Recently remodeled, the building is in very good condition.
In 1938, the College asked noted Chicago architect, Thomas Tallmadge, to prepare a master plan for college development. The plan, with modification, became the basis for future expansion of the "Upper Campus". Tri-Dorms was designed by Tallmadge, and completed in 1939, but this architect was killed in a train wreck soon after.
