Longwood University Stubbs Hall Signage + Graphics
Client: Longwood University
Location: Farmville, Virginia
Scope: Exhibit Design, Graphics, ADA/Code Signage
Architect: VMDO Architects
Home to ten of Longwood’s sororities, Stubbs Hall includes graphics that promote the individual and collective identities of each sorority. Graphics remind sisters of their place within a rich campus history and broad network of national connections.
At one end of the meeting room a graphic exhibit connects the history of sorority life at Longwood with the reach of all ten sororities across the country.
Built in 1966 and renovated in 2014, Stubbs Hall serves as one of two all-female communities at Longwood University. Ten national sororities, including four alpha chapters originally founded at Longwood, are located in Stubbs.
The renovation included re-design of the chapter rooms available to each of Longwood’s ten sororities. Marked from the corridor with an etched glass crest, the chapter rooms share common design features and amenities, but also express their own independent identities. A new meeting room creates a space for sororities to gather for larger chapter and recruiting meetings.
