Texas State is a very diverse school which is a big reason why I applied and went here. I believe that being a minority around other minorities would make me feel safer and more comfortable this was not the case. The students on campus are very open and friendly people but the campus police and staff are not so much. In one incident there were white supremacists on campus who started a fight but the people who were defending themselves were the ones that got arrested.
The campus is really nice but parking is terrible.
The graduate college often organizes events specifically for graduate students too, including classes to aid in research development and career development. The classes are helpful but a variety of these classes would be helpful as well as more variety when in the scheduling of the classes.
