4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are plenty of opportunities for students to stay active and to be involved in some type of sport. Overall, there is a ton of school spirit throughout the campus which is really amazing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have only visited Texas State University for college visits and for my orientation. I had an amazing experience meeting new people that were so friendly, and the campus was beautiful. I saw so many opportunities to get an amazing education in the years I study there which made me really excited.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love this school. great experience.

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.

4 College Junior

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.

5 College Sophomore

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.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love texas state because as soon as I got there I feel welcomed. Overall its a good school and it has good ratings who wouldn't want to go there. There are alot of clubs and organizations to join. everyone is friendly and its just a fun school to go to. You will meet a diverse of people there and its easy to make friends.

Athletics: The athletics are in good shape and condition. Everyone who goes to my school is very involved not just the athletics. Texas state is a welcoming community so everyone likes to get involved. there are plenty of clubs and organizations on campus to get involved in. there is a lot of support on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every professor that I have had at Texas State University has been very helpful, always makes sure the students understand, and offer countless services to make sure we are successful.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree from any school is a good thing in my opinion. In order to become successful and be able to get a good decent job, I believe you need a degree from a university.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Texas State UPD makes me feel very safe on campus. We have on call officers and Emergency Poles scattered through campus. If you feel threatened you can push a button on the pole and an officer will come to you within minutes. Our emergency services have always been helpful and always are given out in a timely manor.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As a previous freshman, I loved staying in my on-campus apartment. There was plenty of room, I had a full kitchen, and my own bathroom with a washer and dryer. Texas State has 24 residence halls, each unique, and they are all great places to reside.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in Greek life, but some of my friends are and they love it. The bonds they have formed will last them a life-time and for that I am very happy for them.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports do not make a university in my opinion. Texas State's sports program is not the best; however, being able to go to the games and support my fellow Bobcats is good enough for me. I feel at home at events and ar always surrounded by great students and fans to help make every game memorable.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Texas State University is one of the most diverse colleges I have experienced. There are many different people who I have been able to become close to, whom I would not have even thought about being friends with until I came to this university. Texas State has become my second home and I am very fortunate to be able to be a student. The professors are fantastic and they really do care about the success of their students. The town of San Marcos is also very pretty, with amazing and fun events that help make this university one of the best in the state.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Struggling in football haven't had a winning season in 20 years in basketball

5 College Junior

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.
