“Names submitted must be distinguished Hispanic, Latino or Black alumni who have made significant contributions to the university.”
The submissions have to meet certain racial criteria but the whole effort is being described as an act of diversity and inclusion.

Texas State University brings diversity to the forefront as it accepts name submissions for residence halls
Texas State University is bringing diversity and inclusion to the forefront as it accepts submissions to rename the Angelina and San Gabriel residence halls at the school’s San Marcus campus. Two unnamed streets at Texas State’s Round Rock campus will also be named during this process.
Names submitted must be distinguished Hispanic, Latino or Black alumni who have made significant contributions to the university. The university created a naming task force co-chaired by Professor Gloria Martinez and Associate Professor Scott Bowman.
“The university has been tremendously diverse for a long time now,” Bowman said. “We’re really putting forth a concerted effort to make sure that everyone feels welcome, everyone feels honored and that they have a good lasting experience at Texas State. So, this is just a part of that process. “
