ASU: West Hall - Tempe AZ
The Public Works Administration (PWA) funded the construction of the West Hall, a girls’ dormitory at the Arizona State Teachers College in Tempe (today the Arizona State University).
“Built as the last of four dormitories that created the quadrangle, a place that hosted many early student traditions, West Hall is the only of the four buildings still remaining. The School of Social Transformation, and the School of Politics and Global Studies now occupy West Hall.”
West Hall is a handsome, two-story brick building in neo-classical style. The columned portico has Paladian windows and the original light fixtures. There are inset bas-reliefs set around the facade beneath the cornice.
The interior of the building has been largely modernized, but a few elements remain, such as the lobby floor, the old commons room (now a classroom), and the stairways.
