There are many programs offered at Texas State. Depending on what your field of studies are going to be, you can have classes ranging from 20-300 students. The workload will definitely vary from course to course but you'll find that it doesn't matter if the subject you are working on interests you. The professors in the very large classes will always answer questions when asked just like the small classes so don't be shy to ask a question! You can sit in the back or front of the auditoriums in the large classes and you will still hear the professors fine with the speakers throughout the room.

I like to think of this school as a bunch of weekend warriors. Those who go out and have a good time on the weekend but focus and take of what needs to be done during the week. I definitely fall into this category and am able to handle both fairly well but I've seen numerous people lose focus of why they came to school in the first place. I'm in the geography department which is fantastic! I haven't had one geography related teacher that wasn't great at what they do. As for my other professors I've only had one super difficult class mainly because of the professor. Yet for nearly all of the classes at Texas state, if you go to class take decent notes and study some what for the tests at least a b is your future.
