The Spirits of Roth Hall
While many times memorials are hot vacation spots with well known history, sometimes
the best memorials are the ones right under our noses. We have all been to Roth Memorial Hall
here on the Thiel campus. You may have heard about the ghost that some say dwells there.
order to verify these stories, we must first know the history behind that building.
There is much
to be learned in the past, however today the building is very much still in use.
productivity of this memorial also plays a huge role in its importance. We have all visited the
building and made use of its services at one time or another.
Although Roth Hall has an
elaborate history, it still proves itself to be the heartbeat of a campus.
In order to understand the significance of this memorial, we first need to understand for
whom it was erected.
Roth Hall was built for the first and fourth president of Thiel College,
