4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I want to review the social atmosphere. It's easy to find great networks

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is very expensive in San Marcos and many of the apartments are inconveniently far away from the university. However, I know that closer ones are being built currently.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Alot of resteruants are expensive and I wish they had more healthy options but they're honestly pretty typical to any other city so I can't complain.

4 College Senior

Administration: I think they are very helpful and affective!

Scholarships: The Fasfa did all the work for me! It is kind of difficult to find scholarships I wish our Financial aid office had advisors that would help you find and apply for them. But they try to be as helpful on the phone when you have a question as possible!

4 College Senior

Party Scene: I think the party scene has both a positive and negative impact. It's a great way to bond with other peers that are currently living similar lives to your own but it can also be destracting from school work which is why we're all here.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: I wish there were more healthy options that were actually included in the meal swipes and not twice as expensive as the unhealthy food. I also don't understand why the healthy places to eat are open less hours than the fastfood ones. It's really inconvenient for students who want to choose healthy options.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I think it should be mandatory for all students to live on campus for their first year of college! It's a great way to adjust into being on your own and the college lifestyle. You're right on campus 24/7 making it easier to get to classes and get involved in social events, there's such a sense of community and a great way to make tons of friends and develop a sense of school spirit and unity and the housing process is fairly easy!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus yet, but from what I heard some apartments are better then others, but much more costly.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food off campus, is just like the food from back home. Its great that we do get great deals for being a student sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are very strict about alcohol being in the dorm or drugs being used in dorm.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid ran over very smoothly my fall semester. They would say what I needed and I would get it done.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties here are great, I haven't been to one where everyone got in trouble or a fight broke out.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall are great here, the Den should be cleaner though that's probably the only one I don't like as much.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is the best here. All the girls get a long here just fine. I never liked the showers, but I still work with it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: if you have a car it is much better

1 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: From what I hear it sucks

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: It is getting better and better by the semester

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.
