- The Corwin graduate houses on the Douglass Campus are built like cottages. This occurred because the bank refused to lend Douglass College founder, Mabel Smith Douglass, money to build campus housing. They didn't think a women's college would succeed. Finally, they agreed to the loan as long as the halls were built like single-family houses. The bank's reasoning was that if the women's college failed, they could sell the houses and not lose money.
- On certain occasions, whether it is during midterms or finals week, parents can send students care packages, which are sent to their campus mailing addresses.
