Why Should I Join the Bobcat Bond Program?

Colleges and universities across the nation struggle every year with how to help new students adjust to the inevitable changes of higher education. At Texas State, we pair new students with Texas State upperclassmen, staff or faculty to ease the transition into the university and support the adjustments to change.   

Mentees benefit in many ways. By having a friend/mentor at Texas State, the stress of adjusting to campus is reduced. This is also directly related to higher retention of students at Texas State, and higher GPAs (as compared to their fellow non-mentored new students). If you have a problem with anything personal or academic, while your mentor may not have direct experience, they will know where to refer you so that you can get help and know that people on this campus can help.
