Homecoming at Texas State is one of the university's longest-running annual traditions. Every fall during Homecoming Week, current Texas State students are joined on campus by thousands of faculty, staff, community members and alumni to commemorate the university’s rich traditions and to celebrate its future. The Homecoming festivities all culminate in a Saturday game at Bobcat Stadium, cheering our Bobcat Football team to victory.

Homecoming Royalty Awards

Gold Royalty are juniors and seniors voted for by the student body. Maroon Royalty are selected by each residence hall. Gaillardian Royalty are freshmen and sophomores voted for by their fellow students. The Gaillardian award was established in 1925 by the editors of the college's yearbook, The Pedagog, to honor outstanding and accomplished students. The name of the award was derived from the gaillardia, the official school flower.
