About Our Lady of the Lake University:

On the foundation of faith, wisdom and trust in Providence, Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) prepares graduates to transform their communities, families and professions.

OLLU, founded in 1895 by the Congregation of Divine Providence, is a coeducational comprehensive institution with an enrollment of more than 3,100 students. With its main residential campus in San Antonio and non-traditional programs in San Antonio, Houston, the Rio Grande Valley (La Feria), and online, OLLU has a presence in two of the largest cities in Texas, the border region, and literally around the world.

The University offers more than 30 undergraduate majors and minors, 14 master's programs and three doctoral programs through its College of Arts and Sciences, School of Business and Leadership, and the College of Professional Studies. OLLU offers classes in daytime, evening, weekend and online formats.

Building on the foundation of the Catholic tradition, the Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology and Spiritual Action provides students with a comprehensive academic study of religion and theology. Studying theology offers students a unique opportunity to draw from human experience and ask fundamental questions about life and meaning. In addition to the rich Christian tradition, theological reflection at OLLU draws from a variety of academic sources including psychology, history, sociology, anthropology, economics and more.

OLLU shares the campus with its founding order, which provides for a naturally religious community where students gain greater insight into the religion and values of the Catholic Church, women's spirituality, and Latino's religious expression and spirituality. Additionally, students can volunteer in the community through the Providence Leadership Program. The program allows students to explore ministry as a life path through mentoring and other service-learning experiences.
