LCU Unveils New Campus Building For An Increase In Student Body
Lubbock Christian University has announced they are near completion of one of their newest buildings that will help increase their future student body. Gullo Hall is the newest residence hall on LCU's campus that is set to be completed by Fall 2023 and is set to house students in Spring 2024.
Gullo Hall is just one of many newest additions to the LCU campus to help increase the quality of student's time at the University. This newest on-campus housing was named after Tony and Dolly Gullo who have been advocates for the student experience and made donations in transforming the campus. Dolly Gullo states that the reason they chose to donate to this project was to help the school grow and to help students build lifelong friendships that will be formed in campus life.
The Lubbock-based Madera Residential company has taken on the task to help bring Gullo Hall to the campus. The Randolph Foundation for Higher Education, which has helped fund other campus projects, chose to fund Gullo Hall along with other donors likes the Gullo's and Cardwell family. The Cardwell family has been investing directly into the University since 1974 when Jack Cardwell became part of the Board of Trustees, with Jim Cardwell sitting on the Board currently.
This new on-campus living facility will be over 64,000 square feet and will include 171 beds for students living on campus along with a community living area for social interactions. Gullo Hall joins Johnson Hall, Katie Rogers Hall, the Mabee Living Center, and on campus apartments.
