Johnson Halls B: Schmidt, Wilson (JB)

Johnson B

Johnson Complex provides on-campus housing to students. It is divided into two buildings: four-story Botsford/Swinford and eight-story Schmidt/Wilson. Schmidt/Wilson housed students enrolled in the Honors College until 2009. It currently is the on-campus home for students participating in the university's Emerging Media Living-Learning Community. The residence halls feature Z-shaped rooms distinct from other housing options for students living on campus.

Namesake:
Earl A. Johnson, former dean of the Teachers College (on faculty from 1929-1966). Schmidt/Wilson halls are named for two former professors: Angie Wilson, associate professor of social science at Burris School from 1932 to 1954, and Fred J. Schmidt, professor and head of the industrial arts department from 1935 to 1958.

Year completed: 1969, renovated in 1998
