College Junior

Campus Strictness: I do not spend much time on campus and I am only on campus to attend my classes. I do not know what undergraduate life is like at Texas State.

Computers: Great computer labs and fast wifi on campus. There is no printing limit at the library so it is a great place to print for free rather than paying at a different private lab.

Greek Life: As a graduate student I am no longer able to participate in Greek life but I am an alumni of a Greek sorority from another university and I have heard great things about greek life from friends currently in the chapter at Texas State

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.
