Moore-Strong Hall

Moore-Strong Hall, the headquarters of Strong College, was built in 1960 and renovated in 1994. While it suffered aesthetically from being a modern building, the members of the College made it a warm and inviting home. The photos below were taken by Strong College Senior Tutor Dr. Robert O’Hara between 1994 and 2000.
