The Quad

Author: Lynn Carroll, C’93

A number of alumni have great memories of living in the Quad.

The rooms are small but cozy, and you really get to know your roommates.  If you’re lucky, a roommates parent comes by, bringing yummy treats.


Perhaps more than any other campus housing, you never feel completely alone in the Quad.  There are always hall mates, neighbors, and friends close by!


Useless trivia:  Did you know that a gargoyle that does not spit water is actually called a “boss,” and that the Quad has more than 160 of them adorning the entire structure?
