The Brown House

In the 1930s, the Brown House was an elegant country-style building used by students for afternoon tea. Twenty years later, the college newspaper, “The Habit,” requested that students contribute suggestions for names for the teahouse. Despite numerous attempts to designate the perfect name, in the end the buildings nickname won out: “The Brown House”. The former Student Union and headquarters for the Associated Students of Dominican University (ASDU), The Brown House now houses the Art Department faculty and classes.
