    Angell Hall is cube-style residence hall that is home to approximately 400 students; including a combination of first-year and upperclass residents. Cube-style residence halls are comprised of two or three, four story cube-shaped buildings, interconnected by hallways between the cubes, and is single-sexed by floor. Resident rooms comprise the outside walls of the structure, and surround a common stairwell and shared bathroom space. The term traditional means that residents in this building live in standard double rooms, with a shared bathroom facility. Angell Hall has plenty of space for studying and socializing and also has a quiet study, an open exercise room, a game room (with a pool table and foosball table), and a computer lab.

    The front desk in Angell Hall offers not only mail and package deliveries (mailboxes are located in the basement), but also pizzas for sale and rentable cleaning, cooking, and entertainment supplies. Best of all, Angell Hall is just across the street from Whitney Dining Center and the student health center.

    Rena Angell
    • Taught at UW-L from 1912-1951 (39 years)
    • Department: Art (courses included Drawing, Art Apprec, Applied Art, Industrial Art, and Rural Handiwork
    • Angell was a VERY popular teacher and her classes always filled up fast. Students enjoyed her tenacious personality and attention to detail
    • Was originally going to leave La Crosse Normal School to accept a teaching position at Miami University (Ohio) after 1 year, but President Fassett Cotton convinced her to stay
    • By 1950, her hands were so crippled she couldn’t hold a paint brush. That didn’t stop Rena from painting though! She would hold the brush between her teeth and paint away
    • Was the longtime advisor for Lambda Sigma Chi sorority (disbanded in 1984 as Delta Zeta)
