5 College Sophomore

Diversity: When you walk on this campus, no two people are the same. I have friends of all different racial diversities, economic backgrounds, political and relgional beliefs, along with sexual orientation.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: It is usually sunny during the school day. We usually have a good about of rain storms, but a lot less than most schools.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is a great variety of food on campus. Almost anything you want, except BBQ.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: I love it in San Marcos. You can always find something to do whether it is going on a hike, bowling, or going to the square.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: On the Texas State University San Marcos campus we have a number of computer labs and on campus printing. If I cannot print at home I know I can at the school.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love off campus dinning their is so many places to chose from, and the prices are good to so even on a budget me and my friends are able to go off and eat something different every now and than if we wanted too.

5 College Freshman

Technology: I haven't had a problem with computer use, I have my own lap top but im mostly in the library using their computers so you don't really need your own if you cant afford it. Computers are always available and wifi is always on around campus so I really have no problem connecting when I need it on my phone or laptop.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Our dinning halls at our campus are great they have different kinds of food everyday and for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also they serve healthy food so it doesn't make you feel as youre going to part of the freshmen 15. Overall I love our dinning halls here at Texas State.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are many different kinds of guys here at Texas State. The diversity makes it easy to meet many different kinds of people.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Overall, campus strictness hasn't been too hard follow.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love it here at Texas State! I did not expect my freshman year to go as well as it is right now! I would never regret my decision to come here!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants close to campus, and in walking distance from my dorm. It is great to get off campus sometimes and get food, and it's easy to do.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The rec. center is absolutely wonderful! Overall school sprit for the sports is great too! I have had some of the best nights here attending games.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I did worry about walking around campus late at night, but I haven't felt the least bit safe since being here. The police do try to go out of their way to help you, and there are services to call if you do feel uncomfortable. They keep the student body informed to, as I get regular emails of local crimes and general safety.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I feel like everyone here is very accepting of all different statuses and backgrounds. All of the people I have met are all every different from one another, myself included, but we all work together!

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors here seem so interested and invested in helping you learn and excel as a student. There is also a wide variety of classes to choose from if you decide to further your studies in English too. I am very impressed!

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love the English program here so far. The workload is enough to keep me busy but, because I love it, it hasn't been too bad so far. The English department is wonderful too; they are so helpful and make learning and studying unique!

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The area right around campus is wonderful! There are many places to go and a lot of things to do. A few miles off of campus, though, it's harder to find things until you either go to Austin or San Antonio. There is a wonderful outlet mall though!

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The performing arts here have been amazing! I absolutely love the program and, on another note, the student center has been extremely helpful. The campus overall is so beautiful. I absolutely love it here!

4 College Freshman

Majors: My university has a great English program, one that does offer many internships. I do have a concern about finding a internship that will also allow me to continue to be able to afford college, since interns do get paid less, if at all.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy with the program at my school. The professors are wonderful, and they are just as excited as I am to be teaching this field as much as I am about choosing it as my major. I do hope to continue learning, though I do have concerns about finding a job once I graduate. I do know that earning a living as a writer is hard, especially as a professional writer/author, which is what I hopefully want to become.

4 College Freshman

Technology: I have hardly had many problems with computers or printing on campus. The library is close and easy to get to, and with labs on more than one floor, finding an open computer isn't a problem. Maybe only right before and after classes!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Most of the dining halls are centrally located and very close to my dorm, which is nice. Though, most are not open on the weekends, making choices very limited.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally am not in a sorority, but my friend is, and she seems to enjoy it a lot! It seems like a really nice, tight community.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Turning in my one scholarship was easy, but I don't apply for many of the scholarships that my school offers and would help my financial situation.

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.
