There are really ALOT of options. The smallest meal plan is 150 meal trades with 125 Dinning Dollars, that is a good amount to start out with. However, you will get bored of eating the same kind of foods. The Dinning Dollars are accepted off campus too. So you can always treat yourself to other options whenever you get tired. At each semester, you unused meal trades will transfer but your Dinning Dollars do not.

As a Nursing Major, I have many options of schools to go to. Texas State has a fairly new nursing program that started in 2010. That is what caught my eye, I wanted to be apart of something really new. I would never change my major. Its real competitive to get into, which just makes me strive harder for A's. My ultimate goal is to become a CRNA, seeing as I'll be in school for such a long time, I picked up a business minor to fall back on in case I do not get into the graduate program or can't find a job right away. Always got to have a back up plan.

I don't know much about the 21+ parts about the nightlife, seeing as I am underage. However, I have heard A LOT of great things about it. But, there is alot of options for underage nightlife!

This is really how you get into the social life. Random people will just come knock on your door and invite you out. Everyone is so nice to each other. All dorms have ups and downs. It all really just depends on how you look at the situation and pick good roommates. The costs is very good.

San Marcos is right between Austin and San Antonio! Therefore, it's great living in this area. It's also a very friendly and outdoor kind of place. Small town feel surrounded by big city life. Perfect!

There are dining halls all over campus, but after a while, you get tired of the food.
College Sophomore 2012-12-09T08:16:18Z
Transportation is great! There is a tram that takes you all over campus, off campus, and to other cities!

I'm satisfied with my education. My professors are great!

There are a lot of different apartments near campus that allows you to be close to the university, but still have some freedom.
College Sophomore 2012-12-09T08:13:15Z
There are a lot of different cultures at this university and organizations to allow you to feel closer to your culture and people that share the same background as you.

I'm not going to lie, parking at Texas State sucks! It's expensive, and you have to come to campus around 8 am to find a spot.

There are tons of computer labs on campus that are free and readily available to students. The network can be slow occasionally though.

There is a variety of apartments available in San Marcos. Some are extremely close to campus which is nice because you can just walk right to class! There are 1-4 bedroom apartments available all over town. I use a location service each year to decide where I will live. They give you an overview of prices, perks, parking, etc. San Marcos is a pretty safe place to live as well.

There is a high selection of fast food chains. I am not particularly fond of that. Only one restuarant offers a student discount. There are many large restuarants however I don't want to eat there since I am usually just needing something fast and easy.

I am very pleased with the McCoy School of Business at Texas State. The overall experience has been rewarding and professional. Most professors use their real world experience to help guide the class throught the semester. Every professor has been considerate of our personal needs such as a 40 hr work week, kids, family, etc. It's such a warm and welcoming atmosphere that fosters learning, I love it!

In every class I have been to I have seen a diverse selection of students. Every type of person, age, race, gender, etc. What's really cool about the Round Rock campus is that majority of the students are working parents. And that's really cool!

I am in the McCoy College of Business at Texas State in Round Rock, and my overall experience has been great! The faculty seems very interested and dedicated to their students and the facility is gorgious! All of my professors use real world experience in the class room. One professor even took the time to talk to me about my major options and he encouraged me to change my major.

Off-Campus Housing at Texas State University is at a reasonable price! I have lived in my apartment for 2 years and the cost is too good to be true. Bus route availability. Parking is great. Safety is excellent. landlords are awesome! The school provides information on various apartments near the college.

Guys & Girls:
The girls at Texas State San Marcos are beautiful and lovely. I enjoy many conversations with random people and love how friendly students can be.

It stays usually bright during the summer, occasionally with an extremity of now 100's, but all buildings have a/c which is where you'll reside most of the time anyways unless your looking for sweating and getting a tan.

The process of becoming a Music Ed major was quite difficult considering you have to have some experience(years) of playing and instrument with an organization or so. No challenges approached me due to my success with my past volunteer work with institutions and organization that was easy as performing my instrument and playing some works that were just tear-jerking to the audience. The most important criteria is perhaps the prepared audition that you may be asked to record so that it may be reviewed by the professor of your instrumentation, the aural and theory placement exams that aren't hard if you've prepared with theory in high school and the resume of your music stuff. Professors like to see the involvement and the commitment you have to music, especially at Texas State which is considered one of the best Music Education schools in the nation. For tips, I'd say just be calm when you approach the professors during your vocal or instrument audition, you may even get to work with them when you get in! I'd recommend practicing through scales, arpeggios, and just the basic fundamentals of your musicianship because it may help you now, but just like all freshman or new students, you enter a new level or maybe have to adjust yourself to the teachings of some unique individual who has just affected others.

Being a freshman in dorms, their really isn't much to boast or nag about. Texas State provides livable environments for everyone, some spacious or more suited for others. The cost is really dependent upon what YOU desire upon coming to Texas State, do you wanna learn how to budget by settling with what would be more financially good for you? or if it doesn't bother you then you should be well off. The social environment is most outrageously one of the best you'll ever come across from, traditional friendly and common courteous bleeds from these students. I remember being majorly lost where I was and which rooms and even buildings! I had class in. Luckily, students I came across, some which instantly became one of my closest friends here guided me to even to the door of my next class. The perhaps most enjoyable convenience is the traditional aspect of Texas State, it feels like I never left my high school. The teachers go out of their way and time for you, the atmosphere is just better and more realistic in scheduling, and pride for our sports and teams far exceed what I would've expected. I am in the Bobcat Marching Band and its very beloved by the members to hear the crowds roar for us and reach their hands for a shake of appreciation. Everyone is a star on the field and in the stands, You want make a mistake being a Bobcat at Texas State. EAT EM' UP EAT 'EM UP GO CATS GO!!

As an education major in the field of music, I will be student teaching, both privately and abroad a large group. I don't care of being paid, the reason to be paid when the students themselves show potential and are willing to express everything they are and have become through music. I would rather accept the results of their huge success through the variety of opportunities as they progress as musicians and students of mine.

I am a business management major. The business school is state of the art. The building was built in 2005 and is one of the most business schools in the nation. We are the 3rd ranked business school in the state of texas. We have state of the art trading labs where students learn about the markets and trading stocks and bonds. We have top of the line faculty and professors who are not only invested in the world of business and give great real world examples through their experience, they are invested in the students. Being a business student at Texas State is the best major you can pick!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
