Texas State University Reviews
Texas State University is a great school! The campus is beautiful and it is much cheaper than other schools in Texas. The location of the school is also a major plus as well. San Marcos sits right in between San Antonio and Austin which great for those looking for internships in larger cities or to simply hang out in on the weekends. Texas State University also has many great programs and clubs to get involved in and spruce up your resume with. But perhaps it's greatest strength is that while Texas State is the fifth largest school in Texas, it still has a more intimate feel to it, a sentiment expressed by many students. It isn't like a huge campus where you feel you are just number in the system, it definitely has a genuine community feel to it. Overall my experience at Texas State has been great, I'd encourage anyone to come check it out!
Besides being an incredibly beautiful campus, Texas State has a great selection of majors (one of the many reasons I choose this school), amazing professors that go above and beyond, and some of the friendliest students around. The first time I visited the campus my parents and I got lost and I asked a girl walking beside me for directions and she answered me with a big smile on her face. Honestly, I love it here! The only thing that can get a little annoying is all of the walking you have to do to get around, but that can be avoided with the shuttles they run across and off campus! Overall, I could not recommend this school enough.
This University is fantastic, the staff and faculty are great contributions to a pleasant environment that encourages student growth. Considering that I was given a job opportunity even before I graduated I believe this is a brilliant return of investment. Even the workforce finds Bobcats favorable over longhorns!
