Didn't Participate – I didn't really participate in the typical college nightlife. I have been in a long-term relationship for well over two years, and since he went to a college nearby, I usually went there to visit him. And when I wasn't with him, I hung out with friends who also had long-term boyfriends and weren't interested in the nightlife.

The teachers have so far all made in-class lectures fun and interesting, the course load is not very rigorous as far as homework, though, there is a lot of reading required. There are also often many internship offers and extra credit opportunities due to studies being done by graduate students or a colleague of your professors.

The curriculum at this campus is just as an other campus would have. The teachers are there before and after class to provide additional assistance, but you have to make the effort needed to pass the class.

San Marcos Texas is a great college town. The students that attend this school, are very outgoing and enjoy having a good time on and off campus. Being that San Marcos is a smaller town, we are fortunate to have bigger cities such as Austin and San Antonio within 30 miles of our campus. The cool part about our school is it is in the heart of Texas which also is the reasoning behing our hand signs that represents our school. We love to party and have a good time, which helps make the college experience that much more.

On-Campus Apartments – I enjoyed living in on-campus apartments at Texas State. They have different complexes to choose from and they are all really nice. The people in the office were always friendly and helpful and the apartments were well taken care of

Classes Are Awesome – I'm in the Exercise and Sports Science program at Texas State University and I love it! All of my professors are great. They all know what they are talking about and really take the time to help you and teach you well. They also know how to make class fun so you actually enjoy going to class. they aren't afraid to challenge you and you leave class everyday with new knowledge

Before going Greek, you are a normal person. After going Greek, you still are that same person. Some people use their letters to an advantage... but then those are the ones who cross when they are a senior and know they are about to be out of school. Greek Life at Texas State is fairly chilled and the Greeks (myself included) are very cool people. Parties all the time yet still passing our classes... some (myself included) are even on the deans list, president's honor roll, and even a senator on campus.

I Don't Live Off-Campus – But.... i heard that off-campus housing is really great. The apartments are cheaper than the dorms. There is also an bobcat tram that comes around every apartment so that students can get to campus at a pleasurable time.

It Is AMAZING! There are a lot of off-campus dining options right near the school. Every fast food restaurant you could ever think of is within a 5-15 minute walking distance of campus! You get a discount with your school i.d. We also have restraunts that other schools don't have. For restaurants that aren't close to campus, there is collegedelivery.com to get food sent to you!

Campus Itself – It is a great campus, even though there are a lot of stairs, but I love walking, so it's not a big problem. All the scenary is great, and it makes it feel very welcoming.

Rainy days, just make me feel gloomy, which is why I much rather it be sunny!

Walking through campus is sometimes faster than taking the bus, you get more exercise walking up and down steps. Plus the campus is small enough to make the walk not seem as long.

Drugs and Alcohol – All colleges experience it, its normal to see. If you freak out about it, then you're not ready for college.

New Apartments – Recently since I have attended TSU two new apartment complexes have been built making it easier to find an apartment.

Socrates Who? The frats and sororities can be found anywhere on campus and tend to throw the most extravagent parties, rarely rivaled by any non-member.

Guys & Girls:
Domain of Appearances – Full of excitement and wonder as one ventures into the collegiate waters of Texas Sate University at San Marcos one immediately finds an eclectic group of exotic individuals, both in beauty and personality. Appealing as they may be on the surface very few can be probed much further intellectually. It is a school of the night life not of the stuffy parlors in which on would find the conversation of abstruse philosophies.

Our computer access is very beneficial. Texas State has everything organized and makes the use of the computer rather easy.

The people who work in the Financial aid building can be somewhat slow and unresponsive during the beginning of semesters, understandably so. They also do not mention scholarship opportunities available unless you first bring them up.

Health & Safety:
Health and Concerns – The student health center has been a great addition to the campus. Although prices have increased their services are commendable and they treat every patient with care and respect. Very few incidents on our campus as the campus police station is located in central campus. Since the students and faculty here are very friendly, there is a natural safe feeling when on campus.

The athletic facilities are constantly a work in progress. As the school moves toward a higher division in sports, the university does its best to improve the buildings accordingly, having distinct buildings for football, basketball, tennis, etc. The dining halls are above average but could also use improvement. The library and student center definitely serve their purpose and are both resourceful. In general, Texas State has a beautiful campus that will continue to strive to be top notch.

Its Could Be Better I Guess – well there really is no strict rules the only rules are not to use phones in classrooms

IT'S A STATE SCHOOL, SO TUITION IS SOMEWHAT AFFORDABLE IN COMPARISON TO OTHER SCHOOLS. AS AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT, TUITION COST IS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE FOR ME, SO I HAD TO BASE MY DECISION BASED ON SCHOOLS WITH LOWER TUITION COSTS. REGARDLESS MY TUITION IS STILL EXPENSIVE BECAUSE I'M CURRENTLY PAYING NON RESIDENT TUITION, BUT IT'S ALSO A BIT CHEAPER THAN THE OTHER SCHOOLS!

OFF CAMPUS DINING IS DECENT IN COST, CONVENIENT, AND THERE ARE SEVERAL CHOICES FOR STUDENTS.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
