VILLA JULIE College began in a few rooms of the old George Carroll Jenkins mansion in Green Spring Valley, home for the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.It soon expanded to the carriage house and stables on the mansion's grounds. Then it slowly gained buildings of its own.But only within the past year has it had the space it needed to accommodate its students with room to grow.That extra room came with two buildings that practically doubled the learning space on the campus: an academic center and theater that were completed last fall and a student union and athletic center that opened in January.

The Southside, a tangy cocktail made with mint, citrus juices and secrets, is an old-line favorite.
