Schulyer Hall (1904—1966)

In 1904 construction began on a women’s residence hall estimated to cost around $12,000. Every aspect of the project, including labor and materials, was associated with a donor. In September of 2004, students began to move in to the building even though only two of the four floors were completed. At its completion, Schuyler Hall contained 50 large student rooms, a dining room with accommodation for 200 and reception and library rooms. The total cost of the project, including surrounding infrastructure, totaled $17,000. The new women’s residence hall was dedicated in honor of Dr. Aaron Schuyler, the university’s second president. The dining hall was dedicated in honor of Mr. F.D. Kimble, a generous donor.
