Justin's Thoughts on Texas State
Why I Major in Agriculture
I was raised in an agricultural background and have come to see how it plays a pivotal role in our daily lives. My major gives me the chance to work at what I love. I was attracted to the Department of Agriculture
because of the smaller classes and the chance to make connections with the professors.
Most Valuable Learning Experience at Texas State
I have become very involved in student organizations in my department, held a departmental job, and remained focused on my schoolwork. I quickly learned that procrastination would not work if I wanted to accomplish all of my goals. By prioritizing tasks, writing out my schedule and remembering deadlines I have been able to fulfill my responsibilities.
Best Studying Advice
I find it best to be in a quiet place with a lot of space to work to study for exams. By organizing my notes into smaller sections, I am able to better focus on one topic of the exam material at a time and not let myself get overwhelmed.

What I Like Most About Texas State
The small class sizes in my department have allowed me to become friends with many fellow ag majors and even my professors. I also have enjoyed the natural beauty of Texas State’s campus, thanks to its location at the edge of the Texas Hill Country and on the San Marcos River.
What I Tell Future Texas State Students
Be prepared to walk the hills! Also, Texas State has many different degree programs that have small class sizes for more immediate attention. And Texas State offers students many opportunities for leadership in student organizations.
