Survey shows Texas State ahead of others in post-graduation opportunities

Recent studies indicate Bobcats are finding jobs more frequently than their competitors.

The Institutional Research Office at Texas State conducts a survey every summer of alumni who graduated the previous year to collect information on employment status and other activities. About 68 percent of students who responded were employed full time at the date of the survey. Approximately 51 percent of those students had found a job before graduation.

ROTC cadets prepare for training course

Michelle Packer often wakes up at 5:30 a.m. to exercise. Receiving leadership, land navigation and field training are typical parts of the rest of her day.

On top of being a student, Packer is preparing for a test that will determine if she has the potential to become an officer in the U.S. Army.

Packer, criminal justice junior, is one of the Texas State ROTC students gearing up for the Leader Development and Assessment Course held every summer. The majority of the first three years cadets spend in ROTC programs are spent preparing and training for the course. It trains cadets to Army standards, develops leadership skills and determines their officer potential.
