Narrative:
The Duke Hall of Citizenship was constructed with financial assistance from Benjamin Duke of North Carolina. This building would become the centerpiece of the campus quad and the university. Beginning in 1928, Duke Hall housed all administrative functions of the university and served as the site for commencement. Many generations of LMU alumni have passed through the doors of Duke at the beginning of their college career to register for classes and later returned to Duke Hall for commencement. Even though other buildings were constructed earlier, the Duke Hall of Citizenship remains a central structure on the LMU campus.
