About Clothier Hall:

Clothier Hall, the social hub of the campus, features Essie Mae's snack bar; a game room; Tarble All-Campus Space used for dances and other events; and Paces, a student coffeehouse. It is also the location of the College Bookstore, which is independently owned and operated by the College.

The College's Intercultural Center (IC) is also housed in Clothier Hall. The IC supports the exploration of diverse heritages, political perspectives, and social and cultural experiences by offering a wide range of co-curricular activities and programs throughout the academic year. It provides both small spaces for private meetings and a large meeting room for collective events.

The base of the Clothier Bell Tower offers wonderful acoustics and is often the location of student a cappella concerts and rehearsals.
