Party Scene: You can always find something to do at night.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I live in Lantana, which is the all girls dorm. They are super strict when it comes to visitation. Boys have to be escorted in and out of the dorm. I don't think any of the other dorms have these strict rules though.

3 College Freshman

Majors: My major is Accounting. I don't know what to think of it yet, because I have not actually had an accounting class yet.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I feel like Accounting is the path I am supposed to take. Math has always been my strong subject. I'm not too nervous about getting a job in this field.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation isn't bad for me at all, because I live in the dorms and can walk any where. For other people it still should not be bad, because there are several buses and bus stops all day everyday.

Academics: Since I'm majoring in Accounting, I'm in the McCoy Business school. I had to apply to be able to take business classes. The work load isn't much homework, but there are only a few test, so I have to study hard to do good. They have a week call "Business Week" to help you meet people, and to help you find job/internships.

Drug Safety: There are plenty of people i know that do drugs, but i mean if you do not want to participate at a function, people do not really pennalize you for it. half of the time if you didn't help pay for what substance is at the function then people do not even bother to ask you to participate.

Scholarships: i have heard alot of my friends talk about their expieriences with financial aid and how poorly they went, but my expieriences have been great, there was only one time my freshmen year when i had any difficulties but other than that everything has gone smoothly

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in an apt complex where the safety is really not as up to par so to say as i would like for it to be, the maintnance and appearance of my apts i do not feel are eual to what i pay for my apartment, i love having my own place and living off campus but the prices are outrageous

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I think that the fact that our universty provides transportation is awesome because the parking on our campus is HORRIBLE. and we cannot all fit on campus if we drove, and also due to the fact that parking passes are WAYYY too exspensive . the tram that picks up at myapartment complex is always prompt and on time, i have not haad any issues with it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I loved being able to eat on campus and just swipe, now that i live off campus its like a pain to go get food, mostly because nothing is really healthy besides subway, but who wants to eat that all of the time ? No one, but i also do feel that there should be more placethat allow our student discounts, i mean we are inn a college town.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: getting accepted into Mccoy is somewhat of a difficult proccess just due to the fact that there are tons of students competting for thte same spots in a classroom.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I think that our authorities do a great job of balancing understanding of students trying to have fun but being able to abide by rules. Every one needs rules , but its cool that they understand here.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The night life here is outstanding there is always something to do , and always something going on that everyone can engage in. I LOVE iit.

4 College Sophomore

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.
