Dr. Melissa MahanWelcome to the Division of Student Affairs

On behalf of the administration and faculty, it is the pleasure of Student Affairs to welcome you to Texas A&M University-San Antonio. What an exciting time to be a Jaguar!! You are a pioneer in the development of a world class university. All around campus you can feel the excitement as we work together to build academic programs, traditions, pride and spirit.

We have a rich heritage in South San Antonio, and being a member of this community is one that carries a sense of prestige and honor. All Jaguars value integrity, leadership, inclusion, trust, respect, and responsibility.  We celebrate and advocate the differences in culture, history and thought that each individual brings to the university community.

In the A&M-SA Student Handbook, you will find a selection of information that we believe will help you to better acclimate to our community. Texas A&M University-San Antonio provides a variety of opportunities that are designed to help you throughout your time on campus. The services and programs outlined in the Student Handbook will help you accomplish the goals you have set for yourself. Take a few minutes to learn about these programs and services. Our faculty and staff are here to help you and are committed to your success.

We know your focus is in attaining academic success and completing your degree. We are here to assist you. Take advantage of our student-centered support services, including services for students with disabilities, career development services, advising, tutoring, and more.  The Division of Student Affairs is not only interested in your academic success, also in your social and professional development. We believe the student is our first priority. We encourage you to become involved on campus. Get involved in one of our student organizations or start a new group on campus. Spend time getting to know your faculty and the staff members around campus. Meet other students and build a support network. Take advantage of workshops, lectures and presentations offered outside of the classroom. All these opportunities will enhance your experience here at Texas A&M University-San Antonio and will make your time here richer. For a complete list of campus events go to our Jaguar Community for students.

We truly are glad that you have chosen to pursue your higher education at Texas A&M University-San Antonio, and we wish you the very best. Please feel free to contact me at melissa.mahan@tamusa.tamus.edu or stop by my office in the Madla building, Room 312.
