Steps leading down to Galileo Hall are in the foreground.

Galileo Hall is a lecture-demonstration hall which divides to accommodate 308 in the center section and 163 on each of two sides, or it opens up for an audience of 634. The three auditoriums are named Pryne, McAlister, and Edwards. It was named for the Galileo Society, an organization of residents of the area who take an active interest in the college, and was constructed in 1972 as part of Project Libra. The Case Foyer, which acts as an entrance to Galileo Hall, also serves as an informal meeting place for many college functions.
