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.

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.

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

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.

Greek Life: There isn't any real defining characteristics if you're Greek or not Greek. Everyone treats each other fairly equal here.

Administration: School Attendance policy is strict, but is not the worst. Dormitory policies are also strict when it comes to alcohol consumption and tobacco smoking.

Off-Campus Housing: If you even consider Copper Beech, think again. I moved here for my last semester at Texas State and do not have enough words to describe how rude, awful, and decrepit the management and apartments are. It has added so much stress to my life having to deal with them and I tell anyone I meet to stay FAR away.

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from, but they are limited to just a couple types .

Party Scene: A lot of places to find parties, be it at the apartments where you can just show up and no one cares, or the square.

Greek Life: Joining Greek life will suck out the life you once knew, turning you into an individual with no sense of identity and very low morals.

Majors: Classes in CIS seem to be lacking where the "real world" application is involved until you get to your senior year. I feel as though must more may have been taught earlier on, rather than useless classes like business intelligence, where you get little more than a history of computers.

Local Area: Shopping is the best with the outlet malls close by, but most impressive is the number of parks along the river and elsewhere for hiking, bike riding, or just taking the dogs for a run.

Academics: Some classes attendance is not required and I noticed I don't learn anything sitting there listening to a teacher read off a PowerPoint so I just print it and go over it on my own.

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.
