Have a little Salvation, or a lot. Alvin Ord’s is like no other sandwich shop, by design. And that has earned them Best Sandwich Shop in the San Marcos Stars poll.
The Salvation is their signature sandwich that boasts three cheeses toasted on a fresh bun with ham, salami and spiced luncheon meat. And there’s three sizes.
The small will satisfy, the medium will fill you to the top and the large is a meal for two hungry Bobcats. They also offer great classic sandwiches like the Reuben, Meatball and Turkey Club.
You can’t go wrong.
The décor looks like it stepped right out of the past, and you can spend hours reading the graffiti that has been left for decades.
Aside from allowing patrons to write on the walls, Alvin Ord’s prides itself on fresh ingredients and mouth-watering French bread, as well as a friendly staff and student-friendly prices.
The freedom to chew tobacco or light up on campus has been stomped out.
As of fall, Texas State will be a tobacco-free campus. The administration characterizes this as a step toward becoming a progressive, healthy university. In her announcement of the ban, University Presidentcited the harmful effects of smoking and second-hand smoke, and a survey of about 1,300 students that showed 67 percent in favor of a tobacco-free campus.
As the summer months take hold of San Marcos and campus life slows to a crawl, the class of 2015 will arrive in mass to cause a ruckus.
Freshmen and incoming transfer students alike are welcomed with open arms to our little slice of the Texas Hill Country. No one knew the humble Southwest Texas State Normal School would eventually become the sixth largest university in the state. New Bobcats have more than 100 years of history to live up to, and with a little bit of luck, four years to do so.
Another school year is coming to a close, which means the full impact of senioritis is coming to a head for some students. Everyone is feeling the stress of impending finals and the finality of another grade point average. Now is the time everyone should reflect on how lucky you are to be at Texas State.
