Last Saturday, on Oct. 7, Texas State University celebrated the first Bobcat Day of the semester. Bobcat Day is an event created by Undergraduate Admissions for potential Bobcats to explore the campus and gain a greater understanding of what being a student at TXST is all about.
“Bobcat Day is a chance to really envision themselves here,” Assistant Directors for Admissions, David Thomas said. “You know, it’s the chance to see a little bit more than they could on a normal visit or a normal day.”
Many students attend this event in hopes of having any questions answered. Bobcat Day provides faculty and staff on standby, ready to help any confused students.
“It [the amount of people] goes anywhere from seven to 800 all the way up to 2000, It [the amount of people] just depends,” Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management and Director of Undergraduate Admissions, Dr. Beverly Woodson Day.
Everyone is welcome to attend these events, with members of the admissions office inviting students in with open arms and smiling faces. This also helps students see what Texas State has to offer, and why the university can possibly be the next place they call home.
“Ultimately all we want is to help you and we want to help calm those nerves you might have about going to college and about this process,” Thomas said. “Our goal is to support you and to help you be as successful as you possibly can, and this is just the first step of many to being successful here as a Bobcat.”
According to the Undergraduate Admissions website, other opportunities for students during Bobcat Day include:
“If they’re looking for a place to call home, Texas State is the place for them. We are a friendly, diverse, very engaged campus, and we want students that would love to be here at Texas State,” Day said.
The next Bobcat Day is Saturday, Nov. 4. To find out more information, click here.
