2 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are crimes that occur, mostly muggings. My bike has been stolen twice. Some of it is student on student violence, but I am proud to say that sexual assault is a non issue.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have not lived on campus.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: I am against the elitism institutions and how they operate, especially greek systems. Texas State is a good 'ol boy school in this manner.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: San Marcos is amazing. I am a transfer student, and luckily I was able to fall into some real people. I'm 30, and I can't say i'm impressed with the youth culture lately. There are a lot of meatheads, but other then that Texas State has a lot going for it. The arts program seems to be very prestigious. Whether that translates to the resume remains to be seen.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The football program needs a lot of work! Get it together fellas. I'm in the arts school, and have no interest in the other sports other than football.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is not much crime at Texas State that I know of. If you feel uncomfortable walking alone on campus or get lost, you can call the Bobcat Bobbies and they will pick you up and take you to your dorm/car.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, I've had a great experience at Texas State so far! The atmosphere is great, the professors are great, the student body is great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in College Inn which is pretty old and outdated, but still really enjoyed it. The social atmosphere is great, everyone is really nice and friendly. RA's are always making events for people to interact and hangout. Super convenient location!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know much about greek life, but they do throw a lot of parties.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Coming to Texas State has been the best decision I've ever made. Great campus and great people! I love it here!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Texas State has met my expectations of a true college feeling! Best years of my life--- however the hardest work I've ever had to deal with, however it is so rewarding at the end of each semester once I see how it pays off and I'm closer to my degree.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Nothing fancy-- very old facilities, but doable. Texas State has however started building new dorms and those are very nice! However the few buildings they've built don't make nearly half of the housing, so for the most part the rest of the dorms are small, crammed, and ancient.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Athletic facilities are built beautifully, however the teams are below par-- coming from a highly competitive high school who won every game I think Texas State is just merely okay. They're not terrible and they have a high school spirit and fan base. Obviously dependent on the sport the support is very different, however they're still just "okay"

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus police is very active and can be easily reached

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Never been to career center, but all of my friends who are close to graduating have attended and found jobs.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Compared to other schools in the Austin area, Greek Life at Texas State is not big at all, however it still slides as average. Definitely known for parties, however will not make a big impact if you don't join. It's a great way to make friends, however there are plenty of opportunities to make life-long friends without it.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I really don't see much of that

Health & Safety: I always feel safe, I consider Texas state and San Marcos my home and a big role playing in that decision was how Safe and secure I am when I am on campus

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are good but you have to do a lot of self teaching if you want to make A's

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The amount of successful alumni speaks for itself really, this school prepares you for not only the work place but gives great people skills and I think makes people more out of their comfort zone because everyone is so friendly. This school helps with many academic training skills to ensure good workers straight out of college.

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.
