Built in 1968, refurbished in 2006

Marguerite Chiles started as a student at Furman in 1946 and retired from the Vice President for Student Affairs in 1980. During her time at Furman, she lived in the residence halls at the Women's College, was responsible for planning all student activities outside the classroom, advised student organizations and worked on the traditional campus events with the students. As she moved up the administrative ladder to serve as dean of women, assistant vice president for student affairs and then vice president, Miss Chiles made a commitment to remain close to students and did just that! She is honored for her commitment to the students and unwavering concern for the campus community.
