A residence hall for first-year women and men, Baldwin-Jenkins
is considered by many to have the strongest community of any
hall on campus. From the very beginning of each year, the residents of
Baldwin-Jenkins develop special zeal for their building and a pride for
their new "home."
The hall is energized
by freshman enthusiasm and by very talented student leaders who are carefully chosen for this hall. The mentoring provided by the student leaders, all juniors and seniors, presents each new student with an environment that is both comfortable and
challenging -- not only during their initial transition to Whitworth, but
continually as the year progresses. Special hall programming is offered
throughout the year and is often focused on relationship-building and
other topics that are relevant to first-year students.
Baldwin-Jenkins, named for Estella E. Baldwin, registrar from 1935-70,
and Marion R. Jenkins, dean of women from 1931-63, was built in 1968.
