Rocio Benavides Bio


All great journeys start with a first step. At this University, we hold true to our mission to encourage academic excellence at the highest level, and to advance each student’s individual promise. I encourage you to find out for yourself what we can provide for you and your future. Working with future Javelinas gives me so much pleasure, and knowing that Texas A&M University-Kingsville is the right place for them, makes me even happier. I look forward to the opportunity to personally speak with you about your hopes and dreams, and to answer any questions about our superior programs, and talented faculty.
