Dows Hall (1963)
Dows Hall, a residence hall for predominately first year women, was named in honor of Sutherland Dows, Sr., a member of the Board of Trustees from 1932 to 1969 and its president for almost 20 years, and his wife.
Located in the “tri-hall area” of campus along with Tarr and Pfeiffer Halls, Dows is home to approximately 85 women, most of whom are first year students. If you were to ask a resident of Dows Hall to describe the atmosphere in the building, she might very well describe it as a “close-knit family.” Dows residents always seem to be up for a group activity — tie-dying parties, pumpkin carving contests and ice cream sundae socials are some of the events you will find going on in Dows on weekends and block breaks.
