Campus Virtual Tour

Old Welles

Welles Hall, used for banquets and meetings in recent years, once again houses the student dining room, the purpose for which it was originally built in 1939. It was named after Frank R. Welles of Paris, France, from whose estate the money for the building was received. The Bridge of Life, a mural by Philip Evergood, adorns the east wall of Welles Dining Room. The mural, made possible by a gift from the Carnegie Corporation, was done over a period of two years, from 1940 to 1942.

Straight ahead down the walk is the Hicks Center entrance. Turn to your left to climb the stairs toward Stetson Chapel; or turn all the way around and walk up the path toward DeWaters Residence Hall.
