Campus Center(Abilene, Texas – June 20, 2022) – McMurry University is breaking ground and beginning construction on the reimagined Student Center at 11am on Tuesday, June 21, 2022.

“This project will be the single largest project in school history,” University President, Dr. Sandra S. Harper said. “We could not be more thankful for the leadership of our board of trustees along with our alumni, donors, and friends who have made this possible.”

The Student Center modernization is a $25 million project that will expand the facility from just over 39,000 to more than 58,000 square feet. The new campus center will include a fitness and wellness center, student success center, chapel, a spirit store, enhanced event spaces and more.

“This project, along with record fundraising results and a substantial first year class, clearly demonstrates the momentum McMurry is gaining in the higher education landscape,” Vice President for Institutional Advancement, Michael V. Hutchison said.

For the Fall 2021 semester, McMurry reported a 4.8% enrollment increase: the largest freshman class in nine years. McMurry is also planning for its Centennial, a year-long celebration of both the University’s past and an excitement for its future.
