4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining has a very wide variety and most places manage to stay open very late.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Texas State is a very lenient campus. There are only few areas where it becomes strict; such as parking and smoking. Other than these two situations, the campus is the best you can choose to go to.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Now that I have finished my core requisites at community college I can relax and enjoy my classes for what I am going to school for. There is always going to be alot of studying to achieve that good grade. Always opportunities available for internships and more. You just have to jump on them.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The library is the place to study. Plenty of quiet places to go. The professors are very nice. Registering isn't hard at all. Just know ahead of time what you are going to take and register soon as its available so you are guaranteed that class.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is construction going on right now around the school, making it difficult to get around, but the bus system available for the students goes all over and is very convenient to have. I take the bus or bike to class, and have my car for other things.

Local Area: There is ALWAYS the RIVER! Tons of places to go and the outlet mall isn't far. The Square is within walking distance from the school.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The library has computers and there is computer labs available. I have my own laptop, but sometimes it gets annoying carrying it around all the time so have a stick drive is A MUST!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Try to get into housing quickly to get a good deal. Waiting till last minute will cost you. The bus system goes by all the apartments which is very helpful for those who don't want to pay for the expensive school parking.

Greek Life: Its there if you want to join, but no pressure to join. Everyone is friendly regardless.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Its not openly out there, but if you keep your eyes open and alert you'll catch it. I've never been pressured to taking drugs or to drink.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: At every corner there is an alert button for the security to come to as quickly as possible. They also said if you don't want to stop to keep walking and push the buttons at each time you come to so they know which direction you are walking to help you.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was admitted late and after all the awards were dispersed so I was awarded very little and resulted in having to take out student loans. Was hoping not to get into debt with student loans. The scholarship deadline for the school is also way too early for transfer students.

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.
