College Knowledge Middle School Visits

That’s the message of the new “College for Texans” statewide campaign launched in the fall of 2002 by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board in an aggressive new 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 Awareness Tours’ to 10,000 area students.

The Office of Community Relations focuses on touring middle school students from San Marcos CISD. Other schools or groups interested in visiting Texas State can request a tour through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions Campus Tours page.
