Texas State University was founded in 1899 and opened its campus in 1903. With more than 38,000 students enrolled in the university there are 400 student organizations on campus. Among those organizations you can find HBSA the Hispanic Business Student Association. The Texas State chapter of the Hispanic Business Student Association was founded in 1994 by a small group of Texas State students along with Dr. Cecilia Temponi. To this date, the organization has over sixty members and has been recognized at the local and national level. Our mission as students of Texas State University, in order to serve as a center for the procurement of knowledge, is to foster communication with the McCoy College of Business Administration.
