Health & Safety: Their is a very good police and safety service set up on campus. There is even a night service where if you are feeling unsafe you can call the police and safety service office and they will escort you to your chosen destination on campus by either walking you or driving you in a golf cart.

Campus Housing: One of the best dorms on campus that I lived in was Gaillardia Hall. It was clean, spacious, and contained study rooms. The social atmosphere was great because the RA's held many events such as tag nights, video game night, football game get togethers.

Greek Life: Most Greek students are involved in many community affairs and support many causes through events and stands on campus and off.

Athletics: The Athletic facilities on campus are great! The Recreation Center on campus has an array of machines that target and isolate specific muscle groups. Their is also many cardio centered machines and an indoor track on the second floor of the recreation building.

Overall Experience: Texas State University has a very diverse group of students from all walks of life that add to the rich culture and have a eagerness to further their learning experience. Their is also a vast amount of career resources we as students can take advantage of such as aid in preparation for an interview/speech, or resume/cover letter assistance. I would most definitely choose Texas State University again if I could do it all over becuase the environment set up for students allows for growth and advancement in knowledge of your chosen field/major.

Overall Experience: I love the education aspect of this school. The professors are driven to teach in a variety of ways in order to reach every type of learning. Class size is a little daunting to the first time freshman, but its easily managed after your first semester. Keep in mind that registration is key in order to receive the most out of your degree/education.

Health & Safety: Safety around campus is great. We have campus police available at all times and bobcat bobies are around to take you around the campus with a buddy after dark. Sexual assault arises a whole new area of safety, which is difficult to protect against, but I do feel the campus is doing everything in their power to eliminate the threat.

Campus Housing: The rooms were too small to share. I was constantly bumping into my roommate. However, all of the dorms are close to classes!

Athletics: Although we are a D1 school, we often don't have characteristics of D1 athletics. Our games won't always be packed, we won't always win. However, tailgating and fellowship on game days are always a tradition.

Overall Experience: You really cannot go wrong with a city placed in between Austin and San Antonio. There are plenty of activities that are available. Also, having great professors that are passionate about education makes a student feel right at home.

Greek Life: Some of the parties get too out of hand, or there are just excessive amounts of them. Not all Greek life follows this, but most do, especially the fraternities. They should use their power to benefit the student's education and not JUST the parties.

Overall Experience: Besides the grueling assignments and torturous walks to and from each class and my dorm, this campus has a lot to offer. It is full of diversity and numerous opportunities to benefit your everyday life, as well as long term.

Greek Life: I'm not really big on buying your way into a brotherhood or partying so I don't really see the point in Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Just like any other school, there are going to be some classes with really boring professors but I feel like Texas State has a really good community of professors who actually want to make class interesting. The school does a really good job at hiring the right professors who are actually going to inspire students. I feel like the quality of the professor determines the quality of the course. If you have a boring instructor, you will most likely see the course in a negative way. There is a wide variety of classes to choose from at Texas State which is great when comparing different professors. The class size ranges from about 20-350 students in each class. Smaller classes are great because you are less nervous when it comes down to asking for help.

Overall Experience: I have heard that employers are not really looking for which school you went to but they would be proud if they saw Texas State on the application. We have so many career fairs and other opportunities for graduation students to find jobs right away. The faculty cares about their students and truly wants them to succeed.

Health & Safety: Every once in a while we get an email about a crime on campus and it is either a sexual assault or someone was robbed. It is rare when we get those emails so they always shock the students. I feel safe on campus and never see anything suspicious going on. Our police department on campus work very hard to make sure everyone is safe and aware of what is going on.

Campus Housing: We have a lot of different options for students to choose from. I chose Blanco (which at the time was the furthest dorm from main campus, they now have dorms that are further) and the community was great. The only issues were that it was so far from everything else (but you could take the bus) and that you had to get there before a certain time in order to get a parking spot relatively close to the building. We had our own bathroom which was so nice even though it cost a little bit more. It was very easy and organized to pick my housing.

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.
