There’s no better way to find out what campus is really like than to explore it with a current Texas State student. We welcome visitors to campus all year long. Our student tour guides will show you the heart of campus, share their experiences as Bobcats and provide general information about the university they call home. Tours are outdoors and last about an hour and 30 minutes, so wear your walking shoes and dress for the weather!
