Mentor program, via Bobcat Bond

New students are paired with Texas State upperclassmen, staff or faculty to ease the transition into the university and support the adjustments to change. Research shows that students who receive mentoring are more likely to stay in college and graduate. We at Bobcat Bond believe that mentors truly do contribute to the success of students and we encourage all students to seek out a mentor.

Support for traditionally underrepresented students, via TRiO Programs

TRiO Programs (TRIO) are Federal outreach and student services programs designed to identify and provide services for traditionally underrepresented students (first-generation college students, students who meet low income guidelines, and students with disabilities). Services are free to those who qualify and are accepted into the programs. Learn more about all TRiO programs.

The existence of TRiO Programs is owed to the passing of The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson at Texas State University. The HEA made a college education attainable for thousands of lower- and middle-income students; this legislation is central to the legacies of our institution, Texas and the United States.
