Rather Hall

Brody Neighborhood

Located on the northwest corner of Brody Neighborhood, Rather Hall opened in 1954 and is named after Howard C. Rather, an MSU alumnus and professor of farm crops. When the hall first opened, it was boasted to offer the most modern conveniences for its residents in the country. Today, Rather Hall is known for its contemporary, vibrant design. Recently updated in 2012, the hall is home to the Charles Drew Science Enrichment Laboratory program’s living-learning community, which provides academic and social support for high achieving students pursuing science and math degrees, including individuals interested in professional health and science careers.
