USA Dedicates Stokes Hall in Honor of Alumni Couple;
Residence Hall Introduces New Concept in Campus Life

University faculty, staff, students and trustees join members of the Stokes family as they prepare to cut a ribbon dedicating Stokes Hall. Stokes Hall is named in honor of USA alumni Dr. Steven H. Stokes and his wife, Angelia, in recognition of their contributions to the University. The four-story, 330-bed residence hall introduces a new concept in campus life at USA. Built in response to increasing demand for campus housing, Stokes Hall features classroom space and small-group study areas. It also includes a “living-learning community,” where classes are conducted and a faculty member lives in the residence hall, fostering a sense of connection. Last fall, USA reported a historic number of students living on campus, with approximately 3,100 residing at the University. Dr. Stokes received his medical degree from the University in 1980 and is a longtime member and former chair of USA’s Board of Trustees. Angelia completed her business degree in 1979 at USA. From the left are Stokes Hall Faculty in Residence Dr. Justin St. Clair, assistant professor of English; Stokes Hall resident Ashley Johnson of Valley, Ala., a graduate student in the College of Education; the Stokes' sons Steven and Jonathan Stokes; Jonathan's wife, Taylor-Lee Stokes; Vice President for Student Affairs Dr. John Smith; President Gordon Moulton; Angelia and Steven Stokes; and James A. Yance, USA Board of Trustees Chair Pro Tempore.
