Texas State University
Transcript of Texas State University
Texas State University is located in San Marcos, Texas.
Their Mascot is the BOBCAT.
Texas State's school colors are maroon and metallic gold, inspired from our school flower — the native wildflower gaillardia. The flower is sometimes referred to as an "Indian Blanket" or "Mexican Blanket."
The Bobcat has been the mascot of Texas State University since 1921. His name is Boko.
The Heart of Texas State Hand Sign is made by holding up your left hand in the shape of the state of Texas with your ring and little fingers pointing down toward the middle of the palm, indicating the location of the university.
The Eat 'Em Up, Cats Hand Sign is made by holding up your right hand in the shape of Bobcat paw while yelling "Eat 'em up, Cats!"

About Texas State...
Authorized by the Texas Legislature in 1899, Southwest Texas State Normal School opened its doors in 1903. Over the years, the Legislature broadened the institution's scope and changed its name, in succession, to Normal College, Teachers College, College, Southwest Texas State University, and in 2003 to Texas State University-San Marcos. Each name reflects the university's growth from a small teacher preparation institution to a major, multipurpose university. Texas State's original mission was to prepare Texas public school teachers. It became renowned for carrying out this mission, but today it does far more.
