Thursday, October 16, 2008JOHNSON CITY—East Tennessee State University’s oldest student residence, Mayetta Carter Hall, opened in the fall of 1911 and was named for the wife of George L. Carter, the benefactor who donated 120 acres upon which the university’s main campus was built.
The structure, last renovated in 1980, has recently completed extensive updates, including a new HVAC system; sprinklers; new electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems; room and hall carpeting; room and lobby furniture; an elevator; new windows; and many other improvements to give the 146 women in residence modern comforts while retaining the grace and charm of the landmark building.
The ETSU Office of Housing and Residence Life will hold a Carter Hall Open House on Friday, Oct. 17, from 2-4:30 p.m. Visitors will again be welcomed at the Buccaneer BASH Homecoming celebration, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., on Saturday, Oct. 18.
To enter the residence hall, visitors should go to the main door, which faces Roy S. Nicks Hall, or go to the elevator on the north corner, facing Lamb Hall.
