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.

Campus life and the social life of the town are conveniently intertwined. The square is where most the students hang out on the weekend and its a great party scene. We are also very involved in the summer time with going to the river and enjoying the outdoors!

There are many options for student living off campus. In addition, there are currently 3 new complexes being built. All of these offer the tram service which helps students get to and from school. Most student living is very affordable but there are other small, non student living apartments that are even more affordable. Overall, the town is very safe and has a lot to offer as far as living arangements go.

Schools holds off-campus housing fairs every spring semester. I would say living on campus for the first year is a must to get that college experience. Then, move off-campus for more privacy. Cost for off-campus is cheaper than on-campus depending on where you look.

Blanco Hall is close to the recreational center and Harris dining hall. It is a bit far from central campus, but the rooms are a lot bigger than other dorms with the exception of san jacinto and san marcos halls.

With my english major, I will be going into education, therefore I will be student teaching. Texas State has programs to help you find internships and student teaching jobs that will work with your schedule and where you live, so I am not concerned.

The process of getting into my Early Childhood Education major was simple and easy! I did not have to send in a application, I simply met with my adviser and we worked out my future plans for the completion/requirements for my college courses. They have always worked with me helping me in any way they can, accommodating me and my epilepsy problems. They are great at communicating and allowing you to get an override to be in a class for the following semester.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
