Levern Hamlin Allen Dedication
Western Carolina University is honored to name its newest addition to campus in recognition of Levern Hamlin Allen. This new residence hall, which officially opened its doors to residents on August 16th, 2019, houses a community of 600 diverse students pursuing their dreams, and it will bear the name of an ambitious alumna who helped open the door for the opportunities they enjoy today. Allen completed a post-secondary education program at WCU in the summer of 1957. She was the first African-American student at what was then Western Carolina College, and she later served on the WCU Board of Trustees.
