Arts & Culture

There's always more to explore when you visit Texas State. Love music and theatre? The show is about to start. Dance lifts your spirits? We’ll keep you stepping high. Want to immerse yourself in arts and history? We have too much to see it all. Let’s get into it!

Student Success

Graduation should only be one chapter in a student’s success story. Our goal is to make sure your student is prepared to add chapters on their career and life beyond the classroom. Explore the resources available to each student throughout their journey.

Health and Safety

Providing for student health and safety is always a top priority, and maintaining an open, informed, and empowered community is central to this goal. We have a variety of services, resources, and tools focused on keeping every member of our community safe.
