Terrell Hall’s $13.3 million renovation began in 2018 and will now house the Communications department. Modern updates include advanced multimedia laboratories and engaged-learning classrooms featuring cutting-edge communications technology. Originally built in 1908, Terrell is one of the university’s oldest structures, once serving as a dormitory. Original features were preserved—like higher ceilings, wider hallways, original flooring, and picturesque windows that were once covered up.
