Building History: 

Smith Hall is named after James A. Smith of Osage, Iowa – a trustee of the College and a State Representative.

Formerly a bastion of men’s intramural prowess, Smith Hall is the southernmost of the original chain of the North Campus men’s residence halls.

Before Cowles Hall opened at the end of World War II, the kitchens for the North Campus dining hall, located adjoining in the basement of Langan, were in the basement of Smith.
