SVC at Bobcat Build 2021

About Bobcat Build

Bobcat Build was started in 2003 as a way to say “Thank You” to the San Marcos community.  It has now turned into a Texas State University tradition and serves as the largest service project on campus.  It is also one of the largest, one-day community service projects in the state of Texas. The name itself symbolizes our goal of strengthening the bond between Texas State University and the community of San Marcos. Every spring semester, students volunteer their time to complete various service projects throughout the community such as landscaping, painting, or clean-ups at residents’ homes, local schools, parks, churches, and neighborhoods. Over the past years, the event has grown in participation from approximately 700 volunteers at 50 jobsites to nearly 4,500 volunteers at over 300 jobsites within the San Marcos community! 


  • All volunteers will be required to wear face masks and nitrile disposable gloves, even if they are also utilizing Bobcat Build work gloves
  • There will be a maximum of 10 volunteers per jobsite
  • Volunteers are not allowed inside the resident's home except for emergencies
  • Water, extra masks, nitrile gloves, and hand sanitizer will be provided to each jobsite at their took pickup
  • If an individual has to take their mask off for any reason while around others, they should maintain 6 feet of distance
