About Bobcat Build
Bobcat Build was started in 2003 as a way to say “Thank You” to the San Marcos community. It has now turned into a Texas State University tradition and serves as the largest service project on campus. It is also one of the largest, one-day community service projects in the state of Texas. The name itself symbolizes our goal of strengthening the bond between Texas State University and the community of San Marcos. Every spring semester, students volunteer their time to complete various service projects throughout the community such as landscaping, painting, or clean-ups at residents’ homes, local schools, parks, churches, and neighborhoods. Over the past years, the event has grown in participation from approximately 700 volunteers at 50 jobsites to nearly 4,500 volunteers at over 300 jobsites within the San Marcos community!
