Dedicated in honor of Joseph O’Neill, Jr. ’37, and funded by the O’Neill family, O’Neill Family Hall was the first men’s residence hall built on West Quad. At the time of its construction in 1996, O’Neill was also the first hall built for men since Flanner and Grace Halls in 1969. O’Neill is deeply committed the South Bend Center for the Homeless. In October, O’Neill hosts “Without a Home,” in which the men of the hall hold a vigil throughout the night to raise awareness and funds to aid the Center. Service trips are ongoing, and Sunday Mass collections are donated to the Center for the Homeless as well.  O’Neill also annually hosts the Ms. ND Pageant in which contestants from each female residence hall compete for the title of “Ms. ND.” O’Neill was last named Hall of the Year in 2006-2007.
