Johnson Residence Hall, an original Reynolda Campus building, is named for Lois Johnson, Dean of Women from 1942-62. She presided over the arrival of women students in 1942 and defended their rights to equality with men. Dean Johnson retired in 1962. Although known for her numerous and specific rules of conduct, Dean Johnson earned the respect of the students under her direction and received the Medallion of Merit in 1973. The eyes on the seal represent the namesake’s watchful but well-intentioned administration. Johnson is a co-ed, corridor-style building housing first-year students.
