Kremmeter Hall | Benedictine College

Kremmeter Hall

In the fall of 2008, Kremmeter hall was completed.  Kremmeter hall was named in honor of Mother Evangelista Kremmeter, the first prioress at Mount St. Scholastica. The Hall houses junior and senior women. The complex was completed during the sesquicentennial of Benedictine College, emphasizing the residential tradition the school carries forward. The Apartments offer students the luxury of living in an apartment while still being on campus. Other features include a class room and two conference rooms.
