Our 16,000-square-foot campus is located just 15 minutes from downtown Austin, the "Live Music Capital of the World." With music pouring from the city's clubs, restaurants, coffeehouses, and bookstores, Austin claims to have more music venues per capita than any other U.S. city. Several high-tech companies reside in the area, earning Austin the nickname "Silicon Hills." Situated on the edge of Texas Hill Country, Austin is surrounded by lakes and rivers with countless hiking and biking trails, picturesque waterside restaurants, and exciting outdoor activities like tubing, boating, and waterskiing. Excellent weather, a low cost of living, an easygoing lifestyle, and a diverse population ranging from students and musicians to tech employees and politicians have earned Austin national recognition. Our award-winning city consistently sits atop Forbes’ annual listings: in 2013 alone, Forbes named Austin the Best Biggest Boom Town, Best City for Future Growth, and America’s Fastest Growing City.
