Laurens Hall, designed by Charles Coker Wilson, was built in 1907. It was named in honor of Presbyterians of Laurens County who contributed $7,000 toward its construction. From 1907 to 1954, this brick dormitory housed 22-24 students. A renovation in 1954 increased its capacity to 36. Laurens served as a men’s dormitory until 1977, and now houses women students.
