The men of “Grace’s Place” are the two-year champions of Schol Hall Olympics intra-hall competition that occurs during Hawk Week. Stop by the hall and see their collection of basketball memorabilia in the trophy case, or celebrate their traditions of the Annual Coffee House or Valentine’s Day Formal. Grace Pearson is comprised of four-person rooms and is referred to as “GP” to avoid confusion with Pearson Scholarship Hall
