Bobcat - David Marshall



David's Thoughts on Texas State


Why Texas State

I chose Texas State because it had everything I was looking for: a location in the Texas Hill Country, a great criminal justice program and friendly people. 

Why Criminal Justice

My dad’s career as a police detective inspired me to help people just like he does. A degree in criminal justice will prepare me for a wide range of career opportunities from retail loss prevention to corrections to law enforcement. I’ll be able to help make my community a better place for everyone to live.

Career Goals

I would like to further my education by getting my master’s degree in criminal justice. Also, I would like to continue working in loss prevention to advance to a management position or work for a federal law enforcement agency such as the FBI or DEA.

How My Major Will Help Me Reach My Goals

Texas State has one of the best criminal justice programs. All of my professors have exceptional experience and have taught me a lot.

Favorite Professor

Dr. Wayman Mullins’ terrorism class was really cool because he is very knowledgeable on the subject, but all of my criminal justice professors have been phenomenal. Their experience in the field is outstanding.

Best Studying Advice

Don’t procrastinate! Get started early. 

 

My Organizations

Lambda Omega Alpha Catholic Service Fraternity
Bobcat Awakening Retreat

Why I am Involved at Texas State

It’s really great to have a core group of people to hang out with and get to know. My fraternity brothers have definitely helped me grow, and I know I can always count on them for anything.

My Leadership Positions

President, Lambda Omega Alpha Catholic Service Fraternity

Favorite Campus Hangout

The Catholic Student Center. They have everything from daily and Sunday masses to free lunch on Tuesdays, and a lounge to hang out in. It’s really like a home away from home.

Favorite Campus Dining Hall

Breakfast at Commons … all you can eat!

Where I Relax

Mochas and Javas is great and it’s really close to campus.
