Phoebe Hearst Hall was built in
1915 in the handsome neo-Gothic architecture that dominates the Oglethorpe campus.
Renovated in 1972, it is the main classroom and faculty office building. The dominant feature of the building is the
beautiful Great Hall, the site of many traditional and historic events at Oglethorpe. The
building is named in honor of Phoebe Apperson Hearst, the mother of benefactor and
publisher William Randolph Hearst, Sr. Located on the lower level is the University
Bookstore and the much-publicized Crypt of Civilization.
The next stop is Goodman Hall
