All the discussions were 2010 or older and the list was long, so I archived them. Enjoy the new discussion page! Alshain01 (talk) 15:00, 6 December 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The Research University tab needs editing because I know that (atleast one of the campuses of) the University of Houston is already a full research university and has been for many years. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.37.5.30 (talk) 01:34, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Citation to style guide that use of "TSU" is discouraged[edit]

This style guide citation is relevant only to people who are writing on behalf of the university, such as employees of the university for university publications. It's completely irrelevant to anyone who doesn't work for the university or is otherwise subject to following this style guide—and obviously anyone who doesn't work the univeristy can't be subject to it. All that is important is whether the abbreviation "TSU" is sufficiently well-known by the general public as indicating this particular university. 98.169.18.133 (talk) 04:33, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

TSU is discouraged as that abbreviation more often refers to Texas Southern University. If you think otherwise, can you provide reliable sources showing that Texas State is commonly referred to as "TSU"? --TreyGeek (talk) 13:28, 3 February 2013 (UTC)
if it's the case that the public does not use the abbreviation "TSU" it is still inappropriate to cite the official policy in the lead sentence. The purpose if an encyclopedia is not to cite official rules. The solution is to keep the footnote but remove the text. Acsenray (talk) 01:34, 6 February 2013 (UTC)
That's fine by me. --TreyGeek (talk) 01:39, 6 February 2013 (UTC)

2013 Name Change[edit]

A note to anyone coming across this article. As noted in the history section of this article, the Texas legislature and the governor have passed a bill changing the university's name. However, it does not become official until September 1, 2013. Until that time, the school's name still contains "-San Marcos" and this article should not be changed. On/About September 1 a number of changed need to be made throughout this article, including the title of the article. However, again, until that time, no changes should be made to the name of the university in the article. --TreyGeek (talk) 02:18, 15 June 2013 (UTC)

Friday Night Lights[edit]

The fictional TMU of Friday Night Lights was "Texas Memorial University". While anyone with much familiarity with the context probably saw that this school was essentially the fictional equivalent of the University of Texas at Austin, I don't really know of any published reliable sources that explicitly state this. However, it could be that some episode that I don't recall or never saw may mention a "Texas Methodist University", so I am not changing this at this time, but really think that the real Texas State was in fact the campus of the fictional "Texas Memorial". 2600:1004:B12E:AFA8:5171:2E27:1CA0:711E (talk) 01:30, 10 October 2017 (UTC)
