Cooking at Miller Hall.

New women are assigned a “big sister” to help adjust to college life and learn long-held Miller traditions such as the annual Alumni Tea, the “Joe’s Place” party (started in the 1930s), Miller-Watkins Tribute Night, and a “Murder Mystery Dinner.” As in Watkins, monthly kitchen fees are determined by residents who are each assigned to one of seven small kitchens.

For the 2019-20 school year, changes were made to the sleeping porches to accommodate COVID-19 regulations. Those same changes to the sleeping porches will be in effect for the 2020-21 school year. In both Miller and Watkins halls, due to recommended guidelines for physical distancing, sleeping areas will be moved from the shared community porches to the individual student rooms.
