Ashley (Knopp) ’18 and Omar Santiago ’19 Mojica
Omar and I met at Texas State University in Summer 2014, I was a sophomore and he was an incoming freshmen. We talked almost every day and I was really hyping him for the big move to San Marcos for college. The first time we met in person was during Boko’s Block Party at President Trauth’s house on campus. He was attending and I was working the event. As the semester went on, I’d always see Omar on campus…ironically always at Commons Dining Hall. We started dating Summer 2015 and that was probably the best summer of my life! We explored San Marcos, fell in love with the hill country and made lifelong friends! Our family grew by two feet in June 2018 and again in July 2019. Our children LOVE Texas State, but specifically Boko the Bobcat! Omar and I finally said “I Do” this October 2022 and had many of our TXST friends in the wedding and in attendance. Coming to Texas State University hands down was the best decision we both made!
