Magers Hall

Magers HallMagers-01_0.jpgMagers Hall isn’t just a place to live; it is a place where responsible leaders are shaped.  Magers Hall provides students with a relaxed atmosphere that promotes individuality and “small group” identity.  Students have a great balance between academics, social events, and community involvement. Magers Hall was completely renovated during the summer of 2005 and students were given the opportunity to create a theme and house names for the building. Students agree that Magers Hall is friendly, comfortable, generally quiet, and “homey”.  Magers Hall consists of six co-ed houses.  It is building 25 on the campus map.
 
NOTE: Due to the type of furniture in Magers Hall rooms, lofts are not permitted. Loft kits manufactured to fit the beds are available for rent.

Magers Hall Traditions

History:

Magers Hall opened in 1966 and is named after Mildred Magers, an NMU French professor who was known for her love of teaching and helping students.

Traditions:

  • Campus-wide Halloween Party

Interesting Facts:

  • Magers was the first hall to be renovated in a housing renovation project that began in 2005.
  • The houses in Magers are named after literary works.
  • In fall 2006, a bull moose ran into the window of the first floor laundry room, breaking two panes of glass before running into the woods.
  • Magers Hall was the last hall to have a “House Mother,” Mrs. Marion MacLean.  Her son is currently on the NMU alumni board.
