Because of your generous actions, I will be able to focus on my studies and decrease the amount of stress when it comes to paying for tuition. I also appreciate everything that you have done to put this scholarship together to help young adults who choose to continue their education.

With the athletic scholarship you have provided for me, I was able to attend the summer classes I needed to stay caught up. It has lifted a huge weight off of me and my mom's shoulders financially, as we didn't know how we were going to make up that portion of my classes.

Campuses NEXT is our beautiful and cutting-edge facilities

We will continue to build visionary learning spaces, and uncover the NEXT breakthrough.

My aunt took me to see the Texas State campus and immediately, I fell in love. Here, I don't feel like a face in the crowd, a number in the system. I cannot walk anywhere on campus without knowing someone. My friends say that the Quad is my hometown because I seem to talk to everyone that passes me. I came here for the rigor and the beauty.
