4 College Sophomore

Technology: there are a lot to choose from, i just prefer macs.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I love where i live, except the fact that it is away from everything, and parking for friend that come to visit sucks! i do not ride the bus but if i wanted to it is very convenient it comes right to the front lobby.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: The computers at Texas State are amazing especially the availability of them. There is tons of computers labs that one can just walk into and get on a computer and work on assignments and print.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Professors are not strict when it comes to attendance. They will give you extra credit points on your grade if you attend all class days.

3 College Junior

Transportation: There are bus loops all around campus and the city as well as a bus that goes to San Antonio and Austin, but the bus is usually packed and wait on them talks longer than just walking to class. The afternoon is generally the best time to ride the bus because it isn't as crowded. There is also an App the gives you an ETA for your bus stop so you know how long you have to wait and whether or not you should just walk.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: At Texas State there are countless ways to get involved and make the most of your college experience! For me, the Loud Crowd is the student organization that I stay involved in. Its a great way to be social on campus and to just be involved! I am also a part of the Honor College which is a benefit in itself and it comes with tiny perks along the way! Texas State is unique in the face that a river runs through campus where people go for fun and for class purposes. The atmosphere is welcoming and students are always reaching out to others! If I could do it all over again with what I know now, I would go to Texas State straight out of high school!

3 College Junior

Weather: Well Texas weather is pretty unpredictable at times, and when it rains it really comes down. Most of the time rain slows the campus down due to traffic and going from class to class can be a bit of a hassle if you forgot your umbrella. Other then rain, weather at Texas State is great! Nice and hot in the summer for the river that runs through our campus and not to cold in the winter, just bring a coat and your good to go!

4 College Junior

Technology: There are a lot of computer labs on campus, most of which you can print from and there are rarely complications with the connections. Very good overall.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The one thing that is unique to Texas State is that there is a river that runs through the campus that stays 72 degrees all year around. After a hard day of school you can just jump in the river go for a nice relaxing swim or just lay and tan with some friends. This school is extremely active there are always people outside and enjoying cool Texas nights.

5 College Junior

Majors: The process of getting into the program was simple I didn't encounter any problems.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Here in Texas the heat is extremly hot. Walking a short distance can get you dripping in sweat. There are also many large hills and stairs you have to walk on which only makes the heat feel unbarable. When the fall and winter season comes around many people enjoy wearing their hoodies and warm clothes with style. It is much cooler but it does tend to rain more during the winter season. Cold and rainy weather do not mix.

5 College Junior

Majors: I love my program just because its not a big department like communications. The advisors know you and they help you with choosing classes. They don't come and serve you with a silver platter but they have tons of information regarding anything in the field and are more than willing to answer any questions you might have.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am happy with my program because it is interdisciplinary and I am able to get a very well rounded education. However, I have noticed that with my major competition is tough and you have to submerse yourself into world news nevertheless, I would do it all over again if I had to only maybe with a little more preparation.

3 College Junior

Majors: I haven't really looked into internships yet however, if there was an internship offered it would more than likely be in San Antonio or Austin which could pose a problem transportation, time management etc.. I would like to do an internship if possible and hopefully one that allows me to gain great experience.

5 College Junior

Local Area: San Marcos is a small town but has so much to offer. It has everything you need, awesome people, great night life and of course tubing. The campus is beautiful and so are the people.

5 Recent Alumnus

Transportation: Excellent local and area (Austin to San Antonio) bus service. And if that doesn't get you where you want to go, Amtrak is in town and can take you all over the country! Town is small and is easy to navigate by car, bicycle or foot. Everyone does what works best for them!

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Texas State is really pushing to improve its athletic image and is doing an excellent job! School spirit and performance has significantly improved alongside major construction projects to get state-of-the-art athletic facilities.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: There are MANY MANY places to live off campus, sometimes just a short walk away. Otherwise, bus services are great. You can find anything to fit your budget and lifestyle in San Marcos.

4 College Junior

Majors: Throughout the business school, I have seen a lot of different internship opprotunities advertised so I know that when the time comes for me to start applying for internships, I can count on the advisors at the business school to help me out.

3 College Junior

Administration: I don't live on campus so I don't really know how security is.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking on campus is so difficult. The commuter lots are so far away from the buildings I have to go to for my classes and if I wanted to park close, I would have to pay $3 per hour. Riding the bus from my neighborhood is so much easier than trying to park on campus.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Texas State's student life on campus is great. There are tons of diffenrent dining halls, depending what you feel like eating and your meal plan. The library is 7 stories so you will always find a quiet place to study. The student recreation center is also huge, and always filled with people doing different activities. There are over 400 organisations at the school, so you are bound to find that you feel is more like you.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are really nice apartments here in San marcos. You just have to go on the hunt for one early so you will get the reasonable prices and deals. Because if you wait to long the prices will go up because there are no other choices. There is transportation from the apartments to the school by the tram bus. There is always security guards patroling the apartments incase of any suspicious action and for the students safety.

5 College Junior

Local Area: San marcos is a small town where we have the river surrounding us. Everything is so close and we are perfect distance from Austin and San Antonio for random weekend visits. We have the San marcos outlets as our mall, which is huge and amazing. There are always good prices at the stores. The locals attitude towards allt he students is always so nice. They dont mind sharing it with us, giving us a very "home" and welcoming feeling to their town.

Athletics: The Athletics at Texas State isn't famous, but they are moving up quickly! It's a good time to be at Tx State! It's not as difficult to get into as a bigger university but you are still going to get an awesome experience and be competitive.

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.
