What advice do you have for future students? 

You will take from this place only what you put into it. Give as much of yourself to the undergraduate experience as it is going to give to you.

What are three things you love about Texas State?

  • The natural beauty of this place; it is almost surreal in some areas on campus;

  • The commitment and support by faculty and staff to the individual student; at Texas State, students are our most valuable asset;

  • And Bobcat pride!
