Then & Now: Founders Great Hall Now

Founders Great Hall

With Magill Library under renovation, Founders Great Hall has been put to temporary use (along with a number of other spaces on campus) as a library stand-in, complete with study carrels and the relocated staff of research librarians. Upstairs, the Common Room is now a spot for quiet reading.

Then & Now: Founders Great Hall Then

Founders Great Hall

Founders Great Hall served as the College’s dining hall for more than 60 years, until the Dining Center opened in 1969. Since then, the majestic room has been a busy special events space, hosting invited speakers, student dances, alumni weddings, and concerts.

Come back tomorrow to see the Great Hall "Now."
