Johnson Residence Hall

Johnson Residence Hall, an original Reynolda Campus building, is named for Lois Johnson, Dean of Women from 1942-62. Although known for her numerous and specific rules of conduct, Dean Johnson earned the respect of the students under her direction and received the Medallion of Merit in 1973. The eyes on the seal represent the namesake’s watchful but well-intentioned administration. To learn more about this hall, visit rlh.wfu.edu/johnson.

Famous Alumni: Musician and singer Roman GianArthur (’10) and two Rhodes Scholars have called Johnson their home hall: Maria Merritt (’87) and Brandon Turner (’12).
