Benton Hall, named for benefactor Otis L. Benton, opened in 1923. Originally a dormitory, Benton Hall was renovated several times and is now where you’ll find the Leadership Institute, the Center for Community Service, Academic Outreach, and the School of Applied Studies, which includes four departments and awards about 40 percent of all undergraduate degrees at Washburn. Its medical sonography program is among the nation's largest. Trivia: Benton Hall has been housing for women, men and during World War II it housed military trainees.
