Campaign to Honor the Class of 2015

For more than forty years, the families of each graduating class have come together to fund a legacy project in honor of their children. The Campaign to Honor the Class of 2015 will provide funding for an essential component of the Boyden Library renovation: the expansion of Deerfield’s Office of College Advising.

The renovated Boyden Library will bring together, under one roof, the office of the Academic Dean, the Center for Service and Global Citizenship, the Innovation Lab, and the Office of College Advising. The new library will be an innovative, collaborative building, both promoting and reflecting Deerfield’s heritage of academic excellence.

In anticipation of this new space, and to better serve the evolving needs of students, Deerfield is increasing its College Advising staff and adopting a new advising model. For every student, preparation for the college search and application process will begin at the start of his/her time on campus. Faculty advisors will partner with college advisors to provide more extensive academic planning, and communication with students and families will be enhanced.
