Texas State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (33)
Texas State was amazing! I have never considered going there, but when I stepped on campus for a tour, I was sold. It was big enough to get new experiences, with the feel of a smaller school. The care and passion from all staff, faculty, and students is refreshing. The quality experiences inside and outside of the classroom is hard to find and their commitment to student success is proven everyday!
Loved college. Loved the challenges. I had to learn to manage time which is one of my greatest strengths now. Always strive to make time for everything. It is possible, you just have to learn to prioritize and even delegate at times.
Texas State is honestly a good school to go to. They campus is very diverse and offers many different degrees. I would choose Texas State all over again, given the chance.
I love Texas State! I am proud that I graduated from a four year, accredited university. I took mostly online courses, but the time on campus made me wish I had taken all my courses there. The faculty actually care that you graduate and it's not all about your tuition. The campus is beautiful and remodeled to fit our new aged lifestyles. When I was attending, there weren't many schools offering online courses, so they were ahead of the game then and even for those times, using the best of technology. I'm sure now it's even better!
I would recommend Texas State to anyone, as someone who enjoyed balancing studies with outdoor activities. The location of the campus was situated right in the Hill Country giving it some beautiful views from the upper hills. It is also close enough to Austin and San Antonio for day trips and also allows you to have good access to public transportation. It really is a great area to live and study. The university has some great professors in the liberal arts, education, business, and criminal justice fields. The campus is big enough to offer many different programs, but small enough to where you don't feel overcrowded in a huge university. You can definitely see the growth at the university in both students and buildings by seeing how many new cranes show up on campus. Really is a great time to become a part of the Texas State family. It's always a great day to be a Bobcat!
Loved the college campus but the Social Work department is a hit or miss. Some great professors and some professors that didn't teach and instead just told stories. TX State has a lot to offer on campus, especially outdoor activities.
It's a medium sized college, coming from a big city I loved how close everything and everyone was. The river scene was so fun, a great way to get away for the evening or whatever time! Being so close to the water felt great.
The program was very industry oriented. It helped me to better understand the nature of healthcare, the challenges it would face and gave me skills to better deal with those challenges once employed. I did feel that there was an under emphasis on data and the importance it has played in healthcare and my current role as a business analyst. I work with data and try to solve data issues every day and that was not taught in class.
This school has a rich history and great reputation. The programs are up to date and organized to give you the skills needed to achieve your goals.
It was okay. There wasn't enough investment in the sciences. The student government had way too much power to spend tuition money or make decisions about campus financial contracts.
