Dr. Hector C. Garcia Plaza

Students can enjoy an outdoor study session at the Dr. Hector P. Garcia Plaza. The plaza was dedicated in 1996 to Dr. Garcia, a Corpus Christi physician and champion of Mexican-American civil rights. The plaza serves as a gathering spot for students, who can reflect on Dr. Garcia’s favorite saying: “Education is our freedom, and freedom should be everybody’s business.” The saying is inscribed on the base of a statue of Dr. Garcia that looks over the plaza along with a fountain. This tranquil space is a great place to crack a book, review notes, or meet with friends to socialize.
