Built 1907-1909 by the students of early forestry classes from trees and sandstone in the nearby hills, Conklin Hall served as a dormitory until 1989. It was named for Robert Conklin, the Pennsylvania Commissioner of Forestry who supervised its construction. In the early days, it included classrooms and a wood laboratory. Renovated 1993-1994 with support from alumni, local businesses and industries, and the University, it reopened in 1994 as a student center.

One early yearbook said of Conklin Hall: "No matter what the future, the days here will be the ones remembered when age brings quiet contemplation."
