5 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's not hard to find a job as an Engineer.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt threatened. I don't carry any weapons. Even at night, i feel safe and i think the people around me feel that way as well.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I'm close to my classes. The food is good. The noise is tolerable. Getting into housing was easy.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't pay attention to them. When they come to the library, they are pretty loud. I have a few in my classes and they aren't any different form the rest of us.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a good school. I would choose my school again because the program is small, which helps me. My school is unique because it has a lot of diversity for Texas. My favorite experience is going to the library because that is all I have time for.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I have to study all the time, so I don't get to go to them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall my professors have been great like every where else I believe you get what you put into it so if you do the work and what the professor says is important you will get the grade you deserve. The class styles are very different from professor to professor. Class sizes vary depending on importance I feel because English and math are relatively small and ethics or introduction to fine arts is rather large.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They do a lot for alumni. You can always use their facilities to get jobs and advice. Right now I am applying to jobs and they are making it so easy for employers to view my resume and cover letter. They are very helpful and are a wonderful resource.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Elliott right now and I love the atmosphere here the community is great. Every one tries to get involved with activities in the building. The rooms are rather small but not too bad if you rearrange the beds. The cost is not too high but could be lower for the conditions like having to share a two bathrooms with 16 girls and not having Wi-Fi but in the lobby. But my over all experience here is pretty good and I've made a couple of good friends.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not really involved in Greek life but they say it is great and I know a lot of people in it love it. They feel like they have made a family here that does not compare to any other organization or group they have ever been in.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The location of Texas State University is beautiful I love the climate. They are still doing some remodeling and are updating a lot of their buildings so sometimes it is noisy and you have to change your routine to get around the construction, but what they have finished is beautiful and knowing that I don't mind the construction. My classes have been great I have meet a lot of new and diverse people. As long as you attend classes and get involved you will love this school. I also love the different activities done on campus like the Dia de los Muertos activities they did were awesome. But I think my favorite part was the puppies during finals week.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: When there was a shooting threat on campus, the campus police sent out facebook messages, emails, and text about everything that was going on and updates. They also increase security detail on campus to keep students and faculty safe. After this happen, I have always felt the school was a safe place for me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The course I take for my degree are extremely helpful. The professors are easy to talk to and help everyone try to succeed in the class. The class size is can range from 20-250 people. The professor really try to engage every student into the class.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I do not know much about the process on how to get into some of the Greek life organization, but they are very active on campus. They are always on the quad trying to get people to join, or support whatever charity they are trying to get money for. I have not notice any non-Greek and Greek drama. People tend to stay with their group of friends.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Granted there is great school spirit during the football season, I personally do not here a lot about other sports. I feel like Texas State University is more of an academic school then it is a athletic school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love being at Texas State University. My favorite experience here was my first day of class. All of the my class were fun and a great learning experience. What is unique about Texas State University is the river. The river is wonderful during the hotter months in Texas and a great study area. I would choose this school again because of its great learn atmosphere. I feel like I am getting the best education I need for my future.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Texas State is still just getting up to the standards of the big universities in Texas, but it is definitely making strides and will be able to compete with the big universities in the very near future!

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.
