After fifty-five years as Morningside College, the institution had so many male students that it had to construct a new building to house them and their wives. The Men's Residence Hall, renamed Roadman Hall in 1964 to honor the twenty-year presidency of Dr. Earl Roadman, was the first structure that the college specifically built to house male students. The building, including the south wing added to it in 1960, still serves as a residence hall, but for both men and women. The former large one-story space for the student union now contains the IT department, a recreation area, a formal lounge, and an open entry area.
