While Wayland provides quality education for those seeking a degree in various fields, the university also offers an array of entertainment and other amenities for the community and area residents to enjoy. Following are just a few of the options:


Museum of the Llano Estacado:

Built in 1976 during the nation's sesquicentennial, the museum features exhibits about the region's history as well as new exhibits about hometown heroes. Admission is free and school groups are welcome to visit the museum. Besides the historical displays, the museum offers a meeting space for use by area groups by reservation.


Abraham Family Art Gallery:

Located in the lower level of the Mabee Learning Resources Center, the Abraham Art Gallery is home to a series of art exhibits from all media, including local and regional artists, Wayland student and alumni artists and statewide exhibits, such as the Texas Watercolor Society and the Plains Art Association annual shows. Admission to the gallery is free and is open to the public.

* Wayland University Bookstore:

Housed in the McClung University Center, the bookstore is not only a source for textbooks and supplies for academic purposes on campus; it also is home to a wide array of Christian books, Bibles, music and WBU apparel. In addition, the store offers a variety of gifts, collectibles and home decor options and features a wedding and baby registry as well.

* Wayland Athletics:

Beginning with the fall sports of football, swimming, wrestling, volleyball and soccer and continuing through the late spring with baseball and track and field, Wayland fields a number of competitive athletic teams. Competing in the Sooner Athletic Conference with many rivals in Oklahoma, the university offers exciting sports match ups on the campus open to area residents for their enjoyment. Pioneer Soccer competes at Hilliard Field when at home, and Hutcherson Center is home court to Pioneer Volleyball, Pioneer Basketball and Flying Queens Basketball during the fall and winter. Pioneer Baseball calls the stately Wilder Field home, and the facility is also home to several high school playoff games, as are many of Wayland's venues.
