What is Bobcats Back?
Welcome home, Bobcats! Bobcats Back is Texas State University's official weeks of welcome initiative designed to welcome new and returning students back to campus as we begin each semester. For 2.5 weeks in the fall and one week in the spring, the campus community comes together to host programs that provide the following for our students:
- An opportunity for students to build community with their peers and the university at large.
- A diverse set of programs and activities that meet the needs and interests of various students.
- An awareness of the services and opportunities available to students on campus and in the community.
- An introduction to the pride and traditions of Texas State University.
Bobcats Back events are hosted by students organizations, various departments on campus, and community organizations. See the calendar below to stay on top of all of the fun events and opportunities available to you!
Texas State University offices and departments are encouraged to host events during Bobcats Back and be featured on our centralized calendar below. To have your event included for Spring 2022, please select the "Submit Event" button below and submit details by January 21, 2022 at 5:00pm. We encourage you to utilize university guidance while planning your event to keep our Bobcats as safe as possible. Some recommendations from Student Involvement include hosting programs virtually, incorporating pass-by programs, utilizing large and/or outdoor spaces that allow for space between individuals, and reducing the amount of time that individuals are encouraged to be together in the same space.
