Frances Crawford Hall is named in honor of Frances Crawford, a 1918 graduate of Ouachita. Ms. Crawford later worked at Ouachita for six decades. From the time of its completion in the late 1960s until 2009, Frances Crawford Hall was home to another Ouachita legend, Rosemary Chu. “Mom Chu” lovingly served as Frances Crawford West’s Hall Director for 42 years.
Frances Crawford Hall has an East and West wing, each housing 147 freshmen and upperclass women. Arranged in suites, each room has its own sink and shares bathroom facilities with the adjacent room.
