Enhancing Our Common Ground, The Campaign for Holland Hall, is a recently completed, $50 million fundraising campaign to promote and support student and faculty excellence, ensure the financial future of the school, and transform Holland Hall’s physical campus. The most visible of those achievements — the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Dining and Wellness Center — recently opened at the south-Tulsa independent school.
The Tandy, as it is informally called, houses the Marylouise Tandy Dining Hall, where Middle and Upper School students and faculty can now eat lunch together. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the beautiful Chapman Green, and a modern kitchen and servery provide extensive food options quickly and efficiently. Found in the same wing as the dining hall are the Common Grounds coffee shop, a school spirit store called the Dutch Zone, and the Hall of Honor, paying tribute to the school’s founders, alumni, and donors.
The A.R. “Bill” Tandy Wellness Wing features specialized areas for Holland Hall students in grades 4 through 12, as well as offices for athletics staff and conference rooms for student, alumni, and staff use. A state-of-the-art fitness floor, full training center with the latest technology and equipment to enhance performance and prevent and treat injury, and new locker rooms offer student-athletes all the resources they need to reach and maintain optimum fitness, wellness, and athletic achievements.
The Common Ground Campaign, the largest single fundraising effort in Holland Hall’s nearly hundred-year history, also raised $13 million in new endowments for student financial aid and faculty support and recognition, $9 million in special projects and donations to the Annual Fund, and $9 million in estate gifts.
