Bobcat Bounty

Bobcat Bounty is the first student-run, on-campus food pantry at Texas State University. It is run by students under the direction of faculty from the Food Security Learning Community in the Nutrition & Foods Program.

The majority of the food comes from the Hays County Food Bank. This partnership has allowed for the creation of a grocery store style experience for participants. Students can go in and select the foods they would like from, which helps create autonomy and reduce food waste. 

The College of Education has two food cupboard locations available on the 3rd Floor of the Education Building near the elevators and on the 1st floor of Jowers Center in the student lounge.

Career Closet

The TXST Career Closet provides a way for students to access attire for attending events such as career fairs, interviews, networking events, and other career-related needs. 

In the closet, students can find items such as suits, blazers, dress pants, skirts, ties, blouses, and button-down shirts.

Open Closet

Open Closet is a free and inclusive thrift market for all Texas State University Bobcats to attend. The purpose of Open Closet is to provide a safe space for folks of all gender identities to freely look through & find clothing that best matches their authentic selves. While at the same time, diverting textiles from landfills in efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and to support the circular economy.
