College Junior

Transportation: Since this will be my first semester, I cannot comment on the transportation really. There is a lot of construction going on around campus and that makes driving inconvenient, but I have heard the busses are very reliable so that is what I will be using. Plus I can't afford the parking passes!

5 College Junior

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid, but I did not qualify due to my parents income. The process went very smoothy, though, and everyone I worked with was very helpful and nice.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally feel very safe on Campus.

Local Atmosphere: Very nice little town with cute coffee shops and good pizza.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: All students are very respectful with each other.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't think the Greek life affect the social atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They seem to be everywhere and they all look the same, which leads me to believe that you have to be a certain kind of person and look a certain kind of way to be able to join the Greek life.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Nice places, but the staff of dorms can be a bit more professional.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The restaurants in the area are very nice.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Bobcat Bobbie service is nice but more than once when I called they were no available which is very unprofessional and dangerous.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Every professor is different and every class is different. No one expects the impossible; the classes are very challenging but helpful and will leave you very well educated. The workload depends on the class, but it tends to be a lot.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Just from walking throughout the campus and observing the people here it is easy to see that there is the perfect amount of diversity here.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: From what I hear over social networking sites and my peers, there are a lot of parties to attend, and they tend to be fun. People have a good time, although I am not speaking from first hand experience because I have never gone.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The 2375 Social Work class does require an internship which I think is very great and useful.. The classes are challenging yet very interesting and fun.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have not taken my internship course as of yet. That will be this upcoming fall semester (2014)

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Everyone has to pay for the buses, which is not totally fair if you will never use it. Although the buses are convenient and arrive on time and very quickly.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Compared to Houston where I am from, I love the weather. The school does cancel classes when the roads are icey.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love being a bobcat and I love the resources that Texas State provides its students. It really is the perfect college.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Texas State is such a friendly, open, accepting university. It's not a super huge college, so the people aren't stuck-up or cocky like you might find at bigger universities. It's very relaxed on campus, and there's a very chill atmosphere surrounding the city of San Marcos, as well. You can feel at home at Texas State, and you'll be surprised to find how easy it is to make friends.

Texas State is superb in making sure its students are offered the opportunities they need to gain skills that will make them the most competitive in their field. Being a smaller university makes it even easier for academic advisers and professors to take the extra time to talk to students one-on-one about their future career paths. The professors and advisers are always eager to help.
