"Pre-Course selection does not give you much description to know what your getting into, until class starts and you get the syllabus. Courses have much breadth. Not depth. Many do not follow a path, especially for professional licensure programs. Some Professors set up curriculum as they know it, not from the perspective as a learner. The (I know it, you should know it attitude) Online courses are an extreme example of the aforementioned. You are at each course Professors mercy."

"I cannot recommend Texas State University enough. The campus is just as wonderful inside as it is out (you know that a river runs through it, right?!) Texas State is a large university, but when you're enrolled, it feels tight-knit. Your professors know your name and care about your future. I continue to keep up communication with mine. In addition, many of the programs offer hands-on involvement on campus and out in the community. For example, students studying child-life can often be found running the on-campus day care programs. Many student studying biology are on the river studying San Marcos' marine life! Texas State University is a special place that will enrich your life beyond your college years."

"I would highly recommend this program and university to others. It is the only program of its kind in Texas and the faculty and staff are superb. As a whole, Texas State is a beautiful campus, and San Marcos is lovely place to live during your college years. I would recommend this school/program to anyone."

"Texas State University takes pride in its education system and I genuinely would like to applaud its Mass Communication and Journalism program. All of the professors have worked in their specific field for many years and are determined to teach you everything they know through their lectures and teachings."

"Texas State's ESS program is a great program for anyone who is looking to learn more about the human body and how it reacts with exercise and movement. They offer different degrees catered towards multiple different career fields such as personal training, pre-physical therapy, recreational therapy, cardiac rehab, and many others. On top of the many options, professors in this department are passionate and knowledgeable in the areas they teach in. The ESS programs at Texas State are challenging but rewarding once completed. You will find yourself leaving with much more knowledge than when you began in an area of study that interests you. The biggest downfall to this program is how far the ESS building is from the main campus. The ESS building is secluded from the rest of campus making it difficult if you have classes in both the ESS building and on main campus. On the bright side, you are right next to the San Marcos River. I highly recommend the ESS program at Texas State University."

"The Department of Sciology at Texas State is remarkable and uniqe. They've gathered a passionate, insightful group of academics who excel in both research and education. In the program we have specialists in urban sociology, art and culture, mental health and addiction, globalization, and sustainability. Many of the faculty are national leaders in their field and are eager to share their perspective and inspire student. I chose to remain at Texas State to pursue a graduate degree in sustainability from this department because I believe there is nowhere else that offers the opportunities and advantages available here at Texas State."

"I really enjoyed my time at Texas State University. I ended up getting my degree in marketing . I would have liked to have changed my major but was too far invested to change. At the time of graduation I felt well prepared to find a job related to my major but chose to go a different direction."

"Texas State University is a very unique university due its location in the middle of the Texas Hill Country. The beautiful campus rolling with hills has a river, the San Marcos River, running right through it that is fueled by an all natural fresh water spring that pumps water out at a consistent temperature year around. The location of the university allows for its students to enjoy not only the river, but also enjoy travel to Austin and/or San Antonio, both located only thirty minutes from campus. Texas State is known as the Rising Star of Texas, and this motto adequately depicts the educational experience one is guaranteed. Every professor at Texas State is meticulous in their instruction methods and are dedicated to providing you with the material you need in order to succeed in your prospected field. Texas State processes a top 5% business school and one of the most competitive physical therapy schools in the nation. Along with post-graduate study/research opportunities, the university provides one with unimaginable networking opportunities as it one of the largest universities in Texas. It is safe to say I along with many others have had a phenomenal educational experience and feel prepared to enter the work force thanks to Texas State. It is an ultimate underdog in terms of ranking compared to other colleges, but is a growing university that will soon be the cream of the crop."

"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."
