In 1889, William L. Mayo founded East Texas Normal College to provide Northeast Texas residents with opportunities for higher education. The university has since evolved from “Old ET” to join The Texas A&M University System, but Mayo’s creed of “ceaseless industry, fearless

investigation, unfettered thought, and unselfish service to others” still lives on in the lives of A&M-Commerce students and alumni.

DID YOU KNOW? A&M-Commerce is the second-largest member of The Texas A&M University System. A&M-Commerce is home to 9,000 students, three academic colleges, 100 degree programs and four satellite campuses throughout the Metroplex. Chances are good that one of your favorite teachers is a Lion. A&M-Commerce is one of the state’s top producers of teachers, superintendents and principals.
