5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas State has great faculty as well as the students. Everyone is helpful and willing to help you succeed and take the extra step to guide you to reach your goal.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Many people have asked me how I would rate Texas State and I have always said it's a 10 for me. My first year was challenging and very beneficial. The professors I had were all more than willing to give extra help if the students put in that little extra effort. In my opinion, it doesn't matter what college/university you chose, if you set goals and priorities, then you will be able to be successful.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being at Texas State for a year has been a great experience. The campus isn't too big but does allow you to have the 'college experience'. I have enjoyed every aspect of college as far as classes, meeting new people, and being able to have freedom and responsibilities. It does require you to work hard, as any college does, but you will be able to enjoy yourself.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I have loved my college experience! It is a beautiful campus and has the real college experience feel to it. The weather is pretty nice, although very hot in August and September, but with a good coat, you can get to class in the winter. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose my school again, the people I have met are life changing and the school's spirit makes the campus come alive.

Campus Food: Freshmen go into the start of college with the determination to not gain the "freshman 15", but with the extreme amount of unhealthy food compared to healthy food it is nearly impossible not to gain weight.

Campus Housing: It really just depends on which dorm you life in. I lived in Tower Hall and my room was small and semi gross while the rooms in Falls are ridiculously large and "fancy" for a freshmen dorm.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off-campus housing that is in relation to Texas State University - round rock. There are a few apartments near TSU, but they are in no way affiliated with TSU.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining usually included mostly fast food and chain restaurants.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The campus strictness at Texas State University is average.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: At the Round Rock campus of Texas State University, the meal options are very limited. It's vending machine snacks without the vending machine. A few options include sandwiches, burgers, and frozen meals (burritos). The frozen meals would be "ok," except paper plates and/or napkins are not provided to place your meals on in order to heat up in the microwave. Very limited variety of healthy food (only a few fruit plates available in the refrigerated section.) Foods mainly consist of chips, candy, ice cream, etc. If you don't bring your own food to class, you're going to pig out on junk food.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The financial aid process at Texas State University runs smoothly. Applying to FASFA early/on time speeds up the process, as well as creating an easy transfer of your financial aid.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Everything is as one would expect. Real life rules apply

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I play intramural soccer and it can be pretty competitive for those that are playing

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I'm personally moving into a 2 bedroom apartment and only paying around 500$. Most places will cost more for only 2 people but that is why there are plenty of choices

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Most of the parties always happen on Thursdays because most students don't have Friday classes

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the off campus food choices are fairly cheap, recognizing that they are in a college town

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Most of the food is great. There are plenty of options, and they change every day

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Just apply, and make sure you know all the information you need

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.
