rollins campus center
The centerpiece of Young Harris College’s master plan is the construction of the $41 million, 125,000-square-foot Rollins Campus Center. Named for its $22 million lead gift from the O. Wayne Rollins Foundation, the Rollins Center will become the signature facility at Young Harris College—the social and intellectual heart of campus. The three-and-a-half stories of this new glass, brick and stone building will create a new hub of bustling activity, uniting social and intellectual aspects of a thriving college campus, while optimizing the surrounding mountain views and maximizing outdoor space with numerous porches for inspiration and renewal. The Rollins Center will connect four distinct areas in a single, state-of-the-art structure: a 60,000-square-foot multi-purpose student center, an expanded dining hall boasting a wide variety of food stations, a 350-seat, versatile banquet facility and a 40,000-square-foot modern library—named for Young Harris’ most famous son, Zell Miller, and his remarkable wife, Shirley. The facility will be designed and constructed to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards and is expected to earn LEED certification.
