There are four classrooms, sized to accommodate students enrolled in Old and New Testament classes each year. A conference room offers an alternative space for smaller seminar courses. At the center of the second floor is a large library which houses a special collection of books on theology and Baptist life. The library will also serves as the home for UMHB's new Center for Baptist Studies. Offices for members of the religion faculty are clustered together on the second floor.

Only a handful of students were actively listening. A lot of people were studying and I felt bad for the speaker. I suggest an actual retreat In place of Alternative Chapel. There are a lot of students really need to unplug and go into a “spiritual spa”. I talked to the speaker about this And he seems dubious about it. I studied in a convent school for 10 years and I studied in a convent school for 10 years and retreats really do help specially in team building. There are those who would rather stick to this platform because they would rather study during the talk which is really counterintuitive.

I attended alternative chapel conducted by Ms. Beamon. I must admit before hand I was not looking forward to spending a beautiful Saturday in chapel. I went into the experience with a negative attitude as my mind was occupied with what I had to study, projects due, exams coming up, work, and all while raising a family. I was not excited about the idea of wasting a Saturday that I could be juggling any one of these tasks. I could not have been proven more wrong. Ms. Beamon 's chapel was so encouraging, enlightening, and motivational that I was at the edge of my seat the entire time. I left the chapel so spiritually and emotionally uplifted that I am revived and ready to tackle these hectic last few weeks of the semester with a newfound confidence and purpose.
