Oswald Hall, on the south end of the complex that includes Oswald, Daisy Hill Commons, and Self Hall, is named for alumnus Charles W. "Charley" Oswald. His $22 million in lifetime giving included the creation of four professorships in the Department of Economics, as well as funds for faculty research in the department, along with unrestricted gifts. Its rooms include two- and four-person suites, and private bedroom with shared bath. Oswald is part of the freshman-focused Daisy Hill and will be reserved for newly admitted freshman only.
