A new name for New Hall

May 11, 2017

Shirley Hilger spent 33 years traveling the world to recruit students to become Pioneers and attend Carroll just as she did, graduating in 1943. She was beloved by many because of her lively spirit and enthusiasm for higher education. As director of admissions, Hilger was responsible for recruiting thousands of students over the course of her career, including noteworthy graduates like Dr. Howard Fuller ‘62, former superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools; Ricardo Diaz ‘74, executive director of the United Community Center; and José Olivieri ‘78, partner at Michael Best and current chair of Carroll University’s Board of Trustees.

To honor her commitment to Carroll and tireless work to enroll some of the brightest students from around the globe, the New Hall residence building will be renamed the Shirley Hilger Hall this fall. A dedication ceremony is planned for Homecoming Weekend 2017 and all are invited to attend.
