5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is so much to do at Texas State and you are bound to find a party or something to do every single day of the week. Although this can be a bad thing when it comes to trying to focus on your grades, Texas State is anything but boring! You have the square, apartment parties, frat parties, rager parties, and even buses that will come to pick you up and bring you to 6th street or Cowboys in San Antonio

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I've had the time of my life partying at Texas State! It's a great way to meet a bunch of people or just have fun with friends you already have! I can guarantee you that there is a least one party going on Wednesday-Saturday at Texas State and even sometimes during other days of the week! Frat parties are especially popular amongst the younger crowd of women and you can find anyone of all ages at an apartment party!

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are so many different types of groups on campus and the school itself is very diverse. You'll definitely find someone with a similar mind set to yours which makes Texas State so great. Even the Greek community on campus is diverse and accepting towards others

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: For the most part Texas State is a pretty safe campus.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I haven't had too much experience working with alumni or recruiters but overall Texas State has been very helpful with graduation plans and preparation for the future.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus but from what I can see the dorms are very nice and a nice environment to live in while focusing on your studies.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Personally I have never been attracted to "greek life" but I have several friends who love it and are huge advocates. The idea of it seems very interesting but it has never been something that grasped my attention.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am not super athletic but the facilities are very nice. We also obtain a lot of school spirit which is very evident when football games come around!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Texas State is the best thing that has ever happened to me. The professors are passionate, students are focused yet friendly, and the environment is amazing. The whole town of San Marcos is so positive.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports I can honestly say were not something I was interested in when I began, nor am I now however a large amount of the student body are sports fanatics. The games get packed with students going to support and simply let loose watching our friends play. Fans can get so die hard to the point were you see the whole school wearing one color and one color only for days at a time. Even I have started attending the games due to all the hype I hear and see among my peers. Although sports wasn't my cup of tea, weight training is which that I can say I am very proud of my campus's training facilities. Top of the line equipment although some might be aged a few it never takes away from the quality of it. The dumbells are well maintained, the equipment gets wiped down frequently to prevent any bacteria spread (simple common curtesy) and the room is well lighted, which means for any potential bodybuilder or Instagram poster good lighting is essential.

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school has been summarized in one word amazing. From the apartment the school told me about, to the extra-curricular activities,life was a never ending experience. The classes although every challenging but still so very enjoyable, giving me a large plateform for all kinds of networking as well as creating lifetime friendships. What makes my school so unique would be the huge amount of variety of students the school has. I know many colleges have all kinds of students (different shapes and sizes) but this school in my opinion has the most talented, most creative, and the most proudest students I have ever seen. My favorite experiences I have had at this college was being able to try out all of the different clubs students have organized, from clubs that help better your education to harry potter clubs the variety never stopped amazing me. Allowing me to simply make so many friends and molding me into the person I am to this day.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Student involvement for athletic events could be better.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There could not be a better college for students to attend.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school constantly gives us alerts about safety and security of the various things happening around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus housing and residential life made it easy for me to connect and meet new people, however when issues would arise such as work orders, and room mate issues, they were slow to respond.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not apart of greek life, but some of the people I've met that are in it are very rude and snobby towards others. Greek life members tend to do worse at school than non greek.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: All the facilities that are open for students to use are great, however there is not much "team spirit" so to speak for students to go out and go watch games

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the atmosphere of the school and how easy they've made it for me to meet new people. It's a great school for my major, and the location is another bonus for my major. I've had a lot of new experiences that never could've happened if I went anywhere else. I love the faculty as well.

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.
