Geoffrey’s Thoughts on Texas State
Why Texas State
I love the friendly atmosphere and beautiful campus of Texas State. The university community really does feel like it’s one big extended family.
I would like to be a mathematics professor, preferably one at Texas State!
I commute to Texas State from Austin about twice a week. After a 45-minute drive, I arrive at 8 a.m. and study for an hour in the University Honors Forum. Afterward, I head off to my first class. Next, I break for lunch before attending an afternoon lecture. Then, I hang out for a few hours at St. Jude's Chapel and attend the Holy Sacrifice of Mass. Finally, I go to my evening classes, eating supper between them. I get back home around 10 p.m. and promptly go to sleep.
Honestly, all the professors are humble, approachable and cheerful, at least the ones I have had for classes. I have yet to meet a professor I truly haven’t liked.
Where I Relax
I enjoy the Forum, which is a coffeehouse for students in the University Honors Program, because it is a quiet place to work. A lot of my friends hang out there, and it's a good place to strike up a conversation.
What I Tell Future Texas State Students
I advise them that selecting the right college is profoundly important. If they want to attend a university dedicated to both academic pursuit and personal growth, they should visit and investigate Texas State.
