Off-Campus Housing: There are a variety of complexes in the area. You can find anything from houses to duplexes to studios and two bedrooms. It's better than cramped dorm rooms and actually can be a lot cheaper if you budget wisely. Totally worth it. You can find a place to live anywhere.

Campus Quality: I don't live on campus but the best thing about campus is the library. It's 7 stories and packed with study rooms, computers, and references. It's probably the best place on campus. It's also great that printing is free because you technically pay for it in tuition. So if you don't have a printer then no worries. Awesome place.

Athletics: I would say school spirit is not that great here. There are some nice athletic facilities but I do not participate or am interested in sport activities. They spend a lot of money on the athletic facilities. Not something I really agree with personally.

Overall Experience: Coming to Texas State was a last minute decision. I would say the hard thing about it are the professors and negativity from some of the professionals. I've had advisors screw me over a lot and give me bad information. Some of the professors are not that great at teaching. Do not let people get you down here. My experience has been really tough. What is great though, is that there are some individuals that are very encouraging like GA's. There are also a lot of student services offered which are an awesome resource. For example, career services have been very helpful in guiding me in the right direction for internships.

Off-Campus Dining: I don't personally eat off campus or on campus. I have my own apartment so I cook at home. Most of the restaurants or food joints are fast food. There are a few other options like Chinese food, Mexican, and Italian. There are several decent sandwich shops. They also have some pretty cool food trucks but I heard they can be pricey. There are a few bars and yogurt or smoothie shops nearby. Also there are plenty of places that sell coffee and breakfast foods. Like I said all are close to campus but I have yet to try all of them.

Campus Food: Texas state needs way more healthier options. The US is already extremely high in obesity and if healthy food was more convient to obtain, those ratings could possible decrease.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is really nice but should be cheaper for the students that have to pay their way through school and can not afford the ridiculous 600 a month for rent.

Greek Life: I'm not in Greek life, but I do think the people involved with Greel life are snobby and only stick to hanging out with the individuals in that same group. They typically all dress the same so they have no individuality.

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.
