Athletics: I play intramural soccer and it can be pretty competitive for those that are playing

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I'm personally moving into a 2 bedroom apartment and only paying around 500$. Most places will cost more for only 2 people but that is why there are plenty of choices

Party Scene: Most of the parties always happen on Thursdays because most students don't have Friday classes

3 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus in campus housing is all about what you make it!! For me it was amazing. The meal plans we are forced to buy come in handy more than not.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Football is the most popular sport on campus and tailgating is a big thing. The student recreation center is pretty good. It is multi-level with a good selection of machines and free weights.There is also a pool, a rock climbing wall, a track, and a smoothie bar all housed inside the recreation center as well. Sometimes machines are broken and aren't fixed for a while.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The health center is useful, you can usually get an appointment same day you call. The pharmacy is very convenient for people who don't want to drive to a Walgreens or CVS to pick up medications.

During the day safety usually isn't a big issue on campus. However at night campus is very dark in some places because of a lack of lighting. It can feel very dangerous walking on campus at night, particularly as a female or if you are alone.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of apartment complexes in the area that only lease to students. Prices are also variable, so students can usually find something within their specific price range. Additionally, the shuttle service picks up near most apartments. Quality is quite variable as well. I've lived in good and poor quality apartments, so it's best to do your research before leasing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: There are always parties being held at the many student apartments located off campus. Tubing on the river is also a very popular social activity during the hotter months of school.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is really great, there are a lot of options including both local spots and restaurant chains. The Square particularly has many places to choose from ans is located within walking distances to campus. There are also a number of coffee shops near campus perfect for late night studying.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Didn't have any hassle receiving financial aid once all required documents were submitted.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Overall, very good selection of food on campus. Nice variety and prices aren't outrageous.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: all the off campus housing apartments are great and close by. most are non strict which is awesome.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I myself am in a fraternity and can tell you the parties we have are the best.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: i love the student discounts and all the variety.

3 College Freshman

Administration: parking is the worst thing ever, but everything else is tolerable.

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.
