Texas State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (35)
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 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.
