Named the "Most Innovative University" in the north by U.S. News & World Report, Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) proves it with Monadnock Hall, their newest five-story student dorm, finished with Stoneyard™ Boston Blend building veneer. The stunning attention to detail on a large scale is what makes this project standout. Expansion joints allow the building to adapt to wide swings in the New England climate. The natural New England stone itself has already experienced thousands of freeze/thaw cycles since the ice age and so will stand up to both weather and generations of students for centuries to come.
