Off-Campus Dining: Cost is pretty average for the most part. There are some places that you can get great deals. If you have a car it is very convenient. Student discounts are offered at some places but not most. I think there is a big variety. Check out Grinns:)

Overall Experience: My experience has been great. I love my school. My university has a great atmosphere. The students are so friendly and it is extremely easy to make friends. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous! I have never been to a pretty school. Texas State gives you a great feeling when your there. Its a perfect, peaceful, and fun atmosphere.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I think overall it is a really safe campus. There is this really cool thing the school does, basically if a crime or assault happened they will email us the report so we can be notified and call them if we see the suspect.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Its okay. The office gets really bak ed up with paperwork so it takes a really long time to get through the whole process. I currently received my aid but it wasn't enough so now I am struggling to get the remainder of the money. Since I got my aid so late most of the scholarships are over. I can stay this was a struggle for me.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics are pretty popular. I do not attend any games, just the homecoming football game. I am mostly studying or working.

5 College Senior

Majors: I love my program. Science was always a strong point in my life. Yes I would definitely do it all over because I really do enjoy this major and the school. My career goals are to graduate with a Bachelors degree in Biology and the get accepted to a PA school where I will receive my masters degree and become a Physicians Assistant!! :) The only concerns I have is about getting into PA, I heard that it is a difficult to get into as Medical School.

4 College Senior

Majors: There was no process of getting into my program. When you turn in your application for the school you put the major you want on it and thats it. There really isn't anything abnormal about the application process or becoming a Biology major. Everything is very easy.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus. When I can to Texas State I was a transfer from a junior college back at home, therefore I did not have to live on campus because I was not a freshman. Even though I did not have to I did want to but by the time I tried to fill out the housing contract all the housing on campus was full. The freshman classes coming in keep getting bigger and campus housing fills up really quick.

4 College Senior

Academics: I think the academics are great. I am a biology major and I definitely find this major to be competitive. Is the work load a lot? Yes, definitely. I am planning on being a Physicians Assistant though so I need to get used to a big work load, PA school will not be a breeze. I feel like this work load is just preparing me for my future. I feel that the curriculum is great, I have learned so much in the major.

4 College Senior

Academics: Professors are good, anywhere you go you are going to have some good professors and some bad. I have had some amazing professors that I will forever remember and will hopefully be coming back to in the future for recommendation letters. However, I have also had some professors that were all over the place and extremely unorganized. I would wind up teaching myself the material. Registration is pretty easy, the website is set-up pretty easy understand. Texas State offers tons of study options. There is a floor at the library called SLAC where students go to be tutored on any subject. Teachers also have many options for office hours and are willing to work with your times.

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.
