Atkins Hall, constructed in 1977, is named for the University’s founder and the first President of Slater Industrial Academy (now Winston-Salem State University). Born to former slaves in Haywood, Atkins received his early education and taught school. A graduate of St. Augustine’s, Raleigh, and on the faculty of Livingstone College, Atkins became principal of Depot Street School in Winston in 1890, where he led in the development of Columbian Heights, a model community surrounding the Slater School. Simon Green Atkins (1863-1934) devoted his life to improving African-American education in North Carolina. He also worked tirelessly to elevate the economic status and to improve the housing and health of his community. Atkins was a man of high principles who emphasized how important it is for youth to develop strong personal character and a willingness to work hard to promote the overall good of society. Atkins Hall is for freshmen women.
