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.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They are always offering internships at Texas State and I am excited for when I finally find one that fits me.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I rather live in an apartment, but that is just me.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am just starting in the community here, not very aware of what Greeks do really, and still dont understand the purpose of a Greek or Sorority.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not big on sports, but we do have some good teams in the campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have only been here for a semester, but so far things are looking well.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Recently there has been a lot of crime on and near campus. We were notified with the events and it seems that UPD has been taking steps to prevent incidents. As far as personal safety it just depends on where you are at what time of day. I feel pretty safe for the most part. I never felt as if I had to worry about crime until some recent frequent incidents. Other than that I think campus is pretty safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience so far with my courses and professors has been pretty great! I have honestly loved the personalities of the professors that I have had and always felt like they wanted me to succeed in their class. My courses taught me a lot and were challenging for the most part. This university offers a ton of courses for anything you could possibly want to learn about. I had a mixture of small and large classes and never had an issue of focusing in either.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The value of a degree from this school really depends on the degree itself and the career the student is looking to have. I've heard many stories from older friends about getting internships and jobs straight after graduation. I have visited the career center and they are very helpful!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm specifically is probably one of the best on campus. I absolutely love it! My RA's are super sweet as well as the RA's who work the front desk. There's always people downstairs playing pool and hanging out and I think it's a really run and social environment.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I've heard good and bad things about our Greek life. I've heard a couple horror stories about specific fraternities. Most Greeks are respected for the most part depending on the specific sorority or fraternity. There's a really pretty street where all the sorority houses are located near campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Typically a big part of college is football. At my university football isn't as huge of a deal as most other schools. Students attend games but our attendance for sure could be increased. Our team doesn't win a whole lot but students and faculty still support them a lot. From what I've seen, school spirit differs. I've met some pretty peppy people when it comes to the fight song, while some don't even know the words.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors that I have had so far in my college career have been incredible! I can really tell they love what they do and the subjects they teach. The town is absolutely gorgeous and has a really fun environment. My school is unique because it has a river that runs through campus which provides a nice relaxing get away when you're not studying or in class. If I could go back and time and do this all over again I would choose this school again and again and probably sooner than I did because I love it so much!!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am a college freshman. So far I have had a pretty good experience with my school, there are many resources on campus that I take full advantage of and everyone like professors and advisors are extremely helpful.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I have heard many great things about our campus athletics but unfortunately I have not been able to attend any of them due to working full time after going to school full time.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I love how serious our campus takes things such as campus crime and our personal safety. There were many times last semester that as soon as something would happen they would send us texts and emails informing us on what happened and ensuring that we would be safe. I really appreciated that.

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.
