Groundbreaking for residence hall is first step toward new Freshman Village

Donors, alumni and friends of ACU kicked off the new school year Saturday by breaking ground on a new residence hall on the site of former McDonald Hall, set to be a home for freshmen in Fall 2021.

Standing near the construction site, April (Bullock ’89) Anthony of Dallas, Texas, board chair and one of the project’s lead donors, said she could picture her second-floor McDonald room where she lived as a freshman in the 1980s.

“It’s in the residence life and in the dorms that our experiences at ACU begin, and it’s in those places our life-long relationships are founded,” Anthony said. “And it’s still to this day that in that very room, the roommate of my freshman year is part of my life, as are so many others [I met] throughout my ACU years.”
