Service Organizations on Campus

Service Organizations

Student Involvement @ LBJSC houses two Chartered Student Organizations (CSOs) dedicated to service-learning. These organizations provide opportunities for Bobcats to be involved with students who are passionate about serving the communities surrounding our university. 

Bobcat Build

Bobcat Build was started in 2002 as a way to say “Thank You” to the San Marcos community.  It has now turned into a Texas State University tradition and serves as the largest service project on campus.  It is also one of the largest, one-day community service projects in the state of Texas. Every spring, students volunteer their time to complete various service projects throughout the community such as landscaping, painting, or clean-ups at residents’ homes, local schools, parks, churches, and neighborhoods. Since 2002, the event has grown in participation from approximately 700 volunteers at 50 job sites to nearly 4,500 volunteers at over 300 job sites within the San Marcos community!
