Celebrating 125 Years

The University is turning 125 in 2024! In order to celebrate the alumni experience, we will be conducting an Oral History project to capture and share stories throughout the years. Whether you graduated from Southwest Texas or Texas State - once a Bobcat, always a Bobcat!  

We have teamed up with our partner, Publishing Concepts, Inc. (PCI) to collect stories from Bobcats and preserve them in a book that celebrates the impact the University has had on your lives and who you are today. The project will be completed and publications mailed in the Fall of 2024.

You will be contacted via yellow postcard and email communication asking you to give them a call, verify your information and share your story. 

While you will be asked if you would like to purchase a commemorative package at the end of your call, there's NO PURCHASE NECESSARY in order to participate.
