Schroon Lake, New York
Word of Life Bible Institute

The Bollback Student Life Center is located in the Adirondack Park along Schroon Lake. It is situated to take advantage of the lake views and natural wooded setting. This 37,500 square foot building will serve as the social center of the campus and includes a bookstore, café, snack bar, recreation space, study lounges, seminar rooms, mailroom, dining hall, kitchen, and culinary offices. The dining hall and food service area will accommodate 600 students at a single sitting.

architecture+ prepared the Campus Master Plan for the Word of Life Bible Institute to develop their 190 acre academic/residential campus. The ten-year Master Plan includes the new Student Life Center, Welcome Center, Health and Fitness Center, and Residence Halls for an additional 500 students.

The Student Life Center design was completed in spring 2015. The Bollback Student Life Center is currently in construction. Raymond Davis, the Construction Manager for the project, prepared this video of the current construction progress.
