Ada Dodge Memorial Hall, 1871

Originally constructed in 1871, the hall was enlarged in 1885 with a grant from Dr. D. Stuart Dodge who named it in memory of his daughter Ada. The hall was first used by the Preparatory Department, now International College, and from 1900 it served as an administration building. In 1962-63, Ada Dodge Hall was remodeled to house the main cafeteria, a milk bar, a faculty dining room/lounge, and the Post Office. Later, the AUB bookstore was added.
