Briscoe Administration Building

Bryan Wildenthal Memorial Library

The cornerstone of Sul Ross, the Briscoe Administration Building, was the first academic building constructed on the Sul Ross Normal College campus.

The establishment of Sul Ross was approved by the Texas legislature in the summer of 1917, but World War I caused a delay in construction until early 1919. The Administration Building was completed in 1920 and opened its doors to students on June 14, 1920. Janie Micou Wade enrolled as the first Sul Ross student.

Today the Briscoe Administration Building is home to most central administrative offices as well as Admissions, Financial Aid, News and Publications, the Department of Public Safety and Purchasing.
