A large portion of the undergraduate and graduate students and faculty comes from all over the United States. Every state in the country, including Puerto Rico, has ample representation, besides numerous native Texans. Do not be surprised to find residents from China, Central America, Africa, and Europe too. A visitor from anywhere in the world would feel right at home in such a community.
