SU Dorms: Day Hall
Kanika Teng (306 words)
Day Hall is a dormitory on the Syracuse University Campus. It is located at 1 Mount Olympus Drive and was built in 1958. .
Day Hall is located to the left of the Women’s Building in an area known as Mount Olympus. The nickname comes from its street address mainly (located on Mount Olympics Drive), but it’s also called this because the dormitory is located at the top of a very high hill. One of the biggest critiques of living in this dorm is having to take the steps up and down to go to and from campus. However, once off the steps, the resident is basically on the Syracuse campus. Day Hall is about five minutes away from the quad (walking down - walking up takes a bit longer). Residents have said that they get used to the steps, but it is definitely a reason why many students chose not to live in Day Hall or in its neighbor hall, Flint Hall.
