“Start Here,” the summer 2015 issue of Hillviews, is now available in print and digital format. The free app can be downloaded on smartphones, tablets or e-readers.

The digital edition is available for free at

The focus of the issue is on the McCoy College of Business Administration – from the many student clubs (19) that promote businesses to the 3-Day Startup program for budding entrepreneurs, from internships that lead to careers to a sales job that resulted in a new industry. Graduates of the college include those in finance, management, marketing, accounting and computer information systems.

Business isn’t the only topic in the pages of Hillviews. The summer issue also includes a story about University Camp, a getaway on the Blanco River; profile of four Bobcats heading to the NFL; a Q&A with two new department chairs, Mark Holtz and Valarie Fleming; meet Lizzie Velasquez, a former Texas State student who is the subject of a documentary film that was a big hit at SXSW; and get to know Johnny Almaraz, an alumnus who pitched for the Bobcats now working for the Phillies.  

Hillviews, published three times a year, is distributed to members of the Alumni Association and the Family Association. The digital edition ― with extra content ― is available free to everyone.
