What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State is a beautiful university, with a river running right through the middle of the campus. I could never imagine going to another university in Texas the people are so freindly and great here. There is always something to do in San Marcos.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I genuinely enjoy attending Texas State University. My overall opinion would be that student life is very important and your voice is heard most of the time. The campus itself includes the San Marcos River which is quite beautiful . Wildlife and being eco-friendly is a huge concern on campus. The downside of Texas State would be the political opinions that arise via social media and in the quad are sometimes vulgar. Besides our political differences freedom of speech is greatly encouraged here. I believe the University believes its doing its best to maintain a safe environment for its students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State University has a huge student population which indirectly translates to tons of different opportunities for everyone. They have a lot of different majors, clubs, sports, and other extracurricular activities to satisfy the interests of over 38,000 students, each with vastly different minds. Academics wise Texas State isn’t listed as one of the best, however I haven’t had any problems with it last semester, all of my classes have provided thoughtful and educational discussions that have helped me learn valuable information and skills. I’ve only been at Texas State for a semester, which means that I’m not the best judge on how great their housing is considering I’ve only lived in one of the dorms during my limited time here, however the residence hall that I chose is one of my favorite buildings on campus. Another great thing that Texas State has to offer is the food, after you sign up for housing you pick a different meal plan which provides access to a large variety of different foods, including vegan and vegetarian options at each dining hall. Of course, you don’t have to eat on campus, there are plenty of different choices around San Marcos for you to enjoy, many of which are in walking distance for those of you that aren’t going to have a car at college this year. There are also various nearby shops to browse for everyday items that one might need. Texas State University was the perfect fit for me, allowing me to get one step closer to the person that I want to be.

Best college in Texas. Pricing is better than most schools and the classroom sizes are smaller. The campus is beautiful and great staff. If you follow the rules and turn in the assignments you won’t have any issues. The location of this school is perfect. This is a school you must visit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers are really great, and as long as you put in the work you will succeed. All the teachers I have had so far show that they really care and that they want you to do good in their classes. The teachers give you times when you can come see them and if you can't make those times they will work with you to find a new time. The campus is also very beautiful from the river that goes through it to the big beautiful trees it is a very fun place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going to TXST was the best decision I have ever made. I feel like I am in a very open-minded community with lots of resources to further my education and broaden my horizons on many levels. The music faculty is incredible and there are always opportunities to hear great speakers and performers on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State University is a very negligent yet studious campus. One positive thing I can say is that the teachers are very serious about the content and materials they teach, and they expect all students to feel the same way and keep up! Although the teachers do instill this mindset into their students; in response the students truly do care about their grades and academics, and it shows in various aspects. I refer to Texas State University as negligent because they do not handle crucial situations and incidents such as suicide attempts that take place on campus in a diligent manner. It's not that the faculty and staff do not care, its the fact that there are not specific rules and procedures set in place for those pressing events. Besides that critical and important matter, Texas State is a beautiful campus to attend to receive an intellectual and motivational education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State is truly a great school. Professors are so helpful and the campus is great itself. I can honestly say it is a very humble school. A lot of programs and help are offered both educational and personal. Students are really involved and I personally am really enjoying my time at Texas State constantly learning new things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Texas State University has the most beautiful campus that I have ever seen. The people at Texas State, its students, staff, and professors, are exceptionally great and their programs and resources are set to help every student achieve success. I can easily access my professors and we are provided with resources such as tutorings, counselors, and therapists that help us throughout the semester. There are hundreds of organizations that anyone can join and become a part of. I love my school and everyone in it. EAT 'EM UP CATS!
