The principal building of the campus is Jewett Hall, the third of this name. The first Jewett Hall, built in 1840, was a four-story Greek revival building named after Dr. Milo P. Jewett, first president of the college. It was destroyed by fire in 1888. The rebuilding of Jewett Hall was begun that same year. In 1947 the dome was hit by a lightning strike and fire consumed the building. Rebuilding efforts began almost immediately, as funds were raised by the sale of bricks from the rubble.
Other notable buildings on campus include A. Howard Bean Hall, a former Carnegie library which now houses the Alabama Women's Hall of Fame as well as classrooms, Alumnae Auditorium, and the Women's Missionary Union residence hall.
Judson College students participate in big sister/little sister activities. In the spring semester of their first year, freshman students will receive a big sister from the sophomore class. Throughout the second year, students will go through several secret tradition ceremonies. The big sister leads the little sister through these ceremonies and provides for them the materials and things they need to pass on the traditions to later classes.
Every April, Judson hold its J-Day. J-Day is a homecoming event, and alumnae come from all over the country to celebrate and hold reunions.
