Stetson Hall, the dorm that is soon to be no more, was built in 1886! It is Stetson's second oldest building...wow, that's old! The reasoning behind this demolition is the fact that Stetson Hall is truly in poor condition - including lots of mold - ew! I remember when I went to Stetson, many people living there had health issues due to the mold.
In 1946, the building was expanded a bit, which made it lose it's historical significance a bit.
Oh, and it was haunted. Yup. Haunted. Sad story- a young man committed suicide by hanging himself from his shower in a dorm room in Stetson Hall. I can't remember what year this happened. Story has it that people will see him walking around - through the window from the outside. People have said that they've seen him just staring out into the courtyard. Creepy, right?
Can you believe that for 125 years, Stetson Hall was used as a dormitory?! That sure is a long time! I feel like it's a piece of history that is soon going missing...
The property will now be used, most likely, for an admissions center.

It's so weird to know that when I go to visit, Stetson Hall will be MIA.
Has that happened to any of your alma matas? If so- how weird was it for you?
It's almost the weekend - yay! I have a three day weekend! :) Hope you all have a fantastic day!!
