Taking a look at WLU buildings and history

By Josh Smith, Contributing Writer

West Liberty University is home to a variety of unique and historic buildings. From tall, white pillars, to beautiful brick structures, the hilltop houses some historically-rich buildings, ranging from campus facilities and residence halls. Currently, WLU offers five dormitories on the campus grounds: Hughes Hall, Bonar Hall, Curtis Hall, Beta Hall and Krise Hall; two former dorms, Boyd and Rogers Halls, are expected to re-open next school year.

Students eat, sleep and live in these buildings, but most, if not any, do not know where they got their names. In this article, I will state the brief history and where WLU’s various dormitories and campus facilities got their names.
