4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is a major part of campus life, however I did not participate in a typical fraternity/sorority. The fraternity I joined in undergrad was a co-ed Academic fraternity.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Our football team has excelled tremendously the past few years, which has allowed the school to rebuild and redesign the football stadium. However, football is not the only focus in the athletic program. Both male/female sports are very popular on campus including baseball, softball, girls/boys basketball and golf.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Great education, beautiful campus and fun environment for sure! I received my Bachelor's Degree here, and decided to return for Graduate School! Couldn't think of a better place to receive my Master's Degree!

Health & Safety: Crimes occur but not all the time. Just be aware of your surroundings and don't walk alone, especially at night, if at all possible. Utilizes Bobcat Bobbies.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class sizes are pretty large when taking general core classes, but as long as you attend class and take decent notes, you should be fine. It's extremely important to utilize RateMyProfessor. I learned this the hard way by taking a professor I wish I wouldn't have.

Athletics: I don't know too much about the athletics at Texas State. I have seen a lot of school spirit when football or basketball season is coming up, and I know tailgating is a big event before a game. I have also seen students get excited for other athletic events, though not to the same degree. There are a lot of club sports, like Quidditch, that I have seen coordinated very well and the players and supporters always seem to enjoy it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas State has been really great so far. They have a lot of programs and advisors to help freshman adjust to college life and learn how to use all of the amenities around campus. It is a bigger campus, but they provide shuttles that are dependable and easy to use. All of the professors that I have had so far have been very knowledgeable about their subject, but if you are struggling, they have places like the writing center and math labs with staff to help you out.

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.
