Texas State University — Director, Career Services

With a student population of over 38,000, Texas State University is an Emerging Research and Hispanic-Serving University located in the burgeoning Austin-San Antonio corridor. Founded in 1899 and currently the 16th largest public institution in the United States in terms of undergraduate enrollment, Texas State enrolls students from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and 66 countries. Students choose from 98 undergraduate, 90 master’s, and 12 doctoral programs offered by ten colleges (Applied Arts, the Emmett and Miriam McCoy College of Business Administration, Education, Fine Arts and Communication, Health Professions, Honors, Liberal Arts, Science and Engineering, the Graduate College, and the University College). With a diverse campus community, including just over 50 percent of the student body from ethnic minorities, Texas State is one of the top 14 producers of Hispanic baccalaureate graduates in the nation. Ideally situated on almost 600 acres across two campuses (San Marcos and Round Rock), Texas State is in the midst of the largest construction program in its history, experiencing an exciting period of growth with approximately $659 million in new construction, renovation, and expansion. The main campus in San Marcos boasts 209 buildings, including 24 campus residence halls and apartments.

Ranked as one of the fastest growing small cities in the U.S. in three of the past five years by the U.S. Census Bureau and listed in Forbes 2018 Best Places to Retire, San Marcos combines small-town charm with big-time energy. Located along the crystal-clear San Marcos River roughly halfway between Austin and San Antonio and on the edge of the famous Texas Hill Country, San Marcos offers its 60,000+ residents the best of everything. With the area being widely known for hiking trails, spectacular views, fields of wildflowers, world-class gourmet dining, and a rich cultural history, it is no wonder the Texas State students call it “San Marvelous!”
