Dear South Russell residents,

We could not be more excited to welcome you to our community at Baylor University. Our hope and prayer for each of you is that you find South Russell (also known as “SoRo”) to be a place where you can be yourself, learn from others, and develop deep, life-long friendships with others who live in the South Russell community. In short, we want this to be a place you proudly call home.

There will be plenty of opportunities to get involved in your floor community – weekly hall events, athletics watch parties, board game names, and movie nights – and plenty of opportunities to help lead and shape the entire SoRo community through involvement in Russell Council “RoCo” (Hall Leadership Team) which exists to plan all-hall programs and develop various community activities throughout the year.

South Russell re-opened in the Fall of 2014 after being completely refurbished. Our theme for 2015-2016 comes from Hebrews 10:24-25 focusing on the ways in which we can live life together and encourage one another: Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. We fully believe as we meet together and encourage one another to acts of love and good works, all of us will be changed. We cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store for our community during your time here in South Russell and at Baylor.

Please know that we are here to assist you in any way possible. We want your living experience to be the best it can possibly be and we are dedicated to making that happen for you, as well as the rest of the South Russell community.

Welcome to the South Russell family!

See you soon,
The Staff of South Russell
