3 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm part of the Pre-Med/ Biology program at Texas State and I personally don't like it very much. There are ton of opportunities to excel in this general area but I feel like the information given to us isn't always applicable to specific majors or not open for registration for every student.

Weather: The weather isn't too bad.. sometimes it can be dreary hot or raining but aside from that we don't get much variation.

Academics: Academic classes are equally as hard as any other college around. Professors are 100% invested in teaching you the material and putting in extra hours to help you understand the concepts. Workload is somewhat heavy in some classes.

I personally love when professors have a TA because they can always help you outside of class with any problem you have understand a certain topic.

Campus Quality: Texas State has great facilities and a lot of opportunity for learning. You can do anything if you're willing to step out of your comfort zone and join a group, sorority, a club, a sport, or even an intramural team.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm where I stayed was pretty outdated and had community showers. Overall it was maintained really well to where it wasn't gross to shower in. However it was really convenient because everything was close to my dorm since it was in central campus.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The local atmosphere is very nonchalant but there isn't much to do off campus. Our downtown area is called "The Square" for a reason...it literally is one small square that is mostly bars or small boutiques or business places. Aside from that downtown area there is Sewell Park and some small parks but not much besides that. I could definitely not see myself living here after graduation.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I'm sure there are plenty of students who use drugs just as any other school, but it isn't a huge deal at Texas State. We do however have a strong policy that forbids them to be on campus under any influence. Visibility isn't very prominent and no one will really peer pressure you to do anything you don't want to do, at least not anyone who I've encountered thus far.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: People are very friendly at Texas State, you could literally be sitting at Starbucks reading a book and someone could approach you and make a friendly conversation.

Transportation: Campus shuttles are usually overpacked during peak hours, sometimes so full you'd rather wait for the next one because people are almost overflowing out of the bus. As for city transportation there is little to none and the city buses are almost incredibly hard to figure out where to be picked up at.

Administration: i think they are strict when necessary...

4 College Freshman

Diversity: In my personal circle it is pretty diverse... you have Hispanic, white, biracial, and African-american. everyone has different background and we embrace those differences. My church is pretty diverse as well. majority of Students do embrace and accept the different backgrounds and ethnicity.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a lot of community you will find in campus housing! Also, it is so convenient! I live in probably one of the oldest dorms but there are lots of different options and there are newer dorms available. Also there are doing some renovation in some dorms

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is different restaurants and things on the square, dollar theater, and other things in san marcos that makes nightlife great!

3 College Freshman

Transportation: honestly for me i am from Houston so i just get a ride with someone that is also from Houston. I live on campus(for now), so everything i need is in walking distance. i have never taken the bus. when i live off campus i definitely need a car. it is just easier instead of having to rely on the bus or someone else.

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.
