About Us

The Baylor & Beyond LLC opened in 2015 in North Russell Hall. The fully renovated building provides students with a meaningful on-campus living experience.

Students are immersed in Baylor culture and traditions, while also thinking broadly about their other communities across campus, the city, the state, and in the world. In addition to connecting students’ educational experiences to their academic and creative strengths beyond the classroom, students are encouraged to develop cultural competency for worldwide leadership through service to others, language acquisition, mission and study-abroad opportunities, and undergraduate research both local and international.

A note from our Faculty in Residence


Welcome to North Russell Hall, Home of Baylor & Beyond Living-Learning Center. My family and I live in North Russell and in community with you as a faculty resource. Baylor & Beyond is about community and your place in the Baylor family. We are here with you for Baylor traditions like Homecoming and Bearathon and we will connect you with amazing Baylor folks (other students, faculty, staff, alumni) who are making a difference at home and abroad.

I am one of the many faculty and staff members at Baylor University who commit their time and effort to encourage and guide you. From your classes to your service and social time, we will help you to connect to the world and form relationships that will shape you. We are cheering for you every step of your Baylor journey. Come join us and celebrate Baylor & Beyond!
