College Knowledge Middle School Visits

Texas State University Office of Community Relations annually hosts local middle schools on campus for a full day of higher education awareness.This is a part of the “College for Texans” statewide campaign launched in the fall of 2002 by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is an effort to send more Texans to college.

The campaign aims, by 2015, to enroll another 300,000 academically prepared students – beyond the 200,000 enrollment growth projected based on current trends – in Texas universities, community colleges, and technical colleges.

Since this initiative began in November 2002, the Office of Community Relations at Texas State University has hosted ‘College Knowledge Tours’ to over 25,000 area students.
