Welcome to the alumni family, May graduates!

Graduation Video - Play

We're filled with pride as we welcome thousands of Bobcats who graduated in May to the alumni family. There's a reason graduation ceremonies are called "commencements." They're a celebration of the start of something new; of a lifelong connection to Texas State University. We're excited to start that journey with these Bobcats and we hope you'll join us in welcoming them to the Alumni Association.
