Built in 1961, refurbished in 2008

David Ramsay was a Baptist minister and pastor of Citadel Square Baptist Church in Charleston who also served on Furman's Board of Trustees in the early years of the twentieth century. In 1912 he was named president of the Female College, which had separated four years earlier from Furman's control. Two years later he was responsible for changing the institution's name to the Greenville Woman's College. As president he brought the college to the brink of accreditation, increasing the quality and quantity of its faculty, students, and curriculum; he built a Fine Arts Center, gymnasium, and dormitory; he expanded the library, and he greatly liberalized regulations. He resigned in 1929.
