Bernard Hall

Bernard Hall offers some of the largest single occupancy rooms on campus for freshmen students, with community-style bathrooms in each hallway. Its very active hall staff sponsors a number of educational and social programs, intramural events, and equipment desired by the residents. Bernard Hall has a smaller ratio of students per floor which provides an excellent opportunity for community on each floor.
