    Research wisely and pray about your decision. Also, keep in mind what you want to major in. Though TSU is well known around Texas, it doesn't have as many major options as University of Texas at Austin or Texas A&M. If you're looking to be an education major- this is the place to be. If you're interested in engineering programs, you might want to look elsewhere for more options in that field.

    Bring comfortable shoes. The campus is beautiful, but Texas Hill Country is no joke! There are bunches of stairs and hills, and plenty of room between buildings. Its often said here that the freshman fifteen is what you lose from the hills! Also, be sure to really utilize the staff. Texas State has every type of assistance a student could ask for, and they are all full of southern hospitality and a love for the job.

    Do not miss the scholarship deadline and make sure to apply early. Accumulate as many outside scholarships as you can along with applying to your FAFSA on time or even early.
