Maria’s Thoughts on Texas State


Why Texas State

I chose Texas State because it has a very diverse group of students and staff, but at the same time, you can walk across campus and easily recognize people. When I came to visit, I noticed how people were grouped together having normal conversations, and I immediately felt this was a place I could call my second home.

Why Mathematics

After college, I plan to attend medical school and become a gynecologist. I also intend to join the Peace Corps for a couple of years and travel to third-world countries to share my knowledge in medicine.

Favorite Professor

Without a doubt, Dr. Daniela Ferrero has the best style of teaching math! I have the utmost respect for her because she is very encouraging and genuinely cares about her students excelling in all their classes. I had the privilege of taking her for Calculus I and Intro to Graph Theory.

My Clubs and Organizations

Associated Student Government, Student Foundation, PAWS Preview, Residence Hall Association, Phi Eta Sigma

Benefits of Membership

Because most of my organizations require a certain grade-point average, being involved has helped me focus in my classes and maintain good grades. Also, it helps to know students, staff, faculty and administration that share the same passion, interest and goals as you do.

Best Campus Hangout

I usually go to Boko’s Lounge at the LBJ Student Center to relax between classes. They have sofas and chairs, TV, computers, and they are close to Chick-fil-A, Blimpie and Starbucks.

What I Like Most About Texas State

I love the fact that Texas State offers more than 300 student organizations, and our administration works hand-in-hand with the students to help make our Texas State experience the best ever.

What I Tell Future Texas State Students

The Bobcats take pride in our staff, faculty and administration because they provide the friendliest, most helpful, motivating and caring environment that I have ever experienced!
