The Campus

The University is located on what was formerly the estate of noted San Antonio philanthropist, businessman, and civil servant, Col. George W. Brackenridge. His home, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, still stands on the campus. The headwaters of the San Antonio River are also located on the campus, and at one time, the natural beauty as well as the clear spring water made it a favored campsite for Native American tribes. Archeological studies have produced Paleo-Indian projectile points that date back well over 11,000 years.

The 110-acre campus combines the natural beauty of the historic grounds with state-of-the-art facilities and technology. Each building features presentation and wireless technology in the classroom in addition to the technologies specific to the courses taught in that specific building. Residence halls and gathering places, both internal and external, feature wireless technology as well. Additionally, the Burton E. Grossman International Conference Center provides expansive state-of-the-art facilities meeting and conference, as well as housing for visiting foreign dignitaries and students.

Abundant athletic facilities, practice fields and many walking paths provide ample locations to improve upon the student's physical dimension as well as the spiritual and mental dimensions. The park-like atmosphere encourages private reflection as well as intellectual stimulation.
