Thompson Hall History
Thompson 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 Severinson Hall). The high-rise is a nine-story structure that houses 272 students.
In 1969, the high-rise was named Thompson Hall in honor of Matilda Thompson, Dean of Women from 1957 to 1963. Thompson earned a degree in teaching from Valley City Teachers College in 1915 and a bachelor's degree in chemistry and natural sciences from NDAC (SU) in 1921. In 1929, she earned a master's degree in mathematics and guidance from Columbia University.
After teaching high school for a six year period, with a two year interruption while attending NDAC, Thompson joined the NDAC faculty in 1923 as an instructor in mathematics and rose to the rank of full professor in 1958. In 1957, Thompson was made Dean of Women. She resigned in 1963 as Dean of Women and returned to teaching mathematics. Thompson retired in 1965.
