The Beatty House, built ca. 1890, is a Shingle style structure that was originally the home of William H. Rea. It was bequeathed to the college in 1948 by Mary C. Rea. Used as a dormitory until 1968 and subsequently for offices, the building was restored and rehabilitated for use as alumni and development offices in 1998. The building houses approximately 30 women.
