Thomas Branch provides a living space for students and it houses the beautiful Wilkins Atrium.
On the first floor are the offices of Financial Aid, Admissions and the Center for Personal and Career Development, which includes R-MC’s innovative EDGE program.
On the upper two floors of Thomas Branch, the Brock Residence Halls provide substance-free housing and 24-hour quiet study time for upperclassmen. Room selection for the Brock Residence Halls is a highly competitive process that requires applicants to craft an essay describing how that living space will positively affect their studies at R-MC. The Brock Residence Halls house students in the Wellness Environment for Living and Learning (W.E.L.L.) program.
Originally constructed in 1914, Thomas Branch was a gift to R-MC from John P. Branch. The building was renovated and reopened in 2004. Joan and Macon F. Brock Jr. '64 and the Birdsong Family of Suffolk, Virginia were key benefactors of the renovation project. The Atrium is named for Dr. and Mrs. Harold Wilkins of Downey, California.
