What is your overall opinion of this school?

I’ve only been here for a total of 3 weeks but I really enjoy the scenery and I enjoy being here. There is quite a lot of stairs and the university is basically built on a hill but I’m sure you can get used to the walk. The majority of my classes are in the same area and they do challenge my intellectually especially ethics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Texas State University is the school for me. The campus is absolutely breath taking and I can't imagine myself getting an education anywhere else. We have so many organizations and volunteer opportunities so you'll never feel alone. My first day here, I made a group of friends and we've hung out as often as possible. Everyone here is super helpful and only want what't best for you and want you to succeed. Eat 'Em Up :)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I remember telling my mom, "I'm so excited to go to Texas State!" Unfortunately Texas State wasn't excited to see me. I later realized that Texas State consistently fails to address safety concerns of students with different backgrounds. We have had multiple incidences where students have been harrassed based on race, sexual orientation, or gender. As stated earlier I only go out in groups, not only because is is safer, but because I am an African American woman. Lord knows, I don't need to end up being murdered or murdering someone on campus for putting their hands on me, because we all know who will get the worse penalty. You would think that professors who teach us about diversity, politics and policies would step in to say, "hey something has to change". But no, it leaves me to think who really believes in changing this world for the better or who might secretly be a racist. I don't care if the campus is beautiful or has many student services, because if my safety is a concern what does that do for me?!? It's truly dissapointing to tell my mom that I'm going to try to get out of my night classes last semester to avoid the possiblility of being harrassed or harmed. Luckily, I had a WHITE friend who took the same night classes with me that semester so we always walked together. Lucky me?

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to Texas State University knowing no one, however after I attended an incoming freshman camp and making so many friends I felt better. Once classes started and I got the swing of things I knew that Texas State University was the place I was meant to be, TXST helped me become more open minded and get to know so many people from different walks of life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State University is a great school especially for those who want to go to a big school but feels like a small town and the teach to student ratio is pretty good. So, if you’re struggling with making a choice to come to Texas State or not I would advise you to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It could be a lot better in some areas, but it is fairly alright in general. There is a heavy Christian influence with lots of Christian religious clubs and several close churches. There is a mixed political atmosphere, but it leans heavily towards conservativism. I would not suggest going to TXST if you are a minority.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the Texas State campus, it's extremely beautiful. I've been able to meet some great people in my classes as well. Although Texas State brands themselves as having a high Hispanic population, that is not the case, something that I was fairly disappointed in. The professors in both the Studio Art and Psychology departments are amazing, but some of the general course professors aren't the best.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State is a beautiful school with really amazing teachers. It is not a school that is into one thing over others more so there are many different types of people and things to get involved with. It is in a great college town so there is a lot to do. Everyone is supportive also which is very much appreciated and needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professors and faculty members are always available when you need them. I lived on campus my first year and I could honestly say it was the best decision I ever made considering my house is 30 minutes away. The only downfall about living on campus is that there are only about 3 places open until midnight if you are hungry. I enjoyed all the friends I had made while living there. Getting to my classes was easy but if you have back to back classes, make sure you can make it in that ten-minute walk because of those stairs are deadly. Overall, TXST has been a great experience so far because of my professors and friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school but the on campus dining needs more of a variety and to shy away from cheap meals and portion sizes. Other features such as parking and study spaces are slightly limited for the amount of students that go to the school. Professors are denct for the most part, I have had a few that I do not like their style of teaching but overall the educators are good and the school has a lot to offer.
