There are six student dormitories on West Circle Drive on the MSU campus, and all six are named for notable women in the school’s history.

WKAR’s Scott Pohl met up with MSU archivist Megan Malone for a Women’s History Month walk around West Circle Drive to learn about these six women. They started at Williams Hall.

These historic women are Sarah Langdon Williams, Maude Gilchrist, Elida Yakeley, Linda Landon, Louise Hathaway Campbell, and Mary Mayo.
