Welcome to the Most Beautiful Campus in Texas
Our surroundings make the Texas State experience truly unique. A quick stroll across our San Marcos campus will lead you past some of the state's greatest treasures:
- The San Marcos River bubbles up from the Edwards Aquifer and flows right through our campus, creating an ideal environment for recreation and research.
- Old Main, our first building, is the centerpiece of a varied and distinct architecture.
- The Wittliff Collections are the premier research repository of Southwestern writers, and the permanent home of the papers of Cormac McCarthy and Sam Shepard.
Though our campus is stunning, what really makes Texas State unique is the people who work here. As a federally recognized Hispanic-Serving Institution we are proud to be part of the changing face of Texas.
