Many students and alumni might be surprised that one of our dormitories won a national award. In 1968, Clarke Tower won a Project Design Merit Award from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Clarke Tower, named for John Hessin Clarke, an alumnus and former U. S. Supreme Court Justice, was originally a men's dorm, providing housing for 320. Completed in 1967, it was Western Reserve University's first high-rise residence hall.
