4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety at our campus is pretty good, especially when there's help towers everywhere in case of an emergency.

4 College Freshman

Technology: A personal computer would be needed for the college experience if you plan on writing essays and while we still have a lot of resources and different labs were we can have a computer available, it;s still a better access. Printing availability is everywhere and the cost is literally one cent that is already taken out of your tuition. The school provides a good network access with ethernet cables that is very reliable and wifi is all over the campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Campus strictness at my school is great because they always ensure that we follow honor codes and important laws and make sure that nothing is going on under the table.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The music program here is great; they offer a lot of other programs as well like business and art programs. The workload is not too extreme, you just have to keep track of everything and the facilities are very nice.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors at our school are very good in rating. It is completely different than high school teachers. The library is one of the main popular study areas because each of the seven floors offers different study scenes like a silent floor and a tutoring floor.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug safety is important at our campus especially since we are known for a big party school. Officers usually tend to show up at parties and we take our drug and alcohol laws seriously. We recently became a tabbacco-free campus.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Parking on campus is a hassle just because you need to make sure that you either leave early to find a spot close to your next location or you need to become an expert in parking perfectly because police officers are very strict on tickets. The cost of the permit for the year seems outrageous so I personally went with no car my first year in college to save some money.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Tips for students
-get your income tax done on time
-complete your fafsa on time or early if you can
-make sure you check with your school's financial aid office to make sure there are no other documents that need to be turned in
-make sure you plan accordingly (time can be your friend or enemy)

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off- campus dining options are very close to the campus and usually offer a very good price for a college student on a low budget. Usually there are some restaurants that are available 24 hours which is great for the late night movies and finals week. When it comes to variety there are a lot of chain restaurants but also some small restaurants that are around the square that are not so bad.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Some of the classes you have to take can be hard and there is NO way to get out of it, but other than that its fine.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors all offer office hours for anyone that needs help. The registration process it crappy the lower your classification is but the higher you come up, the better it gets..

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of random restaurants around. Tons of mexican food.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking permit rules are very confusing, so when in doubt, buy some type of permit.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: We have shuttles that take you to Austin and San Antonio that aren't too expensive. But having your own car is the easiest thing.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: There are tons of computer labs on campus and printing is FREE! The wifi and internet is great most of the time, it just tends to go a little slower during finals.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our teams are that great yet. People always pack the very first few games of the season but it definitely fizzles out as the season goes on.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the campus and how its in a nice size city, not to big or too small.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: We have a huge outlet mall about 5 minutes away from campus so a lot of students work there and go there to shop.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There's a Chick-Fil-A and Panda Express but you'll get tired of it or not want to keep eating it a lot but they have 2 buffets that are okay, the hours are just not good.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid office is helpful with answering any questions you many have. But receiving financial aid for myself is quite a struggle and not as convenient as I'd like it to be.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are quite a number of dining halls that are available to students and they offer most of what students want. As for healthy options, there aren't really that many to choose from. The same for vegetarians.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Some of the professors are great while others make you wonder how they ended up being teachers in the first place.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm a business management major and I love it. I find the classes I take to be very useful and the professors helpful. Texas State makes me love my major!

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We do have crime around campus but police are patrolling the streets on the weekends and making sure there's nothing that could harm innocent students

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I like living on campus simply because it's close to my classes and it motivates me to attend classes. I love my dorm and the atmosphere it has.

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.
