Publix Charities Commons and Greek Quad


On February 12, 1999, the Publix Charities Commons and Greek Quad was dedicated. The complex, which today houses most students in Florida Southern's Greek Life organizations, replaced the East Campus, the series of 1940s-era buildings on the corner of Frank Lloyd Wright Way and Ingraham Avenue. Groundbreaking was held for the Publix Charities Commons and Greek Quad on April 16, 1997, and construction of the $8.9 million project, funded in part by alumni Dr. Barney Barnett (Class of 1965) and Dr. Carol Jenkins Barnett (Class of 1979), was completed by Marcobay Construction the following year in 1998. The structures, designed by architect Daniel Fowler of Lunz and Associates, are suite-style dormitories that house Greek Life organizations as well as their respective chapter rooms. Located in the center of the complex are the Judy and Joe P. Ruthven Beach Volleyball Courts, which were added in 2017 and are the home of Florida Southern's Beach Volleyball team.
