Guys & Girls: The diversity is lacking, but it does appear that many students come from different parts of Texas. Most students are fairly stylish and tend to be coupled off in relationships or inner social circles. The campus is so small, everyone knows everybody.

Campus Food: I am not a fan of the fast food offered at the campus cafeteria, nor am I am happy with the places around campus to eat. If you are looking for more alternative, healthy options your best bet is to cook at home.

3 College Senior

Academics: I am a Philosophy major, and love what I am studying. I do think the philosophy department needs to be more focused on the majors instead of the minors and offer classes that will prepare us liberal art students for the job opportunities will eventually face.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It seems that the best options are away from the campus on the outskirts of the city.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, but if I did there seems to be a lot of options to choose from.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I only notice the greeks during their attempt to find pledges. Occasionally, they'll congregate in the most populated areas to receive donations for charity organizations or bake sales. It makes the social atmosphere of the campus lively.

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.
