Eliot Hall

Eliot Hall houses classrooms and administrative/faculty offices. The building’s brick and limestone are patterned after St. John’s College at Oxford. Read about namesake Thomas Lamb Eliot on the dedication plaque at the south entrance of the building, and view the Reed College seal inscribed above the entrance to the admission office. The college’s unofficial mascot, the griffin, is inscribed in the center of the seal. Taken from the coat of arms of the Simeon Reed family, the griffin is a mythical half-eagle/half-lion who is the enemy of ignorance. The chapel on the third floor includes architectural details that date back to the tenth century.
