Through a surprising and totally coincidental pair of massive last minute donations, the dorm was fully funded through alumni Ron Jefferson ‘78 and Scott Davis ’62 earlier this month. A careful and thought out naming process ensued this week, and in conclusion the naming will serve to honor both generous donors through a joint-naming of the residence hall.
It has been a long awaited announcement, but Transylvania University administration has officially released the name for the school’s newest dormitory for on-campus living:
The departure from the recently demolished men’s dorms along with forward developments with 3 new dorms, a new plaza, and renovations in both Haupt Humanities and the Library serve to propel Transylvania forward with much excitement. With the finishing touches underway on Jefferson-Davis Hall, a new face is emerging for the school, a “New Transy” that shows much promise for a continued legacy of academic success and most of all a greater attention to modern aesthetics and progressive attitudes.
Now, the dorm’s name isn’t the only fresh and hip installment at Transy. Let’s take a look inside!
Consisting of suite style, 2 rooms per bath living, Jefferson-Davis Hall boasts Tempur-Pedic mattresses, vinyl wood flooring, and plenty of room to keep your countless guns and anti gay marriage picketing signs.
Interior designers splurged, sparing no cost for the coolest, most tolerant and unprejudiced decor they could find! Check it out:
It’s safe to say that Jefferson-Davis Hall is the first of many changes that will soon take Transylvania to new heights, school officials are confident that the dorm’s name and furniture will hold up as a sensitive and politically correct choice for at least another 50 years.
