Watters Hall, formerly Damian Hall, was used as a seminary until 1972. At that time, Saint Mary’s purchased the building and converted it into office and classroom space, as well as a residence hall. In honor of Bishop Loras Watters, retired bishop of the Winona diocese, the building was renamed Watters Hall in 1987. Watters Hall houses 60 graduate students. The undergraduate Lasallian Honors Program, classrooms and faculty offices are also housed in Watters.
