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

4 College Sophomore

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I want to review the social atmosphere. It's easy to find great networks

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is very expensive in San Marcos and many of the apartments are inconveniently far away from the university. However, I know that closer ones are being built currently.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Alot of resteruants are expensive and I wish they had more healthy options but they're honestly pretty typical to any other city so I can't complain.

4 College Senior

Administration: I think they are very helpful and affective!

Scholarships: The Fasfa did all the work for me! It is kind of difficult to find scholarships I wish our Financial aid office had advisors that would help you find and apply for them. But they try to be as helpful on the phone when you have a question as possible!

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.
