Named in honor of Ruth Stribling, daughter of Mr.& Mrs. J.C. Stribling whose gift made the building possible. The three-story building was completed in 1921 and renovated in 1992. It is the only residence hall on campus that is made up exclusively of private rooms and houses 85 female residents. Centrally located on the quad, this three-story building is within easy walking distance to the dining hall, Crusader Café located in Mabee Student Center, the library, Mayborn Campus Center and all academic buildings.
