Texas state was my first choice! This schoolQuite BrightSocial Work
Texas state was my first choice! This school has an excellent Social work program. People are friendly for the most part, I think most just keep to themselves. I am a Junior in my major so not sure about the lower levels. What other school in Texas can say they had a president graduate? I feel like the ones who are negative are lazy. Yes, you have to work hard,and show up if you do you will succeed. The cons..parking..not enough, lots of students, and travel. I drive from San Antonio..about 45 min. I chose Texas state over UTSA, and im glad I did.

Reading these comments from people trashing the university,Quite BrightPolitical Science
Reading these comments from people trashing the university, yet graduated 10 years ago, make me want to laugh. This school is undergoing a dramatic shift from being irrelevant to becoming a nationally recognized university. San Marcos was just deemed the fastest growing city in the nation, and it's no question that it is a direct result of the school becoming better. Just in the 3 years I have been here, they have built several new academic buildings, a new performing arts theater, and several new dorms. In regards to my professors, I have had the privilege of having many well-qualified professors, such as one who graduated from Yale Law School and taught at Columbia prior to coming to Texas State. The atmosphere in San Marcos is second to none, as the beautiful hill country snakes through town. The San Marcos river runs right through campus, and the university owns Sewell Park, which is a beautiful place to go swim, play volleyball, grill, or just hang out. Night life in San Marcos is insane, as the square has 10-15 bars to pick from. Greek life here has grown tremendously, as the average chapter size for fraternities is now 80, and 200 for the sororities. All in all, this school is proving itself to be a major contender to UT and A&M, and I would not doubt if it becomes even better than the two in the next 10 years.
