Established in 2009, Ryan Hall is named in honor of the Ryan Hall family and was built in the spirit of accommodation and accessibility for students with disabilities. With signature events such as Wheelchair Basketball, Relay for Life, and Caring Cats Clothing Collection to benefit St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph County, the women of Ryan are dedicated to serving the local South Bend community. One major tradition in Ryan occurs every Tuesday night when Ryan Hall’s Priest-in-Residence, Fr. Joe Carey, C.S.C., hosts Ryan Hall residents for “FJ’s," an ice cream and cookie social in his apartment in which all treats are baked from scratch. Ryan was last named Hall of the Year in 2013-2014.
