For the first time in its 113-year history, students at Texas Woman’s University have elected a man as president of the Student Government Association. The university enrolls about 15,000 students at campuses in Denton, Dallas, and Houston. Although men have been admitted since 1972, women make up 90 percent of the undergraduate student body. The student body is diverse. African Americans are 21 percent of all undergraduate students.

Landon Dickerson is a junior from Houston who is following a pre-med track and majoring in biology. He was a student at historically Black Xavier University in New Orleans but transferred to Texas Woman’s University in 2012.
