South Texas College of Law Houston

Throwback Thursday: Urban growth and renewal edition

by Heather Kushnerick, Special Collections Librarian & College Archivist

Today is the first day of orientation here at the Houston College of Law. The halls are filled with eager students, ready to embark on the next phase of their lives. All around downtown Houston, the sights and sounds of myriad construction projects let us know that when this class graduates in three years, downtown won’t be the same. Like our entering class, it will have grown and flourished.  It is with change and renewal in mind that we start off the 2016-2017 academic year, and give you this photo, taken in 1976, from our student lounge of the corners of San Jacinto and Polk St.
