Each year, the Texas State Student Foundation sponsors the Bobcat Pause memorial service. Introduced in the late 1980s, Bobcat Pause provides the Texas State community with a time to remember and honor Texas State faculty, staff, students, alumni and special friends who died during the preceding year.
The university community joins friends and family of the deceased to honor fallen Bobcats. The ceremony includes remarks by the university president or officials, words of comfort, and a roll call of those being remembered. The event is held every spring.
