Built in 1988 by the generosity of the Robert ('37) and Ray ('65) Siegfried of Tulsa, Oklahoma, residents of Siegfried Hall first called themselves "The Slammers" but in 1997 became "The Ramblers," the name by which Notre Dame's athletic teams were known before they were called the "Fighting Irish." From the beginning, Siegfried's interhall athletic squads have been known for their competitiveness and winning ways. The "Hall of Champions" proudly boasts serial championships in all sports. Hall colors are maroon and white.
