3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is strict but it also allows you to be your own person.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: I love the campus buses. They're free (well, part of tuition), and run until fairly late hours to many different locations.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Especially for a Texas school, there is definitely a lot of people from different backgrounds here. I absolutely love it.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I'm a psych major, but not a lot of my classes are specific to that. It's probably because I'm a freshman and I have to get my basics out of the way though.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I didn't have much trouble getting into the program, and the academic advisors are always there if you need them.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Because I live on campus it seems like the greek life is huge, however, there are so many other types of people. You just need to put yourself out there.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of fast food places, and the one's that are full service, are pretty expensive.

5 College Freshman

Technology: They're abundant and extremely fast. They're also fairly new computers.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have a pharmacy at the clinic-which makes things a lot easier, especially if you don't have a car. The clinic itself is very clean and the doctors are friendly and genuinely care.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: We were required to take an online alcohol awareness course, which I think is a great thing to have college freshmen do. You become aware of stats that make you not feel like an outsider if you're the type who doesn't like to get smashed. A shocking number of college kids don't drink.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The river is the main attraction. It's stunning and adds live and good vibes to the campus and the city around it.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you live on campus, like I do, you are in the middle of greek life. I don't care to attend those parties.

3 College Freshman

Weather: I hate the rain, so I make sure to bring an umbrella everyday there is a possibility of rain.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We don't have very good sports teams here.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I hate living on-campus, in a community style dorm. The general atmosphere is great, but I enjoy my own living area and bathroom.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Love the options available here at Texas State!

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not much peer pressure occurs

4 College Freshman

Majors: There is a lot I can do with a major in biology.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not many dining choices off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: They're very strict about substance abuse, especially in dorms. Attendance depends on the teacher. Parking rules seem like every other college but violating them can be really expensive. I've never been affected and don't often hear about anybody else being affected so I think it's not that bad.

Scholarships: Financial aid is frustrating but it's gotten done eventually. Always look on the university website and remember the deadlines.

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.
