What is a Bobcat Preview Namesake?
Every Fall semester the Bobcat Preview team kicks off it's annual Namesake Nomination Drive in November! This is an opportunity for students to nominate faculty and staff to be honored for their incredible commitment to Texas State University! Bobcat Preview hits the Quad and LBJ Student Center lobby for a week to encourage students to come out and nominate a faculty or staff member who positively impacts the experiences of students! Then during the Spring, the Leadership Team selects 7 finalists to be honored as Namesakes. During the Bobcat Preview program, staff and students are split into 7 groups or "Dens" that bear the name of their namesake. Namesakes are also recognized and honored at New Student Convocation in front of the entire incoming freshmen class and the President's Cabinet.
*There is a Spring Bobcat Preview Namesake but this person is selected by the Bobcat Preview Steering Committee
How do I nominate someone to be a Namesake?
Nominations are collected during the Fall Semester. This year's nomination process has closed. We will announce our 2018 namesakes during the Spring semester!
