Williams Hall

Chris Holloway

My name is Caleb Smith, and I serve as the Resident Director of Williams Hall. I’m from a small town called Decatur, Texas which is just outside of the DFW area. I started my undergraduate degree in 2010 and spent my first two years living on campus in the Williams residence hall. I can easily say that I would not be the man I am today without the friends I made and the experiences I had while I was there.

Williams Hall has five Resident Assistants who are here to help with anything that you need, as well as plan programs, foster community and build relationships. Events include the annual Hall Wars Dodgeball Tournament, concerts, service projects, and just hanging out at various locations around DFW. We want to have fun and see you succeed academically as well as provide a place you can grow mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Living in the residence halls was one of the most memorable times of my DBU student career. For me personally, it was an extremely influential time in my life as I built strong Christ-centered relationships and grew as a disciple of Jesus. I pray that you will seek the Lord and follow Him as He guides you in this next step of your life.

If you have any questions, or need anything, please give us a call.

Student Quotes

I like living in the residence halls because of the community like atmosphere. Any time of day, I can find another guy on the hall to hang out with or talk to. I enjoy the fact that at any moment I could take a few steps down the hall and just do life with another brother in Christ. It is also a great ministry opportunity, as we do have some non-Christians living in the residence halls.

I love the residence halls primarily for the fellowship they provide. Living within ten feet of 10-20 guys helps you become close with many people very quickly. There is always someone to spend time with and hang out in the residence halls. I think living in the residence halls helps me stay more involved on campus due to the community atmosphere.

Living in Williams has been a great experience. The atmosphere in the residence hall is phenomenal. No matter where you go, there is always someone there with a smiling face. I know that no matter what, I can go to the RAs and RD for help. I feel loved. It’s as if the residence hall is its own community. Living in the residence halls, you form relationships and friendships that will carry on through life. I will never forget this amazing experience.
