Farkas Hall

History

Interior of Farkas Hall

Farkas Hall opened in the fall of 2007 as "The New College Theatre" on the site of the former Hasty Pudding Club Building. In 2011, the facility was named in honor of Robin L. Farkas ’54, M.B.A. ’61, through a gift from his son, Andrew L. Farkas, AB 1982. In 2015, Farkas Hall became the home of the newly-launched Theater, Dance & Media concentration (TDM). In addition to work presented by TDM, Farkas Hall hosts the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, independent student productions and dozens of special events each year.
