Why did you choose to become an admissions counselor?
When I was in high school, my parents didn’t have the opportunity to take me to visit different colleges because they had to work to keep the lights on. The main exposure to colleges and universities were from the Admissions Counselors coming to my high school which helped me tremendously. If it wasn’t for those admissions counselors helping me out and guiding me, I don’t know if I would’ve continued my education. I want to be able to impact other students the same way I was impacted.
What are three things you love about Texas State?
First would have to be that we are the only campus with a river running through it. The San Marcos River is coming in at a super chill 72 degrees all year round. Our beautiful crystal-clear river has brought me up when I am down and taught me that sometimes I just need to slow down and “smell the roses”.
Second, the McCoy College of Business Administration has so many hands-on classes that put you through real world scenarios. As a student, I felt like all my professors genuinely cared about my education and wanted to see me succeed in my professional career.
Finally, I love the Vibes at Texas State. I remember my first day on campus and everyone was so welcoming and helpful. I continued to witness that willingness to help another bobcat out until my last day on campus. That kind of culture can be very contagious and that is the kind of culture I want to be apart of.
What is your favorite tradition at Texas State?
My favorite tradition has to be Homecoming. The campus becomes so lively with events and school spirit. It really makes you proud to be a Bobcat.
