Creating a beautiful place for students to get their education was important to USD's co-founder Mother Rosalie Hill.
"There are three things that are significant in education: beauty, truth and goodness. But the only one that attracts people on sight is beauty. If beauty attracts people, they will come and find the truth and have goodness communicated to them by the kind of people here,” said Hill.
