Bostwick Residence Hall, an original Reynolda Campus building, is named for Jabez Abel Bostwick, a New York City benefactor known as the father of the Wake Forest endowment. A business partner of the Rockefellers, Bostwick was the Treasurer of the Standard Oil Trust and CEO of two major railroads in New England, which are represented on the crest by the locomotive. The corridor-style co-ed residence hall houses first-year students.
