Off-Campus Housing: You can find some nice ones, but expensive.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: They were close by, but no student discounts.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I believe it is just right where it's at.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: All I had to do was accept awards on website.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not many healthy options, limited, and pricey.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Expensive, good location, lounge, and lively.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I would not want to rate it yet, because I have only gone through the lease signing process and have not actually lived off campus yet.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really party. On weekends, I have movie nights with my boyfriend and listen to music.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: My dorm building was close to a lot of restaurants, so I enjoyed eating off campus, but there was not much variety. You choose between tacos and sandwiches, which I am fine with. There were not any student discounts, which made things pricy. I will not be eating out that often this coming semester.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I haven't really noticed that much enforcement of rules and am only basing my answers off of stories I've heard. Apparently, parking is overly strict, whist I, myself have not seen too much enforcement of anything else.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid, and my degree program does not offer scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It sustains you, and could definitely be worse, but for what I pay for it, it is not good enough. I am not getting a meal plan ever again. I had too many swipes left over, and waisted over $100.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I loved being able to walk everywhere I needed to go for school. Also, were I was located I had access to many shops and things to do also. The housing process was easy, but I am looking forward to being off campus next semester, where it is cheaper, less crowded, and I have my own living space.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Gaillardia Hall on the Texas State campus. This hall has a close walk to where the majority of the classes are. The housing process is fairly easy and it really takes you step by step. the worst dorms to live in are the new ones Falls and Sayers, the walk to class is very very far and you might have to wake up 30-40 minuets early to make it to class on time. The down part to Gaillardia was the community bathroom, although it was kept very clean by the janitors it felt like a public school bathroom.

Scholarships: I would say if you're applying for financial aid do it as early as possible to be sure to get the aid that you want and need. The process did take a awhile to read through but it really is worth it. Texas State made it easy and simple to do.

Campus Food: The campus food at Texas State isn't all that friendly for people who are trying to eat healthy because the healthy options are not covered by meal plans. The dining dollars are really great for grabing a quick coffee before heading to the library. The dining halls do have a salad bar which is really great.

Overall Experience: I love the campus, I love all of the new people I've met, my program is thriving, the campus is diverse and there is always something to do. It's also nice to be a smaller town but located to bigger towns in both directions.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm always getting emails from career services, which is nice.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls on campus tend to be pretty diverse. There is always people super dresses up, casually dressed and in work out gear. Interests are pretty diverse as well.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Students don't typically get pumped about sports. The rec is pretty nice though and used by many!

Scholarships: My biggest tip is that the earlier you apply for financial aid the better. Also the unsubsidized loans add more pressure to students because it starts to accumulate interest automatically.

Campus Food: The food is okay. Some of the healthy places, such as freshens, don't allow you to have more than a certain amount of veggies in your salad which makes it less filling. The sandwich place in jones is nice and I use to love all of the dressing options. There isn't many options for breakfast if you want something quick before class.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
