What is distinctive about Alumni Hall is the manner in which it takes advantage of the College's rolling terrain and is also linked to an earlier, vernacular farmhouse that remains from the nineteenth century. The postmodern, high-pitched roofs of Alumni Hall mimic the Gothic gables of the earlier building while the split-level massing of the structure fits easily into its sloping site. On the main story of Alumni Hall, the central and southern sections provide bright, open spaces for administrative activities. The building helps provide a link between the site's agrarian past and academic present.
