Aaron’s Thoughts on Texas State
Why Texas State
I wanted to attend a university that was not too big and not too small. When I came to Texas State on a recruiting visit for the track and field team, everything seemed just right. I didn’t visit any other colleges.
I would like to be the general manager or chief executive of a professional sports team someday.
I have to be up early every morning for 8 a.m. football practice. Then I’m off to class. From 2 p.m. to about 3:30 p.m., I hang out at the Athletic Academic Center
or eat with friends at The Lair
or another of the many places to choose from on campus. From 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., it’s back to football for evening meetings followed by an hour of track and field training. Then I do homework and study for the rest of the night. It may seem like a lot for one day, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I enjoyed World Geography 1310 with Dr. Byron Augustin
. He exceeded my expectations for the class with the laid-back atmosphere he created and his widely known sense of humor. Dr. Augustin balances humor and learning so that students have an enjoyable class experience.
Best Studying Advice
Do not let anything distract you. Go somewhere quiet. One great place to study is our Alkek Library
What I Do for Fun
There are way too many things to choose from, but my top three places to go for fun are the Student Rec Center
, Sewell Park and the outlet malls in San Marcos.
