A building does not create the character of a place, but it can certainly enhance it. With Cardinal Farrell Hall, the University of Dallas will become to those looking in what it already is to those looking out: a cohesive whole. When visitors — whether donors or prospective students — arrive on campus, they will no longer see a grouping of buildings that give no clear indication of which the main building might be. Rather, they will be drawn into an obvious focal point, one that is the embodiment of the rigorous academics and tight-knit community for which UD stands.

Whereas once one might have been surprised by the astonishing educational results yielded by such an unassuming assortment of structures, Cardinal Farrell Hall will provide the immediate impression of inherent possibility. Because of a building, recognition will grow. The degrees of alumni will carry greater weight, because when they say, “the University of Dallas,” others will respond, “Oh, yes, what an amazing education,” as they picture the building where that education, in many ways, began.
