It gets harder to get classes each yearBrightOther
It gets harder to get classes each year as more and more students are packed in. Parking is a nightmare and the lots get turned into dorms to house more studebts. The busses aren't reliable so be ready to walk. The campus is mostly concrete buildings so no real beauty to speak of.

The professors are mostly pretty good in my ESS major. The student business office, not so much. I have been dropped from classes and fined $100 three months in a row because they didn't know how to process GI Bill paperwork.

The student rec center is a death trap of mbroken machines and has been for four years. You'd think $90 per student would be enough to replace Bron bolts, but no.

And most importantly if you have a daughter coming here, my first year my roommate hit a girl in her apartment and wasn't even reprimanded. The guy just walked in and slapped her. This school let's in anybody. I hear gunshots at night, my neighbor is a convicted child molester, and I've had one of these little shuts pull a knife on me just standing on my porch.

There also isn't much school spirit or Greek life. I never got to see a grey row or be in a pumped up crowd at a football game .

And to top it all off the University Star keeps pumping out racist and antisemitic articles that would make the Grand Dragon a fan.

Texas State is one of the best schoolsBrightEnglish
Texas State is one of the best schools in the state. Ignore the "party rep." That's from the 70s/80s. Some advice: you will THRIVE at Texas State if you break out of your shell and meet others. The community (professors, students, staff) at Texas State is incredible and wants you to succeed. There are so many resources that some people never use (writing center, SLAC lab, free therapy, Witliff Collections, etc.) USE THE RESOURCES. They're built into the cost of tuition. Go to the square. Go to the river. Study hard. College has been the best 4 years of my life.

Texas State was the worst six years ofQuite BrightPsychology
Texas State was the worst six years of my life. The only good thing about going to Texas State was experiencing God and His Love for me through His One True Church, the Catholic Church, and by the intercession of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary and that there were kind people who cared about me and accepted me. God is hated at Texas State, His rights and precepts are despised and ignored(except when a professor wants to attack it). Texas State, like many judaic-masonic colleges in the US, don't teach reality to their students. They teach them a nightmare and call it a utopia. I was part of the student body, but my voice was hardly ever valued, and was disdained by "open-minded" professors who themselves despised the truth. The feminism promoted at Texas State was not only false, since feminism is false always, it was annoying and obnoxious. Many of my psychology courses emphasized communist thinking by consistently bringing up race, class, and gender. Many of my philosophy and a few of my English courses were anti Catholic(I've sat in classes where the teacher blasphemed against God, Our Lady, the Saints, attacked Christians and the Holy Faith) Texas State made me more insecure than I was about myself. I felt that I had to be someone else. What I learned and discovered about going to Texas State was that I did not belong there and that it wasn't for me. I didn't fit in at all with what Texas State valued, and ultimately that's a good thing. However, since what I loved and valued was not taught there, it has set me back spiritually and psychologically. I suffered spiritually and psychologically by going to Texas State, but nobody cares. Much of time is now spent after looking and applying for jobs, learning about the Catholic Faith, harp playing, hand sewing, knitting, writing stories, poems, and proses, reading books that I actually want to read, transcribing, French, and healing spiritually and psychologically. Texas State ate me and spit me out. If you're Catholic, I don't recommend going to college, let alone Texas State. You're better off staying at home.
