A local university is sharing its student successes and new facilities with state lawmakers.

Today the speaker of the Texas House of Representatives Dennis Bonnen joined Rep. Gary Van Deaver for a tour of Texas A&M University’s Texarkana campus. 

Students showed off projects and provided a sneak peek of the school’s newest building. 

Bonnen said one highlight of the tour was the mock hospital set up for nursing students to practice patient care. 

“The opportunity to have such a real-life experience and train those students to be able to go out and have already been through those traumatic experiences that can happen in that profession and be so well prepared is really exceptional,” said Bonnen. 
 
Campus officials say the building will officially open later this month.
