5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather can be very enjoyable here. The only problem is that it's Texas weather, so it could be freezing one day and hot the next.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The open areas on campus are very well-kept and clean. They're an enjoyable place to relax.

Facilities: If you aren't someone, you won't be. It's difficult for me to make friends, because everyone is involved in something and I'm not.

Guys & Girls: Greek life is definitely prevalent here. You can tell who is in what, just by what they wear and act like.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It hasn't been the best experience, but it'll get better.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The police are readily available, but aren't overbearing.

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.
