HAPY Hall was first created as a male dormitory and was completed in 1946. Two wings were added to this building, McCurry and Suttle, after WWII in 1948 which was “to symbolize a new Gardner-Webb campus.” Suttle Hall is no longer used as a place for living for students but is office to different departments in Student Development. Residence Education and Housing and Campus Ministries are located on this side of HAPY. McCurry wing still houses males. The main part of the building has three levels or floors for females to reside. HAPY is located behind the Webb building and is to the right of the DCC and Hamrick Hall.
