Patrick Henry College dedicated the beautiful new Barbara Hodel Student Life Center on October 10, 2009. This 106,000 square-foot crown jewel of student life, which features expansive recreational and dining facilities, classrooms, a bookstore, music studios, and offices, has become a delightful hub of campus activity.
Located at the terminus of a pedestrian mall, the building matches the federal style appropriate to other buildings throughout the college campus. Designed as a hub for student campus activity – this facility is not merely an athletics center, although it boasts a regulation size, 3000-seat gymnasium. It also includes an elaborate dining hall, common areas for student gatherings and study sessions, fitness center, classrooms, faculty offices and music practice rooms. With modern amenities and design, this facility is not only designed for the current needs of the college, but to be a solid fixture on the campus for many years to come.
