No Space! The parking at Texas State is very limited at the moment. The amount of students has become so great that the university couldn't keep up with parking spaces, but they are building a new parking garage which should fix some problems.

Yummy...If You Look! Off campus food can be limited...if you don't look hard enough. There's the typical fast food joints like Taco Bell and MCDonalds, but there is also some great smaller restaurants that are still affordable such as Grins and Gordo's. Food trailers have recently become popular in San Marcos and are AMAZING. Cheap food with variety!

If you go to Texas State, don't move your car during the week unless you want to search and search for a spot when you get back. You pay 210 for a residental spot and aren't allowed to park in half of the parking lots. Even if you need to run into your room really quickly don't park in a red spot as soon as you come out you will have a nice 50$ ticket on your window. Parking is horrible to say the least.

At the football games although Texas State isn't considered to have a great football team the school as a whole goes out and supports our team. The school spirit is amazing and everyone joins in. We are currently building a new staduim so next years games as well as us being in the WAC will be even greater.

Drugs are not a big deal at Texas State other than Marijuana. Drinking is more popular

There are multiple computer labs availiabl on campus. Even during busy times such as mid terms and finals you can most likely find a computer to use. Also, the software of the computers is very helpful.

San Marcos – There are a lot of activities in San Marcos for everyone. Whether it is floating the river or walking around downtown. Major cities such as Austin are in close proximity and local towns such as New Braunsfels and Gruene. There is never a dull moment in San Marcos

I Wish I Was Rich! Texas State has a pretty affordable tuition compared to other neighboring universitys. The university was supposed to give me a certain amount of money for coming from a low gross income family, but because of lack of fundson their end I did not receive the amount the "promised". yet in the end they gave me money, not the amount they promised but enough to pay for the rest of my tuition.

Smokers Beware! Recently our campus has become a Tobacco Free campus! No more inhaling that disgusting smoke and getting lung cancer. If you get caught . . . . good luck.

Wholesome and Nutritious – The dining halls on campus have really good food. Some halls serve healthier foods than others but overall the food is of high quality. It can be expensive if you didn't buy a meal plan like myself, but friends of mine who did buy a meal plan have found that it is more convient and worth the money.

I haven't heard nor seen any challenges regarding diversity.

The facilities are great. Everything here is great, actually. All of my professors are willing to anything to help out the students. I cannot forget the beautiful campus itself. There are many hills, a river, sand volleyball courts, and basketball courts on campus. What more could you ask for?

Its a long process but then when you get it its okay. the lines are long depending on what time and day you go.

I didn't recieve any...I looked high low for some that were for average students and aren't Bill Nye the Science guy or Future Evil Genius Ruler of the World smart, because I'm an average student, yet I couldn't find any for me.

Are computer aren't state of the art, but they get the job done in a proefficient amount of time.

Medium Sized Town – Pretty small town feel, but deffinitely gaining some speed in terms of population. Somewhat rural, but definitely not country nor is it booming like Austin; it's got just enough and you're within two major cities if you really just want to go somewhere!

Fun but a Lot of Parties! It's been really fun, there is always something going on. But I think people are too focused on partying instead of focusing on studies

Guys & Girls:
Pretty Attractive – Most guys and girls on campus are very attractive, dress nicely and definitely utilize the rec center to keep up their shape

Hit or Miss – We have 2 dining halls that are buffet style, and some days its great, and other days it's horrible. Some of their food just has no good taste, it's very bland. But other days, its very delicious. They do rotate their menu quite a bit. There is also a dining hall that has different places in it, but it's not very good either. The most common place to eat, The Lair and The Den all have great places to eat, and even healthy places. I like those the most.

It Has Everything – Texas State has some of everything and I have yet to witness any sort of racism or discriminatio.

Greatly Varies – Freshman dorms are not good at all. They're small (10ft by 10ft, that you share with another person) with community bathrooms, no elevators, etc. Upperclassmen dorms are nice. Most are apartment style.

Party School – Texas State University is known as a party school. Any day of the week, there's fraternity parties, sorority parties, house parties, river parties. There's also "The Square" or downtown San Marcos with a hookah bar, and clubs.

It Has Everything – I came to Texas State mostly for the location. Right by the outlet mall, the river, and in the middle of Austin and San Antonio. What more could a girl want! The reason I am still here is because of the professors who care, and make class interesting, the semi easy registration, and lots of help for our classes.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
