In addition to a wide range of Student Life services, the Barbara Hodel Center also offers additional classrooms, conference rooms, offices and dedicated academic facilities, in support of Patrick Henry College's ongoing academic development.
Academic facilities are open for students Monday-Sunday from 6:00am to 10:00pm.
The journalism lab features desks and seating, a raised presentation platform with built-in media projector, class and story meeting space, and ten Apple desktop computers, equipped with software for graphic design, photo editing, and sound/video editing.
This facility will be a soundproof recording studio and control room, complete with soundboards and assorted editing/mixing equipment, and the ability to record telephone interviews. A complementary television/video recording studio is also planned.
Music Practice & Teaching Studios:
The 12-room music practice complex for applied music features upright pianos, instrument stand equipment, professional lighting and soundproof walls. Four larger teaching studios supply similarly outfitted facilities for applied lessons, with ample room for student(s) and teacher(s).
A computer lab equipped for music study, this dedicated facility for music-related software and recording systems contains a wide range of materials for music theory, composition and history, as well as a specialized music library.
Featuring chorale risers, a grand piano and white-boarded wall, this large ensemble rehearsal room is ideal for choral and orchestral practices, as well as for class teaching. It is currently the home of the PHC Chorale.
