The MTP event is absolutely the best opportunity for you to register for Honors courses. The Honors College engages in a course lottery process every fall and spring semester, which allows students to request the top three courses of their choice for registration in the following term.

At this come-and-go, browse-style event, Honors students engage with professors teaching future Honors courses. You can find a list of courses offered for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 on the Honors College website.

Students must sign up for an account with ForagerOne using their TXST email address in order to access the event.

Official Common Experience Exhibition
 
Exploring what photography historian George Baker has referred to as “photography’s expanded field,” Modern Societies I operates in the liminal format of a moving still image — a play on the genre of still life or nature morte. The video work marks a departure from a technique that Esther Choi began exploring nearly fifteen years ago, wherein the artist photographed “post-natural materials” using medium and large format cameras, and then pieced the photographs together by digitally weaving them to create a pictorial surface of continuous landscapes.

Choi’s Modern Societies I is an allegory of a moment: created out of a sense of limbo during the pandemic, the piece incorporates sculpture and photography as methods of description intended to mirror the indeterminacy of a contemporary state of being, between entropy, ruin, fecundity, and new life.

This art exhibition is on view from January 19 to April 11, 2021.

Official Common Experience Exhibition
 
Natural and artificial. Physical and virtual. Imagined and real. Private and public. Speaker and receiver. Thinking in terms of binary oppositions, though common, seems distinctly unnatural to human behavior, which is more dynamic than static or fixed.
 
States of Flux visualizes how these dichotomies are increasingly being blurred and dismantled in the work of four artists: Daniel Gray, Sarah Knobel, Jonathan McFadden, and Bobby Scheidemann, all of whom are graduates of the School of Art and Design at Texas State University. Together their works tackle the tension between such oppositions, and represent the spectrum of intermittent rhythms between them.
 
States of Flux is curated by Caroline Frost, a senior art history student at Texas State University and Summer 2019 Texas State Galleries Intern.

This event will provide an opportunity for stakeholders working on mental health issues to discuss coping and other helping mechanisms. Panel participants include representatives from the Office of Disability Services, the Student Health Center, the Counseling Center, the Department of History, the School of Social Work and the Department of Counseling, Leadership, Adult Education, and School Psychology (CLAS). The discussion will center on social justice, the current political climate, and the COVID-19 pandemic. Through communication of experience and skills we can lay a foundation for all to weather this new normal.

As members of a diverse and inclusive educational community, we aim to preserve and promote a pattern of health and wellness, both mental and physical, through healthy and robust dialogue. By contemplating the driving forces that affect mental health, we aim to make sense of this unique era we are living in and give students the platform to orient themselves in a rapidly changing college experience.

If you require accommodations due to a disability, please contact the Office of Disability Services at (512) 245-3451 or ods@txstate.edu at least 72 hours prior to the start of the event.

States of Flux visualizes how these dichotomies are increasingly being blurred and dismantled in the work of four artists: Daniel Gray, Sarah Knobel, Jonathan McFadden, and Bobby Scheidemann, all of whom are graduates of the School of Art and Design at Texas State University. Together their works tackle the tension between such oppositions, and represent the spectrum of intermittent rhythms between them.
 
States of Flux is curated by Caroline Frost, a senior art history student at Texas State University and Summer 2019 Texas State Galleries Intern.
 
This art exhibition is on view from January 19 to April 11, 2021.
