Bogle Hall Dedicated, April 9, 2010
With the gift of a new dormitory in Butler College, John (Jack) C. Bogle ’51 H05 has added his name to the campus vocabulary. Students now eat, sleep, study, and socialize in Bogle Hall, and some even conduct sustainability experiments on its green roof.
For Bogle, who came to Princeton in the fall of 1947 as a scholarship student, the gift is a tribute to the University that launched him on his career. It is also, he believes, a way to give other students the same chance he had, and perhaps inspire them to do the same for others.
Bogle Hall, located centrally in the new college, houses 20 undergraduate and four graduate students and has a roof planted with succulent sedum to decrease storm water runoff and improve heating and cooling efficiency. The lower floor is Butler Commons, the college’s social space.
“We are very grateful to Jack Bogle for both his many years of steadfast support of Princeton and for this gift of Bogle Hall, which is enhancing the residential life experience for students today, and will continue to do so for generations to come,” said President Shirley M. Tilghman.
Bogle, who graduated magna cum laude with a degree in economics, founded the Vanguard Mutual Fund Group, created the first index fund, and champions low-cost investing for millions of small investors. In 1999 he was named one of the investment industry’s four “Giants of the 20th Century” by Fortune magazine. In 2004 Time magazine called him one of the 100 most powerful and influential people in the world, and in 2008 the Princeton Alumni Weekly chose him as one of the 25 most influential Princetonians of all time.
Bogle has a long history of generosity to Princeton, from funding the Class of 1951 Directorship of the Pace Center to creating the Bogle Brothers Scholarship Fund, which has supported more than 125 undergraduates at Princeton. He served as class president from 1971 to 1976 and won the Alumni Council Award for Service to Princeton in 1976 and the Woodrow Wilson Award in 1999. He hopes having his name on Bogle Hall will inspire students to follow the example of a Princetonian who found ways to build a better financial world. “Princeton’s role in my life has been central to whatever I may have accomplished,” he said.
The dormitory was dedicated at a ceremony on April 9, 2010.

Bogle Hall is your standard Butler dorm, this quad is pretty spacious and clean. Occasional problems with drain flies but not bad if you keep the shower & bathroom clean. No roaches but have had an almost-alarming number of spiders (and I keep things very tidy). The biggest downside is that this roo ... See more
