Texas State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (31)
Texas State University is a fantastic institution. The English department in particular is great, with professors who are committed to uplifting both their students and the University's status. Further, the department's commitment to cultural studies and film programs makes it stand out as a great place for students of all walks of life.
Texas State is an up and coming research facility with around 38,000 students. There is no lack of diversity which is something I personally value. Although some classes are large, the average size of my classes was between 30-50 students. I can personally say that the McCoy College Of Business is highly noted and one of 5% of business schools in the world with AACSB accreditation.
I would recommend this university because of the atmosphere for learning. The tuition cost is not too expensive. It's located between major cities Austin and San Antonio. It's a diverse campus with lots of activities and organizations to get involved in.
I absolutely loved the campus, the river flowing through the campus really made my day so much better, and the people in San Marcos are the nicest people by far. The admissions department could use some work, because when I first got to Texas State I was told I needed to take classes that truly were not in line with my degree plan. The roads in San Marcos have took a bit of a dive as well because they have fairly new ideas on how to turn around to go the opposite direction on I35, a certain intersection has caused many accidents.
Texas State's Urban Planning program prepared me with the technical and analytical skills needed to obtain employment immediately after graduation. The program is geared towards public sector. The program is great for learning GIS/location analysis, and for networking in the central Texas region. This is not a design program.
Texas State University is one of the best public universities in Texas. The university has a diverse faculty as well as the students attending. San Marcos is small town but its home to many students who attend Texas State University. Texas State has one of the best Geography departments in the country.
Desiring to further my education had to be one of the best investments I chosen for myself in my life so far, and I have to thank Texas State University for providing me with that higher education. Sociology and History as my fields of study completely changed my life and how I now view the world and how it works. All of my professors were intelligent, engaging, and helpful when it came to subject matter and applying it to real life. The administration at the university, particularly the financial aid department, was extremely helpful with me on how i was able to pay for my tuition. Last but certainly not least, the atmosphere and physical beauty of the campus is phenomenal and it what attracted me to attend the school in the first place. Texas State has a variety of programs and organizations for its students to join, and the San Marcos river is a mecca for sports, recreation, and hosting social events. Texas State University is a school i would recommend to all students from all different backgrounds as an institution to gain the complete college experience.
Very good university, just big enough to have diversity, but small enough that the teachers know you. I was able to experience many different types of classes and people. I started with one major and ended with another under good advice of the counseling department. Talk with your professors and the staff, they will help you get t g e best out of your education.
Being a non traditional student with a family to care for, I was able to pursue a bachelors degree from Round Rock at their Higher Learning Center with just a semester of travel to the main campus in San Marcos. Some degree plans allow for distance learning without the need to travel to the main campus. The flexibility and options are endless. Highly recommend Texas State Round Rock to either re-enter the professional world or expand career opportunities!
Texas State was an amazing experience. It has so much to offer in terms of support for their students and for their alumni. I was given the opportunity to work with my peers and gain real experience in my field by my sophomore year of college--something many are not able to do. There were the typical frustrations found at any university (such as dealing with the financial aid office) but overall my experience was one of a kind and I wouldn't trade it for the world. My professors were extremely knowledgeable in their areas and were fair in class policies and expectations.
