Architects created a home-like atmosphere for younger women with the construction of South Hall (1913-1972) that accommodated 34 freshmen and sophomores. The architects for this project were Royal W. Lescher and John Rinder Kibbey.

North Hall (1914-1972) was the last of the dormitories of the period built for female students. After West Hall was built in 1936, these four buildings became known as the Quad. The architect for this building was L.G. Knipe.

East Hall, Alpha Hall, Blome Training School, Krause Hall, South and North Hall, the Infirmary and the Auditorium have been razed.
