A popular gathering place for students, the fountain sits in the middle of the Endowment Courtyard between Cardenas North and South Halls.

Around the fountain are commemorative brick pavers placed in honor of donors to the “Challenge for Excellence” scholarship endowment program.

Cardenas Hall is named for Mary Rose Cardenas, a longtime former Texas Southmost College trustee who was instrumental in the establishment of the UTB partnership.

Gorgas Hall is the centerpiece of the campus. Spacious arcades and graceful arches adorn what was once the post hospital of historic Fort Brown.
