Trams are pretty convenient during the week. Also, trams travel to neighboring cities like New Braunfels, San Antonio, and Austin. The transportation on campus late at night, 'bobcat bobbies' isn't as accurate as we'd hoped. Taxi's are constantly present around town. I would assume that cost is pretty reasonable, considering the lower economic college students, and families.

The cheapest available permit, the commuter, is now over $100. Availability of spots is fine as long as you don't mind parking 1 1/2 to 2 miles away from the center of the campus. At that point you're relegated to taking the free bus or walking (uphill) for 25 minutes. You can forget finding a spot on campus or anywhere closer than the perimeter lots, which as I said are miles away.
I commute from Austin, and after my second semester at Texas state, I now park in public spots that are not any further from bus stops than permitted parking.
The $100 commuter permit is way over priced for where it lets you park.

There are drugs here, just like any other school, but if you dont want to partake in the activities, then you just dont hang out with that "crowd". It is simply your choice!

I have loved my time here at Texas State. I wouldnt have wanted to attend any other school. The river and floating is one of the best things about our campus!

Guys & Girls:
Texas State has very attractive people! There's so much diversity, that you're bound to find some eye candy. I love that a majority of people take fitness seriously and enjoy being healthy and active.
Very good fashion here as well.
I have seen some incredibly hot guys since being here. So ladies, you'll definitely be satisfied if you come here.

Texas State is a fairly spread-out campus, but a Bobcat Bobby will pick you up anywhere on campus.

Texas State has a unique campus. Situated right on top of a beautiful natural spring, and right between the cities of Austin and San Antonio, it is the ideal location for both city-dwellers and nature-appreciating students.

There are many parties over the weekends, mostly off campus. Most , if not all of the clubs are 21 or older.

just one visit at texas state and you will understand the diversity is unlimited

there are a lot to choose from, i just prefer macs.
College Junior 2012-09-20T19:42:53Z
I love where i live, except the fact that it is away from everything, and parking for friend that come to visit sucks! i do not ride the bus but if i wanted to it is very convenient it comes right to the front lobby.

The computers at Texas State are amazing especially the availability of them. There is tons of computers labs that one can just walk into and get on a computer and work on assignments and print.

Professors are not strict when it comes to attendance. They will give you extra credit points on your grade if you attend all class days.

There are bus loops all around campus and the city as well as a bus that goes to San Antonio and Austin, but the bus is usually packed and wait on them talks longer than just walking to class. The afternoon is generally the best time to ride the bus because it isn't as crowded. There is also an App the gives you an ETA for your bus stop so you know how long you have to wait and whether or not you should just walk.

At Texas State there are countless ways to get involved and make the most of your college experience! For me, the Loud Crowd is the student organization that I stay involved in. Its a great way to be social on campus and to just be involved! I am also a part of the Honor College which is a benefit in itself and it comes with tiny perks along the way! Texas State is unique in the face that a river runs through campus where people go for fun and for class purposes. The atmosphere is welcoming and students are always reaching out to others! If I could do it all over again with what I know now, I would go to Texas State straight out of high school!

Well Texas weather is pretty unpredictable at times, and when it rains it really comes down. Most of the time rain slows the campus down due to traffic and going from class to class can be a bit of a hassle if you forgot your umbrella. Other then rain, weather at Texas State is great! Nice and hot in the summer for the river that runs through our campus and not to cold in the winter, just bring a coat and your good to go!

There are a lot of computer labs on campus, most of which you can print from and there are rarely complications with the connections. Very good overall.

The one thing that is unique to Texas State is that there is a river that runs through the campus that stays 72 degrees all year around. After a hard day of school you can just jump in the river go for a nice relaxing swim or just lay and tan with some friends. This school is extremely active there are always people outside and enjoying cool Texas nights.

The process of getting into the program was simple I didn't encounter any problems.

Here in Texas the heat is extremly hot. Walking a short distance can get you dripping in sweat. There are also many large hills and stairs you have to walk on which only makes the heat feel unbarable. When the fall and winter season comes around many people enjoy wearing their hoodies and warm clothes with style. It is much cooler but it does tend to rain more during the winter season. Cold and rainy weather do not mix.
College Senior 2012-09-18T23:25:04Z
I love my program just because its not a big department like communications. The advisors know you and they help you with choosing classes. They don't come and serve you with a silver platter but they have tons of information regarding anything in the field and are more than willing to answer any questions you might have.
College Senior 2012-09-18T23:21:42Z
I am happy with my program because it is interdisciplinary and I am able to get a very well rounded education. However, I have noticed that with my major competition is tough and you have to submerse yourself into world news nevertheless, I would do it all over again if I had to only maybe with a little more preparation.
College Senior 2012-09-18T23:17:37Z
I haven't really looked into internships yet however, if there was an internship offered it would more than likely be in San Antonio or Austin which could pose a problem transportation, time management etc.. I would like to do an internship if possible and hopefully one that allows me to gain great experience.

San Marcos is a small town but has so much to offer. It has everything you need, awesome people, great night life and of course tubing. The campus is beautiful and so are the people.

Excellent local and area (Austin to San Antonio) bus service. And if that doesn't get you where you want to go, Amtrak is in town and can take you all over the country! Town is small and is easy to navigate by car, bicycle or foot. Everyone does what works best for them!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
