Collins Residence Hall

Collins Residence Hall, first occupied in 1985, is named for William Avery Collins (’61), a major University benefactor. While a student, Mr. Collins was pledge master at Delta Sigma Pi fraternity, in which his brothers included All-American and future NFL Pro Bowl quarterback Norm Snead (’62). Collins also 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. To learn more about this hall, visit rlh.wfu.edu/collins.

Famous Alumni: Tim Duncan (’97), multiple NBA All-Star and Olympic medalist, and Bill Haas (’04), winner of the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup in 2011, are on the Collins all-time roster.
