Strasbourg Quad

These buildings, which house dormitories and student government offices, were built in four phases from 1960 to 1971. In 1973 the quad was named after the French city of Strasbourg, which was a refuge during the 1520s for persecuted Anabaptists.

The south wing of the quad was named in 1990 for Arthur and Lydia Krause of Reedley, California, and the north wing in 1994 for Marvin and Loree Schlichting, then of San Jose, California, in honor of both families' support for the university.
