Wallace Hall, built in 1906, continues to be used as a residence hall for 192 students. The building underwent the second and final phase of total renovation in the summer of 2003.
The building is the oldest residence hall on campus. Its "old architecture" provide a charm and unique floor plan that are not found in the cinder block, double loaded corridors of residence halls built since the 1950s.
