Loftin approves “Gateway” for new residence hall name

On Dec. 5, Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin approved the name “Gateway,” for the Virginia Avenue South housing project.

In October, the Residence Halls Association voted on five potential names for the housing project, with Gateway as their top recommendation.

RHA President Steven Chaffin passed this resolution on for approval to Director of Residential Life Frankie Minor, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Cathy Scroggs and the chancellor.

“I am very pleased that our name recommendation for the Virginia Avenue South housing project has been approved,” Chaffin said. “On behalf of the Residence Halls Association, I would like to give special thanks to our adviser Lucas Gorham, Director of Residential Life Frankie Minor, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Cathy Scroggs and Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin for being receptive to on-campus students. I look forward to welcoming the incoming class of 2019 and returning students to Gateway Hall.”
