3 College Senior

Party Scene: I don't really go out much but I do know frats host a lot of parties during the weekend, especially at the beginning of the semester for their rush. The square is practically walking distance from the campus. However, if you are underage then i wouldn't even try going to the square because they are super stick! That's why most underage students go to 6th street which is only like a 30 min drive.

Administration: I don't know much about our school police besides that they are sticklers on parking and are not afraid of giving people parking tickets!

Campus Quality: There is Greek life, organizations with Greek letters (more like smaller sororities/frats that are concentrated on a certain topic. ex: religion, community service, social, etc.) organizations that aren't like frats, there's intramural sports for spring and fall, there's club teams which is a step above intramural and a step below varsity level. There is a river that goes through our campus and that is where everyone hangs out. You'll also find a lot of people at our rec center.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: There are a lot of different organizations, it's a great way to get involved. There are many programs that happen almost everyday and the school makes sure to keep you up to date with all the different events by emailing schedules.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my school. So much school pride from everyone and so many opportunities to get involved! A LOT of organizations to choose from, it's hard not to find one for you. I transferred into TXST and wish I had just came here my freshman year.

4 College Freshman

Technology: I was expecting to have to carry my laptop all around campus, I was glad to see that I had no need to. The library has more than enough computers for the normal flow of students.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I barely hear any of drugs at the school. Alcohol is not very visible, its mostly just chatter.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am a Non-Greek so I'm not really affected by them. they do however influence much of the activities here at Texas State.

4 College Freshman

Weather: This university is pretty close to home so the weather is not so different. I love the warm weather and short winters.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm still trying to finish my core at this point in time, however the workload so far has not been as heavy as I expected it to be.

Academics: The professors here at the school have been pretty awesome. It could just be my luck but I have not had a professor that I considered to be unfair or lazy. Most see, very passionate and interested into their field of study.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school has met most of my expectations and I hope for my experiences here at Texas State to get even richer.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: At first, the food was awesome and it felt as if we had so many options to choose from. However, as the year progressed the food here began to feel repetitive and unappealing.

4 College Freshman

Administration: This school allows you to the things you want to do without going overboard. Yes, we are limited but not the extent that it would feel as if we were in high school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I love our schools recreational building. I feel like the rec center is very up to date and offers many programs to stay active. Another pretty awesome thing is the Christmas lights the school's organizations help set up at the park. It looks like something of the movies.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I love this place at the lair where students can play pool and ping pong. It really makes it feel like college. There's also a room in which students can go in and just rest and sleep.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm currently not over the legal age of drinking and it seems as if drinking is the only thing there is to do in this city. Due to this fact I don't go out too often except for the occasional dinner and a movie.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never been concerned for my safety. Even on my walks from the library to my dorm at late hours.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: In my experience it has been a very confusing process. I did not get any financial aid this school year.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I do not usually utilize the transportation offered here.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I'm considered a minority, however, my feelings here do not reflect the statistics. Very diverse campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: I'm from Texas, so I am used to the "bipolar" weather. It does not affect me much because I know I can't change it.

3 College Senior

Local Area: There is definitely a bar/clubbing culture at Txstate

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Pretty bland most of the time with many chain restaurants with few healthy options. Some dining halls have mediocre salad options

3 College Senior

Diversity: There are many similar people on Texas State campus,

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.
