Bayless Plaza

Status: Project Complete

Bayless PlazaDedicated in September 2006, the 7,500-square-foot Bayless Plaza provides a spectacular permanent home for TU’s historic Kendall Bell, which has been rung by students completing their last final exam for nearly 75 years.

In addition to the centerpiece bell cupola encircled by cast-stone columns, the plaza features brick walkways and benches, making it a gathering place in the heart of campus. The plaza is named in honor of Bernice Bayless (BS ’49) and her late husband, Robert Bayless (BA ’49), whose generous gift funded this landmark.
