Behnken Hall

Behnken Hall

The ground-breaking of Behnken Hall (nicknamed "The Big Dig") on January 29, 1998 marked the dedication of the second building of the new Residential Village. Opened in Fall of 1999 under the presidency of Peggy Stock (1995 to 2002), the hall was named for Mr. Jack Behnken, a trustee, in appreciation for his continued service to the college.


Stock, Behnken, and Olwell Halls are home to our upperclass resident students. All three buildings provide students the opportunity to live on campus in apartment-style housing. Students have their own rooms and share an apartment with up to five other people. The Halls also have laundry rooms, 24-hour security, Internet access in each room, and recreation rooms.
