Ventura Acosta

Born and raised and in the beautiful Texas Hill Country, Ventura Acosta is loyal to her Texas roots. She began working at this great university in August of 1988, when it was then named Southwest Texas State University. Ventura has seen so much change in her tenure here, and says she has “the best job” because of the opportunity to mentor young adults and also be mentored by them in return. Ventura has truly created some life-long relationships at Texas State, and says these friendships make her a RICH WOMAN.


In her time away from the office, Ventura loves to spend her time with her kids, grandkids and family who are her heart. She also loves to craft, and is beginning to travel more, visiting casinos to play a little blackjack. She loves the saying, “The voice of Truth says “Do not be afraid”. The Student Recreation Center is lucky to have her on their team.
