Heffernan Hall

BUILT: 1964

ARCHITECT/BUILDER: Gleeson & Mulrooney / John McShain

HISTORY: By the early 1960s, some students had to be housed off campus — not an ideal situation. In 1964, a new dorm was erected next to the Science Building, to include room for about 150 students plus a small chapel. The new hall was named in honor of Margaret Heffernan, wife of Raymond Heffernan, a trustee of the college.
