Constructed in 1981, Pasquerilla West was the first Notre Dame building intended to be a women's residence hall.  Frank and Sylvia Pasquerilla provided funding for the construction of both Pasquerilla East and West Halls. At the time, their donation was the largest in Notre Dame history to be given by a living person.  The women of Pasquerilla West have been known as everything from the “Pink Wizards” to the “Plaid Wave,” but are now proudly the “Purple Weasels.” Their color is purple and they trumpet their motto “Peace, Love, P-Dub” where ever they go.
