dc.description.abstractThe American college town is a unique place. The symbiotic relationship between the university and its host city is sometimes conflictive, sometimes cooperative. Physical expansion of the campus is an inevitable by-product of the growth of higher education, and often the responsibility to accommodate that growth falls upon the host city. Cities and universities continually draft master plans in efforts to optimize their growth while sharing and preserving limited resources. It is the goal of this researcher to present an historical, geographic view of the City of San Marcos and Texas State University-San Marcos to determine if understanding how these places developed in the past is useful in planning how they should develop in the future.en_US
