The (old) President’s House is a one-story house with a side-gabled wing and a flat roof wing. The gabled wing features triple 6/6 double hung windows with half-round transoms. The flat roof wing has two 6/6 double hung wing winows. The entrance pavilion projects slightly from the body of the house and is sheltered by a front-gabled roof with broad eaves. The house is clad in stucco and has a decorative wreath and rope molding over the front door.

The Mediterranean style house dates from the 1930s and is one of the older buildings on the campus. Its style and materials are consistent with the other campus buildings.
