Texas A&M University (Texas A&M, TAMU (/ˈtæmuː/), or A&M) is a coeducational public research university located in College Station, Texas, United States. It is the flagship institution of the Texas A&M University System, the fourth-largest university in the United States and the largest university in Texas. Texas A&M's designation as a land, sea, and space grant institution reflects a range of research with ongoing projects funded by agencies such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Office of Naval Research. The school ranks in the top 20 American research institutes in funding and has made contributions to such fields as animal cloning and petroleum engineering.

The first public institution of higher education in Texas, the school opened on October 4, 1876 as the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas under the provisions of the Morrill Land-Grant Acts. Originally, the college taught no classes in agriculture, instead concentrating on classical studies, languages, literature, and applied mathematics. After four years, students could attain degrees in scientific agriculture, civil and mining engineering, and language and literature. Under the leadership of President James Earl Rudder in the 1960s, A&M desegregated, became coeducational, and dropped the requirement for participation in the Corps of Cadets. To reflect the institution's expanded roles and academic offerings, the Texas Legislature renamed the school to Texas A&M University in 1963. The letters "A&M", originally short for "Agricultural and Mechanical", are retained only as a link to the university's past. The school's students, alumni, and sports teams are known as Aggies.

The main campus is one of the largest in the United States, spanning 5,200 acres (21 km2), and includes the George Bush Presidential Library. About one-fifth of the student body lives on campus. Texas A&M has approximately 1,000 officially recognized student organizations. Many students also observe the traditions of Texas A&M University, which govern daily life, as well as special occasions, including sports events. On July 1, 2012, the school joined the Southeastern Conference. A&M operates two branches: Texas A&M at Qatar and Texas A&M University at Galveston. Working with agencies such as the Texas AgriLife Research and Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Texas A&M has a direct presence in each of the 254 counties in Texas. The university offers degrees in over 150 courses of study through ten colleges and houses 18 research institutes. Texas A&M has awarded over 320,000 degrees, including 70,000 graduate and professional degrees.

As a Senior Military College, Texas A&M is one of six American public universities with a full-time, volunteer Corps of Cadets who study alongside civilian undergraduate students.

San AntonioBusinessLaw

The founding institution, Dickinson Business School, was established in 1921 by Harold R. Frazell to train typists in Kansas City, Missouri. In 1953, a secretarial program was added, a new shorthand system was developed, and by the late nineteen fifties this system was widely accepted in the Kansas City area and became known as “Dickinson Shorthand.”

In the early 1970s, a Missouri corporation consisting of two local educators purchased Dickinson Business School and modified the schools educational programs to emphasize individualized, self-paced instruction, and in late December 1981, Mr. Lawrence D. Earle purchased an interest in the institution, broadening the financial base of the school.

By August 1982, Dickinson Business School became accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Independent Colleges and Schools, ACICS, and the San Antonio campus was approved by the Texas Education Agency on December 13, 1983. The first classes began on January 3, 1984, and due to overwhelming success, in 1988, the San Antonio campus was granted “main campus status” by ACICS. Approximately six years later, on December 20, 1989, Mr. Earle acquired all outstanding stock of the school from his partner, changed the institution’s name to Career Point Business School, and focused solely on the main campus in San Antonio, and a branch campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Over the next six years, Career Point Business School increased the sizes of both campuses, as it offered programs in the Medical, Business, Legal and Technology fields.

As times changed, the school underwent a transition to competency-based training and assessment, and continued to modify its program offerings, which eventually led the Board of Directors to change the school’s name to Career Point Institute on March 27, 2001. Soon thereafter, with the introduction of various Associate’s Degree programs, the name changed one final time to Career Point College at the end of 2007.

Since 2011, Career Point College has made significant additions to the program offerings at both campuses. The Texas Board of Nursing approved Career Point College to offer Vocational and Registered Nursing Programs at the School of Nursing and Medical Technology on the San Antonio campus, and both the Texas and Oklahoma State Boards of Cosmetology have approved cosmetology programs to be taught at the Schools of Cosmetology on both campuses.

Koehler Cultural Center

San AntonioCultural StudiesHistory

The Koehler Cultural Center is located on the campus of San Antonio College. The Center was donated to San Antonio College and houses part of the school’s arts department. The Center is also known as the Koehler house/mansion and is a focal point for the educational and social life of the college. It provides a link to the living history of the area, and forms an important part of the architectural heritage of south central Texas.

The Center is located at 310 West Ashby, which at the time was considered the “outskirts” of San Antonio. In the late 19th century, the Indian threat prevented the development of the city to the north beyond the San Pedro area. It wasn’t until after the capture of the Apache war chief Geronimo that San Antonio real estate developers started building in this area, where Midtown and Uptown San Antonio now stand.

Otto Koehler originally built the mansion in 1901-1902, utilizing the services of Carol von Seutter as the chief architect of the mansion. Mr. Koehler came to San Antonio in 1884 and was one of the organizers of the San Antonio Brewing Association, now known as Pearl Brewing Company. According to legend, Koehler selected the spot due to its unobstructed view of his brewery, and could determine whether or not his employees were hard at work by the color of the smoke coming from the smokestacks. This Victorian style mansion is a good example of the eclectic architectural style that was popular during the late 19th century and early 20th century.
