Mogen Hall was originally constructed as the "University Apartments" and opened its doors in 2000. Renamed for one of Cal Lutheran's greatest supporters, Mary Mogen, the hall received its new name in 2003. Mrs. Mogen believed strongly in the value of higher education in the Lutheran Church and was extremely dedicated to Cal Lutheran and its mission. With 30 suites set up for apartment-style living, students living in Mogen Hall are of mostly junior or senior standing. Mogen Hall is also home to the Florin Lounge, named for Walter Florin in 2000 as a sign of gratitude for his support of CLU.
