The BSC is Already Making Headlines

Our students, alumni, faculty, and staff aren’t the only ones taking notice of the changes on the ETBU campus.

It seems everyone is.

Recently, ETBU’s Bennett Student Commons (BSC) was featured on KTBS in Shreveport. Reporter Carolyn Cerda and a camera crew were on campus to highlight one of the three projects that have been completed, or are still under construction – those three being the Ornelas Student Center, The BSC, and a brand new facility to be used by football that includes a weight room, study area, and visitors locker room.  All of these projects have been funded by the generous, and appreciated gifts from donors.

The BSC renovations have nearly doubled its capacity, with it’s cafeteria now holding 500 people and is a great reflection of the growth in student population.

We are very excited about the renovations and new construction on campus!.  The BSC is going to be a phenomenal facility, and in the words of Public Relations Director, Mike Midkiff, “It will not look like any way, form or fashion what they (students) saw when they left here in the spring.”

Proof positive that it is a great time to be at East Texas Baptist University.

So a massive THANK YOU! to the donors who have funded these projects!  Way to go!  GO BLUE!!
