We are Bobcats Helping Bobcats

This past weekend, a large portion of our Bobcat Family was affected by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.  The Texas State Alumni Association has partnered with Texas State University to help communicate with our alumni and help raise funds for the Student Emergency Fund.

Through the Office of Student Emergency Services, our university has the ability to supplement students who are impacted by natural disasters through the Student Emergency Fund. However, these funds are limited.

Over 8,500 Texas State students lived in areas impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and they need your help. Please consider making a donation to support students impacted by this disaster.

When tragedies like this strike, our Bobcats are quick to respond. We have also seen our Bobcats spring into action, helping local authorities evacuate residents from flooded parts of Houston and other areas. We are inspired by these examples and know there are many more who are willing to lend their assistance to anyone in need.

The needs related to this storm will not be fully known until the skies have cleared and the streets have dried.  Now and in the future, we encourage you to find a way to help, whether that is by giving of your time to assist with the clean-up, supporting relief groups, or by praying for those impacted by the storm and those leading the recovery efforts.

Weather Statement from Monday, August 28

Published Monday, August 28 by Texas State Univeristy News 


Dear Texas State Community,

While Tropical Storm Harvey continues to inundate the coastal region of Texas, its impact over the past weekend on Texas State’s campuses in San Marcos and Round Rock was limited primarily to minor water leaks in buildings and downed tree limbs. Maintenance crews are addressing those issues today, and the university is scheduled to begin its first day of fall classes on Tuesday, August, 29, 2017. Normal university operations for all staff and faculty also will resume on Tuesday, August 29.

We know that many Bobcats and their families from the Gulf Coast are still unable to travel because of the hazards associated with the tropical storm. The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority. Once students are able to safely travel to the university, they should contact their instructors to make arrangements for missed class work and assignments. Staff and faculty impacted by severe weather and who can’t make it to work should notify their appropriate supervisors.

Additionally, Texas State Athletics officials are working with their counterparts at Houston Baptist University on reaching a decision regarding the scheduled Saturday, September 2, football game. We will notify our fans as soon as a decision is reached.

Although more rain is forecast this week in San Marcos and Round Rock, no severe weather is predicted. As always, the university will be closely monitoring the weather and providing updates to the Texas State community as needed. Our thoughts are with all Texans who are being impacted by this severe weather event.
