Affectionately known as “JR,” one of the four original buildings on campus combines everything you’d want in a residence hall: history, personality, and functionality.
The charming brick building is even more beautiful on the inside; white archways and antique chandeliers dot the lobby, along with plenty of comfortable couches, and even a grand piano. Directly behind, you’ll find the beautiful Eleanor Searle Drawing Room, an elegant space where many campus events and banquets take place. This all-female option houses first-year women in a variety of rooms, ranging from singles to quads.
Community life is big here — the women of JR form connections within the building as a whole and also within the wings and smaller hallways of the building. If you’re ever looking for something to do, head down to the lobby, every weekend something is going on. Whether it’s a pizza party, movie night, or a board game competition, you will build strong relationships with your hallmates and meet some of your best friends while living in JR!
Living in JR is the way to meet new friends from all over the world! With almost 200 other residents, there’s bound to be a group of girls that you’ll fit right in with.
