This study space is located in close proximity with the traditional first-year residence halls and is designed to be a helpful space for studying, tutoring, community building, and more! The physical space contains collaborative study space, in addition to a computer lab that is available for students to use when the facility is open.

The Paul L. Foster Success Center (PLFSC), charged with advancing the mission of Baylor University, strives to provide the resources and environment that support engagement in the academic community as well as fulfillment of personal goals and aspirations.
