4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: All students are very respectful with each other.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls are really pretty but super preppy. There is more of a variety of guys - from rednecks to skaters to nerds. I don't see a lot of relationships on campus but a ton of hookups.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Girls at TXST usually dress comfortably as in Nike shorts and t-shirts or leggings and oversized shirt. Guys typically wear jeans and a shirt. Unless you're going for a frat look which is Easter colored short shorts with an Easter color Polo.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You just have to meet the right people in order to get along with them.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The social life is great at Texas State University. Everyone is very friendly and outgoing, although like every school there are a few stuck-up not so nice people. The students tend to be very friendly especially at parties. This is one of the main reasons why I chose this school because of how friendly and accepting people were. There is a group of friends for everybody no matter what background they are from.

The student body at Texas State is so diverse that there really aren't any people who discriminate against each other. For most of the students, academics tend to come first. But despite this—we do still know how to party! 

There are so many interesting people at Texas State. You'll make conversation on the bus, waiting for class to start, pretty much anywhere. It's easy to find everything from study partners to new friends. Everyone loves going to parties and socializing at the river.
