Spalding Hall

Spalding Vector

Competition, pride, and identity are three ways to describe Spalding Hall. Spalding residents are known for both their Wildcat Spirit and Spalding Spirit.  Residents proudly wear their blue and orange colors of Spalding to represent their pride during hall events. Spalding also houses many student athletes who are very involved in their community and are strongly supported by the hall.  Spalding’s competitive nature is prevalent in hall competitions and intramural sports. Spalding Hall’s goal is to build a family oriented community for residents that promotes social development and student involvement.  Spalding is all co-ed and is building 66 on the campus map.
