Interview w/ a Texas State University Sophomore
Bright Academia Interview Texas State University Sophomore
Name: Kikee Auviance Taylor (Ki’Auviance Taylor)
Major: Applied Sociology
1. Why did you pick Texas State University? Where if any, other schools did you apply too?
I chose Texas State University due to the culture, I visited the campus after getting accepted and I love how friendly people were and how amazing the campus appeared, also the school a good institute so this was my new home (: I applied and got accepted to many schools Chicago State, Clark Atlanta, Spellmen, and PVU just to name a few.
2. Now that you are a sophomore, how is your mindset different from Freshman year?
I am now more focused on school and I know how to better manage my time. I make more realistic decision, studying before partying oppose to the opposite I used to do freshman year. I’d say grades over anything, you have your whole life to party.
3. Did you live on campus last year, if you did, did you keep the same roommate? If you commuted to campus, what did you learn least year about commuting to campus that gets you to campus this year, quicker or with an easier route?
I changed roommates.. people are crazy I’d rather live alone. Bobcat tram is amazing but I do wish the buses will make more runs.
4. Now that you’ve been on campus for more than a year, have you joined any student organizations or sports teams? How did you get interested in them? If you haven’t joined any, what do you do in your free time to socialize with other students?
I’ve joined Gamma Sigma Sigma national service sorority but I’d really suggest going to meetings and hanging out with organizations oppose to joining… sometimes it can be very stressful
5. Most students select a major their sophomore year, have you selected one yet, or do you have one you’re leaning towards?
I just changed my major.
6.As a sophomore what skills have you picked up since freshman year that help you day to day on campus (time management skills, how to network, studying at a certain time etc.)
I feel I am now more competent to make wiser decisions in studying and focusing on graduation.
7. What is there to do on the weekends at Texas State? Parties, student organizations, visit home?
First off SLEEP thats the main thing I use my weekends for but also I’d say work to make that mula to spend it all on tuition, rent, bills, and shopping at the outlets. Partying is a duh for college so I won’t deliberate on that much but I’d say go outside the box. Go skating in Austin, paintball gunning or something amazingly fun along those lines.
8. If there is one thing you would like to add to Texas State University what would it be? Then one thing you think the campus could do without?
I’d add more buses because they get full to soon and make us late for class due to that. I’d also add a nap headquaters aside from the one in the den. Greek organization in trouble for hazing, mainly white fraternities should have their houses taken away due to foul use and such and also black greek organizations should be treated the same as all other orgs, why don’t they have greek houses? Well I don’t know what else to add besides that but I’d say take away the non smoking ban. I hate smokers and the smell but clearly the “rule” is not being enforced and ignant, yes I spelled ignant students still smoke and try to pass on the second hand cancer to me, I hate it and it angers me but clearly who ever set the ban doesn’t care enough to enforce it so stop wasting my money on all these signs that just take up space, and money. Get real Texas State University.
9. What are some the best kept secrets on campus (ie. Free places to print, best teachers, etc. Places/people/things that you think people don’t know about on campus but really should)?
There are no secrets this is jut a rad university.
10. In San-Marcos or on campus, where is your favorite place to go when you’re not studying, and you just want to hang out with your friends?
Club Alkek is the juke joint! Point Blank Period.
