About the building

The Rollins Campus Center was awarded LEED Gold certification by the Green Building Certification Institute.

This makes it the first building on the YHC campus to achieve gold certified status and the fifth LEED-certified facility on the YHC campus.

The campus center features several sustainable systems including a geothermal exchange system of 180 wells that use the earth’s naturally constant temperature to heat and cool the building.

Regional materials include careful use of rustic stone and wood timbers—harvested, extracted or manufactured within 500 miles of the College.

The center optimizes the surrounding mountain views and maximizes outdoor space with numerous expansive porches that create a relaxing space for students to socialize and study.

Rollins Family

About the Rollins family

The remarkable O. Wayne Rollins Foundation helped make the center possible through a $22 million lead gift for the construction of the facility. O. Wayne and Grace Rollins are longtime supporters of YHC.

The impact the Rollins family has had on the campus is evident in numerous facilities, including the O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium, Rollins Residence Hall, Grace Rollins Dining Hall and Rollins Wall.

Wayne and Grace’s granddaughter, Pam, has followed in their footsteps during her 20-year tenure as a YHC trustee. In 2011, she announced a $22 million lead gift from the O. Wayne Rollins Foundation for the construction of the Rollins Campus Center.

As chair of the College’s Investing in the Future Capital Campaign, her efforts have expanded even further to not only raise the remaining funds for the facility but also support many other important initiatives that will help meet the growing needs of the expanding campus.
