Campus Food: I REALLY love the variety for my meal plan. I'm a little bit ticked off about how I usually have too many meal trades left at the end of the semester.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm a Mass Communication - Electronic Media major, with a minor in Business Administration. Holy cow, I was not expecting the amazing opportunities for Mass Comm majors here. The annual Mass Comm Week, several organizations, several connections with huge companies, our building Old Main standing proud at the top of the hill...the possibilities are endless.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I haven't had much difficulty earning a B in classes where I just take notes and take tests. Some classes I can even earn an A just for showing up, taking good notes, and reviewing the week before the test.

Health & Safety: The Bobcat Bobbies program to help students travel safely around campus in the dark is unprecedented, more universities need to implement something similar. University Police Department is good about keeping students informed on dangerous situations, and sends out "Timely Warning" emails when something has occurred.

Scholarships: So, between Federal aid and scholarships from Texas State, I did okay, but I want to live in Bobcat Village (university owned apartments) and not in a dorm - this is where I had a gap between aid and expenses. It's not fun stressing out about making that third payment. But it's worth it to live in Bobcat Village. Now I feel better prepared to explore and apply for scholarships, and with getting involved in organizations to earn scholarships that way, I hope I won't have to worry about the gap in the future.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Do you have interests? Do you have career plans? There's probably a major here that will prepare you on your journey. In fact, I transferred here from a rival school because they didn't offer my major. And I couldn't be happier with my decision.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Eat 'em up, eat 'em up, GO CATS GO! Bobcat Football is to die for. The other sports are pretty great, too...I follow Texas State Quidditch and it's something good to look into as well.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Oh my. Now, I understand that the school may try to downplay the "party school" label, and there is a party at any school no matter where you go...but Bobcats party, and they party hard. It's easy to get on Twitter and find all the best parties going on. Not knowing about a party is no excuse. Even for GDIs like me, it's not hard to find a party that's really good, alcohol or not. Greek Life tends to dominate the party scene.

Local Area: We, the students that make up Texas State, tend to make up most of the city's population. San Marcos is currently the fastest growing city in the US, and it shows - construction, construction, construction, with slim to no parking sometimes. However, nightlife is still alive and well. During Bobcat Build, an annual volunteer event, we give back to the community that we tend to take over during the rest of the year. The River is the main attraction.

Athletics: All of the games get so hype. It's so much fun, and it's always a good time.

Health & Safety: There hasn't been much crime on campus. The only thing we've been worrying about recently is the bicycle thefts.

Campus Housing: Only downside to staying in the dorms is hearing people on either side of you or on the floor above you having sex.

Majors: Criminal Justice at TXST is great! The professors are very knowledgable and try to get to know you. The classes are mostly taught to help you in the future which is great because it's not strictly "book sense."

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.
