I love the diversity of campus. I wish it wasn't on the hill. It's just right. Growing up in the next town over, a lot of the parents of people I graduated with still call it Southwest. I spend most of my time in the Theatre, LBJ and the Quad. San Marcos is definitely centered around the university! I haven't had any direct correlation lately with any of the administration. Since the Texas Primaries is in a few days, every political ideology has been sparring in the Quad. You can't walk from one building to another without seeing someone in a Texas State shirt. I believe thinking something as "unusual" is very subjective. My entire experience at Texas State will be memorable. Everyone always complains about the hill.
The professors in your major will know your name; don't expect your general core professors to learn it. My favorite class thus far is Characterization with Laura Lane. I didn't really like any of my general core classes, but there required. Every student has different study habits. In smaller classes you are expected to participate, but not in the larger general core classes. Again, every student is different; you can pass some students having intellectual conversations and then hear how wasted another was last night. Humans by nature are competitive creatures. Characterization is the most unique class I've taken at Texas State. The Theatre Department is relatively small, so everyone knows everyone for the most part. There is a mentoring program for BFA Acting so you can have one-on-one meetings with professors. Most are more than happy to meet with you outside of class. I don't agree with the General Core requirements, but most public universities require it. I think it's both.
There is a group for everything and everyone. If you're unhappy here it's because you're not making an effort to meet anyone. Who cares what most students wear? It's very diverse so different "types" of students must interact. What kind of a question is that? People find an open seat to eat, who cares who's sitting there? Most are Texans. Middle class students. Again, there is a great political diversity at Texas State and it is different for each student. I have no idea.
