Dennis E. Rieger opened in 2005. This building features some two-person rooms (sharing a small community bath) and four-person suites. Some hall traditions include “Fireplace Chats” and father-daughter weekends. Rieger is a twin building with the adjacent scholarship hall, Krehbiel Hall, which opened in 2008. The hall features energy-efficient geothermal heating and cooling and blends in with the neighborhood’s turn of the century homes.
