Stockbridge Hall

Stockbridge is more than just a building, it is a community where residents respect one another, and support each other as they navigate this uncharted territory we call college. The Hall Director along with the Resident Assistants strive to make a positive impact, help students overcome obstacles, and help build connections and community. We hope that residents will get involved in Hall Government so that they can continue to put on amazing events like Leaf Bowl (Flag Football vs. Churchill), Super Smash Bros. Tournament, Super Bowl Party, March Madness, and End of the Year grill out.

Hi, My name is Giovanni Escalera, I am the Stockbridge Hall Director at North Dakota State University. I am a California native born and raised. I went to California State University, San Bernardino where I received my Bachelors in Political Science and a Minor in Spanish. I went on to receive my Master's degree at The University of Central Missouri in College Student Personnel.  

 I enjoy being a Hall Director because I get to work with amazing students and get to see them transform into adults. I remember the first time I lived on campus and all the emotions I had knowing that I was moving away from home. I hope that we will be able to make the transition smooth for you with the help of the RA's that will be living in your community.

History

In 1955 the State Legislature and the State Bank of North Dakota approved a $600,000 loan to the University for the construction of a new men's residence building. The building was completed in March 1957 and was ready for students the following year. The new residence hall housed 250 men--two men per room. Each room was furnished with two single beds, a chest of drawers and a built-in wardrobe as well as providing both occupants with their own study area (Fargo Forum December 16, 1955; NDAC Alumni Review, March 1957, p. 3).

The new building was a three-story structure measuring 410 feet by 60 feet. The first floor was, perhaps, the most attractive as it contained a furnished lounge with a television viewing area. It also housed the residence hall office and a private room for conferences or parental visits. A completely furnished guest room with a bathroom was also located on the first floor. The manager's apartment complete with a dinette, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom was located on the first floor. The basement contained a large recreation room and a large storage room for the students' luggage. The remaining floors were reserved for student rooms.

The new men's residence was named Stockbridge Hall in honor of the University's first president, Horace E. Stockbridge. Stockbridge was born in 1857 in Hadley, Massachusetts. He attended the Massachusetts Agricultural College and Goettingen University in Germany. He returned to the United States as an associate professor of chemistry at the Massachusetts Agricultural College before leaving to accept a position at the Imperial College of Agriculture and Engineering in Japan. Stockbridge left Japan in 1889 and came to the North Dakota Agricultural College in 1890 to serve as its first president, at the age of thirty-three. He resigned in 1893 and went to Florida State University where he was a professor of agriculture until 1906. Dr. Stockbridge died in 1930.
