3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Since I am not part of the Greek life, I really do not have any kind of experience with them. I see them around campus, but do not have the extra resources to join their groups.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The student recreational center is amazing.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Texas State University is an amazing institution because I am able to live at home and no incur any additional debt towards housing. They have an amazing transportation system which I take advantage of it every day.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Clean. I was at Chautaqua and had places to study and hang out. Always felt safe. Great RAs.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like being a bobcat, I feel that the school will give you the tools needed for life beyond college. It just depends on the effort you put in.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There seems like there is a stigma about how TSU students must be a bunch of partiers due to the schools reputation over the years. But I must say that I've never been too a TSU student party since ive transferred here. Could be because I'm older and prefer other activities or I just don't have friends!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never had a problem on campus in my experience, I have gotten email alerts via school security about some bad things that have happened to fellow students.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't really know all that much about the greek life at TSU, however I do recognize that there are a lot of students who are apart of these organizations. I don't believe it is their sole purpose to throw parties, maybe for some.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Transferring from a small college in Illinois, the shear size of the TSU campus was almost overwhelming. However after some getting used too I really started to enjoy the big time school atmosphere. There are always new people you will meet and create connections with. Also being an hour south of my family in Austin is a benefit as well. So I would choose TSU again if I had the opportunity too.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football at TSU is widely attended by the student body, however I have never attended a game myself, the immense amount of traffic and people around the stadium on game day makes it safe too assume that there is a fair amount of school spirit involved with athletics.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the dorms at my school. I went in there thinking I'd rarely talk to people but now I hang out regularly with a group of about 10-12 people.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Its nothing special in my opinion. In my experience with people involved in sororities and fraternities are pretty even, some are chill and others are the opposite.

Athletics: We aren't the strongest in the sports realm, I believe our strongest sports are track and golf.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its great, its a very exciting and fun experience. Lots of great opportunities available, and excited to see whats in store for the future. It could be better in some ways, for example the class selection process and the exploration time. There is no time for exploration of classes and other areas of study, if you try to explore you fall behind.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I guess I'm just not the party type and that is mainly all there is to do there other than school work.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was granted federal work study, applied to 5 different places online at Jobs4Cats like instructed and heard nothing, fomr anyone.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm sorry, I HATE my dorms. I didn't even get to choose where I reside. PLUS, it is at the lowest part of campus.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: We do not have the best athletes, sadly. Lol. We do Have a pretty supportive fan group however.

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.
