History of Caldwell Hall
Caldwell is named in honor of Ada Bertha Caldwell, professor of Industrial Arts, student advocate, mentor and student services visionary. An artist and teacher, Ada Caldwell taught for over three decades at South Dakota State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. She taught the state’s most well-known artist, Harvey Dunn.
Caldwell’s influence extended outside of classroom instruction in the arts as reflected in her efforts in the creation of the Coolidge Sylvan Theatre, her encouragement of the development of the Campus Grove, and the construction of the first student union which is now Pugsley Hall.
Transitioning to life in the halls can be difficult, but we have a number of resources to help! Check out all of the amenities we have to offer, our hall staff, and ways to get involved in your time in the halls.
