Founder's Hall!

Hi all!

Today I wanted to talk about Founder's Hall.

First, I'll start off with a fun fact. When St. Mike's opened in 1904, Founder's Hall was the entire college. It contained classrooms, the dorms, and the dining hall! Hard to believe that we have expanded so much in the past one hundred and ten years!

Founder's Hall is still in use today. It contains offices like the Registrar, the Dean's office, and the President's office.. These offices may not be something we think about every day, but when we need them they can be a huge help!!

This yellow building is attached to Founder's Hall and called Founder's Annex. In this building, you will find an assortment of offices, including the Financial Aid office.

The top part of the building actually inspired the Saint Michael's College logo. The tower with a cross can be seen in many of the SMC insignia.


Most students visit Founder's Hall to visit the Registrar's office. The Registrar's office is where you go to declare a major or minor, change your adviser, or get a copy of your transcript. You can also talk to the Registrar about transferring credits and registering for classes. 

Outside the Registrar's office, they have a bulletin board with lots of helpful information. This bulletin board includes information like every professor's office, and which classes have seats available in them.

Hope that gave you some information about a really important building on campus! As always, if you have any questions about Founder's Hall or SMC life in general, feel free to contact me!
