    Texas State is a beautiful campus. It is bigger than what it looks but not too big. Everything is pretty close to each other and there are so many things you can get involved in.

    I absolutely love being at Texas State. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, and theirs organizations out there to fulfill anyone's interests. There are a few traditions here, not as many as I would like. One of the biggest and personally I think the most fun is the tailgating before the game. Also with our football team going D1 entering the WAC, I think next fall semester will be even more eventful.

    I love the feeling of a small town that is why I personally chose San Marcos! The town is beautiful as is the campus. You have the river to go relax whenever you want and you have Austin and San Antonio at the tip of your fingers for a great night!
