A&M breaks ground on first building

Forty years ago, the entire South Side of San Antonio smelled like a dump. Raw sewage flowed into Mitchell Lake and landfills and junkyards pockmarked the landscape. No one in their right mind would have invested there, said former Mayor Henry Cisneros.  On Friday, when Texas A&M University-San Antonio broke ground on a campus on South Side, it was a sign of the changing times.  “We are a transformed city with great prospects,” Cisneros told a crowd of more than 300 people gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking. “I am so happy the spirit of Texas A&M University is coming to San Antonio.”
