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.

Professors are great and seem to enjoy there job.

Health & Safety:
I always feel safe. Walk around campus at night all the time.

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.
College Senior 2013-07-03T02:28:04Z
I have never lived on campus, so I cant give an accurate description

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.
College Senior 2013-07-02T21:58:09Z
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.
College Senior 2013-07-02T21:52:23Z
I am very pleased with my program at the school. It is one of the programs doing a lot of expanding so since I've been in school a lot of improvements have been made in the department. There are many cool research opportunities as well as a good academic organization to get involved with. I plan to become a registered dietitian after graduation and possibly pursue a Master's of Science with the military.
College Senior 2013-07-02T21:43:40Z
The process of getting into the accredited Dietetics program at Texas State isn't too difficult. Once in the program, however, you should take your coursework seriously. Dietetic students must maintain a GPA of 2.75 or higher to remain in the program. Any student interested in pursuing a career in Dietetics must also participate in a post-grad internship; these are very competitive, only about 50% of all applicants are accepted.

It is best to go visit the financial aid advisors if you really need help. I did once and it was not a hassle but if you don't mind waiting for about an hour then go for it. There were students sitting on the floor, laying and it was just hard to move around. There phone service is not good either cause you can tell that they are annoyed at you for not figuring things out on your own. You're lucky if you get someone that is interested in helping you. But we all have different experiences.

My school has a bad reputation on its night life. It is often called a party school and that every student that comes here just wants to party. Though that is not why I picked it, many others are definitely on that bandwagon. When it comes to the nightlife at TSU, you will find many parties, guys eager to get girls drunk, many cops on the look out, a few car crashes, so you can expect the sirens at night, and lots of underage drinkers getting tickets and landing in jail. The driving here is not fast but since the whole town is undergoing construction you can expect delays in traffic plus there is a train in the middle of town so people are always late or you have to learn how to manage your time. The awesome thing is that it is not a very big town so you can get anywhere on a bike or use public transportation.
College Junior 2013-07-01T21:58:02Z
I give them a B+ because they have recently prohibited smoking tobacco on campus but I have seen many students smoking and there are quite a few spots where you can find them gathering but it still affects the students that are frequently passing by. But the police do focus a lot on making sure there are no underage drinking and any use of drugs is not happening.
College Junior 2013-07-01T21:54:38Z
They have very good instructors that know what they are talking about and have plenty of experience, but to me that isn't enough. Most classes are for journalism and not so much for film and television. That is where I get stuck because that's not exactly what I want to do. It is helpful but it doesn't get me ready for what I want. So most of the stuff I know I read from books.
College Junior 2013-07-01T14:56:30Z
I always feel very safe at Texas State regarding drugs and alcohol. I know from friends who live on campus that some of the older students engage in partying and drinking on the weekends, but it seems to happen very moderately. My friends and I never felt pressured or unsafe when it comes to drugs or alcohol.
College Junior 2013-07-01T14:50:53Z
I don't live in San Marcos, so I can't really comment either way.
College Junior 2013-06-24T19:56:25Z
I am well over 21, so I enjoy the occasional night out, but with good friends and in a safe environment. Being safe transportation is crucial.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
