4 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you're under 21, then you might not have too much fun at the clubs unless you're just there to dance. They are pretty strict when it comes to not selling to minors. Other than that, The Square is literally walking distance. Now if you're looking somewhere to drink under the age of 21, then you're going to have to attend a party that provides alcohol or know someone who is 21 to buy you alcohol.

Diversity: It's college. Nobody truly cares what your beliefs are. Just don't be that person to shove your beliefs down someone's throat. Thats not okay. Overall, nobody cares if you Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Gay, Bisexual or Straight. As long as you're nice and not creepy, then you'll be treated with respect.

Drug Safety: You're going to find drugs at all schools. Even your local high school. You just need to be smart in what you put in your body. Nobody can "force" you to take drugs. You can always say "no". Honestly, at Texas State, I've never been pressured in taking drugs. I've been offered but never pressured.

3 College Freshman

Weather: We live in Texas. One day is hot and the next its freezing. That's just Texas weather.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The parking overall is okay. The only thing I dislike are the parking services ladies.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I just think that the cost of parking is too high....

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are not that money options, and when you do want something it is too far to walk. I have the plan, but i still try to have some food in my dorms so when i cannot go to the eating places, i at least can have something to eat.
It is ok- but not like WOW.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the field that i am headed to, there are awesome professors and then you have some that are just there.
the subject where i have awesome professors, my time just flies. I really like what i am doing right now and i am try to enjoy my campus life..I am not much into parting- i never have been, but the students that i do go out with are awesome and i appreciate them.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I would love to do the intership like New York, or even London- but financially i know that my parents could not afford it.
They try so hard to keep in the univeristy that i am in. I was in the top 10% percent of my class and i applied for so many scholarships, but i do not know what happened. I asked for work study and was also denied. But again, i would love to do my intership in New York.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: In the dorm that i am in, it is average, we all try to get along, and it is pleasant.
Security is visible, but not always............

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: High School Years are very important and being on a team, varisity team which ever spoort you decide to participate on is an honor, and all students should take pride on that, however- i was in a varisity team my freshmen year, and due to the coaches and their favorites i ended up not playing my Senior year which i really regret, that a coach could do that to a stdent, especially since i was loyal and had my spirits so high- but when they start playing favorites and the favorites cannot hold up their end of the bargain it can be very sad, to a player that loves the sport.

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.
