Each year, the Texas State Student Foundation sponsors the Bobcat Pause memorial service. 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 event is held at the end of every March.
The ceremony includes remarks by the university president or officials, words of comfort, and a roll call of those being remembered. The university community joins friends and family of the deceased to honor fallen Bobcats.
Attendees are encouraged to bring photos or flowers to display in honor of their loved ones. A reception follows the service.
Student Foundation member Bryan Jordan began Bobcat Pause in 1988.
