North Hall

Completed in 1970 to provide additional space for the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary and offices for various Mennonite Brethren Church agencies, this building was originally known as the "Seminary-Conference Building." In addition to conference offices for the United States and Pacific District Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, the original building also included a seminary chapel and classroom.

In 1982 a new wing was added to the south end of the building, containing several classrooms, a kitchen and dining area, and a basement lounge area. At that time the building's name was changed to the "Campus Center." The rooms in this building were named at that time for states and provinces (British Columbia, California, Manitoba, Oklahoma, Ontario) where major funds were raised for the project.

In 2010, when the seminary became part of Fresno Pacific University, the name of this building was changed to North Hall, to reflect its geographic location on campus.
