Student Spotlight

Jacob Cleveland

Jacob is a Psychology major from Schertz, Texas

How did the LLC help you transition from your hometown to Texas State? The LLC encouraged me to get myself out there through a number of group activities that helped me to connect with a fantastic group of people from all over, with career goals similar to mine.

 

How has the LLC helped you academically? The LLC co-enrolls me in classes with my peers as well as regularly hosts group study sessions

 

Who is your favorite professor and why? I've had a wide variety of fantastic professors these first two semesters, it's hard to pick a favorite. If I had to give a top two, it would be Dr. Mendez and Ms. Burney. 

 

What is a fun fact about you? I host a podcast called The San Mo Show where my friends and I discuss events both local and national.

"My favorite things about working with undergraduates are getting to know them, having the opportunity to learn about current youth culture from them, and hopefully facilitating in small ways their personal and career-related growth."
