BYU opens new Reflection Room, peaceful retreat for students

Several months of work and cooperation culminated in the opening of the Reflection Room in the Wilkinson Student Center on April 19, 2017. The new Reflection Room will serve as a beautiful and reverent space where students can come to quietly contemplate and experience peace.

The room has been renovated with new flooring and elegant furniture, as well as three unique paintings that portray the life and teachings of Jesus Christ in leading, serving and loving others. As a result, this also creates an enhanced setting for the Memorial Wall, which honors the sacrifice of BYU students who died preserving freedoms from World War I to more current conflicts.

The project came from a recommendation to university administration to improve the Wilkinson Center for students. BYUSA leaders Avery Harding and Addie Hulme, the Wilkinson Center Student Friendly Committee, BYU Army and Air Force ROTC representatives and BYUSA Student Veterans Club representatives developed the idea of enhancing the room previously known as Memorial Hall. This work included surveying students, collecting feedback from interested parties and consulting with campus facilities and design and art specialists.
