Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly fast food restaurants, so there aren't a lot of options for people who want diverse and healthy food

4 College Freshman

Diversity: You do see gay and lesbian couples on campus and they feel freely to open and who they really are. On the quad there sometimes are people who protest or simply state their beliefs openly.

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.
