Brian’s Thoughts on Texas State
 

Why Texas State

I chose Texas State University because the campus has the feel of an extended family, my home away from home. The traditions, old and new, were also why I chose to become a Bobcat.

Why Political Science

I plan to pursue a law degree to help people, to make sure that justice is served as it should always be. Political science majors are known to do well in law school, and Texas State’s School of Liberal Arts is where I found the focus of my education.

How My Minor Will Help Me Reach My Goals

My minor has helped me because when I took lessons at the Texas State bassoon studio, it helped me develop stronger time management skills, which are vital to anyone pursuing a professional career.

Favorite Professor

Daris Hale of the School of Music’s bassoon studio. She has helped me develop as not only a better bassoonist, but as a student ready to face the hardships of life.

Best Studying Advice

Do not underestimate the small percentage of your class grade — such as quizzes — that add up to 10 percent of your overall grade. These small factors can sometimes be the things that help you make the highest possible grade in your classes.

My Clubs and Organizations

Lambda Omega Alpha - Catholic Service Fraternity
University Ambassadors - The 40 Faces of Texas State
The ROCK! - Praise and Worship group

Honors and Awards

I was honored to be appointed as an intern for U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, and to be a grass-roots organizer for the Obama administration in my hometown. Then I was elected to the Caldwell County Democratic Executive Committee as the youngest precinct chairman in Lockhart.

Favorite Place in Campus

The H.L. Grant Catholic Student Center, because of the sense of family that the center shares with anyone who stops by to chat.

Favorite Studying Spot

The best place to study in my opinion would have to be the SLAC lab on the fourth floor of the Alkek Library.

Surprises About Texas State

I was surprised at how friendly the Texas State community was to me from the first moment I stepped on campus.

What I Tell Future Texas State Students

I would say that should you choose to attend Texas State, be prepared to be a part of a journey that can only be explained once you become a Bobcat for life.
