Holden Hall

Holden Hall

South Neighborhood

Holden Hall was renovated in 2009 and is known by Spartans for its bold splashes of color and the "fishbowl lounge," often considered the best study spot on campus. Holden Hall houses the Academic Scholars Program, the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) and the High School Equivalency Program (HEP). The hall is also home to the Holden dining hall and a Sparty’s Refresh.

Fun fact: Holden Hall is named after James and Lynelle Holden. James was a State Agricultural student in 1889.
