Sevrinson Hall History
Sevrinson Hall was one of the two high-rises to be built on the NDSU campus in 1967 as part of the "Gemini Project." The "Gemini Project" was the construction of two identical high-rises (the other being Thompson Hall). The high-rise is a nine-story structure that houses 272 students.
In 1969, the high-rise was named Sevrinson Hall in honor of Charles Sevrinson, Dean of Students from 1948 to 1964. Sevrinson was born on May 6, 1898 at Reynolds, North Dakota. He graduated from Mayville State Teachers College in 1921. Sevrinson later attended the University of North Dakota earning a bachelor's degree in 1924 and a master's degree in 1930.
Sevrinson began his educational career as a one-room school teacher before becoming the superintendent at Reynolds, North Dakota and the junior high school principal at Williston, North Dakota. In 1928, he came to the NDAC as an instructor in history. In 1938, Sevrinson rose to the rank of Professor of Education, Dean of Men and Assistant to the President. In 1948, he was made Dean of Students. Sevrinson held this position until his retirement in 1964. He died in 1986.
