Riley, Berntsen, Totino, Ericksen, Moyer and Hartill are names students recognize every day around campus at the University of Northwestern – St. Paul. Where did these names come from? Who were these people that earned the name of a building?
In the 1970s, engagement announcements were quite different for female students. A candlelighting ceremony would be held in an end lounge, where the RD would have the ring tied to a taper candle by a ribbon, which was passed around in a circle.
Mark Baden, professor of art and graphic design, has extensively researched some of the buildings on campus. He discusses Nazareth Hall, the Chapel on the island and Riley Gym.
