3 College Freshman

Transportation: Campus bus/shuttle covers most the town and all the apartment complexes.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: All the fast food chains you'd expect, with enough local/unique flavor thrown in.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Hard to comment as I am not involved in Greek Life, but I respect the people who are, and their parties.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The square is a great place to chill on the weekends with a multitude of bars, and Austin and San Antonio are both roughly half an hour away.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus at my current school.

5 College Freshman

Weather: Nothing beats the san marcos river! Weather is warm most the year, and the cold weeks aren't all bad.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The apartment complexes play "hard ball" whenever they can, high sub-lease fees, and cancellation fees. A friend who joined the military is STILL fighting with her complex to end her lease so she can go to Basic.

College Freshman

Academics: I do not start major-specific courses until this coming semester.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Awesome professors, and awesome campus!

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: some greeks live in the houses but some don't. greeks are in a lot of organizations on campus and some people say that greeks run the school. if you're not in a greek life though it's still possible to have a really similar college experience. non-greeks sometimes really don't like greeks and sometimes they don't care.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: there's always something going on. a party or going to the square or 6th street.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: san marcos is so cute and unique. i love it

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.
