4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: i have heard alot of my friends talk about their expieriences with financial aid and how poorly they went, but my expieriences have been great, there was only one time my freshmen year when i had any difficulties but other than that everything has gone smoothly

Off-Campus Housing: I live in an apt complex where the safety is really not as up to par so to say as i would like for it to be, the maintnance and appearance of my apts i do not feel are eual to what i pay for my apartment, i love having my own place and living off campus but the prices are outrageous

Transportation: I think that the fact that our universty provides transportation is awesome because the parking on our campus is HORRIBLE. and we cannot all fit on campus if we drove, and also due to the fact that parking passes are WAYYY too exspensive . the tram that picks up at myapartment complex is always prompt and on time, i have not haad any issues with it.

Off-Campus Dining: I loved being able to eat on campus and just swipe, now that i live off campus its like a pain to go get food, mostly because nothing is really healthy besides subway, but who wants to eat that all of the time ? No one, but i also do feel that there should be more placethat allow our student discounts, i mean we are inn a college town.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have changed my major SO MANY TIMES, and i feel that i am now just going to settle because time is running out.

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.
