Two academic programs and their faculty and staff have new office locations at the Edward Everett Rall House, 329 S. Brainard St., starting winter term.
The College Honors Programs, formerly the Office of Academic Opportunities and housed in Kiekhofer Hall, and the Entrepreneurship Program, formerly in the 119 S. Loomis House, are located on the second floor of the Rall House. The first floor features all-college meeting and conference rooms, which can be reserved through the College’s web calendar early winter term.
The College Honors Programs include offices for Perry Hamalis, director of College Honors Programs, Cecelia Schneller Mueller Professor of Religion and associate professor of religious studies; Sandra Chapman, assistant to the director of College Honors Programs; and Anna Wirtz, secretary, Academic Support Services and College Honors Programs. A reading room and study room for College Scholars are also on the second floor.

Built in 1917, the Rall House was purchased in 1929 by Charles R. Rall, brother of then-President Edward Everett Rall, for the president’s residence. It was home to five North Central College presidents and their families: Rall, C. Harve Geiger, Arlo L. Schilling, Gael D. Swing and Harold R. Wilde.
