“Having another higher learning opportunity and a prestigious Christian Catholic University like UST in Conroe, is huge,” said Conroe Mayor Jody Czajkoski. “It's all about the workforce and educating the future students.”

UST President Dr. Richard Ludwick shared that he takes pride in the Center’s connection to, and purpose within the community.

“The vision that we have for the programs that we will offer here, will take students on a journey of self discovery, but more than that, empower them to know the future for themselves,” he said. “They will come to realize that they are given special gifts or talents, and with this engagement, will bring those to full flourish … The joyful piece is how they share those gifts with the world.”

The experience at USTMAX Center is unique; it’s accessible, it’s engaging, and it’s affordable.
