Luter Residence Hall

If you don’t know the name of Joseph Williamson Luter III (’61), you may know Smithfield Foods, the sausage company his family has owned since 1936. A boar’s profile represents the company in the dorm’s seal. Mr. Luter is an esteemed University supporter who served on the Board of Trustees from 1997-2001. The dorm’s spacious commons area hosted a concert featuring Australian folk rocker Jennifer Knapp in 2012. Learn more about this hall at

Famous Alumni: Zachary Andrew Klein (’04), co-founder of video-sharing website Vimeo, and 2012 U.S. Open golf champion Webb Simpson (’08) are former Luter residents.
