Historical Overview

Five residence halls are named after people who made a difference at Tarleton. Bender Hall is named after Lt. Col. James D. Bender, a professor of Military Science from 1937–1942. Ferguson Hall is named for George Oliver Ferguson, Associate Dean and Head of the History Department from 1919–1950 and named professor emeritus. Gough Hall named after Lula C. Gough, Associate Professor of Biology from 1921–1950; Moody Hall is named after Mrs. W. E. Moody, residence hall manager during the 1930s; and the Hunewell Hall and Annex are named for D. G. Hunewell, Band Director from 1920–1942.

Crockett Hall was purchased from a private contractor in 1965. For many years it served at the athletic residence hall. It even featured it’s own dining facility. In addition, Coed Hall was completed in 1984. This facility was unique because it was the first “pre-fab” modular construction on campus. The building underwent an extensive renovation during the Summer of 2004. It was re-named Traditions Hall in 2004. Texan Village was completed in the Fall of 2002. It was the first university-built apartment building in Tarleton’s history. Centennial Hall was completed in the Fall of 2004. It is the largest residence hall on campus, housing over 400 students. It was built to house incoming freshman.
