Bobcat - Julius Garcia

Julius' Thoughts on Texas State

Why Texas State

I visited Texas State while on a “college visit” day in high school. I fell in love with this place and all the other options just couldn't compare. So naturally, I chose the best.

Why Communication Studies

I started with a major in mass communication, but then I realized that I am more interested in speaking with people and learning how to communicate in more personal environments. So I changed to communication studies.

Favorite Professor

Mike Cornett. I had him for Introduction to Interpersonal Communication. He was super cool, super laid back and always kept class interesting. His class was informative and fun to go to.  

My Most Valuable Learning Experience at Texas State

Diversity! I have learned the importance and value of being aware of diversity and embracing it on a daily basis.

My Best Studying Advice

Use the library’s personal study rooms, which are quiet and help you avoid distractions. They’re open 24 hours during finals.

My Clubs and Organizations

Hip Hop Congress, vice president of public relations

Why I’m Involved at Texas State

Being in a club or organization gets me involved on campus and teaches me how to work in a business-oriented program. I’ve met new people and have been able to network with many people here at Texas State. Plus it's usually a lot of fun.


LBJ Achievement Scholarship

What I Do for Fun

There is usually something new going on every day at Texas State, like football tailgates, basketball games, the KTSW Lunchbox events in the LBJ amphitheater and the SACA poetry slams. I try to go to as much stuff as possible.

What I Tell Future Texas State Students

Texas State is a great choice, and I could never recommend anywhere else. Everybody lends a helping hand. No matter where you are or what you are doing, faculty and staff alike will be there for you. This place is awesome. It feels like home, and I am happy to be here.
