Student & Graduate Reviews

Keimche Wickham - 9/13/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

"There is no better place to attend college than Texas State! The camps feels like home and the professors really show they care about the students and what they want to do with their life's. The San Marcos area is rapidly growing and becoming more and more suitable for college life."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2006
"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."

"Texas State University stands out for their business, aquatic biology, and forensic anthropology programs. The university has one of only a few body farms in the U.S., access to a unique aquatic ecosystem hosting endangered animals and plants and the business school has won many awards. The campus is gorgeous and hilly with a diverse student body that continues to grow. Eat'em up Cats!"

"This was the best decision I've ever made. This college better prepared me than some of the other 'big wig' Texas schools did my colleagues. The professors are all very helpful and the campus is beautiful. 100% recommend-it changed my life for the better."

"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."

Graduation Year: 2008
"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!"
