East College

East College was a three-story structure, built in 1842 as a dormitory, along with West College and two houses intended to be residences for professors, but shortly used for institutional purposes instead (East Dwelling House and West Dwelling House), at a combined cost of $20,965.18. The contractor was Thomas Crutchfield, who had also built Old College. East College was designated as B Building in the 1889–90 Students’ Handbook. East College, West College, and the 1828 Old College were razed in 1919 for the construction of Ayres Hall.
