This is the central meeting place on the campus of Paul Quinn College. All special events, student functions, fairs, retreats, and faculty and staff meetings are held at this site, and it is one of the showplaces of the Paul Quinn College campus. The facility was named after Mr. Comer Cottrell, entrepreneur and owner of Pro-line Corp., who was very instrumental in the re-opening of the campus with his finances as well as his astute leadership abilities.
