Named in honor of Clara H. Waldo, the first woman to serve on any Board of Regents of a higher education institution in Oregon, Waldo Hall is now quite famous for its tales of ghostly hauntings and imposing facade. When it was completed in 1907, it was a “modern facility,” with 115 rooms that could accommodate up to 300 women. Not only was it a living space for students and female faculty, the building also included Domestic Science labs and classrooms.
Waldo was used as a dorm until 1965, until its poor condition called for a major renovation; at that time, it was completely remodeled into a space for university offices.
