Opened in 1927, Toll Dorm was the first residence hall at the College. Eleanor Joy Toll was one of the early trustees and a prominent leader of education, music, and civic progress for women in Southern California. One of Toll Dorm’s features is Star Court, an inner courtyard with a star-shaped fountain. The landscaping, designed by Kaufmann, is a transition from public space of the open quad to private space of the dorm. The hedges outside Toll mark the division of public and private space, while the inner courtyard replicates the public gardens of Scripps on a more personal level.
