4 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus is a nightmare! its so hard to find a spot especially for commuters because residents buy the cheaper resident passes instead of the resident passes. And there are less spots than permits given out in the year. Parking services are very strict and will give anyone a ticket.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety is very important on campus. Late at night there is a service called Bobbies who pick up girls who are walking around late at night who want a lift to their destination to ensure they get there safely. It is very helpful and super useful if your just tired and wanna catch a quick ride.

Campus Strictness: As long as your following the rules, make friends with your RA, and respect the law enforcement you'll be fine!

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The town on San Marcos has about 36,000 residents and of those 36,000, about 34,000 are Texas State University students. The easiest way to unwind on the weekend is to grab a few handfuls of your close friends and head out for a night on the town! Whether it be the various bars and clubs around the Square or the house parties up in the hill country, its never a dull weekend. Even if your underage, there are dollar movies and hookah bars, plus if your feeling a little adventurous you could always jump in the river.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are so many places to get food around campus. There are quick pick up style restaurants to buffet style eating all for a reasonable price and on every corner on campus! There is so much variety from pizza, to chicken and all the way back to vegetarian. Even coffee shops for those slower mornings.

Overall Experience: I love Texas State. Everything from the people to the classes to the scenery drew me in and I have no regrets about coming here. I have had so much fun growing as an individual and having this beautiful campus be a part of that. I think one of the best things about Texas State is the sense of pride of being a bobcat. Every person will never hesitate to yell 'State' if someone yells 'Texas' first. This is our mantra, so the pride is very tangible.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have yet to see any drugs or alcohol being consumed on campus. Texas State is also a smoke-free campus, which is great.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Texas weather which means it can be pretty bipolar. We don't really have tangible seasons, and it is either hot or warm most of the time, but still manageable and beautiful.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Texas State is EXTREMELY diverse. Diversity has always been encouraged and sought after and it is always fun meeting people from all over the world.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Texas State has many buffet-style dining halls as well as some food court options. Both are close and satisfying.

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.
