The Texas State Alumni Association is proud to announce the launch of the Young Alumni Council (YAC). The Council serves to encourage young alumni engagement with the university as members of the Alumni Association, keep The Association relevant and enticing to young alumni, and advocate for the needs and interests of young alumni to the Alumni Board of Directors as the voice of the young alumni population. Texas State classifies "young alumni" as Bobcat graduates under the age of 40.
