Cedar Hall


Cedar Hall opened in August of 2017. The students who live in this building will have the opportunity to help name the houses, start traditions, and establish brand new communities. As students make an impact on the communities, this page will evolve to feature information about the government, traditions, and activities.

Resident Director - Sophie Fridstrom

Sophie graduated from Northern in 2015 with a BA in German Studies and minored in Accounting. While attending Northern, Sophie was an RA in Hollywood House - Gant Hall for over two years. In 2014, Sophie participated in Northern’s Faculty Led Study Abroad to Vienna, Austria. After graduating, Sophie moved to Seattle, Washington for a short amount of time before receiving a Fulbright English Teaching Grant which sent her to Germany. While there, Sophie assisted in teaching English to German elementary aged students during the week and traveled as often as possible on the weekends. During Sophie’s free time, she enjoys spending quality time with her husband, Josh, visiting the shores of Lake Superior, traveling, reading, crafting of any kind, and being active. Sophie considers herself to be a collector of hobbies and is more than willing to try anything new!
