3 College Junior

Administration: You won't have to worry about anything if you're smart.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Unless you're straight up irratating or verbally belligerent, you'll be fine. With 9,000 new freshman this last year there is no problem with making friends or finding a place to fit in. College is what you make of it, don't blame college if you can't find friends or be happy.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Living on campus is fun the first year, but getting your own place with friends just feels so surreal and awesome and the feeling doesn't go away. You get what you pay for, simple as that. Most apartments have a tram stop in front or near them. All apartments will expect the same from you. There are no cons.

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.
