Texas State is one of the fastest growing large schools in the country with enrollment exploding from 25,000 students in 2002 to over 38,000 students today with almost 41,000 students projected by 2025. As an Emerging Research University, Texas State offers its faculty and students opportunities for discovery and innovation anchoring an emerging high-tech base for San Marcos and the I-35 corridor.
