Du Pont Hall's utilitarian design was no match for the elegance of the other buildings on The Green. Shortly after completion, H. Rodney Sharp, UD benefactor, trustee and alumnus (and brother-in-law to P.S.), initiated a campaign among their relatives to raise funds to enhance the building's facade, and in 1961 a Georgian-style portico was added to maintain The Green's architectural style and to honor the building's namesake.
