Dr. Arellano Headshot


Welcome to Texas State University, a vibrant community of scholars!

It is my pleasure and privilege to serve as your Dean of Students at Texas State University. Attending college is an exciting time in your life and I share your excitement. Meeting new people, developing friendships and expanding one’s knowledge are just a few of the positive aspects you will experience. You will find outstanding academic programs and also great opportunities to get involved out of the classroom with experiences that will compliment your learning.

My colleagues in the Dean of Students Office and I are committed to assisting you because we want you to develop a positive experience during your years at Texas State. Succeeding academically and participating in productive and meaningful activities outside the classroom are steps we want you to take. We hope you learn, get involved and make a difference while at our university.
