Whitney Hall

Whitney Hall derives its name form Col. Bingham's land agent, George Whiney. To show his apreciation for all the "good work," Col Bingham gave Whitney some land north of Binghamton, which today is aptly named, Whitney point.

During the Spring semester of the 1995 academic year, Whitney Hall residents voted out the "24 hour study hours." Although the rule no longer exists, the connotations of Whitney Hall being an "academically-oriented lifestyle" still lives on. Students use the study lounge on a regular basis and have even coordinated their own informal text book exchange system among themselves.

Whitney Hall also offered for the first time this year the residential style of Chemical Free Living. The floor shares the commitment that all the floor member s and their guests agree to keep their living area free from substances such as alcohol, cigarettes, tobacco products and illegal drugs. The floor's unique bond and living style was recently celebrated by a local TV news feature story. Chemical Free Living option is alive and well in Whitney Hall.
