The Communication Design program is still changing. I think I'm lucky that I'm in it now from what it used to be but they are trying out a lot of things and different teachers and I feel like I'm not getting the best education as possible in some classes just because they want to experiment. Most of the teachers are good. Some are great professionally but have no idea how to teach.

It really just depends on the people you hang out with.

Like any college the classes and professors are average. Some times you can land yourself in an awful class with an awful teacher but there are amazing classes with great teachers out there. I recommend using RateMyProfessor.com and word of mouth to choose your classes and teachers.

There are more parking permits sold than there are parking spaces. Depending on the time of your classes and where they are on campus dictates where you will park. Arrive an hour early to grab a spot or cruise around for one. It's weird following people as they walk back to their car but it is survival of the quickest. Otherwise parking is pretty terrible.

If I need one I have no problem getting one but they could update them a little more. It is convenient to be able to check one out on campus.

Double Majoring – I'm not particulary talented but I love music. I've been trying to get into the music school so that I can get into my second degree Sound Recording along with my International Relations degree. I enjoy my international Relations degree very much and so far I love my Japanese proffessor even though I'm having difficulty balancing paying for school, working, medical bills, and studying. The workload for this is most of the time unbearable. It would be nice if I could afford not to work so much. One of the hardest things about this degree is finding someone who will take an intern with no experience so that I can get a start on building my resume.

They're Ok – Well they are very affective. I can got from the mall to the store, home and campus, plus it's all free because it was deducted from my tuition. My only complain is that there is no affordable service provided by the school for when to bus is not in service. Taxi's here are really expensive and there is no regular bus system avaiable here.

Not Bad – Of course there are drugs being done but you don't see people doing it in public. But if you see a dude that's got a glazed look in his eyes you know what's going on.

Strict Lol – you have got to be kidding me. I have yet to see an officer on campus

What a Place – It's busy and full of things to do. We are the in between spot of Austin and San Antonio. Life is never dull. Great shopping center and plenty of places to eat. If you have the money joining an organization of club is very easily accessable.

The town has a great bar scene for students who are 21 or older. Lots of house parties.

I am a graduate student, so campus strictness doesnt impact me.

Sports at Texas State are fun, but not a huge part of daily campus life.

Texas State University offer a variety of special study options for students. One in paticular that tends to be popular among the students is on the The Student Learning Assistance Center, which is located on the third floor of the Alkek Library. It is a academic support program for all Texas State students. It administers tutoring services to individuals, groups and or online. Additionally, SLAC provides Supplemental Instruction to collaborative group study for specific courses, learning and study skills workshops, and learning specialist consultations free of charge.

The amount of financial aid I received was only enough to take 4 classes per semester. As a result I am slightly behind on my studies and I am limited to the number of classes I can take. I suggest anyone who will rely on receiving financial aid through the school to aslo seek financial assistance else where. Therefore, you will have more than enough money to spare for all of your educational endeavors.

Texas State College of Liberal Arts offers a wide range of classes for the English major.The workload for a liberal arts major is not for the faint of heart and requires the student to work hard and earn a passing grade. However, all of the professors are very helpful and willing to assist any student in need. But you must inform them of any difficulties you are experiencing in their course. If you open the door to communication you will receive an abudant amount of information that will, in return, help you excel in your studies.

The student apartments in San Marcos, TX are a complete rip off. They are all over priced for what you will actually get. If you wish to live in this town it is best that you lease an apartment that is not affiliated with Texas State University. They are much cheaper!

The computer labs are usually not too crowded (unless it's 5-10 mins before class and everyone is trying to print). I almost always find the time and space to use the lab computers, even if it's just recreational. The newer labs have nicely sized monitors and there are both Macs and Windows available across campus. WiFi is also really good, especially if you live in the dorms and are trying to access from your laptop. Some programs freeze and you need to save often, but this may be a problem specific to a program I use for Nutrition.

The Nutrition program is somewhat demanding; as a science student I always enjoyed the more technical science classes required (like anatomy and physiology, chemistry, etc), but the coursework is diverse. You learn how to meal plan and have cooking labs for hands on experience, study the world's agriculture systems, and get an introduction to counseling techniques. The faculty is friendly and approachable, our facilities have only improved in my time in the program, and it truly is relevant, fun, and interesting. As a dietetic student you need to remember the competitive nature of the required, post-grad internship RD's face. This major is not a piece of cake, but with hard work and motivation you gain many opportunities in a diverse and growing field.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
