I think the best think about Texas State University is the atmosphere of the campus. The diversity and friendliness of everyone makes is a great place to learn and share ideas with people. The campus is absolutely beautiful and the professors and people are always in a good mood. The professors really care about their students interests more than just going through the normal routines. If you're a social person, Texas State is definitely the place to be. The people really do love to collaborate and learn from each other. A tip for incoming freshman is to definitely stay focused on their studies and not the weekend! There are many places to go on the weekends such as "The Square" if you do have the free time but just remember to not procrastinate any assignments or studying that needs to be done!

I have really enjoyed my time at Texas State. Everything from Sewell park to the square, or downtown San Marcos, become great places to hangout with friends or meet new ones. A favorite memory I have was jumping into the San Marcos river in January last year, at a balmy 72 degrees in mid winter it was awesome. If you plan coming to Texas make sure you are VERY comfortable with stairs because that is the main complaint from incoming freshman, but by the time your senior year rolls around you will appreciate the calves of steel.
