From the unique hall mascot (an aardvark) to the hall crest, Battenfeld residents are proud of their individuality and long traditions. Battenfeld is a mix of two-, three-, and four-man rooms/suites. The backyard deck is a popular addition that “B-felders” built. Highlights of the social year are “Casino Night” and the annual JCB (John Curry Battenfeld) Awards Banquet.
