5 College Freshman

Majors: As a business management major, I was very scared that it would be boring, repetitive classes that didn't keep my interest. With 20/20 hindsight, though, I'd pick this program again in a heartbeat. The professors are extremely energetic and truly have interest in what they're talking about. My goal, ultimately, is to get my law degree and MBA and become an oil and gas attorney. The one concern I have with that, however, is the fact that there isn't much demand for attorneys in the current economic climate.

Majors: As a business management major here, I'm part of one of the top 10% of business schools in the nation. The department heads maintain great communication with people in the Business School. The professors are very diverse and are very attentive to student needs. I have not yet had the opportunity to have an internship, but many businesses in the area offer them to students.

Weather: It's very warm and humid, but not uncomfortable. It rains sporadically at times, but usually the weather is somewhat pleasant. It always feels nice outside.

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options for off campus housing, but you've got to be careful which one you choose. ALL are student oriented and most of the time built very fast, so be very careful as you choose the one that suits you the most.

Majors: I love this college, it feels so friendly and it feels like family. So far I've enjoyed the classes thoroughly, the professors are GREATLY qualified and prepared.

4 College Junior

Majors: I transferred from a Mexican school and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the classes. The only thing I would change would be the process, I'd like it to be a bit more helpful and detailed.

Campus Strictness: There is not much strictness with the school overall. I mean there is always constant partying and drinking for underage students. I mean its college I guess. There are police services but they don't take underage drinking very seriously until someone gets hurt.

Parking: The parking on campus is average. Students will find a parking spot no matter what and it is reasonably priced for visitors on campus when they need to park somewhere.

Drug Safety: I have never witnessed someone doing drugs on campus, but I have heard there are students who find a secluded place, or sometimes even sneak some in their room and smoke it. I have heard students talk about places off campus to do drugs as well.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is awesome and convenient. There are not only your typical dorms but also a variety of campus apartments. The apartments are affordable and cheaper than the apartments in town. Campus apartments are a great choice for non-traditional students as well as upperclassmen.

Transportation: We have campus buses that provide continuous transportation around campus as well as around town. The buses will take you all over town, to non-campus housing as well as to the local outlet malls. It is very convenient and best of all it is FREE. The cost is included in your tuition.

Academics: I have attended several top universities in two different states, by far Texas State has been superior. There is an obvious focus on academics and student research as well as an overall excellent student college career and experience. The professors are top notch from various educational backgrounds with tons of experience in their field. Many of the professors are published authors and are well known nationwide in their prospective fields of study. The faculty and staff are very student oriented and are always willing to help you succeed the best way for you. There are programs for everyone with all types of interests.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking is HORRIBLE! Its better to say that there is no parking. They have a great bus system though which is your best bet when going to class.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The classes are pretty challenging. but are easy enough for you to pass

Off-Campus Dining: There are some pretty good restaurants in the San Marcos area.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Texas State life could be better if it wasn't such a party school. Other than that the staff care about the students and the campus is beautiful. There are many green spaces, and a river that runs right through campus, it doesn't get much better than that.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: San Marcos is a small town, but it's an environment that caters very well to a college student and their needs.

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.
