Rathburn Hall

​Rathburn Hall​​

Rathburn Hall provides a centralized hub for offices, training spaces and religious activities. Available to all campus groups, the facility creates expanded opportunities including summer conferences, church retreats and special speakers for ministry programs.  Adjacent to Harbison Chapel, the 16,500-square-foot building with one-and-a-half floors complements the Chapel architecture and is constructed of Briar Hill Sandstone (from the same quarry as Harbison Chapel, Crawford Hall, Rainbow Bridge and Buhl Library).

At $7 million, Rathburn Hall was a campaign priority of Grove City Matters: A Campaign to Advance Grove City College. In the spring of 2010, the Rathburn family announced a $3 million gift towards the project and the Board of Trustees voted in 2011 to name the building Rathburn Hall, in the family’s honor.

The Morledge Great Room honors former Dean of the Chapel The Rev. Dr. Richard A. Morledge '54 (Dean 1984-99). This fellowship room holds both lectures and banquets. Other rooms include the Grace Room, a student lounge, meeting rooms, a prayer room and work room.
