Save the date: Rosedale groundbreaking Nov. 15
Join President Frederick G. Slabach, trustees and government officials for the Rosedale Renaissance groundbreaking at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at the site next to the School of Business.
Construction on East Rosedale has been ongoing since last spring, but the ceremonial groundbreaking will mark the beginning of new construction for the campus entryway, clock tower and the United Methodist Church Central Texas Conference Service Center, which will be home to the bishop’s offices.

The Rosedale Renaissance Project is a $6.5 million multifaceted project designed to leverage more than $32 million in private and public funding for the benefit of Southeast Fort Worth and Texas Wesleyan University.
There are four key pieces to the Rosedale Renaissance development:
- A "front door" to the university, including the new entryway and clock tower ($1.3 million)
- The Methodist conference center and bishop's office ($3 million)
- Business incubator center in the renovated Polytechnic Firehouse ($400,000)
- Improvements to the streets adjacent to campus ($1.8 million)
The project also includes the addition of a reflecting pool in the entryway, promenade-style sidewalks with seat walls and facilities that provide additional opportunities for students to learn.
Mark your calendars
Mayor Betsy Price and other local dignitaries are scheduled to be on hand for the ceremony. Join these officials, plus trustees and the Texas Wesleyan community, for this historic occasion.
