2008-2009 Common Experience
Civic Responsibility and the Legacy of LBJ
The Common Experience is a year-long initiative of Texas State University-San Marcos designed to cultivate a common intellectual conversation across the campus, to enhance student participation in the intellectual life of the campus, and to foster a sense of community across our entire campus and extended community.
August 27, 2008, marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States and the most distinguished alumnus of Texas State. As part of the LBJ Centennial Celebration, the 2008-2009 Common Experience theme, "Civic Responsibility and the Legacy of LBJ," focuses on Johnson's devotion to public service and his contributions that continue to impact American society.
