What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is an absolutely incredible campus, the people are incredible, the classes, and the organizations. Everyone belongs and has something on campus that they can fit into or even create on their own. Not only is it an incredible campus but it’s also a very welcoming campus. My very first day, plenty of kids welcomed me to the campus and even offered to show me around. SHSU is the nicest campus in town, maybe even in the state. Being here makes me proud to be a bearkat, eat em up Kats!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school has a lot of friendly people. Climbing up the hills to get to certain classes in the heat is TERRIBLE! The food here is alright. The housing that I am currently living in is small, and you can practically hear anyones conversation. The professors seem really nice so far.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a student at Sam, the college experience has been amazing! My first few weeks at Sam were a little confusing and even tiring as the campus was vast and had slopping terrain, but after my first semester ended I came to love the campus life. The students and teachers also made an impression on me as they demonstrated so much pride of their university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is an amazing school out in the wilderness of Texas. Some say that the downsides are it's so far away from the main city (Houston), its a lot of hills to walk, and parking is difficult. But! It's a beautiful campus, full of lush wildlife right next to a national forest. I love how diverse the school is. Businesses tailor to college students and the cost of living is reasonable. Most of the professors have doctorates degrees, lectures are fun and interactive, and the classrooms are decent sized. Overall its a good campus, with wonderful programs from criminal justice to teaching.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston is a safe and fun college! If I could, I'd push everyone to attend. It's really good for academics, school spirit and good vibes overall. I love my college. I love the environment it gives and also the amount of friendships we have a chance to reach out to. The campus itself is pretty amazing due to the hills and nice nature touch.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have just recently started attending Sam Houston, but I have visited a couple of friends throughout the years. The campus is nice, and I have not had a bad experience while there. The campus has recently done some remodeling that looks very nice and welcoming. Overall, I would say that this campus is pretty awesome and inviting. School Spirit is at a very high level, which is always fun. Professors are nice and seem pretty caring, which is not always the case.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I had to transfer schools because SHSU lacked the resources to expand on Computer Science. The school overall is good, and it is definitely affordable in comparison to most other universities, but Sam Houston State only specializes in a few big colleges when it comes to internships, general resources, and overall staff members that can help you in depth. In most STEM degree plans (other than Forensic Chemistry), you'd be lucky if you could take more than one time slot for a course, or even if said course was offered every semester. I still found a great community, and thought the campus itself was great, but if you're not in Criminal Justice, College of Business, or Education, I'd recommend looking into other schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus because it's not too big and not too small. There's a really loving community/group if you choose to get involved and actually get to know people. The motto that Sam lives by is, "The measure of a life is its service," and this is something that people take to heart and manifest in their daily lives. Can be a little rocky at times in the semester, but overall I really do love calling Sam my home away from home.
