Welcome to Bobcat Country!

Finding your place, making friends and connecting academically and socially to campus are a few of the keys to your success as a Texas State Bobcat. Through programs and resources, we aim to provide an inviting environment and supportive network for students that are living off campus during their first year. We attempt to ensure you remain as connected to the university as if you lived on campus.

Interested in becoming a Peer Mentor?

If you benefitted from a mentoring relationship as a first-year commuter student, consider applying. PACE is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year. Peer mentors are upperclassmen who are placed in US1100 classes and provide in and out of classroom support to help students academically and socially transition to Texas State.

For more information, visit the application website.
