Family and Guest NSO

Welcome to New Student Orientation! Family plays an integral role in a student's transition to Texas State, so we have created a special NSO experience designed to welcome you to the Bobcat family.

New Student Orientation is designed to help your student learn their way around Texas State, connect with campus resources, become familiar with important policies, and start to feel what it is like to be a Bobcat. Optional family programming is also available with content specifically designed to help you support your new Bobcat. You are invited to participate, but it is not required.

You are also invited to join the Bobcat Family Portal, where you can stay informed about university news and events, and connect with Texas State representatives and other new Bobcat families.

Family Association

The Texas State Family Association has been dedicated to helping Bobcat families remain connected to their student’s university experience since 1976. The Association seeks to promote and sponsor programs that meet the needs of families as well as involve them in the life of the membership and university community alike.
