- The University´s eight- million dollar campus begins to take shape as workmen lay foundation near Cholula in the state of Puebla. Looking west from the roof of the 200-year-old hacienda on campues, the famous Teocalli pyramid, with the Nuestra Señora de los Remedios chirch at its peak, can be seen beyond the concrete and steel skeletons of rising buildings. (See Page 4 for a special photo-feature on Cholula and its history.)

- The church, Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, looks down from a high perch. When Spain's soldiers first penetrated into the state of Puebla, this pagan pyramid doninated the Valley of Cholula. But, in their batlte to spread the faith, Spanish priests directed the church's construction on the bones of a dying civilization.
- A glance confirms that Cholula has more than the average community's share of churches. Whith this vicinity has more religious edifices per square foot than our Town, U.S.A., it still carries on in the lively Mexican tradition. Street vendors sell pottery and handicrafts and there is always plenty of action around the corner pulqueria. For the person interested in peasant life, a short ride out of town will put him on a first person basis with rural Mexico.
- The interior of the Royal Chapel, which boasts 47 domes, is esthetically pleasing to visitors today. But historians often contend that the Church-sponsored building effort during the colonial epoch could have been more profitably employed in developing industry and commerce. A phenomemal amount of resources, both human and material, was expended during the 16th and 17th centuries on religious buildings. The result was well over 4,000 church constructions in Mexico alone.
- Triumphant conquistadores used the cross as their symbol throughout Latin America. Its mark has been left on the lenght and breadth of Mexico. the church which it represents initiated changes that reformed an old culture and still molds contemporary Latin American society. the cross above is in the atrium of the Royal Chapel. New archeological excavations on the south flank of the great pyramid are pictured at the left. Most of the structures served a ceremonial purpose. It may be that some of the outlying structures housed priests. Painted murals , stone friezes and burials ahve been uncovered. In the background the fields, still in use today, once supplied the corn, squash and beans tha fed pre-Columbian Cholula.
