Greek Life: Greek life at Texas State is just average. There are a lot of different choices but I don't feel like people try to jam it down your throat if you don't want to join.

Athletics: Not a school that has extreme school spirit relating to athletics but more towards the Greek life or intramural.

Health & Safety: There is a noticeable amount of crime on campus, so it's best to always walk with a group and not go out late at night. Although there are emergency buttons outside, most are broken and are in extremely far proximity from each other.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are a great place to live in for the official college experience. Everybody in the dorms are similar to family. We all go through the same struggles so it's easy to relate to people. Most of the other residents even share classes with you and the RA's make sure that you don't get lost in your work and have a healthy amount of social interaction. RA's also host many events in the dorm to ensure that we all get to know each other really well.

Greek Life: I'm not involved in Greek life but I do notice the great extent to which other students go to in order to gain acceptance. It's a big interest for a lot of students who are seeking acceptance and a good resume addition. Fraternities and sororities are always promoting themselves out in the quad.

Athletics: There is a huge amount school spirit at Texas State.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Texas State is a very community based school. All of the students are very close-knit.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The year I have spent at Texas State has been a good introductory year to the college life style. The city of San Marcos is a safe and fun one. There is so many community based activities that I really enjoy. My school is unique because our motto is diversity. It strives on welcoming different people from different places and backgrounds. It is a very welcoming place. If I could do it all over I would definitely choose Texas State again. I have made so many amazing friends since attending school there. Lifelong friends I would say. Not to mention that San Marcos was far enough from my hometown where I could go home if I needed too but it also was a means based trip if I went home. I was free but able to go home and be grounded if I wanted.

Overall Experience: I've met a lot of great people here. My professors don't seem like they care about students passing or failing. Some do, most don't. I feel like professors play a huge role and all classes I've taken so far I feel most professors just think they just need to talk about they're PowerPoint slides that they've used since they've started working here.

Health & Safety: I often get emails about sexual assaults. And although it's hard to prevent it I don't see a lot of advertisement going to people who have been victimized. And I do truly believe that there could be more done towards this issue

Campus Housing: I remember living in sterry hall. And although it was a tad expensive I did feel close to a lot of people. And that was the most social I've ever been going to college. It was a great experience.

3 College Student

Greek Life: There's nothing terrible about wanting to fit in. I'm an outsider looking in so I can't really say how great being in a fraternity or a sorority would be but I could imagine it being fun.

Athletics: You know how football is super important in Texas and if there's not a great football team people have a hard time looking at any of the other sports. I'm not bashing our football team they're trying they're hardest. I do wish that there was more school spirit though.

Overall Experience: I my experience, I've had professors be fair to how they grade and be fair to how they approach classes. I just wish they honestly took into consideration that everyone learns a different way and just standing up in the front and reading off a power point is not the only way of teaching, or instructing a class.

Party Scene: Nightlife on the weekends it nuts. The square might as well be the worlds fair, but on an average week night, the night life is pretty average.

Party Scene: It is not really a secret that Texas State has great parties, but I will say that they do not overwhelm the school and if you are not really into partying, then I doubt you will be affected. If you are into parties, they are definitely around.

Academics: Our academics are great and I have been getting better I feel. I have had a Doctor for almost every subject I have taken at Texas State and have been pleased with almost all of my professors.

Diversity: I would say that for the most part, the campus is a very accepting place. The school is so diverse and I have never myself witnessed confrontation based out of the diversity of the campus.

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.
