In the Beginning

Alexander Hall, shown here in an undated photo from the early 20th century, is the oldest building on campus. Completed in 1893, it has housed students, classrooms, the campus dining hall, a chapel, and faculty offices. The building is on the Washington State Register of Historic Places.
