It is my pleasure as the President of your Texas State University Alumni Association to congratulate you on your graduation and to welcome you to our ever-growing alumni family – you are now one of more than 224,000 Bobcat alumni worldwide! On this special day, remember that graduation is not the end of your journey at Texas State, but rather the beginning of your lifelong connection to the university. The Alumni Association’s mission is to keep you connected with Texas State and provide opportunities for you to continue creating relationships with fellow Bobcats. I encourage you to take advantage of our programs and events. To get started, here are some easy ways to get involved.
KEEP IN TOUCH. Bobcat alumni go on to impact communities across Texas and around the world. Make sure to visit alumni.txstate.edu and update your contact information so you always have access to the latest Alumni Association news.
ENGAGE ONLINE. Connect with us on Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook for the latest information on alumni news and events, and a look into what is happening at Texas State. Want to start a conversation? Our groups on Facebook and LinkedIn also allow you to easily network and connect with thousands of Bobcat alumni.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF CAREER SERVICES. As an alum, you have access to lifetime Career Services, including career counseling, resume and cover letter review, interview preparation, and career fairs.
STAY CONNECTED. Keep in touch with the Bobcats you know and meet the ones you don’t by participating in one of our regional and affinity-based Alumni Networks or attending alumni or athletic events.
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT. Texas State wouldn’t be the university it is today without the alumni who represent us and advocate for our mission long after graduation. Whether you choose to volunteer your time (we can connect you with opportunities across both of our campuses!), recruit prospective Bobcats, or give to the university during our annual Step Up for State event, there are always ways for you to support the Texas State community.
KEEP THAT MAROON AND GOLD ON HIGH. Your Texas State pride is endless. When you become a Forever Bobcat, not only are you demonstrating your Bobcat spirit, but you also gain access to exclusive opportunities and invest in our university’s legacy. As a Forever Bobcat, you will help students succeed, and make it possible for Texas State to work toward a stronger, more sustainable future. To celebrate your achievement, a reduced rate is available exclusively for new graduates.
You have worked hard to earn your degree, and your alma mater is proud of you. Remember, “Once a Bobcat, Always a Bobcat,” means Texas State will always be an important part of you, and you will always be an important part of Texas State. Be active within your Alumni Association, demonstrate your Bobcat pride, and get to know more about us at alumni.txstate.edu.
I wish you all the best in your endeavors, and I hope to meet many of you at alumni events. Again, we welcome you, congratulate you, and look forward to helping you maintain your relationship with Texas State University.
Once a Bobcat, Always a Bobcat!
