BY 1928, PLANS WERE DRAWN FOR CONSTRUCTION OF A STUDENT CENTER TO MEET THE NEEDS OF A GROWING CHURCH CONGREGATION AND STUDENT POPULATION AT WEST TEXAS NORMAL COLLEGE. OPENED THE NEXT YEAR ADJACENT TO THE CHURCH’S CHAPEL, THE LITTLE HOUSE OF FELLOWSHIP BECAME A SOCIAL AND RELIGIOUS CENTER FOR STUDENTS.
