What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State is a great campus with lots of opportunity. The campus itself is absolutely gorgeous, with the river flowing right through Sewell Park across the street from the theatre center. There's tons of resources for almost every major and the professors truly want you to succeed and are always willing to help. One thing I will say is that although I personally haven't had to deal with it, I've heard from people that the disabilities department isn't the best. There's also lots of construction on and around campus that can cause inconveniences when trying to transport around. The on-campus housing is nice if you can afford to live somewhere nice but if you can't spend all that money on a fancy apartment-style place then the dorms are pretty mediocre. But don't let that sway you, the school itself and it's academics are great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here! I'm definitely getting the whole college experience. Everyone is super accepting of everyone- unless you're an open republican- and I've never felt uncomfortable around others. My favorite buildings are the library and a the rec center because there are always people that you won't see otherwise.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State has excellent faculty and staff who are alway available and the classes are not incredibly difficult. There is a lot of on campus involvement but the food is not great. Don't get a meal plan if you can avoid it. Expensive housing is nice but not necessary, all of the dorms are pretty good. Strong wifi across entire campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly love Texas state I fell in love the minute I stepped on the campus I’m order to maximize my knowledge, attending this institution was a blessing in disguise. I had no idea what to expect but I was welcomed with warm and comforting arms guiding me any time I got lost.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very good school. The environment is very good around the campus and the general feeling of the campus is great. I am not a current student but I am looking at the school for a possible transfer and from what I've been hearing around it is a very good and safe place to study at.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State is a awesome school. Here at Texas State they offer many opportunities for student involvement. The professors truly care about each and every student. For most college students traveling away from home is hard, how here at Texas State they provide a great atmosphere for students felling home sick. I love Texas State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Texas State in San Marcos is that it is a school that is equal parts "party school" and respectable school that has very intelligent people attending it. It just has a bad reputation throughout the years, but it is by no means a bad or "easy" school to attend. You are challenged and well prepared for the career you want to go in. I have found that many of the professors really do care about the students success and there are many resources outside of class that are available to help students if needed. There is also a good mix of "country/republican" and "hippy/democratic" students that you will always find someone who is not like minded, but can also potentially teach you about the "opposing" view. There isn't too much of one view on politics and/or life to make students bias. You have to opportunity to listen to both sides of an issue and decide accordingly, which I think is the most impressive and important part of college. As students, we have an atmosphere that is equally split, so we can decide for ourselves who we are as people.

I feel at home when I am at Texas State like i belong here. The people are so friendly and welcoming. If you have questions they are very excited to answer and want you to come back for another great experience. I would definitely come back and I'm glad I'm going to be a bobcat '23.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school and I love the atmosphere of the entire campus. Everyone is nice and is willing to help you succeed. The campus is kept clean and it is easy to go from one place to another. The main block, or the Quad, is full of both life and spirit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Graduated from "Southwest Texas State University" in '93. It was THE BEST decision I ever made. The professors were accessible, encouraging, witty, sharp--everything you ever wanted in a teacher could be found in the classrooms. Sure, you can get a degree from a more prestigious school, but networking, hard work, and strong character is what separates the kids from the adults. When I ended my career at Morgan Stanley, I left as a SVP and Director of Marketing for one of their product groups. Not bad for kid with a degree from SWTSU. Fast forward to today, I'm now in the process of going through the school tours with my eldest son. My god. Where did the time go?! For the parents that are reading this review and are in the same position as myself, my hope is that your son/daughter will consider this school. Aesthetics are in abundance at this school. But it also offers so much more. Diversity. Inclusion. Academics. Social life. And Austin to the north and San Antonio to the south. If SWTSU were a human, this is what I’d tell her…. thank you for the experiences in your classrooms. Thank you for giving me wings to explore different opportunities. Thank you for the life-long friends I met on your campus. Thank you to the professors, counselors, lunch room staff, RAs and everyone in between, you are forever in my mind.
