Hitzeman Hall, Hurd Hall, and Myers Hall were constructed in 1961 as buildings G, H, and I. The letters were rearranged to create the name HIG, which is what the community is referred to as today.
The buildings were later dedicated in 1990 and named after Herbert F. Hitzeman, Frank E. Hurd, and Chester Myers to create Hitzeman, Hurd, and Myers Residential College. Today, our residential college is affectionately known as HIG.
Colors: Orange and Russet Brown
- HIGriddle: Once a month the community gets together in community common spaces to cook on a griddle. The great thing about HIGriddle is that the food is always different, one month it will be grilled cheeses and the next it will be pancakes.
- Alphabet Bowl: Alphabet Bowl is an annual flag football game between Hitzeman, Hurd, and Myers Residential College and Shanedling, Dauten, and Rutledge Residential College. This annual event takes place on the Swamp and involves members from both communities.
- HIGapalooza: This celebration marks the end of the year while celebrating all of the accomplishments of the community. Taking place on the lawn and patio outside of the community, this fun event involves everything from a BBQ to lawn games and more.
