Zimmerman Hall

zimmerman.jpgZimmerman Hall, dedicated in 1964, was originally designed to be a dormitory for women. This three story brick building measuring 32 x 263 ft. could house 128 women. These students would stay two to a room in rooms measuring 16 x 14 ft. This building was designed to be the women's "best home away from home."

Zimmerman Hall also held the campus cafeteria in the south corner of the first floor. In addition, Zimmerman Hall's first floor contained an information center, lounge, and the house-mother's apartment. Each of the student floors contained a kitchenette and a lounge for study groups or student get-togethers.



The exterior of the hall has seen some changes. In 1996 the Trojan Center or TC was expanded and renovated. This expansion caused the TC to be directly attached to Zimmerman Hall.
