Fern Smith Hall


Built in 1968, Fern Smith Hall—called “Fern”—houses 200 women. Fern is connected to the campus cafeteria, enabling residents to go to breakfast in their jammies if they want. Traditions include all-hall pajama bowling.

"I love the girls on my wing. They've helped me engage in real discussions and grow in my faith." Allison Derr, Fern Smith Hall
