History of the Student Union

‌The Lib Jackson Student Union (formerly the Lib Jackson Student Center) was named for Elizabeth "Lib" Benson Jackson on October 16, 2004, to commemorate a family gift made in her honor to Coastal's 50th Anniversary Initiatives Campaign. Mrs. Jackson was born and raised in Salisbury, North Carolina, the oldest of four children. She married A.E. Jackson Jr., and the couple moved to Myrtle Beach in 1939. The Jacksons were among Myrtle Beach's earliest residents.

The picture of Lib Jackson is located in the rotunda area of the student union.
