4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The housing off campus has great variety. It allows students to decide on what type of housing they are most comfortable living in.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty involved on campus. It is a great opportunity for you to have more campus involvement and become a member of something that is bigger and has deeper meaning.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: We do not promote binge drinking but if you are going to drink then they would rather have you do it safely and responsibly.

3 College Junior

Administration: The strictness of campus is pretty good. All students are aware of what they can and cannot do. We are also a Non-smoking campus so that has had some positive effects along with it as well.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Us bobcats are sexy beasts.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid process went very smoothly. I did it all online and never once had to deal with going to the office on campus. Nearly all of my tuition, dining plan, and dorm were paid for through various grants and loans.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am constantly having to submit forms and emails to get everything taken care of.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Could have nicer places. They get old after a few times visiting. A lot of places are just too overwhelming and hot.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They are struck where they need to be. Campus police think of themselves to be of higher power than normal police officers.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Love the health center! However, crimes in the area have increased greatly in the past few months. (Mainly off campus or near campus)

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The sororities won't allow well known new ones come in and there are a ton of fraternities. Also, frays are constantly being kicked off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Everyone does some sort of drug but I haven't met anyone with a full blown problem.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Nothing special. Wanted to get out of there asap

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Never any spots and they fill up quickly

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Wish there were more places in town. I'm tired of eating the same stuff all the time.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: I work too much to really know how our school interacts with other local ones.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't pay too much attention to sports

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Parking sucks where ever you live. It would be nice if there were more actual houses to rent, but the fact that there are a lot of family and people who do not attend college living here makes it hard to find a landlord who will rent to college students.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It rains one day, bright and sunny the next. Texas weather is crazy in general

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The river is awesome. We have an awesome rec. huge library perfect for studying

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: It's a college town yet very close to big cities. Also, the river is a great amenity.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most people are very accepting of others

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: We just got zip cars this year. The shuttles have been getting better. I know we are short staffed on drivers and construction has been an issue.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: A lot of labs are full and you have to wait for a computer to open up. They just recently created a printing quota of 2500 pages.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: It's the thing we do the best. Bars are completely full Thursday-Saturday.

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.
