Environmental Service Committee

Nurtured by diversity, fortified by collaboration, and fostered by tradition, the Environmental Service Committee (ESC) at Texas State University empowers people to achieve their vision of a sustainable campus community by providing a platform through which environmentally centered projects can be funded. The ESC distributes funds collected from the Environmental Service Fee for improvements at the University and within greater San Marcos.

One of the most unique features of Texas State is Spring Lake. The community can never get enough, whether to take a dip into its offspring the San Marcos River or explore the environment under the surface.

Last summer the rec center took on a new project: change out over 160 traditional light bulbs for LED bulbs. It seems simple and a little tedious, but was huge step in an environmentally friendly direction.
