South Dining Hall
South Dining Hall is the older of the University's two dining halls, opening in 1927. It is one of the finest examples of Gothic design in the United States, its architecture reminiscent of a medieval Guild Hall.
In the early days of its operation, students dressed in coat and tie and dined family style. Today, students come as they are to take advantage of modern kitchen facilities and a food court design that blend with the building’s original murals, stone fireplaces and oak tables and chairs. This distinctive building actually has a few places for dining, including the food market with made-to-order selections, hospitality rooms for special events, and the Reckers café featuring pizza and smoothies.
