i am in a home group that occurs every Thursday, currently looking for a job to pay off the loans as soon as possible. i study every hour i can but everyday of the week seems so cramped with so much to do all the time.
College Freshman 2013-12-10T19:02:14Z
the work load is heavy and studying is always a must but it gets overwhelming many times, but i try to tell myself that it may be hard but it is doable and to just keep moving forward.

Health & Safety:
there have been many Texas state alerts sent to us in email and i feel very unsafe walking back to my dorm from class.

i love that we have our own restrooms and not community restroom. the price is fair and i am okay with it. my dorm isnt as social as other but we do hold about 500 students

the best dining hall i have gone to is commons, ad my least favorite is Harris which it the closest one to my dorm. the menu and variety are fine i enjoy most of the food, although it is the employees that sometimes have an attitude.

i had some very disorganized boring professors. the only one i enjoyed going to was my communication leacture teacher.

Everyone mostly are accepting of each other no mater who they are or where they came from. challenges in racial /ethnic diversity are perceived here but its not anything big. economic background for me is hard because as some people their school is getting paid by their parents while i am paying for it myself. there are many Christians but i am catholic and i want to not be pressured to convert as i have been here in Texas state.

i really am doing everything on my own. school resources are helpful but i wish i knew of more especially on how to things like financial aid and registering for classes. i did visit the adviser but he was no help and i disliked his advice. i live on west campus and it certainly has its cons. i have to wake up an hour earlier to leave 30 minutes before actual class starts so that i get there on time in which i walk. it would great if a bus came by west campus!! Most people here are polite as well but some are rude and inconsiderate. the teachers are sometimes polite and helpful. if i were to rate the school on giving the right resources and the right people to help id give it a 5 out of 10

I am not big on parties but some were okay because the music was up and load and people were dancing having a good time and socializing.
College Freshman 2013-12-10T18:28:40Z
I had to revisit the financial aid office multiple time because i did not recieve enough money for school, although the people working there were very polite.

Guys & Girls:
Most of the attractive guys are either taken or are in fraternities and want to hook up with those that are only in sororities. So it is kind of difficult when there are those women who walk around with their butts hanging out of their shorts and three miles of cleavage while you can see their bras through their shirts. I swear that some college girls do not know how to dress modestly in order to get someone's attention. It is almost like you have to look like a hooker instead of being covered. Some college men also need to understand that those women who dress un-modestly, are seeking that kind of attention (sometimes not on purpose and vise versa).

School will not give you aid unless it is outside of the school, you are not white nor female, or you are the smartest kid on the planet. Now I understand that there are some cases and specific things that go into receiving financial aid, but I do believe that they need to broaden it more.
College Student 2013-12-08T23:11:59Z
There are a lot of people from different ethnics and socioeconomic backgrounds on campus. It is not totally diverse but you can tell that the university tries to become as diverse as possible.
College Student 2013-12-08T23:02:17Z
Dining is okay. I do however like the fact that the university gives students 'Dinging Dollars' in order to purchase things like Starbucks, chips, and other things that do not come with the meal trades that are provided. There are only 5 places to get food from if you want to eat on campus, but only 3 of the dining halls are open to those on the weekend. I do like the fact that they do try and give as many options to those that are vegetarians/vegans or have dietary restrictions.

I do not believe that those that are associated in Greek Life will be able to get out into the world and experience new things if all they do is become this mono-toned zombie with the same clothes on and try to look alike. Why blow a huge chunk of money in order to have almost fake sisters/brothers?

The weather at Texas State University is on average very nice. Sometimes there are days where the wind will blow continuously. When it rains on this campus, make sure you are wearing rain boots or shoes that you do not care if they get wet. There is not a lot of rain here, but sometimes it will pour and will not stop which will make the river close to campus rise up due to the water coming down from the campus and flowing into the river. Most days are sunny and nice, but will get cold randomly when winter comes along, but that is Texas for you.
