Campus Housing: Living at the dorms, you have everything right where you need it. That's especially nice for incoming freshmen who don't know there way around as well. There are also dining halls located right around all the dorms.

Greek Life: There are alot of Greeks on campus. Personally it is not a path I would take, but alot of my friends have taken it. The people in them are fun, sometimes. But it just depends on who you know. I like some of them, and some I don't. I all depends on the person.

Nightlife: I'm not 21 yet, so I can't fully grasp the nightlife scene besides parties at friends apartments or mine. But for people that are 21 its an A+.

Off-Campus Housing: At my apartment, as opposed to many of the other off-campus dwellings, there is always an abundance of parking. This is not the case everyhwere though.

Computers: Printing on Campus – I feel that the printing on campus is very convenient. The fact that one can print endless things on these computers makes life much easier. I wish there were more computer labs to use, though.

Health & Safety: Totally Safe – Texas State is relatively safe. There are always campus security officers driving around seeing if anyone needs a ride and the campus is lighted and safe to be around.

Parking: Parking is crowded and a lot of the parking lots have buses that will shuttle you to campus because they are really far away. Its a lot easier to just walk or take the bus from your apartment

Facilities: Student Life – The campus itself is really gorgeous and its built in a small, quaint town that pretty much caters to the university. The student body is like a family and we have a really nice rec center. The library over looks the entire town and there is so much to do outdoors... this is definitely a summer town

Weather: The weather here is good for most of the time. For any campus, if it's raining walking to class will be a drag. But I haven't had any serious trouble with the weather.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not in a frat. To me, it's like high school with all the drama and drinking. It's fine for people who are into it, and I know not all frat's are stereotypical, but there is a lot of that none the less. I'm not bothered by greek life, I'm just not into it.

Campus Dining: There is a lot to eat, but I find it hard to eat healthy campus. Most of the food is fast food style. The cafeterias like Harris and Commons have more healthy options but overall it's mostly junk food.

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.
