3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The few apartments I have been to are extremely convenient.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a great variety of places to eat at off campus and very convenient t o get to.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Our campus administration has always been in a positive light to me.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: I rarely received any scholarships.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Great way to get to know new people. You learn faces and names by socializing with people from campus outside of campus, because on campus people are usually busy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Our campus food is not bad, and it's not the best.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I hate my dorm, but I am grateful I have a place to stay. It has to be one of the oldest buildings on campus. It makes me feel extremely uncomfortable at times. There are sometimes bugs. It is a very convenient place on campus, as far as my classes are concerned.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Keeping in mind that there are options, makes it easier to select residence. Most have a variety in number of roommates. Keep looking for your budget range!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Awesome, if you have transportation. Cruising around is the best way to find new places and good parking. Get out there!

5 College Sophomore

Administration: If you're cooped up and complaining about having no where to go or no one to go with, just get out there, because it sounds like you need to. Why wait? It'll look just as beautiful. Get out, do something, meet people. Have fun (:

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not receive very much aid. Google everything you don't know before talking to financial advisors so that you can have a better conversation with them.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party that much, but there's akways something going on and people going places throughout the week. Bars are cool too if you're of age.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Poor choice in flavoring, awkward. Or food is very bland. Most swipe options are greasy or fried. Small drink for swipes and mostly soda or poorly brewed tea.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Aside, from the size of the two person rooms, the living space is a great up starter for freshman! The campus diners are not amazing, but won't leave you starving. Lots of cool sights and good restaurants around campus. The trails of San Marcos are beautiful and should be seen often.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The cost is a lot, but worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Great variety of food places to go.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They are fair and understanding.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My tuition gets covered, yet I only worry about my rent.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party often tbh

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I like the space, but it's far from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Conveniently located to most of my classes.

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.
