Student Volunteer Connection Meetings
Two Student Volunteer Connection Meetings are held every month. During these meetings, students will learn about the month's social issue and build community with fellow Bobcats.
Ask Student Volunteer Connection
At this come-and-go event, students can meet our officers, engage in conversation about the month's social issue and learn about upcoming events hosted by Student Volunteer Connection. This event is held two times a month either in Bobcat Trail, the Quad, or the LBJ Mall.
Serve with Student Volunteer Connection
Students will participate in direct service with a community partner in here in San Marcos or surrounding areas. This event is hosted two times per month.
Each Student Volunteer Connection Sunday Post focuses on bringing awareness to the many complexities of our monthly social issues. Check out our Instagram @txst_svc for more information!
