4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The campus is beautiful and not too big, and the location in San Marcos is nice; it has a small-town-ish feel while still being close to Austin or San Antonio. Res life does a great job making freshmen feel welcome, the professors are pretty great, and you definitely back what you put in at this school. The river on campus is a lot of fun and the park is beautiful.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Along with academic advisors there are also student advisors which rang from juniors and seniors to graduate students which is great because they care for you and only want the best. They give the best advice for internships because they've been through it before.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are great for networking and every single student no matter what school you go to should talk to all of their professors because it will pay off at some point. The classes get smaller each year. Freshmen year is when everyone has to take the basic classes so those will generally be big but once sophomore, junior and senior year comes then it's more specific to the major one has chosen.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are police posts all around the school so if someone feels unsafe walking home at night they can press it and someone from the campus police can walk them safely to their dorm. There's a clinic on campus that's open to all students and there are licensed doctors there too. One of the best in the state.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I personally chose a traditional residence so that I could be more social and make friends easily and it payed off because the whole floor shared a bathroom so it made it easier to get to know people and make friends.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: You will see the Greeks doing a lot of community service around the campus and they also do through some pretty cool parties.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not really into sports that much but I do workout at the recreation center and it's one of the best I've seen. Everyone loves the intramural sports though. Each time a game is held there are a bunch of people there.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas State is in a small town called San Marcos but it is a twenty minute drive to Austin and San Antonio so you get the best of both worlds. They have over 400 groups and organizations on campus so everyone can participate in something. All of the professors care about you and are great for networking at school the students just have to be brave enough to talk to them before or after class. I'm definitely happy about choosing this school and if I had a chance to re do it I would still choose Texas State because it's extraordinary!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: When I signed up for my classes, I was able to see my class size and choose a class that would benefit my learning the most. I plan on joining the honors college im the spring semester to have a better experience, and a better variety with my classes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I know that the business program is one of the best in the county and I'm super proud to be apart of it. With the credentials that the school of business has, I'm sure any job would be very pleased to my degree from the school of business.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have visited a friend during the past school year at Texas State and we decided to take a night walk to go look around. As we were on our walk, I felt very safe and it was very quiet, I knew that no one would try to do something to hurt us. I also saw the emergency call buttons every few steps that made me feel a little more safer walking alone at night.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are plenty of housing options which makes it easy for someone to find a home that first them best. I love how you can choose how close from the school you want to live, and how you can choose what style of dorm you want. All the of the residential halls make you feel very welcomed and very settled in, especially when you're in an unfamiliar place.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are a ton of chapters in the Greek life which gives a lot of people opportunities to join. I don't know personally how they affect the school because I am an incoming freshman, but I am looking forward to rushing tbis fall semester.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Im not quite sure. i am a photo major and as alot of art majors will know, its not easy to find a job in our field.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our campus police has a system set up for alerting the campus public about assaults, exposures and robberies. they are pretty good about keeping us updated on the search and accepting community help in the identification of the perpetrators. however i feel as if campus could use better lighting at night and perhaps night shift guards to roam campus during all night hours.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus was wonderful. the dorm life really taught me how to be social and come out of my shell. The quality of the dorm however depends on the dorm itself. some are new, and some are as old as old main. however, they are constantly doing renovations and the dorm common areas are kept pretty clean with daily janitorial visits.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Ive always viewed greek life as a way to pay for your social life. and for that matter a good mark on your resume. im not a big fan of them and dont feel as if they really do as much for their community unless they are being told. i find them to usually be obnoxious and rather in your face. one can hardly walk down the quad during the warm months without someone stepping in your way to loudly present you with a flyer or request donation for their "cause". i makes traveling campus rather uncomfortable and sometimes even a hassle.

Athletics: Sports is a big part of TSU especially since we are smack dab in the middle of Texas. However, since we haven't always had the best records on the score boards, the students become less and less enthusiastic about the games as the game goes on and as the season goes on.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Texas State University is a great school for the just out of high school student. its dorm environment is conductive to both learning and developing social skills with peers. there is a diversity at this school like none other and all generally accepting of each other. the off campus surrounding area is greatly supportive of the school and offers plenty of activities for the students.

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus I live off campus but from the stories I hear are great. the dorms are fairly new at the school and they are convenient for the people who live on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is easy to join if your interested in greek life. Greek life is popular just like any other organization on campus. there are a lot of different greeks on campus and there are plenty of greek housing.

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.
