Most Beautiful Christian College and University Campuses in the World
Houston Baptist University
The beauty of Houston Baptist University s 100 acre campus is largely down to its impressive architecture. The Baptist General Convention of Texas affiliated university s first president, William H. Hinton, oversaw the considerable growth of the institution s faculty, student body and building developments during his 25 years in charge. What s more, the striking Hinton Center with its distinctive, shiny dome is named after him. Another of the school s highlights is its Belin Chapel, which was formally opened in 2007 and is adorned with columns and a huge cross to a design by the Houston and Vietnam based Studio RED Architects. Inside, the chapel is even more breathtaking thanks to its ethereal reflector ring, painted metal panels and intricate stained glass. Houston Baptist University was established in 1960 and is now home to just over 2,500 students in undergraduate and postgraduate programs.
