Review: Texas State UniversityВ–San Marcos (informally Texas State University, or simply Texas State, it discourages the use of TSU) is a doctoral-granting university located in San Marcos, Texas. In fall 2010, the university had a record-high enrollment of 32,586 students. It is the largest institution in the Texas State University System, the sixth-largest university in Texas, and one of the fifty-five largest universities in the United States. For the 2009-2010 year, Texas State University was considered a top producer of Fulbright Fellows when two students became beneficiaries of research grants under the Fulbright Program. Texas State joined three other universities in its category to have all applicants receive fellowships. Additionally, the main campus in San Marcos serves as the location of the fictional school TMU (Texas Methodist University) in the NBC TV series Friday Night Lights. In addition, the University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Texas State University is the only university in the state to have a former President of the United States as an alumnus. President Lyndon B. Johnson graduated from what was then Southwest Texas State Teachers College in 1930 with a teaching certificate and a Bachelor of Science in history. In 1965, he returned to Southwest Texas State College, as the school was known then, to sign the Higher Education Act of 1965.
