St. Lawrence History gurus say: 48 Park was built in 1930. It was first used by the Greek fraternity Sigma Pi until the late 1970's, when the fraternity moved to a building at the location of the current Diana B. Torrey Health and Counseloing Center. Since that time the building has been used as a residential hall.
Students say: “48 Park is the building to choose if you want to live someplace comfortable and quiet. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Everyone says 'hi' to each other when we pass in the halls, and neighbors are generally considerate. If you have good neighbors, there isn't much noise. You can study all day and night. The only real issues come from people outside going downtown on the weekends, and the train, before you get used to it. The rooms also keep sound in pretty well, so you can play music in your room at a decent volume, and walk outside of it to a silent hallway. My room is larger than a lot of other singles, even if not by much, so that's good. I also have an actual closet, so I have room for all of my clothes. The only thing that I dislike about my room is the carpet. It's near impossible to clean if I spill anything on it.” Richelle Davis, ‘13
