Greenville-based architectural firm Craig Gaulden Davis was commissioned to design a 40,000 square foot suite-style dormitory along Converse College campus' east corridor. Craig Gaulden Davis provided full architectural and interior design services for the building, which maintains the aesthetic and scale of the historic campus.

The three-story brick dormitory with contemporary aluminum windows features 6-room suites to accommodate 120 students. With a classroom on the ground floor that will flex for use, the faculty and staff will benefit from added academic and meeting space.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Friday, September 23rd, 2017, dedicating the building to Betsy Fleming, Converse College’s ninth president.
