3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of small, local places.

5 College Freshman

Academics: There are lots of resources on campus to help you. The Math Lab and Writing Center are very helpful. SLAC is a good option too. The professors are usually available to help if not through office hours then through email.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my classes! They are challenging yet the teachers keep it interesting. The homework load is about right if you keep on top of it and don't let it pile up. I work 12 hours a week and usually still have enough time to get all my assignments done. We have a good mix of professors, some really push you to do better than you think you can and some are okay with you putting in a good amount of effort. I've learned a lot so far this year and I can't wait to learn more!

3 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Majors: I haven't been able to start any classes that relate directly to my major because freshman have to wait till last to register and all the classes I needed were full.

4 College Freshman

Majors: My academic advisor was very knowledgable and helpful but it's hard for freshman to register for the classes they need because they have to wait till last.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Don't live in San Marcos! It's way too expensive.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: San Marcos is growing so fast that traffic is really a problem. Plus all the train crossings don't help. But it has a has small town atmosphere about it.

5 College Junior

Majors: The program I am in is the best in the state. There is ample opportunity for learning, success, and growth. The music school classes as they apply to SRT majors need to be re done, but overall the school is fantastic.

3 College Junior

Administration: Administration is fairly lenient on most things. But when they're strict they're too strict.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Good variety and plenty of price discounts for students.

5 College Junior

Academics: Its a small program that is eloquently designed to teach us every aspect of the field.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Great athletic program, however almost minimal school spirit.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Pros and cons of living there. It is close to class but the food and dorms are not as desirable as they could be.

3 College Freshman

Administration: alcohol or drug use in dorms is a big no no. In order to create a new student organization a certain amount of people is required. Parking is difficult no matter what it is hard to find a parking spot unless its in the square or a parking spot. The price is ridiculous, your better of without a car. Noise violations don't really matter unless your in the library and someone is really trying to study. The honor code is a huge deal so don't violate it. Usually dorm visitation is allowed until 10 if the person living there lets you in but i have yet to see someone thrown out over it

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The nightlife is awesome if your about it. The scenery is amazing especially at nightime when all the lights are on. There are few attractions like the witliff collection but they are still good to look at. The river is AMAZING its a huge influence on why some people come here

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the residential college and it has its perks such as seeing people i know in class. Its easy to find a study group because many of the classes are similar. It is right next to commons which is a dining hall and it is close to pretty much everything on campus. Everyone likes to talk and socialize in the lobby. It is mostly worth the money. Its always clean but the bathrooms are a little old. The only downside is you have to have 3 residential college classes with the learning community so it can mess up your schedule. you also have to go to 7 activities hosted by the residential college

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: most restaurants our fast food such as chipotle and taco bell but there are some restaurants such as mexican restaurants and italian. Lots of pizza places but you can get sick of them very quick

3 College Freshman

Athletics: football and soccer team very good dont hear much about other sports

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.
