"A Place To Start"
By: Luis Rasgado
Graduating from high school has always been a far away dream for many students. It takes time, patience and the willingness to learn, once a student graduates from high school, not only do they get the opportunity to go out into the real world, but they have the opportunity to keep excelling and achieve more knowledge by going to college. Not many though have this opportunity, either because they don't have the sufficient funds to go or simply because they are not informed about the benefits of getting a higher education.

This university began as the East Texas Normal College in 1889 when founder William Leonidas Mayo opened the doors to a one-building campus in Cooper, Texas, roughly 16 miles northeast of Commerce. After the original campus was destroyed by a fire in 1894, Mayo moved the college to its present location in Commerce, Texas, due to the presence of a railroad to commute students from Dallas and areas from both North and East Texas.
