Pasquerilla West Hall

Pasquerilla West Hall

Established in 1981, Pasquerilla West is one of two residence halls made possible by the generosity of Frank and Sylvia Pasquerilla. Constructed with the specific intention of housing female undergraduate residents, both Pasquerilla West and Pasquerilla East were built with the provision that Pasquerilla’s twin daughters would each occupy one hall their senior year. At the time, their donation was the largest in Notre Dame history to be given by a living person. During the first full week of February, PW hosts its annual spirit week, Queen Week, in which each section competes in various events to crown a first-year student as “Queen.” The PW color is purple and they trumpet their motto, “Peace, Love, P-Dub” wherever they go.

Rector

Annie Boyle

Annie Boyle

Annie Boyle received both her bachelor’s degree (PLS) and Master of Theological Studies degree from Notre Dame and cherishes these formative experiences of Holy Cross-guided education and community. Before graduate school, she spent time with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest and also grew to love Ignatian spirituality, especially its teachings on discernment. Most recently, Annie served as a Campus Minister at the University of Portland, where she had the privilege of accompanying students in their exploration of faith, spirituality, and young adulthood. She enjoys catching up over coffee, playing the piano, and spending as much time outdoors as possible.

“Hall life was a richly meaningful piece of my undergraduate experience, and I am humbled to step into the rector role that is so integral to these communities. I look forward to joining in the University’s shared work of nourishing hearts and minds and to knowing and learning from our extraordinary students.”
