Whether it be a juniorate, Fontbonne students, or WashU residents, what is now Southwest has seen it all. In the 1960s, the building served as a juniorate, which is a living space for young women studying to become a religious sister. The CSJs no longer needed the space in the 1970s, and Fontbonne residential life was not a prominent need on campus, so Washington University began to rent our residence hall. During the 1970s-90s, the name of the dorm was even changed to Washington Hall for our neighbors across Wydown. The building remained that way until renovations in 2000 created it into what we know today.
