I kept meaning to post about this building, and yesterday I had a chance to walk past it during the day with a camera in my hand. Memorial Hall is one of the first buildings on campus to cost over a million dollars (in 1920s money) and it commemorates veterans of World War I with names of battles on its…I was going to say pediments, but would that be something to do with feet? Under its eaves, anyway.
This is how it looked when it opened:
The area around it's been built up a bit–that's the football stadium, behind it:
It was built with a ballroom, so it's always had a social function, and there's a lovely balcony running across the back that's hidden by a later addition to the building. If you were to go through the front doors, you could go to the faculty cafeteria; if you were to go through the back doors, you could go to a computer lab, the Greek Life office, the Department of Intercultural Affairs (serving international and African American students), the LGBT Resource Center, and the student radio station.
