Question 1: The university has a record enrollment of 35,568 students this semester. How has this increased enrollment affected you?
“Personally, I think it’s awesome that there’s that many people at our school. I guess, like, parking is the biggest thing. There are just so many kids and I’m pretty sure we’ve sold more parking permits than we have actual parking spaces. I think that’s the only dilemma.”
Question 2: Should the university continue to grow?
“Yeah, because it’s good. That’s awesome that there are so many people here at Texas State and I mean, we are expanding, like, all the construction that’s going on and new dorms...so yeah…”
Question 3: Did the size of the university influence your decision to come here?
Question 4: Does the increase in population at Texas State affecte your commute to and from campus?
"Oh, yes! I live at the Heights II so literally I have waited for three busses to pass because they’re always really packed. We just, like, jam pack ourselves on there so I think that is a really big hassle. It’s just ridiculous that we’re all just like little sardines rushing for the bus.”
Question 5: How do you think this issue can be resolved?
“More busses. That’s the only thing I can think of.”
