Established in 1981, Pasquerilla West is one of two residence halls made possible by the generosity of Frank and Sylvia Pasquerilla. Constructed with the specific intention of housing female undergraduate residents, both Pasquerilla West and Pasquerilla East were built with the provision that Pasquerilla’s twin daughters would each occupy one hall their senior year. At the time, their donation was the largest in Notre Dame history to be given by a living person. During the first full week of February, PW hosts its annual spirit week, Queen Week, in which each section competes in various events to crown a first-year student as “Queen.” The PW color is purple and they trumpet their motto, “Peace, Love, P-Dub” wherever they go.
