This exhibit is the combined work of Trent Margrif’s First Year Seminar and Dr. Kristen Baldwin-Deathridge’s Digital History class at Appalachian State University. In this project, students explored some of the dormitories across campus, researching their histories and the individuals who they were named after.

Some buildings and their namesakes had more information than others.

This exhibit does not include research into every residential building on campus, such as Mountaineer or Summit, because these were not named after people.
