, as well as the efficiency and cost savings that modern construction materials bring, made this project necessary,” said Dr. Doug Bird, Head of Schools at Culver Military Academy.

While the new dormitories will have all the necessities required of a modern education facility, the construction will remain sensitive to the look and feel of the collegiate gothic style architecture that is predominantly on campus and unique to Culver.

Each dormitory will house from 80 to 175 students with rooms, lounge areas, information technology support and meeting areas, as well as office and residential areas for live-on-campus faculty and staff assigned to those students.
