Graduates Making a Difference

Texas State University System institutions provide the knowledge and inspiration students need to excel in their careers. Country music legend George Strait, honored as the Academy of Country Music's 2014 Entertainer of the Year, graduated from Southwest Texas State University (now Texas State University) with a bachelor's degree in agriculture.

Research with Relevance

Throughout the Texas State University System, faculty and students are engaged in meaningful, relevant research that expands knowledge for the benefit of Texas and its people. Researchers at Sam Houston State University are engaged in the gruesome but necessary study of human decomposition to help investigators better determine the time of death in murder cases.

An Investment

Lamar Institute of Technology last month received a $100,000 gift from the Valero Corporation. The donation will support scholarships for students in welding technology, process operating technology, instrumentation technology, industrial mechanics, computer drafting technology and occupational safety and health technology.
