5 College Sophomore

3 College Junior

Local Area: Local atmosphere is pretty fun.

3 College Junior

Administration: Policies about drugs and alcohol in the school dorms are very strict. Attendance varies from class to class but in general they are fairly strict. Parking services are extremely strict where you can park, you will definitely get a ticket if you are parked in the wrong spot!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely a big part of the social atmosphere on campus, they are always in the quad recruiting and posting flyers of parties. Greek students are generally not viewed very well by non-greeks. They are viewed as not very intelligent, rude, and crazy partiers.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is extremely expensive, a lot of the housing is not worth the prices they are asking.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It was a hassle trying to get ahold of the financial aid office but when i finally did they answered all my questions and I received my aid pretty smoothy.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: A lot of it is over priced but there alot of options, especially if you go to Commons, Hariis, the den, or the Lair.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Mexican food is everywhere, Drive in's are everywhere as well as food trucks. Local resteraunts like Grins and Los Cucos are well known.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus living is everywhere, and surrounds the campus which makes it great to get to class, the prices range, so it's easy to find somewhere in your price range. All apartments accomodate to student living and the process of leasing is easy.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The volleyball team and baseball team are really great. Our football team is getting better, with the new stadium and attendance at tailgates make it really fun. our rec is a huge three stories and includes two pools, 4 basketball courts and an inside track.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Only three buildings are new and are really great to live in. Most of the residential buildings are extremly old and are not renovated. I lived in San Saba freshman year which was bulldozed two years later. It was a horrible experience and it was far from my classes.

5 College Junior

Majors: My program at the College of Fine arts and Communication. Going farther into the program of Communication Design is very competetive with my collegues, but every one is extremely helpful. The professors have a lot of experience with whatever they teach. The facilities and JCM building has a great gallery to show students work, from computer labs to screen printing, painting to book binding, the building has many commodities, that will help you exceed in class. I am more than happy to do the work because it's what I love to do. All also make a note to show professional work , and fun professional projects to show students what we are striving for which gives the college a great learning atmosphere.

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.
