"Becoming a student leader my Junior year has helped my college experience in such a positive way. Getting involved with the organizations that I am also passionate about opened doors to bigger and greater experiences here at Texas State. I am truly thankful for those who gave me a chance or saw something in me that I did not see myself."

"Harvey Mackay once said that “A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline”, leadership is the same way. Texas State has been a wonderful leadership learning lab where I have gathered the skills and knowledge to help enhance Texas State  and the community around me. With a clear goal and solid planning anything is possible!"

"Getting involved has completely changed my college experience! I have met so many of my reall good friends through my organizations! It is literally the easiest way to meet people. Getting involved has also given me real experience that I can use in my future interviews and career.  Being involved has clearly shown me what I enjoy doing and exactly what I aspire to be! I LOVE WHAT I DO!!!! :)"

" Through my involvement in Texas State, I have had the privilege to meet wonderful people, several of who I now consider to be some of my closest friends.  Given the close environment of our university, I am sure many can relate to that statement.  Over the last few years, I have seen my growth as a leader, but most importantly, I have met my real self.  The opportunities I have received just by being involved are priceless and I could not be more grateful for what this great institution has offered me.  What I have learned and will take on through my future endeavors is not what I learned in a classroom and lectures, but rather what I experienced while working as a team with my peers in all the great organizations I have been a part of.  I love Texas State and I love student organizations."
