Guys & Girls: Girls here are hot. Guys here are average.

Party Scene: Great party scene but if it's not for you, don't worry. Texas State's party rep is stupid because there are a ton of people here that don't party. If you don't like to party, don't party. If you do, then cool, you have options. The party scene will be exactly what you want it to be.

Off-Campus Housing: My friends live off campus and say it's amazing, but some are pricey.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: I love San Marcos. The square is awesome and San Marcos is in the perfect location.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my choice. UT was my first choice, and I didn't get in. I figured I would transfer from TXST to UT my sophomore year but now that I'm here I'm in love with every part of Texas State.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Don't have an opinion of greek life, but I'm friends with some greek people.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I feel that I am slightly biased in this aspect because I am in the newest dorm on campus. Falls/Sayers are the best dorms, and if you can afford it I would definitely recommend living there. The RAs are amazing and the building/rooms are top notch. Gallardia and Chataqua are other great options, although I think they are community style. I know people that have had bad housing situations but when it comes to Falls/Sayers, I feel like I am living in royalty.

Campus Food: The food and dining options are okay. I feel like they're very similar to other public colleges. If you're a vegan or vegetarian, you won't have many options though. If you are a health nut, there's salads at the dining halls but that's about it. The food is generally pretty bad for you and not that delicious. If you're like me and love fast food, then you will be lucky. There's fast food EVERYWHERE in San Marcos.

4 College Freshman

Academics: They are great. I love the professors here, they really care about the students. The curriculum is difficult but definitely not impossible. If you study, you'll do fine 9 out of 10 times. The faculty here is amazing. All of my professors have available office hours and are always there for me when I need them. I have developed great relationships with the majority of them.

Majors: I am an English major but I'm unsure on whether I'm switching it or not. I enjoy the English department.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not really into sports but our rec center is incredible.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love my campus but I would have to say off-campus dining is the worst part about San Marcos. It's mostly just fast food.

4 College Senior

Administration: At Texas State University the most strict aspect I have dealt with is attendance. In all of my classes there are attendance policies that can potentially affect your grade. I have never personally dealt with the honor code but I do know that the school takes it very seriously.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of places to eat !

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.
