DBU Life

Williams Hall

Chris Holloway

My name is Jordan Patterson, and I serve as the Resident Director of Williams Hall. My family and I have resided in the DFW area my whole life, and my grandparents still live right across the bridge from Dallas Baptist University. During my time as a student and a Resident Assistant at DBU, I have been blessed to see many young men mature and grow in their walk with the Lord. God has never ceased to amaze me as I continually witness Him at work in the lives of the men in Williams Hall.

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 Williams Hall vs. Lange Hall Football games, concerts, service projects, and just hanging out at various locations around the metroplex. We want to have fun while providing a place you can grow mentally, physically, and spiritually.

Living in the residence halls is one of the most memorable times of a DBU student's career. For myself, it was a very 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.

 

Be Blessed,
Jordan Patterson

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.
