Hundreds of students, faculty, staff and alumni left their mark at Texas Wesleyan University today.

They took advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to leave their mark on the new Nick & Lou Martin University Center during a foundation signing event on Tuesday, Jan. 22.

Participants entered into the $20.25 million, 44,000-square-foot building and left their names and inspirational messages and notes on the center’s foundation, led in by Student Government Association President Alyssa Hutchinson.

“The Martin University Center is an astounding building that literally and figuratively will be the heart of our campus,” said Fredrick G. Slabach, president of Texas Wesleyan University. “It will create a hub of activity and connections and increase our student’s opportunities for success and prepare them for graduation.”

The event included a blessing of the building by University Chaplain Dr. Gladys Childs and participants could take advantage of a free hot chocolate and coffee bar. Construction of the new student center is scheduled to be complete this summer and ready to open in the fall of 2019.

Located between the Eunice and James L. West Library and Canafax Clock Tower, the Martin University Center will be approximately 44,000-square-feet and two stories tall. It will include a new student and family welcome center, food court, ballroom that can accommodate 300, bookstore and convenience store, spaces for student organizations and student life offices, lounge areas, meeting rooms and additional office space.

The builder is Byrne Construction and the architect is Bennett Benner Partners
