The Texas State University Alumni Association created the Bobcat Gold Book in 2011, as a way for students to tell and share their Texas State story.

By completing items in Gold Book, students can win prizes ranging from a t-shirt to a class ring. Student, Parent and Young Alumni Engagement Coordinator, Elisa DeFord, says the Gold Book was created to enhance Bobcat traditions.

“We want students to be proud Bobcats. We want them to know about Texas State history, to know about our traditions, and just really be excited to be a Bobcat.”

In order to win prizes, students must complete activities listed in the book and provide proof, usually in the form of pictures. Deford explains the more activities that are completed, the grander the winnings can be.

“For the first 10 pictures that a student takes, they’ll get a free Texas State pennant; for 20 pictures, a student gets a free t-shirt; 30 pictures they get a free, really nice, water bottle; and then the grand prize, which is for 50 pictures, is being entered into a drawing for a free class ring or a free diploma frame.”

As awareness about the book grows, so does the participation. The Alumni Association reports increases in student involvement each year, but always welcomes more students to join the program.

To get your own Bobcat Gold Book, visit the Alumni Association office in the J.C. Kellam building, room 380.
