She didn’t start her college career
at Texas State, but she got here
as fast as she could
Thousands of students on the Texas State campus embrace their Bobcat pride. Advertising major Britney Munguia is one of them. A transfer student, Munguia has soaked up her experience in Bobcat Country, quickly becoming a part of the fabric of campus.
“Since I was a transfer student and didn’t know the campus at all, I was pretty lost when it came time for spring classes,” Munguia explains. “I stopped and asked a few people for directions, and I remember everyone being so nice and helpful, unlike other college campuses I had been to. A few people even went out of their way and walked me to class!”
Professors also have contributed to Munguia’s campus life experience. Her favorite professor is Isaac Martinez. “I took him for Spanish, and he was really great, always helping as much as he could. Considering I’m not the greatest Spanish-speaking person ever, he did a fantastic job teaching the material over a short summer session,” says Munguia, adding, “Thank you for my A, Professor Martinez!”
Britney really enjoys the scenery and location of the university. “Look at the campus!” she exclaims. “It’s wonderful and lively, and I love everything about it. As any other typical San Marcos student, I love to be at the river – whether it’s floating or just lying out.” What she enjoys most about the location is that “it’s the heart of San Marcos. There’s always something going on, and you’re likely to find something fun or interesting to do at any hour.”
Texas State embraces all students, incoming freshmen, transfers and nontraditional students. The campus is dynamic and has many activities, but never strays from its support of students in their academic endeavors. Britney Munguia advises those interested in Texas State to “just come take a look, I promise you’ll love it.”
