Abstract: The Catherine Burrow Refectory was originally the Hugh M. Neely Hall, built in 1928. The Refectory is lovingly referred to as the Rat and has a small rat statue outside because of the nickname. The rat has multiple dining areas and was most recently renovated in 2012. The building has many engaged columns. There are pointed arches and an ogee arch. The Rat features a large skylight, which is the only skylight on campus. It provides natural light in the most interior portions of the Rat which would otherwise not be lit.
