4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I love living in Sanctuary Lofts right off of campus. I don't have to worry about sitting on a bus for 30 minutes just to get to class, I can walk to class!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love the new places they just put in like Torchy's Tacos, but I would love to see a Bahama Buck's be in San Marcos. I feel like they would receive a lot of business from college students.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I'm not one to party all that much, but there will always be a party at the Square. This school is not as big of a party school as everyone thinks it is.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus strictness at Texas State is pretty even with other schools. Texas State is still viewed as a big party school when every other school is doing the same things.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Texas State is extremely supportive when it comes to military families and the benefits of higher education. Of course with any money comes the price of time to fill out paperwork, but I believe it was worth it..

Campus Food: The meal plans are frustrating because there are too many swipes and not enough times to eat. With Jones being remodeled, that took away many food options. I also wish there were more healthy options available.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It was exciting living in the dorms because of the community I was surrounded by. I made some of my best friends in the dorms and are now my roommates today.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Many apartments are overpriced, run-down, or have bad management. Do your research and ask around before signing a lease.

Administration: In some cases, it's great, such as cutting down smokers and avoiding alcoholism. Others, such as the over-strictness of parking, are not good for the student.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: I am not a party person, but most of the stories I heard were the majority of them got busted or they were really bad.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I had a pretty easy time with them. There were a few times I needed a question answered ASAP and I was put on hold or waited in line for very long periods of time, but they were able to resolve my problems. The best advice is to contact them during the middle of the semester. There's a huge surplus at the beginning and end.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some dorms a little run down, though the new ones make up for that. Rules sometimes are not enforced enough so some students get away with things.

Health & Safety: Being a victim you just have to be aware of your surroundings. Alcohol plays a major role so as long as you keep your wits and don;t get totally wasted you'll be fine.

Greek Life: As a non greek I think they are okay. Some have their moments though and can be too entitled or rude but that's more of a personality thing that a greek thing.

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.
