Texas State is definitely a party school. Always something going on at one of the Frat Houses or something.

Right now I'm just doing my basics, but it amazing how much one on one time you get with your teacher. There are over 30,000 students and I have 4 classes with 30 or less students. It's great how small the classes are and how much can be accomplished. Also it's so much easier to build a relationship with professors. I mean, I've been attending Texas state for about 2 months now and all of my professors know me by my name.

There aren't nearly enough computers. There are always long waits, especially to print things out. Sometimes you wait 30 minutes in line and finally sit at a computer and it won't hook up to the Internet or it won't connect to the printer or something like that.

I gave Texas State an A instead of an A+ simply because they aren't as big as other universities so the teams we play aren't really that well known. Of course it's competitive and fun to watch and support your school, but it's not like the entire school shows up to every football or soccer game. we hear about the sporting events all over campus and they games are free to students which is a definite plus.

The campus housing at Texas state is pretty good. I stay in San Jacinto dorms which are the suite rooms, but there are sometimes difficulties. For example, last week I guess somehow the trash room got locked so everyone just piled their trash in front of the door and it was so gross, but I mean if that's the worst news about staying in the dorms then I guess it's pretty good.

I didn't apply for scholarships at Texas state so I honestly don't know too much about them.

San Marcos TX is a very safe community. It is peaceful, quiet, people are very polite, the whole town is centered around the river. Tubing in the river is by far the best activity. Students are always hanging out at the river at different locations of it and some travel to Austin, which is the music capital of the world. San Marcos is a very safe place, consisting mostly of good and friendly people. There are alot of events around town always, as well as the Premium Outlet Mall shopping centers. San Marcos has all the amenities of a big city but the simplicity and peacefulness of a small town.

Sports are a huge part of Texas State University. Football especially is huge with tailgating every home game, to girls dressing up specifically with dresses and boots to the games, and mostly everybody is there. Same goes for basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, and intramural sports.
College Sophomore 2013-09-21T19:51:38Z
My school is huge on school spirit! We go all out for the sports teams and celebrate a win. Even if we lose, we still celebrate a great game played!

The computer labs are always available for students at reasonable times. Around the time of finals and midterms, it is harder to find a computer available, but a majority of the students have their own laptops so there is hardly a shortage of computers. And with a great school wifi, it easy to do your work without having to worry about being limited to a certain time on any computer.

Texas State has something for everyone! If you don't see a club you like but want to start your own, you have the opportunity to. There are very diverse groups and organizations here at my school that every student can become a part of. I love that there is something for every student to be involved in without the hassle.
College Sophomore 2013-09-21T19:45:23Z
Texas State does a good job making students feel at home and welcome. They go to great lengths to accept each student with open arms.

The Varsity teams at Texas State could be supported more by the student body. The school spirit is present but not at the level that other university have. The teams do their job as the recruitment gathers the best player the school budget ca aquire.

San Marcos is a small town with the huge city of the university in the middle of it. Plenty of stuff to do just like any other place. Has Music and Movies in the park during the summer. There is always events happening on campus if you just look for them. The river runs right through the middle of campus with plenty of areas to find your own spot you like. It has the outlet malls on the south side of town so there is plenty of shopping. The square downtown provides for good food during the day and a nightlife in the evenings. The outdoor center at the university provides ample opportunity to go on trips if you love the outdoors. Rent a paddle board!

I am in the Nursing program. It is located in Round Rock and not in San Marcos so it is very small school. I love the tight-knit network. The teachers are AMAZING, tough, and do anything to help you succeed. The pass rate of the NCLEX is decent...somewhere around 95%. Way different environment than Texas State University in San Marcos and workload is doubled.
College Junior 2013-09-15T17:15:10Z
San Marcos has a good mix of chain restaurants and local ones. Some good local ones to check out are Gils Broiler - it has excellent burgers and is famous for their manske rolls. Another one is Alvin Ords - known for their excellent sandwiches. There are also local food carts and new places popping up all the time.

Well they just changed the bus routes. Now it's longer and inconvenient. Some apartments are the last stop, and by that time the buses are full. I feel like they need to have more buses, especially for those times where many students have classes. The last bus leaves at 11 pm and is only outbound only.
College Sophomore 2013-09-14T20:09:26Z
well it's tobacco free campus, but some people don't follow that rule. There needs to be more parking spaces, and the parking permits are ridiculously too high! They give parking tickets to people who do not have permits, but what is that person supposed to do when there are not enough available parking spaces?

I'm in the McCoy College of Business and I'm extremely satisfied with everything about this program. I'm a Management major, so it's really nice to have professors that held high positions in the corporate world (CFO's, attorneys for corporations, etc.). It's a relatively high work load, but you learn a lot. The curriculum is very engaging and pushes you to learn. Job opportunities from McCoy are really good as well. Most graduates get a job.
College Freshman 2013-09-12T17:10:53Z
The process of getting into my Business Management major was pretty easy. I just had to select my interest in the major on my application. However, the school is insanely selective (which is a good thing). The most important criteria is having a higher GPA and enough credit hours (30+) upon application. I'd recommend having a GPA of 3.75 or higher and making sure you have plenty of math background.
College Freshman 2013-09-12T17:05:43Z
As a business management major, I was very scared that it would be boring, repetitive classes that didn't keep my interest. With 20/20 hindsight, though, I'd pick this program again in a heartbeat. The professors are extremely energetic and truly have interest in what they're talking about. My goal, ultimately, is to get my law degree and MBA and become an oil and gas attorney. The one concern I have with that, however, is the fact that there isn't much demand for attorneys in the current economic climate.
College Freshman 2013-09-12T16:56:36Z
As a business management major here, I'm part of one of the top 10% of business schools in the nation. The department heads maintain great communication with people in the Business School. The professors are very diverse and are very attentive to student needs. I have not yet had the opportunity to have an internship, but many businesses in the area offer them to students.

It's very warm and humid, but not uncomfortable. It rains sporadically at times, but usually the weather is somewhat pleasant. It always feels nice outside.
College Freshman 2013-09-12T14:46:32Z
I received one scholarship, they are very hard to get.

the campus parties are fun, I don't go to off campus parties or bars
Sorry, there are no reviews.
