New buildings are shooting up around the sun-baked grounds of the Texas A&M University System's northernmost outpost here. There's a $32 million glass-fronted complex near completion that will house the nursing program and administrative offices, and a new $11 million recreation center that will also have a lab to study kinesiology, or human movement. TAMU-Texarkana may be the smallest of the system's 11 campuses, but it's been growing steadily. Enrollment at the beginning of the academic year just ended was up 13 percent from 2014, to 2,038.
