Front of Griffin Hall

Griffin Hall currently houses many classes and lectures, as well as the monthly Faculty Meeting.


Griffin Hall was originally built as a chapel (see history of Griffin Hall). It originally stood about 100 feet closer to Main Street than its current position (it was moved in 1904), and the bricks were painted yellow.


Griffin Hall is named for Edward Dorr Griffin, the third president of the College, who personally raised all the necessary money to build the building.


Griffin is also known for its double staircases and lack of bathrooms on any floor besides the basement. You best run fast. Or perform extraneous activities during class under the guise of bathroom breaks.
