Couzens Hall in August 2013 (CC-BY-SA-3.0 Michael Barera)

Couzens Hall is one of the Hill dorms.

James Couzens, a United States Senator from Michigan, donated the $600,000 necessary to complete the residence hall. Couzens Hall was built in 1926 to house female nursing students. The facility remained exclusively female until the '69-'70 academic year, when it became co-educational.
