What do you like best about San Marcos?
San Marcos has a way of making you feel right at home. This small town will welcome you with open arms and you'll want to stay here as long as you can. It is a beautiful place with many different activities to partake in. San Marcos has something for everyone.

What is your favorite tradition at Texas State? 
The Commencement Jump and Ring Ceremony are my two favorite traditions at Texas State. Dipping our class ring in river water and jumping in the river after graduation with our cap and gown are events I enjoyed. The river plays a big part in our time as a student, so commemorating two such important milestones with the river is something very unique and memorable.
