Walking through Hobbs Hall, you’ll see the names of many who have been a part of the Hobbs Hall legacy as it stands today. For generations to come, those names will continue to speak of the initial commitment of individuals who believed in furthering Mary Mendenhall Hobbs' vision. Now in a time of renovation, you have the opportunity to be a part of the legacy too, and show your commitment to sustaining the iconic dormitory and its special meaning on Guilford's campus. Please consider joining the legacy and choose to leave your name, or that of a loved one, in a place that captures the spirit of community and responsibility.
You can show your support of Hobbs' mission by participating in a naming opportunity, a chance to attach your name, or the name of a loved one, to Hobbs Hall's history in support of its future. By making a gift to the college in the form of a naming opportunity, you are creating a tangible legacy of your personal connection to the college, specifically Mary Hobbs Hall – a valuable gift indeed.
