Two campus buildings undergo name changes this spring

Tuesday, February 14th, 2017

Two of the university’s buildings have undergone name changes this spring, with Coffin Residence Hall and Gulley House being renamed Gulley Residence Hall and Hiebert House, respectively.

Gulley Hall is named in honor of Emmett W. Gulley, president of then-Pacific College from 1941 to 1948. The name change continues a trend of key campus residence halls being named in honor of former presidents (Brandt Hall, Le Shana Hall, Pennington Hall, etc.).

In conjunction with the new residence hall name, the Gulley House will now be known as Hiebert House, in honor of Roy Hiebert, affectionately known as “Grandpa Roy” on campus for four decades. He died in 2016 at the age of 92.
