Week 22: Holthusen Hall / Varsity Theatre
Holthusen Hall features the renovated 1,154-seat Varsity Theatre, serving as lecture hall, concert venue and cinema at Marquette University. The four-story structure is also home to the Career Services Center, the Counseling Center, the Graduate School, Research and Sponsored Programs, and the Office of International Education.
Built in 1937, Holthusen Hall was originally known as the Varsity Building. Marquette University bought the building in 1967 and renamed it in 1985 to honor Henry Holthusen, founder of the Milwaukee Manufacturing Corporation, and his wife Violet.
