Campus Food: the best dining hall i have gone to is commons, ad my least favorite is Harris which it the closest one to my dorm. the menu and variety are fine i enjoy most of the food, although it is the employees that sometimes have an attitude.

3 College Freshman

Majors: i had some very disorganized boring professors. the only one i enjoyed going to was my communication leacture teacher.

3 College Freshman

Technology: sometimes there is no computers available and i usually dont have time to wait for one to open.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone mostly are accepting of each other no mater who they are or where they came from. challenges in racial /ethnic diversity are perceived here but its not anything big. economic background for me is hard because as some people their school is getting paid by their parents while i am paying for it myself. there are many Christians but i am catholic and i want to not be pressured to convert as i have been here in Texas state.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: i really am doing everything on my own. school resources are helpful but i wish i knew of more especially on how to things like financial aid and registering for classes. i did visit the adviser but he was no help and i disliked his advice. i live on west campus and it certainly has its cons. i have to wake up an hour earlier to leave 30 minutes before actual class starts so that i get there on time in which i walk. it would great if a bus came by west campus!! Most people here are polite as well but some are rude and inconsiderate. the teachers are sometimes polite and helpful. if i were to rate the school on giving the right resources and the right people to help id give it a 5 out of 10

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not big on parties but some were okay because the music was up and load and people were dancing having a good time and socializing.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had to revisit the financial aid office multiple time because i did not recieve enough money for school, although the people working there were very polite.

Guys & Girls: Most of the attractive guys are either taken or are in fraternities and want to hook up with those that are only in sororities. So it is kind of difficult when there are those women who walk around with their butts hanging out of their shorts and three miles of cleavage while you can see their bras through their shirts. I swear that some college girls do not know how to dress modestly in order to get someone's attention. It is almost like you have to look like a hooker instead of being covered. Some college men also need to understand that those women who dress un-modestly, are seeking that kind of attention (sometimes not on purpose and vise versa).

College Student

Scholarships: School will not give you aid unless it is outside of the school, you are not white nor female, or you are the smartest kid on the planet. Now I understand that there are some cases and specific things that go into receiving financial aid, but I do believe that they need to broaden it more.

3 College Student

Diversity: There are a lot of people from different ethnics and socioeconomic backgrounds on campus. It is not totally diverse but you can tell that the university tries to become as diverse as possible.

3 College Student

Campus Food: Dining is okay. I do however like the fact that the university gives students 'Dinging Dollars' in order to purchase things like Starbucks, chips, and other things that do not come with the meal trades that are provided. There are only 5 places to get food from if you want to eat on campus, but only 3 of the dining halls are open to those on the weekend. I do like the fact that they do try and give as many options to those that are vegetarians/vegans or have dietary restrictions.

College Student

Greek Life: I do not believe that those that are associated in Greek Life will be able to get out into the world and experience new things if all they do is become this mono-toned zombie with the same clothes on and try to look alike. Why blow a huge chunk of money in order to have almost fake sisters/brothers?

Weather: The weather at Texas State University is on average very nice. Sometimes there are days where the wind will blow continuously. When it rains on this campus, make sure you are wearing rain boots or shoes that you do not care if they get wet. There is not a lot of rain here, but sometimes it will pour and will not stop which will make the river close to campus rise up due to the water coming down from the campus and flowing into the river. Most days are sunny and nice, but will get cold randomly when winter comes along, but that is Texas for you.

3 College Freshman

Parking: I dont have a car.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: I carpool with my roommate so I have not experienced other transportation yet

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: No sure about the Greek Life

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is great for my Fashion Merchandising Major and I am involved in a Fashion Club which I already made Lead Hair and makeup artist. I am also in a dance team.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food is overall okay and alot of dining halls to eat at.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Im in a older dorm and we always have issues with the air system and the building is very old.

3 College Freshman

Weather: My dorm is a good walk from my classes so the weather sometimes affects my commute.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Apply for aid in a timely manner and you will have a better outcome

3 College Freshman

Diversity: I get along with every race and I accept everyone with different beliefs.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I have my own computer but the library is very helpful when I need to print something or need powerpoint,

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.
