Last Friday Texas State University received a gift from the University Federal Credit Union for $625,000 to help support scholarships and programs on campus.

40% of UFCU gifts will go straight to student scholarships. This will help relieve some financial stress that students have about paying for college and will allow campus organizations and programs to grow and provide resources and activities that enrich campus life.

Student Government met at 7 p.m. today to discuss the future of its involvement with the expansion of LBJ and to possibly increase their role in the process.
