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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's really tough to receive financial aid. It shouldn't be difficult when you have a 3.3 gpa but it's still hard for me.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The den has great food and many health choice options. the dining halls are great because it's all you can eat for one swipe. Chick fil a and other food places at lbj are often crowded and is truly overrated.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: a dorm is a dorm, it's nothing much. But by going in the dorm the first year, you get to experience the true college experience and it can be fun. Great way to meet new friends!

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.

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.
