Garrett Hall originally replaced Carr's Hill as "The Commons" dining hall in 1909. Waiters would serve students during those days and if you were nice to them, you might even get extra portions. During the World War II era, the waiters were replaced by a student self-serve line. Eventually, Garrett Hall became an office space with lowered ceilings, a filled in foyer, and an annex for the university's first computer center. Today, after numerous renovations, Garrett Hall serves as the Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy.
