Community Spaces

The Honors Residential College includes both Memorial Hall and Alexander Hall.  Alexander Hall is home to the men, and Memorial Hall is home to the women.  Between the halls is the 1845 at Memorial, one of Baylor students' most beloved dining halls.  The HRC has a wide variety of community spaces that we hope the students come to know as their home.  Common spaces in Alexander and Memorial are open to both men and women of the HRC.

Memorial Chapel

The Memorial Chapel is the site of daily prayer, weekday mornings and evenings. Incorporating many modes and styles of worship, including Scripture reading, brief teachings, both traditional and contemporary worship, and prayer, services provide attendees with a chance to pause amidst the busyness of life and to spend time with God. While morning and evening prayer are open to the entire community, the HRC offers chapel credit to any resident who would like to enroll. For those interested in enrolling in HRC chapel, please contact Courtney_DePalma@baylor.edu.
