Nearly two years after ground was broken on the new Texas A&M Hillel Foundation facility, the nearly 18,000-square-foot, two-story building near the southeast corner of campus will officially open this weekend.

The public is invited to attend a dedication ceremony for the Texas A&M A.I. and Manet Schepps Hillel Building and Abe and Annie Seibel Center for Jewish Campus Life at 12 p.m. Sunday. The building is located at 800 George Bush Drive.

    I took a good look at the building Saturday and I have to say I found it to be a rather ugly building. It is not attractive or visually interesting. The building does not fit in with the surroundings. It does not fit in with the St Thomas church / school, the Mormon church ,or the neighborhood. They removed some beautiful trees to build a most ugly structure. I would imagine that the inside looks better than the outside simply because when inside you do not have to look at it.

    Very nice building especially compared to what they had just a few years ago.

    Interesting that they have the A&M logo on that building. I wasn't aware that the Hillel Foundation was officially associated with A&M. Also make me wonder who owns the land it sits on. A&M or Hillel? I'd like to know more about the relationship between these two organizations and if there are any other similar university/religious groups. I'd always thought that the all-faiths chapel was as the closest tie A&M had to religion.
