"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."

"Texas State University's curriculum for their degree program for a Master's in Business & Administration (MBA) is a solid foundation for anyone looking to improve their career. The staff has the expertise and cares about their students. The Round Rock campus has more adult learners and therefore can be easier to work with sometimes."

"It's not a big name brand, but you'll get a solid curriculum and teachers who care. Bonus if you are at the Round Rock campus because the student population tends to skew towards working adults rather than "straight-through" students who just finished their undergrads, meaning the students at RR tend to be more proactive and engaged with their education."

"I am currently enrolled in Texas State University's evening MBA program at the Round Rock campus. This is a highly underrated school and is comparable to other, more prestigious schools in the area for a fraction of the cost. The professors are engaging, the coursework is challenging and applicable and my fellow students are some of the most interesting and intelligent peers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I recommend Texas State's part-time program for any working professional who is seeking a greater understanding of business practices and a stronger set of leadership skills."

"Texas State is the best university in the state of Texas to attend and pursue your degree. I attained my BA and MBA from Texas State. The professors are the best and always make time to help you if you have any questions on assignments. The location is the best!"

"Small classes made for a very interactive learning experience. Loved having night classes so I could work during the day, however having some classes only available online could be frustrating because it seemed it was the classes you needed the hands on experience with that were only online."

"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."

"The Communication Disorders program at Texas State University is a great program. The staff and faculty are completely invested in each individual student and go out of their way to make sure that everyone succeeds. The program was recently awarded an 8 year re-accreditation by the Council of Academic Accreditation in Audiology and Speech Pathology."

"Attending a Texas State University has had a tremendous positive impact on my life. Through showing up to class consistently and on time, I had the opportunity to build professional relationships with professors that will last well into my career. Texas State faculty and staff are constantly available and willing to help you gain the knowledge and experience you need in order to be as successful as you can be. The atmosphere throughout the campus is a positive one in which you have the opportunity to meet a lot of great people. Overall, the University is on the fast track to being one of the best in Texas."

"Texas State University has truly impacted me in such unimaginable ways. I am currently attending graduate school at Texas State for Counseling, with a focus on couples, marriage and family therapy. My undergraduate experience was filled with opportunities to interact with professionals working in my field, something which greatly helped to solidify my career path. I was involved in multiple student organizations and the Psi Chi international honor society. I worked full time while attending school. My job (which I still currently work at) was made available to me through networking in the Psi Chi honor society. Texas State provided me with the tools and support to complete an undergraduate thesis, of which I presented at a national research conference my senior year(Texas State also funded my trip). Texas State holds a special place in my heart, I am truly proud to call my self an alumni of this university."

"In today's workforce many degree's are not valued. It is to my dismay that I did not find a degree with good earning potential so that I could provide for myself. If I had a penny I would send it to Texas State to let them know that's how much my degree is worth. Luckily, I can move on and earn a Master's and that's exactly what I need to do now, and I need the money to do it."
