3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We've had some crazy things happen, it's pretty safe during the day. I would say do as less traveling by yourself at night. But there are ways to travel at night and be safe.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It was just really easy to get to food on campus and class, I plan on staying in a dorm maybe all 4 years.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have not joined greek life but my roommate was in a sorority, and it kind of took over her life which she enjoyed. I'm just not a over sized t-shirt and party type of girl.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Texas State isn't coined for it's amazing football team like most schools, like a good half of the football stadium is filled on games that aren't homecoming or parent weekends. But our recreation center is really nice and filled with just about everyone. But Bobcats take pride in being Bobcats, not because the athletics but the school itself.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas State is diverse which is something a lot of people don't have in their hometowns. I gets you ready for the world by introducing you to different cultures. I would totally pick Texas State again, it is a beautiful campus, with a river through it what more can someone wish for. While it has it's party school reputation, Texas State takes academic success very seriously.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've really enjoyed my classes in my major. My professors have phenomenal and were always willing to help when I needed. However, the language department needs a lot of improvement.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I believe Texas State is growing more and more credible in the real world. I have attended networking events held by my college and have had many opportunities to advance my professional skills. However, the job fairs lack coverage of all majors.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are many sexual assaults and robberies on campus. During my freshmen year, multiple people were held at gun point in front of my dorm and were robbed of all their personal belongings.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I had a really great dorm experience as far as the facilities go. However, I had a lot of roommate problems and my RA was very passive and non confrontational so she never helped me resolve any of my problems and would not let me move rooms.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is looked down upon and is not a big makeup of the student population. But Greek life is very laid back and it is easy to make friends in the Greek community.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our sports teams are okay, so that means that attendance is low. Our school really lacks school spirit. Our athletic department is up and coming.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: All of the professors I have had were extremely helpful and welcoming. I have developed very good relationships with a handful of my professors. There are many opportunities for on-campus jobs and involvement.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Average variety with upper level courses but a high variety with basic courses.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great your freshman year. You meet tons of people and are 5 minutes to all your classes walking.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at Texas State is just average. There are a lot of different choices but I don't feel like people try to jam it down your throat if you don't want to join.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not a school that has extreme school spirit relating to athletics but more towards the Greek life or intramural.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: love the environment, the people, and the professors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors were very easy going and understanding. They promoted their office hours and made sure to answer any questions and help students out.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is a noticeable amount of crime on campus, so it's best to always walk with a group and not go out late at night. Although there are emergency buttons outside, most are broken and are in extremely far proximity from each other.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are a great place to live in for the official college experience. Everybody in the dorms are similar to family. We all go through the same struggles so it's easy to relate to people. Most of the other residents even share classes with you and the RA's make sure that you don't get lost in your work and have a healthy amount of social interaction. RA's also host many events in the dorm to ensure that we all get to know each other really well.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek life but I do notice the great extent to which other students go to in order to gain acceptance. It's a big interest for a lot of students who are seeking acceptance and a good resume addition. Fraternities and sororities are always promoting themselves out in the quad.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There is a huge amount school spirit at Texas State.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas State is a very community based school. All of the students are very close-knit.

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.
