I have a bit more appreciation and interest in history and literature than my husband, so this place was quite boring for him. However, I enjoyed it, and loved the architecture and small details! It was a bit awkward when walking in areas where students were studying, but I'm sure they are used to it.

This place is so beautiful. It's a great place to study in or just look at. Also, the garden beside it is a great place to study as well.

Philanthropist Dr. A.J. Armstrong wanted to create the “most beautiful building in Texas,” and the end result was this 3-story, Italian Renaissance-styled masterpiece adorned with 62 stained glass windows, massive marble columns and intricate ceiling designs. Armstrong justified the expense by pointing out that the “compelling beauty” of the building might be able to inspire someone enough that "if we by that means give the world another Dante, another Shakespeare, another Browning, we shall count the cost a bargain."
