Continuing the Legacy

by Kim Williams

The buildings on the campus of Texas A&M University-Commerce by themselves are just structures. While significant time, effort and financial contributions have gone into making them beautiful from the outside, it is what happens inside the structures that make the university great.

At a glance the commitment, investment and importance that the university community and alumni place in creating an atmosphere specifically geared to students’ success can be seen throughout the campus. Making a positive impact on student lives, however, is what continues the proud legacy that started with Professor Mayo’s efforts in 1889.

This spring issue of Pride provides a tour of some of the campus’ main buildings and university programs in an effort to relate the exciting advancements happening on campus. Each page reveals how the buildings not only provide a learning space for students, but how they directly impact student lives.

The financial support from donors like you complements the efforts of our faculty and staff in providing a quality education for all A&M-Commerce students.

At A&M-Commerce, the buildings may create the first impression, but it is the legacy of caring and personal involvement in the lives of students that lasts forever.
