There is a large diversity here and Texas State University there is a part of the college that is specifically for international students. I have only heard of one racist remark from a white person about blacks but this school accepts different backgrounds and ethnicities.

During the Summer months it is hot, this fall it has not really begun to get cold yet, it gets cold in the mornings and then back in the 80s in the afternoon.

I love the University Gym, it is so convenient and close to campus. Also the athletic events are pretty well organized.

kind of annoying with having to make sure they received what they needed.

A lot of the dorms are outdtated and not kept well. Many of them have been shut down, because their useful life has ran out.

I believe acadmenics is extremely easy at Texas State University; perhaps too easy. To Texas State Students, we have a lot of school work; however, compared to other schools in Texas, our work load and class curriculums do not provide a rich education that allows students to be successful in their majored subjects. I know that there are students who say they had a bad GPA, but transfer to Texas State and are able to boost it back up real quick, because our school is so easy. A lot of teachers give out extra credit, or slack back in assignments, just so students can receive a grade. Students basically don't learn, we are only concerned about receiving grades. Grades don't make people competent in their profession, an education does.

I will not reveal my major for identification reasons, but my major has a great school. We have great programs and do a lot for our community. My major's school is even ranked top 10 in the nation for it's hospitality and help towards getting veterans a degree.

I am not greek, but I have a lot of greek friends and greek life seems decent. I know that in recent years a few organizaitons have been busted by the police with their members facing criminal punishment for indecent behavior and hazing. If it wasn't for that, I would give greek life an A. There are many greeks on campus and all my friends love and enjoy their brothers and sisters.

The dining halls are good. But you get tired of eating the same thing over and over again. Sure I can eat off campus, but I am paying a lot for my meal plan so intend to use. I think there should be more options for meal trades so we are not stuck eating the same foor repeatedly. It cost a lot so I should have a lot of variety.

I like my dorm room in Sterry Hall, it is very nice. I have even seen my friends dorm rooms in Smith and College in and they are nice as well. Sterry is a pretty good distance from the Quad which is the middle of campus so getting to classes in the morning is easy. It is nice dorm, and the RA's are very nice and helpful.

The food off-campus is AMAZING. The Square is usually where everyone goes to hang out and it generally has all of the best food!!!

Greek life is huge on campus but it is not a big deal whether you're part of it or not. Not all of the sororities and fraternities are about partying either. For instance, I'm in a co-ed national service fraternity and we pretty much volunteer on campus and within the community. It was a great way to make friends and you easily feel like you belong.
Greek students are always viewed as the stereotype but that's no different from any other clique; everyone is always viewed as the stereotype no matter what.
There are Greek fraternity houses but they are small and not many people actually live in them.

The drug scene at Texas State isn't huge, it all depends on who you're friends with and what you like to do. Mainly, everything is a personal preference and no one is ever peer pressured into anything. Contrary to popular belief, Texas State is not a party school; everyone that I'm friends with justifies that they don't want to waste their thousands of dollars partying instead of getting an education.

The buses that run from campus are always on time and in abundance.
College Junior 2012-10-15T22:20:42Z
The school has a great diversity of races, ethnicities, and sexual orientation.

Chartwells is not the best. You get really tired of on campus food really quick. They'll have business hours that end at 7pm, but if you go there at like 4pm, they're closed! It's super annoying and confusing. Especially if you only have ten minutes in between to grab and go, it's very frustrating.
College Junior 2012-10-15T21:10:56Z
If You Know Where You're Going, Not Bad – It may be because I am a freshman and don't know my way around this super hilly campus, but there are a few fast food places like Taco Bell and the slowest restaurant chain in the world- Jack in the Box. Otherwise, there's nothing but bars and mini shops.

I'm a Psychology majour and I must say I've not had any issues with my classes. My teachers know what they're talking about and have always made class interesting. The only sucky part is the classes that are required. Most people come with the attitude of "I can't believe I'm being forced to take this class" and the energy drains from everyone.

Guys & Girls:
Most of the guys are in frats. They drink all the time, and when I sit down in class, the first thing I hear is "were you at that party? That guy was totally f'd up!" The girls are mainly sorority sweethearts on campus and trashed partiers off campus.

Even professors complain about not finding parking, and they are actually allowed to park on campus. You have to pay a hundred plus dollars as a student to get a parking sticker so your vehicle doesn't get towed for the one or four hours you're in class any given day. You still have to get a bus to take you up the ridiculously steep hills, and you're not even close to most classes.
College Senior 2012-10-15T19:29:43Z
We have clubs for anything and everything, from Anthropology to Quitich
College Senior 2012-10-15T19:26:52Z
There are a lot of cool little places to eat in the square downtown. . Thats only a 5 minute walk!
College Junior 2012-10-15T17:55:41Z
I would say we have an above average facilities but definitely not the best.
College Junior 2012-10-15T17:51:50Z
I would say the campus is pretty average some places are good and others need new and better food options. Also better labeling so we can choose the healthier options

Health & Safety:
I really feel safe here at Texas State University and the campus police are working overtime to keep the peace. Also they are working with the city police and have formed a no tolerance policy.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
