Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) provides an education that gives students the tools to reach new heights. Ranked forty-seventh in the nation for the upward social mobility of its graduates by U.S. News & World Report, OLLU launches students to be leaders in their communities and career fields. With a strong social justice foundation, the overall experience is designed to propel OLLU Saints to positions of power and influence to make the world a better place.
Students get the most out of their investment by doubling or tripling the value of their degree at OLLU. The university has made it easy for students to complete two majors, or a major and two minors, in just four years. This is possible through a redesigned general education curriculum that gives graduates the benefit of at least three career tracks—one in each major and a third from the combined major.
OLLU offers small classes, individualized learning opportunities, and a supportive community. The main residential campus in San Antonio includes French-inspired buildings overlooking peaceful Lake Elmendorf where students enjoy kayaking or walking on the lake trail. OLLU’s two additional campus locations in Houston and the Rio Grande Valley serve adult students at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels.
OLLU’s seventeen athletic teams compete in men’s and women’s basketball, cross country, golf, tennis, track and field, and soccer; women’s softball and volleyball; men’s baseball; and coed cheer and dance.
