Former Psychology Building will house new departments


Paint has been scraped from the walls, sawdust coats the floors and pipes hang exposed from the ceiling — the former Psychology Building has been gutted to make way for new departments.

The Psychology Building, now known as the Comal Building, currently stands vacant, but it will soon be the new home to two departments once renovations are complete. The Psychology Department was relocated to the Undergraduate Academic Center, and the building’s name has been altered to reflect the change. Nancy Nusbaum, Finance and Support Services associate vice president, said the facility will house the computer science and philosophy departments.

Apartment complexes spring up around city


New apartment complexes are being built for student residents as more Bobcats come to Texas State each year. Four new housing complexes have been improved for student living and will be open in May and August. Students will have some new living options as a result for next fall, but there are environmental and transportation issues that could arise from construction.

The Avenue

Located off River Ridge Parkway, the complex consists of one- to five-bedroom flats and townhomes, with 752 beds total. Construction is underway, and by May 9 residents will be able to move in.
