Collins Residence Hall is named for William A. Collins Jr., the owner of a group of funeral homes and a major benefactor of student scholarship funds. Collins competed in track and field and played in the band. In 1994, he established a $2.1 million scholarship fund for students from his native Virginia. The dragon on the dorm logo is in honor of the Collins family crest, which features a dragon of its own. The corridor-style co-ed building houses first-year students. The basketball court, TV lounge and kitchens on most halls help make Collins Hall an enjoyable place to live.
