Question: What is the oldest residential college on the South 40?

Answer: C) Liggett/Koenig. It may be surprising because Liggett/Koenig was renovated in 2006, but the residential college was founded in 1960. The first Koenig Hall, a men’s dorm, opened to students in fall 1959, one of the first structures on the South 40.

Congrats to this week’s winner, Meg McClelland, who works in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences in Arts & Sciences and will receive an “I Knew WashU” luggage tag!
