I love the people. I don't think I have met one person who has given me a hard time.

There is absolutely no available parking to commuter students you have to park in the two hour parking zones.

WHAT I LIKED

It was a somewhat big campus but the overall environment gave it the feeling of it being a smaller college.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

That it was built on top of a hill so you're constantly walking up some kind of incline

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

I love that even though this school is known as a party school, you don't always see that. I personally haven't been to any parties and I am still enjoying myself on campus hanging out with friends and joining student organizations.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

When touring the campus I didn't know that there were so many hills. If you come here, you have to make sure that you have some good stamina to keep up with all the walking.

The teachers I have had so far are all so helpful and nice to us. They are available in class and during some work hours to make sure you are doing things right and if not, they are there to help explain it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are lots of stairs here in texas state so be aware of that.
