Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is okay, but there aren't many things to do there other than take a trip to the river, but you can only really do that when it is swimming time. Other than that, the recreation center is great if you want to stay fit and there are many organizations to join campus but not many attractions near Texas State.

Parking: I hate the parking services at Texas State because it is all so expensive and the parking spaces are super far from your actual classes! Fines are super expensive too! It is all ridiculous just because it is so hard to even find a parking space open for you to park in.

Diversity: Political beliefs is something i'm not too sure of, but everything else is very acceptable here! That is one great thing of our campus.

Greek Life: I know a lot of greek members are looked bad upon due to their actions, but that is about it.

Health & Safety: This would have to be one of the main reasons why I dislike my campus so much! Campus crime, safety services, personal safety and special security measures are so low, it gets scary walking around on your own at times.

Off-Campus Housing: In all honestly, I do not live off campus, but from what I have heard, living off campus is a headache. Leases can have sneaky key words in them that leave people in debt and it is quite horrific.

Overall Experience: The experience is a good one, just because it is college, and not high school, but I'm not to sure if I would choose Texas State as my first choice just because of all the hills and steps throughout the campus. On presentation days, it's super hard to actually dress up just because you get all sweaty from just going from one class to another.

Transportation: I'm pretty sure the campus shuttle cost was covered in our tuition, so I really don't know how much I paid for it, but it does help a lot of people out. Now, if you want to go out of the city and go see some other cool places, then you really need your own car.

Weather: The weather changes constantly! I'm not sure if I like it to much, but I do attend a university at Texas. The weather here is not frankly reliable.

Computers: The computers, the network reliability, speed, and the wireless access is super great to me since I don't have to pay for internet or wait around too long to have access on a computer. The best part is that we get free printing so it makes my life way easier!

1 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I do not believe the campus I go it is Drug and Alcohol safe. Drugs and alcohol are super easy to find and they are used by over half of my campus. It's really sad. Plus, people come in the next day to class looking like they had the time of their night, the night before and always brag about it to everyone.
Peer pressure is a maybe there, simply because you really don't get pressured into doing anything. People just do it. And the policy enforcement is there, but is totally not respected.

Scholarships: At first, I did struggle with financial aid and it was probably because I really didn't get any help with it. At first, I had to pay tuiton out of pocket because they still did not have the money they needed to pay my tuition, but after a month or so i got my money back. Sadly, I did not try getting scholarships at the school, but I really am in huge need of them.

Nightlife: Since I have started college, I have not attended a party at all. I always tend to leave out of town or I'm always working so I don't have much say so in the nightlife category.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The way people dress in in a relaxable attire which we all feel comfortable in since the campus has so many hills and steps everywhere you go. Everyone is pretty nice and the diversity there is super great! One thing about these people and that most of them love to party so they are always trying to get Friday classes off just so they can have a three day weekend. Other than that, the atmosphere and the people are really sweet.

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.
