The loggia is a covered porch connecting Persons Dormitory and the Olive Swann Porter Student Activities Building. Constructed of brick and marble with a concrete floor and iron railings, the loggia is an example of Greek Revival and Italian architecture. Serving as a meeting place for students and visitors for over seventy-five years, its significance derives from its beauty and its importance to campus life.
