Prewitt/Van Gilder Hall

Prewitt and Van Gilder Hall is two halls in one building, divided into gender-specific floors. Prewitt Hall is home to about 70 women and is named for Mildred Prewitt, a lifelong supporter of the University. Van Gilder Hall is home to about 75 men and is named for Dr. H. O. Van Gilder, the University’s fourth president. Some of PVG’s facilities include community bathrooms, a massive community space for its residents to enjoy, a full kitchen, two quiet study rooms, and a movie room.

PVG hosts another long-standing tradition, Mr. VG, where Corban men compete in a battle of wits, talent, and hilarity.

Some other events that occur in the residence halls are weekly Bible studies between small groups, RA-led outings and activities, and monthly community gatherings with your residence hall.
