Elise’s Thoughts on Texas State
Why Texas State
I want to become a dentist, and I heard the program was outstanding at Texas State. I also love the beautiful campus, and I wanted to be in the Strutters
Why I Chose My Major
I am majoring in biology
because I hope to pursue a career someday as a dentist.
My Typical Class-Day Schedule
I usually go to class from 12:30-1:50 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays and then Strutters practice from 3:30 p.m. until we are finished. Tuesdays and Thursdays I go from 11 a.m.-4:50 p.m., and every Tuesday I also have my sorority meetings.
My Favorite Professor
Dr. Marian Houser, my communications teacher, is my favorite because she makes the class so interesting. She likes to relate what she is teaching to real-life situations. She wants you to understand what she is teaching, which I think is what every professor should do.
My Most Valuable Learning Experience
I have learned how to manage my time efficiently. I am involved in so much on campus, being at Texas State has taught me how not to waste any time and get things done on time.
Benefits of Membership
One good benefit is the connections you develop during your time on campus. Another benefit is having a lot of different organizations on your résumé, which helps you show how you were involved and were still able to make good grades.
Favorite Campus Hangout
The Alkek Library, because that’s where I get everything done and because lots of people go there.
Where I Go to Relax
My aunt’s house, since she lives in San Marcos. What better place to go than to go home to see family and even eat a home-cooked meal?
What I Like Most About Texas State
I don’t have to work out as much because everywhere you go there are hills or stairs. On a serious note, the Strutters organization has been wonderful. It has opened many new doors for me. We went to Chile for spring break, something I never would have done otherwise.
What I Would Tell Someone Interested in Texas State
You can’t go wrong with Texas State. The campus is beautiful, and there are so many different organizations to be involved in. Also, Texas State is not too big but not too small, so classes aren’t overwhelming with so many students. The professors are always willing to help you out.
