2 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is horrible on campus because spots fill up fast and its just a hassle to have a car unless your leaving campus.

Scholarships: I should have listen to everyone when they said to apply for financial aid early because it is a hassle to do last minute.

Administration: The honor code at this school is very important. Parking is another big thing on campus, students get tickets very often.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The social life is great at Texas State University. Everyone is very friendly and outgoing, although like every school there are a few stuck-up not so nice people. The students tend to be very friendly especially at parties. This is one of the main reasons why I chose this school because of how friendly and accepting people were. There is a group of friends for everybody no matter what background they are from.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is not the best. There have been a few robberies/thefts around campus and it does tend to worry the students. The police does their best to try to catch the suspects. Other than that the safety and health on campus is fine.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have always been interested in science and anything that has to do with the human body. I would choose the major again if i had to. My career goals are to graduate with a Bachelor's in Biology, then proceed to enter a Physician's Asst. program in Texas. Once I have entered one of the programs I will obtain a Master's degree. I have always wanted to work with children so my goal is to work at a hospital with children in need.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus dining is great. There is always something to eat no matter what you are craving. The are two buffets located on campus, they both offer a variety of food. There is plenty of late-night options as well.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was a bit difficult, but i received the financial aid i needed. When calling the financial aid office, one must call in the morning if not the waiting time will take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I can say from personal experience that intramural/club sports are a pretty big deal on campus. Many students participate in these, including myself. The athletic facilities are great! Since being fit is a huge deal on campus, when not in class students can be found at the rec. The rec offers many activities like zumba classes, swimming, boxing, and many more. The students support the varsity sports by announcing the next game all over campus; students show up to the tailgates and games no matter the weather.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Although the dorm I currently live in is a bit old, I love the social atmosphere. Everyone in the building gets along and the student council of the building always has some sort of activity going on. The location of the building is perfect, it is close to town yet close to the majority of my classes.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Texas State has a huge fan base most students participate or support all of the different sporting events.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school. I love all of the different activities and stuff to do. My favorite experience so far has been laser tag at LBJ, and homecoming.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: the dinning halls are pretty good. the menu is always available to see online and is always a little different. there aren't really a whole lot of different ways to use meal plans or dining dollars you can only get different foods with them and so if you have a lot left over you are kind of stuck because they only roll over one semester.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I get along with a lot of different people. Generally everyone is very nice and easy to talk to and be around.

4 College Junior

Administration: I am thankful for the strictness on campus so I feel safe on campus anytime something happens we are alerted promptly and effectively through email.

3 College Junior

Majors: i do not currently have one but i dont have any concerns about finding one when it comes to time. it is all about networking and i havent haqd any problems with that so far.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love my program. I am a theater education major and i enjoy it very much. there is always stuff going on to participate in and the curriculum is easy to follow. this past semester our new theater building was finished and it is fantastic. there are lot of different ways to get internship and job opportunities and all of the teachers are very helpful to find different things.

5 College Junior

Transportation: There is a bus that goes all over San Marcos for Texas Stat students that is very hand and reliable. Everything is relatively close though so walking, riding a bike, or skateboard is a reliable way around as well.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: There is always so much to do and see on campus with a wide variety of things to participate in. The Rec center is huge and some of the machines actually work to power the building itself. The LBJ student center always has activities to do and see and the library offers not only a place to study but a place to relax during finals week, because they bring thaerpy dogs in to lighten the mood.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: I LOVE the atmosphere of the campus. I live on campus and there are a number of things within walking distance for students to do and have fun with.There are hammocks scattered around campus that are kinds secretive and hidden

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: You are advised to not partake but people do I don't really notice it and do not partake but no one treats me differently because I don't.

4 College Junior

Technology: a personal computer is helpful but not absolutely necessary. There are plenty of computers and labs available. If you do use the school connection it is reliable and reasonably fast.

4 College Freshman

Technology: There are many computer labs, with brand new computers with great internet acess

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.
