When the Texas State University Football team put the Florida State Seminoles on their schedule, everyone knew that this was a move by the Texas State Athletic Department to put Texas State Athletics on the map. Traveling to Tallahassee for a football game wasn’t just beneficial to the Athletic Department, but to the University.

Texas State University President Denise Trauth traveled to Tallahassee to represent and watch, what was considered one of the biggest games in Texas State sports history.

In between meetings, President Trauth was able to sit down and have a brief conversation about Texas State Football, the Athletic department’s goals, as well as some issues important to every Texas State student.

Trauth described her experience in Tallahassee and what the she was treated to in Florida.

When asked about the benefits of playing a team of Florida State’s popularity, Trauth said the weather delay only gave Texas State more time in the limelight.

President Trauth describes this season’s goal for the athletic department, and how Texas State Bobcat Football fans can help.

Although the game against Florida State was big for Texas State, President Trauth also handles administrative duties for the University.

The controversial Campus Carry bill was signed into law in July by Governor Greg Abbott. President Trauth explains how Texas State University will prepare for this law to take effect.
