Organizational History:

McCroskey Hall was built in 1920 and named after long-time Regent R. C. McCroskey. It has consistently been used as a women's dormitory except during World War II and the early 1950's when it was used for male housing. The house government consists of elected officers who form an executive council. Kroskey Club was formed in 1931 as an organization of selected upperclassmen to support the council and plan special activities. It was disbanded in 1937.
