Old Main, the original building on campus

Bryan is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of History at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.  San Marcos is the fastest growing city in the United States, according to the US Census Bureau, and this rapid expansion is also reflected at the University.  Texas State University currently boasts over 37,000 students and was recently named an Emerging Research Institution.  Located in the Texas Hill Country, Texas State’s campus is rare amongst schools in the state in that it is not as flat as a pancake.  Texas State’s hallmark building is Old Main, which was completed in 1903.  Texas State is also the only university in Texas to claim a United States President as graduate: Lyndon B. Johnson, Class of 1930.
