5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am so happy that I chose the physical therapy program at Texas State because I have made so many new friends and so far it has been one of the best school experiences I've had.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: For the physical therapy program, we work for half of a semester in the onsite clinic which is our first interaction with patients. Our last year we do clinical rotations where the professors pair us up with locations that match our likes and personalities.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I really like the physical therapy program. The way the program is structured is set up so that the students and professors interact on a daily basis and are easily reached.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I like the content taught in the Physical Therapy program but some of the classes can be pointless at times. For the most part it is a great program.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The campus is great and most of the professors i have had are amazing.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Texas State University is a very diverse campus and everyone is very welcoming.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Many diverse races, religions, and sexual orientations. Everyone is very accepting of other people's beliefs, and most people on campus like to learn about peoples different cultures and belief systems. We also have many many clubs and organizations furthering the acceptance of all sexual orientations. One of the main ones is known as ally.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: San Marcos is a small town but it is really close to the outlets and other really cute shops and stores. Also the river is alot of fun and very beautiful.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Everyone here is nice and attractive, anyone is willing to help.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are really ALOT of options. The smallest meal plan is 150 meal trades with 125 Dinning Dollars, that is a good amount to start out with. However, you will get bored of eating the same kind of foods. The Dinning Dollars are accepted off campus too. So you can always treat yourself to other options whenever you get tired. At each semester, you unused meal trades will transfer but your Dinning Dollars do not.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: As a Nursing Major, I have many options of schools to go to. Texas State has a fairly new nursing program that started in 2010. That is what caught my eye, I wanted to be apart of something really new. I would never change my major. Its real competitive to get into, which just makes me strive harder for A's. My ultimate goal is to become a CRNA, seeing as I'll be in school for such a long time, I picked up a business minor to fall back on in case I do not get into the graduate program or can't find a job right away. Always got to have a back up plan.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't know much about the 21+ parts about the nightlife, seeing as I am underage. However, I have heard A LOT of great things about it. But, there is alot of options for underage nightlife!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: This is really how you get into the social life. Random people will just come knock on your door and invite you out. Everyone is so nice to each other. All dorms have ups and downs. It all really just depends on how you look at the situation and pick good roommates. The costs is very good.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: San Marcos is right between Austin and San Antonio! Therefore, it's great living in this area. It's also a very friendly and outdoor kind of place. Small town feel surrounded by big city life. Perfect!

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There are dining halls all over campus, but after a while, you get tired of the food.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation is great! There is a tram that takes you all over campus, off campus, and to other cities!

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm satisfied with my education. My professors are great!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of different apartments near campus that allows you to be close to the university, but still have some freedom.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of different cultures at this university and organizations to allow you to feel closer to your culture and people that share the same background as you.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Texas State has a lot of School Spirit it is great

2 College Senior

Parking: I'm not going to lie, parking at Texas State sucks! It's expensive, and you have to come to campus around 8 am to find a spot.

4 College Senior

Computers: There are tons of computer labs on campus that are free and readily available to students. The network can be slow occasionally though.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There is a variety of apartments available in San Marcos. Some are extremely close to campus which is nice because you can just walk right to class! There are 1-4 bedroom apartments available all over town. I use a location service each year to decide where I will live. They give you an overview of prices, perks, parking, etc. San Marcos is a pretty safe place to live as well.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a high selection of fast food chains. I am not particularly fond of that. Only one restuarant offers a student discount. There are many large restuarants however I don't want to eat there since I am usually just needing something fast and easy.

4 College Senior

Academics: I am very pleased with the McCoy School of Business at Texas State. The overall experience has been rewarding and professional. Most professors use their real world experience to help guide the class throught the semester. Every professor has been considerate of our personal needs such as a 40 hr work week, kids, family, etc. It's such a warm and welcoming atmosphere that fosters learning, I love it!

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.
