  • Doyle Hall in winter

Doyle hall was created as a seminary for friars that were on campus in the 1960's. Currently the building is used as an-on campus dormitory for students who appreciate its large rooms. Doyle hall is also used to host events on campus in the Doyle Trustees room and the University Chapel. The building also houses the Student Wellness Center, where students can receive medical attention from a nurse practitioner. For those with ailments of the heart and not the body, the wellness center also houses 5 counselors who are trained in trauma, and addiction therapy. I needed five more words to submit.
