Sarah's Thoughts on Texas State

Why Texas State

It has a great location and a beautiful campus. I had a good feeling when I came to visit.

Why Marketing?

For years, my family told me that I should major in marketing. I like understanding the way consumers behave and finding out how best to make them happy.

Favorite Professor

It’s hard to pick a favorite professor because I have been lucky enough to have many amazing professors who have helped my college education in many different ways. I think it’s a tie between Dr. Vance Lesseig, finance, and Dr. Eric Kirby, management. They both are very skilled at explaining difficult topics in terms students can relate to. They keep the class atmosphere interesting, interactive and entertaining while you learn. Also, they were always willing to help even when the topic didn’t pertain to their classes.

Most Valuable Learning Experience at Texas State

I have learned that it is very beneficial to get to know your professors and show them your commitment to succeeding in their classes. When professors remember your name and see how hard you work, they want to help you succeed.

Best Studying Advice

Try different study techniques until you find what’s right for you. I learned that finding a quiet place, putting ideas into my own terms, hand-writing notes and creating acronyms helps me. One of the best things to help you study can be what you get from class; the real-life examples professors give are the easiest way to relate and remember topics.

Why I am Involved at Texas State

Joining a sorority as a freshman gave me a sense of belonging and helped me meet many of my closest friends. My business organizations have given me an opportunity to apply what I have learned in class and become closer to the professors who oversee them. All of my organizations have taught me valuable leadership and teamwork skills.
