Dean Learning Center

Dallas Baptist University has been blessed with a beautiful campus. One of the features of University Hill is our buildings, many of which are modeled after traditional Colonial architecture. In the next couple weeks we are going to be highlighting a couple of our buildings on the DBU campus.

This week we are highlighting the Dr. William B. Dean Learning Center, our newest building on campus. It is located right across from the Pilgrim Chapel and right beside Horner Hall. Modeled after Harvard Hall, the Dean Learning Center provides the space and resources for several offices and campus organizations, as well as more classroom space for our students. 

The main floor and second floor house the Service-Learning Program, Department of Online Education, College of Professional Studies, Career Development Center, Student Government Association, Office of Student Life, and Office of Student Retention.

On the bottom floor of the Learning Center is a student life center, named The Sellar, with a pool table, table hockey, and ping-pong tables, study areas, a kitchen area, and several flat screen TVs. This area provides a great space for late-night study sessions or just hanging out with friends.

Many students have already discovered this great addition to the DBU campus, and are enjoying the community and atmosphere that is being created here. From ping pong tournaments to discipleship and Bible study sessions, The Sellar is sure to be great hit among students for all kinds of events!

Perhaps the most interesting feature of the Dean Learning Center is the giant chessboard located just outside the building. The life-size pieces and large-scale board add a completely new dynamic to this traditional game of strategy. Having to view the game from such a different point of view demands a larger amount of focus and attention to detail, and the new twist on this classic game made playing the game a fun and interesting experience. It is certainly something I would recommend trying out, even if you are not a big fan of chess!

The DBU campus is constantly growing and expanding to make room for our growing number of students and the changing needs of the university, and everyone is so excited about this addition to our ever-growing campus. This is definitely an exciting time to be a student at Dallas Baptist University!
