Burgess Hall is a four-story residence hall named for Doyle. E. Burgess, former member of the Board of Directors and a president of the Evangel Council. Burgess Hall is an all-woman hall with capacity for 288 students. Construction was completed in 1978 and renovations were completed in 2007.
One of Burgess’s many traditions includes the annual Burgess House Party. Each year brings a new theme, new decorations and all kinds of games and activities to Burgess Hall, and it’s often one of the favorite events of EU students each year.
Logan James is the residence director of Burgess Hall.
A Branson native, Logan graduated from Missouri State University and received her master’s from Assemblies of God Theological Seminary. She decided to become an RD because of her love for college students and the opportunity to walk with them through this season of their lives.
“My favorite thing is seeing students grow throughout their time at Evangel,” she says. “I always love meeting the new freshmen, and I look forward to all of the fun, memory-making moments that happen in the hall.”
Logan and her husband, Luke, have been married for three years and are expecting their first child in December.
In her free time, Logan enjoys camping and hiking outdoors, watching football, cooking and trying new foods. She also admits that she enjoys trying “crazy” things, which has included going skydiving and running a marathon.
