3 College Sophomore

4 College Freshman

Athletics: At Texas State there is so many school spirit. I guarantee you will have fun at a sport event.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's many restaurants that offer students discount. Just make sure you have your ID at all times.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Texas state cares a lot about their students and only want the school community to be safe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: My main issue with the campus food was there wasn't enough healthy options. I mostly ate at wild greens.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus, the experience helped me make friends faster. The dorm I was living was in the middle of the campus and it wasn't difficult getting to class on time. My only issue was parking, because even if i had a residents permit it was difficult to park close to my dorm.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: not the best. small town

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It could be better, but definitely better than every other campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Some of the food prepared is okay. But its nothing to drool over.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Some apartments are total crap. Look for houses to rent in quiet neighborhoods.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few unique places but mostly chain restaurants.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Not fun, everybody underage. More likely to get arrested than have a good time.

3 College Junior

Administration: I haven't had too many interactions with them.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: They automatically choose the worst rates for you. You have to call multiple times to have your aid adjusted to what is correct, necessary, and cheapest if you get a loan.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: I try not to eat on campus unless I'm desperate and have a short amount of time.

2 College Junior

Administration: I have never had any issues with these type of occurrences, but I receive emails about them all the time so I believe they are pretty strict on things like this.

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.
