Historical note

Texas State University was established by the 26th Legislature in 1899 as the Southwest Texas State Normal School; 313 pupils were enrolled in 1903-04, the first year classes were held. The school name changed to Southwest Texas State Normal College in 1918, to Southwest Texas State Teachers College in 1925, to Southwest Texas State College in 1959, to Southwest Texas State University in 1969, to Texas State University-San Marcos in 2003, and to Texas State University in 2013.

The student government represents the student body. Starting in the 1961-1962 academic school year, the student government was called the Associated Students and was composed of three branches, the Student Senate, the Student Court, and the Executive Council. In the 1980-1981 academic school year, the student government was consolidated into one central unicameral governing body, calling it the Associated Student Government (ASG).
