Comprised of two residential buildings and a dining commons, the East Village Residential Community will join the rich heritage of Baylor University when the doors open for students, faculty, and staff in Fall 2013.
Hallie Earle Hall is named for the 1901 Baylor graduate who went on to become the first female graduate of Baylor Medical School in Dallas and then the first licensed female physician in McLennan County. Earle challenged gender roles of early 20th-century America, but her work was of such quality that a copy of her master's thesis was placed in the cornerstone of Carroll Science in 1902, and in 1996, the Texas Historical Commission placed a marker on her grave. Earle Hall is home to the Science & Health Living-Learning Center.
Teal Residential College
The Gordon Teal Residential College is named for the 1927 Baylor graduate who played a major part in developing the first silicon transistor while working at Texas Instruments. Teal later became the first director of the National Bureau of Standards Institute for Materials Research in Washington, D.C. He also served as a Baylor trustee from 1970-79, and his papers reside in Baylor's Texas Collection. The Teal Residential College is home to the Residential College for Engineering and Computer Science.
