Past Graduate Assistants and their testimonies:
Outdoor Recreation Graduate Assistant 2017-2019
I was welcomed into the Campus Recreation Department in the summer of 2017 as the Graduate Assistant overseeing the Trips Program and Outdoor Rental Center. While I had grown up in central Texas, San Marcos was a new world to me. The 72 degree San Marcos River was like nothing I had ever experienced before, and having an office right on it’s banks was more than I could have asked for. Through my two years I had the opportunity to network and collaborate with multiple departments and individuals in the Texas State University system. These collaborations helped to put on events ranging from Riverfest in Sewell Park, to Canoeing Santa Elena Canyon for spring break. Needless to say, this job took me to some places that I never knew existed, and I can say I am a better person for it.
Working as a Graduate Assistant for the Outdoor Program at Texas State is in my opinion the best job in the university system. Not only was I able to recreate inline with my work, but I was also allowed an informative and inviting environment to hone my administrative skills. The support of professional staff across all of the program areas in Campus Recreation has provided me with a more comprehensive understanding of what it is to work in campus recreation at a professional level. I can gladly say that I now have a strong network of individuals to lean on as I continue on in my professional endeavors, wherever they may take me.
