"Few may know the story behind the name E. Moore Hall. Elizabeth Moore was the principal of the Woodburn Female Seminary more than 150 years ago. She was known by many as a brave and courageous woman who valued education and was a consultant for WVU when it was first being built. These are the reasons why the hall was named after her, and her influence on the University is the reason why her spirit chose to stay."
