What Texas State Students are saying about engaging in a Service-Learning class:

"Being able to use concepts from class and work with a local business is an amazing experience.  It also helps in understanding a little of San Marcos's history." -CC

"Those four words, 'You had inspired me.' made all the stress and all the hard work I have been putting in worth it. That I could be someone that kids looked up to, and wanted to be like"- AC

"One patient's life was saved because of the referral our team of physicians, nurses, respiratory care, and clinical lab provided in the clinic. He had heart surgery within 3 days of our clinic. He had never been seen by a physician and would have died without our intervention." - BT

"It was cool to get actually DO what we're going to be doing in the field. I enjoyed working with my group on hands-on tasks that will actually help me in the real world. I was also really surprised that we're able to pull it off without any previous experience!"- DB
