Given in 1923 by the citizens of Lynchburg in remembrance of those local servicemen who died in World War I, Memorial Gymnasium contained faculty offices, an indoor track, a basketball court, locker rooms for men and women, and an indoor swimming pool.
In 1980 an addition was built at the rear of the original structure. Renamed the William S. and Katherine N. Hall Campus Center, it includes an extensive outdoor area for formal and informal receptions. The basketball court was converted into a ballroom, the indoor track became administrative offices, and the pool was covered and turned into offices and classrooms. The structure also houses security services and the college switchboard. A regular program of preventative maintenance keeps this building in first-class condition.
