Palmer Hall houses administrative offices, such as the Admissions Offices, the Registrar's Office, and the Financial Aid Office. Palmer Auditorium is used for Orientation events, Founders Day, commencement ceremonies, and - perhaps most notably- the annual College Night performances.
Backstory and Context
One of its most impressive features is its Holtkamp organ, located on the wall of Palmer Auditorium. It is played during commencement ceremonies and other prestigious campus events. The auditorium is also the home of the College Night performances, as well as various presentations and awards events on campus. The front steps of Palmer are used as meeting places for various College Night events like the Ribbon Hanging, as well as for Greek life events such as Sorority Bid Day.
