TXST is a home away from home for many of the students that attend the university. MY TXST MY HOME: A Cleaner Campus Starts Here was created to foster a sense of pride and ownership among the students of TXST. As TXST Bobcats, it is each of our responsibility to show our care and pride for our campus. We can each do this by ensuring our trash goes in the trash or recycling bin and picking up litter we find around campus. Taking care or our campus and community starts here.
