Dwight Hall

Harkness Tower with the word "Sample" printed over itDwight Hall attracted many activist-minded students. These were almost exclusively amateur agitators applying what they viewed as Christian values to society’s ills. It was great fun! David Warren, later president of Wesleyan University, drafted me into participation in a summer program for 12-14 year olds from an inner-city school and a suburban school. It was a pivotal time in my emotional and educational growth as I had never borne responsibility for communicating with young people of that age and from such diverse backgrounds.

Dwight Hall was accessible from the street side as well as from the Old Campus. I believe the building remains much the same, and am sure the members continue to pursue socially responsible goals.
