McClellan Hall was built in the 1960s and is named after an early trustee of the college, Irene Ward McClellan.  When the nursing school was founded in 1922, she established clinical training for the students at the Mary McClellan hospital in Cambridge, New York. She also served as a trustee from 1934 to 1952 and was awarded an honorary doctor of letters degree by the college in 1951 for her "lasting contribution to the vitality of this institution."

A Note From your area coordinator


Welcome to South Quad! Four identical residence halls in South Campus, home to a large majority of First Year and Sophomore Students.  Our residence halls contain a mix of triple, double, and single rooms. Each floor has great common room spaces where you might find students studying, attending an RA event, or just hanging out! Need a quiet place to do homework? Pop into the study room on your floor! With such close proximity to the Dining Hall and Case Center, what’s not to love?
