“Farwell Compton”

“King’s Hall and Gillard house which have been a tradition for first year students and a few returning students, are closing its doors. “I just hate to see it go. I love it out here. The spirit was just something else, “ commented Assistant Director of Residence Jeanne Eddisford.

Eddisford feels that Compton… offered friendliness in a structured environment. She added that the feeling of coming home at night was something not offered in other residences. Eddisford has many cherished memories of King’s Hall. She remembers with delight the times she was doused unexpectedly with water as she walked out of her office and the time the kitchen caught on fire while she was entertaining administration. “
