Demarest Hall is a traditional residence hall built in 1950. Demarest hosts a number of special interest sections focused on subjects in the arts, humanities, and social sciences. These groups foster an engaged and diverse community as well as a noted pride for living in Demarest. The students of Demarest also host frequent events, including coffeehouses, art shows, drag shows, band nights, and more. There is a lot of variety in the dimensions and layout of rooms in Demarest, further contributing to its unique nature.
