It is the university that you go to when your're smart and/or get screwed by Texas' affirmative action rule.
Then after getting turned down by UT undergrad you get recruited by MIT's graduate finance program and laugh all the way to the bank.

Oh, you got into UT because you were in the top 10%? That's so awesome! I went to Texas State University and loved it.
Texas State University is THE university of choice to blow your load and maintain a 3.0. Hated by the majority of universities in the state, TxState boasts the prettiest campus, best location, and rocking partying reputation. UT and A&M love to say that TxState students couldn't get into their schools, but seeing as the requirements to attend TxState are the exact same requirements as UT, it really just proves the point that we don't like to hang with goats fuckers, Wrangler lovers, or ugly theater kids who pretend UT is Ivy League.more...
Why Texas State? Texas State hosts the kids you loathed in high school. We had the nicest cars, parents money, and the nicest bodies. It's not our fault that we would like to congregate at the same school and bask in our awesomeness. Are we vain? Shallow? Fuck yeah we are, and we have the absolute right to be. You may hate us because we party harder, rock tighter bodies, and will STILL get better jobs than you because even if we're here for six years, we can network like the fucking best.
Have any doubts? Other universities TRAVEL to party with our school's elite. River Raft Race in one of the biggest parties nationally, with over 2,000 participants this past year alone. People come from Arizona, Colorado, New Jersey, and even California to see what the fuck we're about for just one weekend.
Still hate our school? Then don't even bother heading out to 6th street in Austin, because we've been dominating that party scene for two decades. UT go...
An amazing college located in the heart of Texas, San Marcos. Many people feel that everyone there wanted to go to UT but couldn't get in...well all of yall are wrong! Most people chose that school (i did) even after being excepted into UT.
One of the hardest schools to transfer into in Texas is Texas State University.
University located in San Marcos where students with below-average grades with a plethora of extracurricular activities attend. If you participated in any extracurricular activity and passed your classes in high school, Texas State University will gladly accept your application for enrollment. Primarily as the school that you attend when denied by top-tier universities such as Texas A&M and UT Austin, Texas State boasts students ranging from the underachievers to the mildly retarded. Students living on-campus participate in a wide variety of activities provided by the residential halls. Requirements of the residential hall include obtaining a certain number of hours of participation in activities that include group dance parties and watching television in the lobby of each res hall. Academic excellence is clearly not the focus at this university.
While partying is a common factor in life both on and off campus at most universities, Texas State has a special niche in this area. All your classmates you despised in high school (jocks, d-bags etc.) are all combined into one university to labeling Texas State as one of the top party schools in the grand state of Texas.
With a mediocre education and a long list of activities such as fratting, partying and making friends, employers will absolutely put a Texas State application towards the top of the application pool. GO BOBCATS!!
Setting: Prospective student meets with Texas State Admissions Counselor...
CAC: So Jimmy what is your class rank?
Jimmy: 250 out of 500
CAC: Oh okay top 50% I see.
Jimmy: Yes, I was preoccupied with football, track and powerlifting.
CAC: Wow! Because of the diversity of your extracurricular activities, you will make an excellent addition to the student body at Texas State University!
Jimmy: Sweet bro. I can't wait to chillax with my broskis and crush keystones on a classic fraturday night.
The renamed "Southwest Texas State University" so that they seem less "localized". Located in San Marcos, TX, approx. 30 minutes south of Austin. Where college students attend when they don't get into the University of Texas.
They have a nationally acclaimed business school. The campus is beautiful but the town is full of Mexicans. Students go to Sixth Street
in Austin or float the San Marcos River for their fun. Texas State has a bit of a "party school" reputation... but in truth it's not any worse/better than and other American University.
Look! I got a 1240 on my SAT and have a 3.5 GPA but I still can't get into UT! I'll just go to Texas State like everyone else does with hopes to transfer.
