Happenings: Back to School 2012

Come to campus refreshed, ready
for another excellent semester

Students in Texas State fanfare

Eat 'em up, Cats!

Texas State’s spring semester begins Tuesday, Jan. 17. We know you’re busy gathering your books, hunting for your favorite highlighter and finalizing your parking strategy, but we just wanted to remind you that Texas State offers more than classes — we’re a community, here to enrich your life.

Below we’ve listed links to campus resources that can help you start well and finish strong this semester. After you’ve breathed a sigh of relief — because NSO is over, you’re moved in and your parents are back at home — take a minute to learn about the many opportunities you’ll have to get involved during the first few weeks of classes.
