FACILITIES & GROUNDS

CAMPUS GROUNDS:
Situated on more than 40 acres, the campus of FBCI gives students an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Maine.

The “Fellowship Five-hundred” allows students to walk the front portion of the campus early in the morning, between classes, after meals, and in the evening. Students can often be found sitting under the large maple trees enjoying a snack or studying.

A large field across the road from the main campus is large enough to accommodate a full-size football or soccer field and is complete with a little league sized baseball field. Students can enjoy games of flag football, wiffle ball, baseball, softball, or soccer, along with many other activities. The campus also has a tennis court located behind the Chancellor’s Home.

CAMPUS FACILITIES:
The main buildings of the campus consist of the Institute Building, the Chapel, the Faith Auditorium, and the Tracy Dormitory Building. These buildings are all interconnected making travel within the buildings conveniently possible during inclement weather.

The Higgins Classical Institute Building, named after the original inhabitant of the campus, is the oldest building on campus, constructed in 1901. It has the charm of a historic building, bright and airy with large windows, high tin ceilings, and open spaces, but has been modernized to appeal to students and visitors alike. The Institute is the hub of the academic experience for students, encompassing the classrooms, library, student lounge, bookstore, music room, game room, along with staff and faculty offices.

The Elva P. Valerius Chapel is a beautiful, modern sanctuary with the capacity to accommodate 200 people. Chapel services take place regularly (see Section 4: Chapel Services for more information) and are shared via Livestream through Facebook and Youtube (visit www.faithbci.org for more information). Students have access to the Chapel for times of prayer and worship individually and collectively (see the Student Handbook for more details).

The Faith Auditorium is a multi-purpose space used most often for physical activities like volleyball, basketball, and indoor soccer, but can easily be converted into a lovely space for banquets and activities held by FBCI during the semesters. The Auditorium has a cardio and heavy weight area for those interested in a greater level of physical fitness.

The Tracy Hall, our main dormitory building is a student’s home away from home. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors are where students reside. Each floor has a communal lounge area equipped with refrigerator, washers, dryers, satellite television, comfortable furnishings, and more. Students are able to prepare their own cuisine while studying or watching television, all while completing a load of laundry.

The lower level of Tracy Hall is home to the Dining Hall as well as Hooper’s Corner Café, known to all as the FBCI Snack Bar. A favorite social place for students, visitors, staff, and faculty, the snack bar offers a menu of burgers, fries, sandwiches, and specialty items at reasonable prices.
