Baylor University Hurd Welcome Center

The Mark and Paula Hurd Welcome Center at Baylor University, spanning 130,000 square feet, stands as a symbol of Baylor’s rich history and forward-looking vision. The center, boasting an immersive, interactive atmosphere, serves as the front door to the university, welcoming approximately 60,000 annual visitors, including prospective students, alumni, and guests.

Cherry Coatings provided its architectural coating services throughout the academic building, including Carlton Hall, a 19,000 square-foot 70-foot-tall space. In addition to this, our teams completed wallcovering installation, acoustic finishes in the Fudge Family Auditorium, and steel finishes in the light towers.

A testament to Baylor’s commitment to innovation, the Welcome Center stands as a place where the entire Baylor Family, from prospective students to alumni, can gather, learn, and celebrate.
