    Texas State University was established in 1899 as the Southwest Texas State Normal School to instruct students to become teachers. One of the most famous students here was Lyndon B. Johnson who would later become the President of the United States. Texas State University has several nice older buildings of historical and/or architectural interest including the "old main" administrative building. Texas State University is home to the Witltiff Collections, a nice collection of material relating to writers and photographers specializing in the Southwest. The displays is located in the Alkek Library on the campus and is FREE. Also of interest to those who enjoy the macabre the Forensics Anthropology Center at Texas State is one of four body farms in the country and the largest forensics research facility in the world (sorry, no pics).
