Nightlife: The square is very close to campus. There are frat functions lots of days out of the week. Weekends are great to get out and relax. There are lots of bars, shops, and clubs in The Square which is literally a walking distance from campus. I've actually walked to a party there before.

Parking: The cost for a parking permit is totally outrageous. It is either $300 or $500. That's more than a car's monthly payment. The tickets are pretty cheap but still. If the permits weren't so expensive more people would definitely have them.

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.
