“Besides the freebies afterward, I do enjoy the beautiful scenery along the walk. Our Lady of the Lake University has always held a special place in my heart since coming here from El Paso, and every time I go for a walk around Elmendorf Lake, I am reminded of OLLU’s beauty and it’s importance to San Antonio’s history.” Dominguez said.
