Bobcat Build

Part of being a Bobcat is giving back to the community. Bobcat Build is an annual community service day that encourages thousands of Texas State students, faculty and staff to complete hundreds of service projects in San Marcos as a way of saying thank you for the community's continued support of the university.

Student volunteers tackle outdoor projects such as landscaping, painting houses, playground clean-ups, green space trash pick-ups and washing windows at service agencies, schools, churches and in low-income neighborhoods. The project enables participants to develop meaningful relationships with area residents, community leaders schools and nonprofit organizations.
