To me a learning community is your family on campus. They are likely to be some of the people you are most comfortable with, the ones you can go to with questions about a class or just needed someone to listen to you practice a speech, but most importantly they give you that sense of home and belonging.
Having familiar faces in the classroom, especially during the first few weeks, was very comforting and in time became extremely helpful. It has been nice knowing that I am surrounded by dependable people who can help me with class material if I so need it.
Out of Class Events
The Terry Scholars enjoy a wide variety of activities including game nights, community service (canned food drives, volunteering at the Salvation Army, Bobcat Build, Adopt-A-Garden), presentations from Terry alumni, intramural sports, camping trips, the GOAL course at University Camp, various speakers, and weekly study groups.
Every year the freshmen Terry Scholars attend the Terry Banquet (for all Terry Scholars attending Texas State) and they participate in a state-wide Terry Scholars community service event (with all Terry Scholars in the state of Texas).
