5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: although there are a variety of people and we all come from different backgrounds, the majority of students are very open minded and accepting.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: the landlords hassle students about contracts because they know they can take advantage of us.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: i rarely dine off campus. i do not have the time. i am indifferent.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: multiple dining halls across the campus with everything ranging from burgers to thai food. very good variety

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: i do not participate in the greek life so i do not know

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: besides being a large campus with a lot of hills, i feel like my school is very welcoming. everyone is patient and understanding

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: We have the ability to workout during certain hours of the day.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: i got a lot in financial aid but not enough to cover my full tuition costs. and coming from a single parent household with low income, that was an important factor.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: i love culture. and my school is so diverse and filled with so many people with different backgrounds and views of the world. it's refreshing and enlightening.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The athletic department at my school is fairly decent. It isnt up to par with other colleges, but it is enough to get by.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Overall, the policies on our campus are relaxed. Obviously, no smoking or drinking in the open, but most of the RAs and Police are laid back and don't get on your case. If you're smart about doing risky things, most likely you will get away with it. Most professors and Dorm leaders are trusting of you and will give everyone the benefit of the doubt, until proven otherwise. As far as parking, they are VERY strict. Your car will get towed within the hour of parking in an invalid spot.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Freshman year, you will get sick of the 4 main dining halls. However, The Den and Jones have the best selections. The Den closes at 5, but Jones is open till midnight. All the halls are easily accessible and not too far of a walk.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most apartment complexes in San Marcos are cheap and crappy quality, however, there are more complexes available for multiple roommates (3-5) AND its easier to find less expensive places. There are at least 4 new complexes being built as of 2014, too.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is pretty average.. Tailgating is bigger, since our teams are not spectacular.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Everything other than Volleyball and Track is pretty bad.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are study labs and student tutors all over campus! We have a great SLAC lab in the library, where I have received great assistance. As far as providing the resources to learn, Texas State has done a good job. There will be one professor each semester that you hate, but there will also be one that was wonderful.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are 2 main social categories: Involved Texas State students (Greek life, organizations, Strutters, Athletics, etc) and everyone else. Overall, the students are attractive and easy to get along with. Everyone is down to party though.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, Texas State is a great campus and has great diversity. However, Greek life is very big, which can be annoying, unless you are a part of it. The weather is nice, the walking helps with the Freshman 15 lbs., and most of your peers will be easy to talk to. I wouldn't have gone to school anywhere else in Texas -- the school has a good success rate and the classes wont kill your social life.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: theres is not alot to do but you always find fun

2 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: there is a lot of diversity people are pretty much different

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: it has been a good experience but very different

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It is Texas, so everything there is is food

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: there has been many violent cases in the past year

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: people tend to be friendly and respectful

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Its okay not to many choices in the town my school is in but if you drive about 30 minutes to the major city there are a lot of good choices.

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.
