Texas State University dealing with its own growth, announces huge music building


SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — Texas State University, on average, grows by about 1,000 students each year. The latest numbers have an enrollment of approximately 38,600 — with that sort of growth, the need for infrastructure to maintain it also grows.

“We are looking for a new STEM and Education Building here on campus, another health building in Round Rock and a new music building right here on the Texas State Campus,” said John Fleming, Dean of the College of Fine Arts and Communication. 

“Specifically music because we’ve really outgrown our facilities. Our current music building is a converted gymnasium and we have nationally ranked programs in music, and we’ve outgrown it so we need facilities that match the quality of the programs that we have here.”

Currently, there are not plans to break ground anytime soon. However, Fleming says there is work being done in the current state legislative session to allocate funding for these new buildings that are needed. 

Still, Fleming adds that private donor will be a key in making the buildings a reality.
