Growth at Texas State

In the fall of 2013, a record-setting enrollment of 35, 568 was announced at Texas State University in San Marcos. 

This enrollment exceeded last year's number by more than a thousand. 

This is the 16th year in a row that Texas State has had record enrollment. 

“We take our role in preparing the next-generation work force in Texas very seriously, so it is gratifying to see that so many incoming students are choosing to attend Texas State,” Texas State Univeristy President Denise M. Trauth said.

Growth at Texas State is viewed as positive and some students had their opinion on the matter, some not so positive. 

"Its kind of annoying. Parking sucks. 
Luckily I live at the vistas so I can walk to class. Otherwise I'd be screwed," said senior Gina Adibi.

When asked if the university should continue to grow, Annat Rosenthal said it should grow physically because she does not believe that the school can accommodate all the students.

"Trying to find space in all of my classes has been hard, 
especially in my music classes," said sophomore Derek Thigpem. 

"If we keep increasing professors and classes, it has to be proportional. 
 We have to focus on quality" Chelsea Marshall.

Trauth said the new high in student enrollment demonstrates that Texas State continues to be a leading university in the state. 

"Students and their families recognize our institution offers both an outstanding educational experience as well as an exceptional value," she said.
