Drug Safety: Any drug use is prohibited on campus. Students may have it out of sight off campus, but on campus people use those vapor pens outside.

Party Scene: I don't get involved in the "nightlife", but it's definitely a common event among Texas State students to hang out at the bars on the square and have "rough" parties at various apartments. Midnight Rodeo in Austin, Texas, 30 minutes north, is also one of the most popular events among various groups of students. If you're not into partying and not into country dancing but you want somewhere to go at 2am, you can drive two minutes South on I-35 and get a delicious taco from Fuego Tortilla grill. During the winter, you can visit the lights at the park and attend events such as Sights and Sounds. Occasionally there are concerts at the river with well known artists.

Diversity: This school is very accepting of diversity. Christian organizations are extremely prominent however, but they are excepting of even non-Christians.

Academics: At Texas State, the workload is manageable, except for the occasional professor who assigns more work than others. Even in those cases though, the professors are very willing to answer all of your questions and encourage visits to their office hours. The registration process is not difficult as long as you prepare what classes you want to sign up for beforehand. The classes do not fill up right away, but once they are filled up it's hard to get added into them. A piece of advice is to register for the Honors College, which you can do any time of the year. It's relatively easy to get into and allows you to register for all of your classes early.

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe at Texas State University. If I am nervous about walking alone at night, there are services such as the Bobcat Buddies who will quickly drive a golf cart over to pick you up. Recently there have been cases of armed robberies on campus at night, so just like anywhere, it's important to employ safety precautions and use the buddy system.

Greek Life: Greek life is very prominent, but you do not need to be a part of is to feel included because there are an abundance of other organizations. I am not involved in Greek life, but I have witnessed the close bond that members share, especially through the music-affiliated Sororities and Fraternities. They do require time and money, but less so for the music ones. Greek life is VERY prominent at Texas State. It's a good school for those looking to be involved in Greek life and just as great for those who want group involvement in other ways.

3 College Junior

Athletics: You can sense the Bobcat pride upon entering Texas State University, but it's not the biggest or greatest school for those who want to attend a place that revolves around the football team. The events are fun to attend however, and although there is not a big reputation for winning, there is still a lot of support and you can tell that the students find excitement in the community and togetherness of attending events. Intramurals opportunities are also abundant in almost every sport, including our successful Unicycle Football team.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I personally do not know much about the sport teams but I do know that you will almost always find Texas State students in the stands cheering on our school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Texas State University has offered its students a well rounded education and college experience. The classes offered are interesting and always relevant. On campus there free movies, game nights, or other activities open to all students which I believe really add the the overall college experience. If I had the chance to do it all over I would still attend Texas State University. I am in the middle of my Junior year and I still enjoy this school.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most of the campus has different views, it's not conservative, but you have the few that are. As race goes there's a strong presence of one race and spots of other races.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: If you don't feel safe walking by yourself at night, you can call an escort and they'll take you were you need to go. They always have a the university police driving around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are a hit or miss. Either you get a nice one or you don't, there's no in between.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The rec is a good place to relieve stress

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There's a great atmosphere, only thing that needs more attention is the professors they hire in the science department.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Thankfully I haven't experienced this, but Texas state and MEN have really educated me and make me feel safe

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some professors are better than others just like everywhere

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm not really sure how to answer this

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing just depends on what hall you live in

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is an everyday thing for me

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports is fun at Texas State however it's not the most important

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.
