3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: there are some pretty good places to eat around here

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are not enough healthy options to choose from

1 College Sophomore

Administration: I have gotten about $1000 worth of parking tickets

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Mostly loans that will have me in debt in the future

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I really enjoyed living on campus but there needs to be healthier food dining choices!

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene gives us a bad reputation, but you can choose to have fun without going to parties, or even go to parties but you don't have to drink. They're great to get to know people and spend time with friends

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of places really close to campus, within walking distance usually!

4 College Freshman

Administration: I've never broken any of the policies, so I haven't faced any trouble. RA's can be super strict or really chill.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was not offered the financial aid I thought I would have been. Apply as early as possible.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Tons of options, but I don't know that I'd eat on campus without a meal plan

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Texas State provides several opportunities to get financial aid through the school.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The best thing to do is after your first year, find an apartment.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Texas State has something for everyone. Whether you're looking to relax and have a good time, or go out and make the most of the night there's always something to do.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: San Marcos provides plenty of options for students looking to eat off campus. The restaurants aren't usually over-priced and many are open late.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school is fairly lenient on violations, and the school provides a student lawyer for anyone who needs assistance with violations. In certain areas, like parking, the school is too strict and causes many of its students extra stress by issuing an overabundance of tickets.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food at Texas State was fairly diverse. Food was made available and within reasonable proximity no matter where you were on campus. If you didn't like one type of food that they served there was always the option to go elsewhere.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Texas State provides many housing opportunities for its students. Each dorm has its own design and sub-culture, giving students an opportunity to find the best fit for them. Their dorms also range in price, allowing for the accommodation of every budget. One drawback is that not all dorms are located close to classrooms, but that's to be expected on a large campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Many people show up and it's free to students.

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.
