Bobcat Pause

Regretfully, the 2020 Bobcat Pause Memorial Service has been cancelled in accordance with the university's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information, please visit the university's dedicated Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage.

Bobcat Pause Memorial Service

Bobcat Pause is an annual event that honors members of the campus community who have recently passed away. The event is hosted by Student Foundation and the Dean of Students Office, and provides the Texas State University community an opportunity to remember our Bobcat family.
