Charles Jenkins, Sr. Residence Hall


In 1982, the Charles Jenkins, Sr. Jenkins Residence Hall, another Nils Schweizer-designed building, was completed, and on October 29, 1982, the hall was dedicated with College President Robert Davis and the primary donor Charles Jenkins, Sr., Chairman of Publix, present. Charles Jenkins, also a Trustee, was the brother of George Jenkins and, like his brother, an Honorary Chancellor. Three months later, on January 23, 1983, the student lounge in the dormitory was dedicated as the Weems-Macbeth Lounge after Dr. Howard V. and Camilla Weems and Joseph O. and Verna Macbeth. Camilla Weems had been a member of the building committee for the Branscomb Memorial Auditorium, and her son-in-law Joseph Macbeth was a Trustee. Located on the corner of Frank Lloyd Wright Way and Duke Place, Jenkins Hall is the home of several fraternities as well as independent men.
