Geography of Texas
The geography of Texas is diverse and far reaching in scope. Occupying about 7% of the total water and land area of the U.S., it is the second largest state after Alaska, and is the southernmost part of the Great Plains, which end in the south against the folded Sierra Madre Oriental of Mexico. Texas is in the south-central part of the United States of America, and is considered to form part of the U.S. South and also part of the U.S. Southwest.
By residents, the state is generally divided into North Texas, East Texas, Central Texas, South Texas, West Texas (and sometimes the Panhandle), but according to the Texas Almanac, Texas has four major physical regions: Gulf Coastal Plains, Interior Lowlands, Great Plains, and Basin and Range Province. This has been cited as the difference between human geography and physical geography, although the fact that Texas was granted the prerogative to divide into as many as five U.S. states may be a historical motive for Texans defining their state as containing exactly five regions.

Grayson College (GC) is a community college located in Grayson County, Texas. GC's main campus is located in Denison, with branch campuses in Sherman, Van Alstyne and Bonham (the latter in neighboring Fannin County).
In February 2007, GC's Board of Trustees called for a $44,790,000 bond election to expand and improve the existing campus, which was held in May and the referendum passed. This was GC's first bond election since the one called to create the campus in the 1960s. Among other things, $25.7 million would be devoted to a new Career and Technical Center on the East campus, moving these facilities from their current West Campus location.
