Look familiar? As culture and architecture change, so do college campuses. St. Joseph’s Hall has housed residents on campus for over fifty years, and the lobby has changed to fit the needs of those students. In this photograph when the dorm opened in 1961, it’s evident that style and fashion has greatly changed in the past 58 years. Although the famous purple wall and “Welcome to Griffin Nation” has not arrived yet, the St. Joseph’s Hall dormitory has continuously been updated to create a comfortable living experience for each class that comes through.
