University expands Dallas location

The university celebrated the newly expanded Universities Center at its Dallas downtown location this spring. “A little over 20 years ago, Texas A&M University-Commerce—then East Texas State University—began to explore ways to bring higher education to downtown,” said President Jones at the ribbon cutting. The new space, located at 1910 Pacific Avenue, includes over 42,000 square feet and will allow for the further development of the College of Business as well as the B.F.A. in visual communication and M.A. in art degree programs. In the 16,000 square feet designated for the visual communications programs, students will gain emphasis in art direction, design, new media and photography.
