Constructed in 1997 as a women’s residence hall through the contributions of Terrance and Barbara McGlinn, McGlinn Hall is located on the West Quad near McGlinn Fields. The women of McGlinn participate in numerous service events and are extremely involved with the students of Saint Adalbert Catholic School in South Bend. Each year, McGlinn residents raise money for the school through the hall’s annual Casino Night and tutor students every week throughout the academic year. McGlinn is also known for its camaraderie, winning the Kelly Cup, awarded to the women’s hall that best exemplifies the spirit of RecSports’ interhall participation, sportsmanship, and competition, more than any other female hall to date.
