4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Career center on campus was always extremely helpful for me. If there was a class I wanted to take but it was already full, they helped me find a class that would still keep me on track with my major. There are also a lot of internships and volunteer work available which I personally think is very important in every college because it allows students to be more involved and obtain more experience. I also know a lot of people who have loved the education provided at Texas State enough to go back to graduate school and further their career even more. It is also very easy to find a job on campus as there is always people recruiting.

Health & Safety: Though I have heard of people being assaulted on campus, I have never been threatened. For those who have, action was taken immediately by police and by the school. Emails are always sent out alerting everyone of any possible dangers so that we can all make sure we are safe. There is also a lot of support for those who have been assaulted. The heath center and counseling departments are very helpful and they help you to feel safe again and cared for, regardless of your situation.

Campus Housing: I lived in Blanco Hall for a semester and it is one of the furthest dorm halls from campus. I didn't mind walking, but when it is really hot, really cold, or raining it is a hassle. The dorm itself was average and the people living around me were all nice. I expected there to be more noise and drama than there was so my time there was pretty enjoyable. The kitchen available for everyone to use was dirty and there was only one microwave for everyone to share. I wish I could have had one in my room. I have a lot of allergies so I often have to make my own food rather than eating at dining halls so it was very difficult to eat enough food. However, I had a lot of fun living in Blanco. Everyone knew everyone and we were all friends.

Athletics: Texas State University had provided a comfortable environment for exercise for both athletes, and non athletes. Everyone is accepting of where you are at physically and the gym is open for everyone and is open the majority of the time. There are sports groups to be a part of for fun that make it exciting for even those who aren't that great at sports. I love how "in shape" I can be in over there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally have a hard time following every topic while in class. In elementary school, I was diagnosed with ADD so I have had plenty of time to work through this. I took advantage of all my professors "office hours" and was able to learn so much more and be on the same page as the professor as far as what we were learning. This helped me to succeed and pass all of my classes. All my professors were very willing to help me and make sure I understood the topic at hand.

Greek Life: As a member of the greek life at UTA, I would say its okay. All the sororities and fraternities have very distinct reputations, however, Non-greeks typically generalize all greek life off of one organizations actions. Therefore, they think everyone in greek life is stuck up, slutty, and like to party. If you are in greek life, it can be either the best thing that's ever happened to you or something you're not really sure why you're a part of it. If you do attend UTA, I would suggest giving greek life a chance before you listen to what everyone else says. It is probably the most significant social outlet on UTA's campus and can give you an opportunity to meet a lot of great people.

Athletics: There is no fan support and ZERO school spirit. The teams are relatively good I guess, but I wouldn't really know because they are never talked about on campus. There used to be a football team but it got cancelled back in the 80's. The athletic facilities are relatively new and nice. But all in all, the athletic scene on campus is nearly nonexistent.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far out of the 10 courses that U have completed, I would take them again just to hear the delivery from the professors. Each and every one of them passionately spoke for their field accordingly and went above and beyond to make sure that each and every student mastered and comprehended the material.

Overall Experience: If every field had the desire to educate all of the students that wanted to pursue that specific career then it would be great, but having a limit on selection makes it unfortunate for those who passionate pursued something that they would not be able to indulge in because of the limited space, it essentially is not fair.

Health & Safety: Campus UPD is always active and readily available during any and all times of the day.

Campus Housing: Retama may have been hideous from the outside, but the community within made it seem all that more pleasing to be a part of and will be missed during renovation this upcoming semester.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Living in the great state of Texas, it could be assumed that some, if not all the collegiate schools, offer an incredible sports experience. However that is not the case here at Texas State. situated between University of Texas and University of Texas San Antonio, it would seem that we are all in conjunction, but we unfortunately do not contend for their greatness in sports.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Aside from the beautiful San Marcos environment, the school is situated atop of a majestic hill and is very comfortable feeling. It feels right to be there and the people there significantly add a unique vibe to the mix which is always welcomed.

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe for students. Campus crime rates aren't high and there are campus police always near campus. I feel very safe on campus, even if I have to stay late at night.

Greek Life: What's great about Texas A&M University is that greek life isn't that big. An individual doesn't have to be apart of the Greek life to make friends. Students that are in the Greek life are very open to everyone and are involved throughout the school. They are viewed as wonderful people and don't get judged.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are a big deal at Texas A&M. Aggie football, baseball, and basketball are definitely the top three sports. The school spirit that shows is crazy and amazing. Students and former Aggies do everything they can to support their school. Even if the performance isn't great, Aggies always are there to support.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Texas A&M University is an amazing school. It is filled with students and faculty that are passionate about education and the success of their fellow Aggies. My favorite experiences are going to the football games and experiencing Silver Taps. I wouldn't choose another school again, because being an Aggie has changed me into a better person.

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.
