Alexandrea's Thoughts on Texas State
Why Texas State
I come from a small town, so the fact that Texas State was in a college town that’s not too big and not too far from home definitely helped me decide to come here.
Why Construction Science and Management
My father has always been involved in construction and the field has always interested me. When I found out Texas State has a construction management program, I knew that is where I wanted to be.
To be a successful and reliable senior project manager for a respected general contractor.
How My Major Will Help Me Reach My Goals
The Construction Science and Management Program at Texas State is great. The curriculum and the real-world experience we are receiving in our course work is preparing me and my peers to be successful in our careers when we graduate.
The best course I have completed is TECH 4368, Environmentally Conscious Design and Construction. It is a difficult but very interesting course focused on green building and the factors that go into building an environmentally friendly project.
Most Valuable Learning Experience
As cliché as it sounds, hard work and dedication really do pay off.
Being elected as an officer in the Construction Student Association has provided me with opportunities related to my future career that I would not have received otherwise.
Construction Student Association
Benefits of Organization Membership
The organization has taught me how to manage my time and be more responsible by being held liable for activities other than just schoolwork. I also have had many networking opportunities by attending construction industry events that Construction Student Association members are invited to. I’m proud of being avidly involved with the construction program and having a hand in the growth and future success of our program as a whole.
I am the secretary of the Construction Student Association as well as the head of the Special Events Committee.
Best Event on Campus
The best events I have attended at Texas State are the tailgates. Having everyone out there socializing before the games definitely highlights the friendliness of the students that attend the university.
What I Like Most About Texas State
The atmosphere. Everyone here is so friendly and welcoming.
Honors, Awards and Scholarships
Dean’s List 2009 and the Dewitt Churchill Memorial Scholarship
What I Like Most About San Marcos
The small-town feel, location and the river.
What I Tell Anyone Considering Texas State
Become a Bobcat! It’s one of the best decisions you can make. The town and university are great! I couldn’t imagine ever attending any other university.
