Conveniently located in Central Texas between Austin and San Antonio, San Marcos truly is in the center of everything. So, no matter where you are, you won’t have far to go.
San Marcos has been a favorite destination for more than 12,000 years. An underwater archeological dig in Spring Lake at the Headwaters of the San Marcos River uncovered artifacts dating back to the Clovis Indians, the oldest known inhabitants of the western hemisphere.
San Marcos boasts a unique multicultural heritage and history where Hispanic, African-American, German, Anglo and other cultural influences are a part of everyday life.
Texas State University is the state's fifth largest university with more than 38,000 students. Every day is a great day to be a Bobcat!
