Bobcat - Joshua Booker

Joshua's Thoughts on Texas State

Why Texas State

I visited the campus my senior year of high school; the people were amazing!

Why Accounting

Accounting has taught me valuable analytical skills. The faculty in the business school has really put forth a great effort in seeing that my educational needs are met.

Career Goals

I hope to become an attorney.

Favorite professor

Dr. John McGee. He encourages his students through friendly and competitive learning. Everyone wants to be No. 1 in his class.  

My Most Valuable Learning Experience
at Texas State

I learned my freshman year that time management is key to effective learning. I had to understand that there are 24 hours in a day!

Best Studying Advice

Read, read and read! Study in an environment that suits your learning needs. Ask yourself, “Do I study better with people or in isolation?” I often study on the fourth or seventh floors of the library.

My Clubs and Organizations

Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity
National Association of Black Accountants (NABA)
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
Students with Alternative Transportation

My Leadership Positions

Executive planning chair of NABA
Vice president of pledge class for Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Fraternity
Secretary of pledge class for Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.

Why I’m Involved at Texas State

Clubs and organizations help me develop friendships with students who have similar passions and interests. I have made some of my best friends through my involvement with groups like NABA.

Best Campus Hangout

George’s. I go to study, watch football games on the giant TV screen, play pool, or even share a special moment with a friend.

Best Campus Restaurant or Dining Hall

I like to eat at Jones Food Court. They have several healthy food choices. I love the toasted turkey sandwich on wheat with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and both mayo and mustard.

Where To Go to Relax

I like to view the beautiful scenery of San Marcos from the top level of my apartment complex’s parking garage. At night, the city of San Marcos lights up wonderfully. I think the stars seem to shine brighter in the Hill Country.

What I Like Most About Texas State

I love the people and the faculty that make this school great!
