Sunshine and bright weather coaxed
me to take a leisurely walk through
campus. This building has been
irresistible to me since I arrived!
I like the 1930 construction but feel
its stately appearance imitates early
Colonial period and feel it
truly is conducive to learning.
It houses 237 students within its walls.
Here are some of interesting facts
about Stuyvesant Hall, the largest
dormitory at Ohio Wesleyan University:
~ There are three wings which have
“suites” on co-ed floors, same sex
roommates in each suite, four
students in total occupancy.
Two rooms connected with one shared
bathroom and two shared closets,
one in each double room.
~The building has a bell tower, one
elevator to accommodate handicapped,
nice courtyard and an original “smoking
lounge” with a stage and occupancy of
up to 100 people in the audience.
This lounge and communal area
has been called since it was built,
“The Milligan Hub.”
~ The entire building’s nickname
is affectionately known as “The Sty.”
(Wonder if any of the rooms look
like my grown teenager’s “pig sties?”)
Casual performances occur here, small
concerts and plays.
~There is a much larger auditorium in
Chappelier Theater on Park Avenue.
The largest venue on campus is
located in my “neighbor’s” Gray Chapel.
(You may remember my December
post or my “castle in winter” you
may see from my apt. front porch.)
~ This dormitory’s only Sophomores,
Juniors or Seniors allowed.
~ There are large study rooms
located on each floor, along with
one trash room for every floor.
~ There is only one eating area with
kitchen appliances and microwaves
on the central area of the building.
~ I was surprised to read there is only
one vending machine area located in
the only laundry room.
~ There are 6 resident advisors with
two supervisory staff for the dorm.
~ Stuyvesant has its own Student
Health Center. This should reassure
the students’ parents!

Hope you enjoyed living vicariously
through this post in what I consider
the prettiest dormitory ever.
*This is not a paid endorsement
nor did I attend college here.
I chose for my family to move to this
town due to the attractive and
busy downtown area and
it’s being a college town.*
Did you ever move somewhere
not knowing a single person?
It amazes me that three of my old
high school classmates of 1974
from Cleveland suburb ended up
here, only finding this out after a
living here a few years later.
