Throwback Thursday: Construction Edition

by Heather Kushnerick, Special Collections Librarian & College Archivist

You might have noticed that there is a bit of dust in the air at South Texas College of Law as our entrance undergoes renovation. If you didn't notice the dust, you've undoubtedly noticed the detours that are required to get around the first two floors. We've had a few other such projects in recent years - the last being the renovation of the 10th floor for the Randall O. Sorrels Legal Clinics.  We've had major construction projects as well, such as the building of the Fred Parks Law Library in 2001. Our first major construction project was the expansion of South Texas in March 1975, with the groundbreaking ceremony for the Jones Building.  Today’s throwback Thursday picture is a promotional flyer that was sent out to show the progress of construction on our new addition, which houses the Joe M. Green Auditorium (you can see the sloped support beams in the photo). Our original building, the Neal building, was refaced during this project, giving us our current look.
