5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am currently a freshmen, and Texas State University has really opened my eyes to the world. It has shown me that college makes you feel that you are alone, but there are always clubs and people just hanging around that you can talk to. Making friends is easy especially when you live on campus. It is a big school but has a small town feel. I've learned that high school is a lot different and that studying is not something you can do the night before like in high school. I love the environment and people here they are so helpful in my school work and everyone here wants us to succeed and graduate! I love the how college really has taught me to be more independent and made me realize the responsibilities of adulthood! Paying rent and having enough money for school and extra on the side. In all the experience at Texas State is an experience that is truly life changing!

Campus Housing: It's been an okay experience. The bexar hall is where I stayed, but I feel as if the RA's treated us like kids.

Overall Experience: It's in a great small town with amazing people to meet. It has a huge campus, but has that small town feel to it. The people you meet in classes make the experience even better.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great because the resources are very close and walking distance apart. The dorm life is actually pleasing in the sense that it's a good opportunity to meet new people and make friends. Residential Leaders always have activities or events planned to get the students involved and interacting with one another. The cost covers the value and the worth of housing because they're really nice facilities. I think the only down side about dorms is that they either they don't have community kitchens except for one of the 6 or 7 dorms available.

Greek Life: Greek life at school are known for throwing a variety of fundraisers and community work, along with parties as well. There is a distinct difference between Greeks and Non-Greeks in the sense of their appearance, but don't treat each other differently. The typical sorority girls wear the top knot, big t-shirts, leggings, and white converse but can be just as nice as a non-greek girl. Fraternities had houses but sororities do not for some reason.

Athletics: Sports are a big part of our school especially basketball. Everyone shows up to the games and show their school spirit. Plowboys and the Purple Poo are among the most school spirited groups on campus and without them the school spirit would not be as great as it is now. Intramurals are also a big part of campus life and are supported just as much as sports. The stakes seem higher because the teams go against their friends at times and it becomes kind of a friendly competition. All in all, the athletic part of school is very valued here.

Overall Experience: It has been a pretty average experience, the education is great but not the best int he terms of my major. I wouldn't choose this school again because I decided to transfer to another school where my major has a better program. This school is unique in the sense that it's in a small town that holds a variety of traditions that have been around for decades. Overall the school is a great but just not made for me, which is why I'm transferring.

Health & Safety: Walking on campus alone at night os very scary because there is not adequate lighting in some areas.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Do your research on rate my professor and take good teachers for classes you expect to be more challenging for you.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas State is gaining more respect year by year.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Black Hall is by far the most social dorm, however don't expect to consistently have hot water for your showers of you live on hall A or B. They share one boiler room.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks are not respected at TXST, mostly by their own doing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love San Marcos and TXST.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Texas State for the most part is a safe campus, besides the parking garages where most assaults take place. But our University Police Department is always on watch and offer services to ensure people don't get attacked.

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.
