$5 Million Gift to Drexel Will Establish Bentley Hall for Honors Students

With the help of a $5 million gift from Greg S. Bentley, CEO of Bentley Systems, and his wife Caroline, Drexel University will create a new epicenter on its campus for honors students. The gift comes at a time when construction is already underway at Calhoun Hall, an existing student residence hall, that will be fully renovated as part of Greg and Caroline Bentley Hall, a new complex that will house a true “living/learning” community for honors college students. In addition to the renovated student residence, Bentley Hall will also include a new, two-story glass and stone addition of about 10,800 square feet that will house the Pennoni Honors College offices and seminar rooms.
