Campus Housing: I don't live on campus

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life helps to involve students. I'm not involved in Greek life but I do see its presence but they don't make me feel like an outsider.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the beautiful environment and the students are really helpful and friendly. Teachers are great. I would choose it again because I love the dance program.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I see a lot of student involvement and school spirit for the varsity teams. I myself plan on joining a spirit team.

2 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, this school has been so amazing. Everything I've learned has been extremely helpful, both academically and in general.

Health & Safety: I feel safe knowing that we have the emergency towers on campus and they can get to us at any time! we have the bobcat bobbies which can take us to our dorms at night so we don't walk ourselves, or the night drivers that can take us after 12 to the apartments. We also get notices and emails of any suspicious behaviors!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of my professors really love what they are teaching, they have office hours but are always wiling to meet outside of those times if you have conflicts. They give many sources to help if you are having trouble and many examples and study tips!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas State has many connections to the degrees they offer! Many majors offer internships while still in school, and many majors require and internship! There are also club toward your major that you can join that will even further tour connections to the field you wish to go into.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I hate my housing only because I have one of the oldest dorms and the size of my dorm is tiny! and with two girls its hard finding your own space with eh room being so small!!!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am personally in a sorority and I love it. The process of rushing is just like a job interview. Basically there are two parts, Just like a job interview they have an interview with each and every girl asking them questions to see if they would make a great asset to the sorority. Sorority rushing takes it one step further, because they have you meet and greet the girls to see if you get along with the rest of the girls. After that they try to observe if you meet all the qualities that are in their purpose and pillars. Basically the same as trying to get a job. The interviewer will try and see what you can offer the company and if you stand for the same issue the company does as well. I love being greek, meeting new people and having a community of girls to share good and bad news too! Always knowing someone is there for you!! Also being able to represent the school with the things your organization has done is a pretty special feeling too! Being able to make memories that will live on forever, and becoming apart of the Texas State history!

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I honestly have not been to many sporting events, aside from tailgates and a few football games, but the tailgates are always great! You get to meet fun people and different companies are always trying to get their name out there and give out apt of free stuff!! Its just a fun way to relax after a ling stressful week!!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am currently a freshmen, and Texas State University has really opened my eyes to the world. It has shown me that college makes you feel that you are alone, but there are always clubs and people just hanging around that you can talk to. Making friends is easy especially when you live on campus. It is a big school but has a small town feel. I've learned that high school is a lot different and that studying is not something you can do the night before like in high school. I love the environment and people here they are so helpful in my school work and everyone here wants us to succeed and graduate! I love the how college really has taught me to be more independent and made me realize the responsibilities of adulthood! Paying rent and having enough money for school and extra on the side. In all the experience at Texas State is an experience that is truly life changing!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's good as long as you pick the right professors.

Overall Experience: I haven't used the career center yet.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's been an okay experience. The bexar hall is where I stayed, but I feel as if the RA's treated us like kids.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's a great way to social network, but I don't think its worth all the money.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I don't attend the sporting events and my friends don't act like it's a big thing either.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's in a great small town with amazing people to meet. It has a huge campus, but has that small town feel to it. The people you meet in classes make the experience even better.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel genuinely safe. There are many safe areas.

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.
