What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion on Sam Houston State University is , it’s a small town but it’s full of loving people . I came there to get an education , I was so new to everything. Everyone you meet always had a smile on their faces . In any college you always have to be consistent with your work to be successful. The teachers tried their best to make sure students understood what’s going on in the class , they was always there when you needs them. When you make mistakes they give you a second chance depending on how dedicated your are . But unfortunately I wasn’t able to finish my freshmen because my family was paying out of school and everything was hard but my goal is to go back and finish . Made a goal to apply for as many scholarships as possible to have the money to go back and finish what i started. Other then that I love the school and I would love to go back if I had the chance to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a music major, I love my classes and the people I'm surrounded by. The classes are the perfect size, and all of my professors know me. The students take their studies seriously, and the music program is famous for how many great musicians it puts out into the field, whether it's in music education, music therapy, or music performance. It truly is a wonderful atmosphere to be in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam houston is a wonderful school. The campus is big enough for a ton of opportunities but small enough to have everything you need with in a mile. The people are great and the educational options are plentiful. The safety is also a huge plus. There are stations around the campus and 24/7 on call officers to escort you if you are feeling unsure.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State is not that bad of a school, there are lots of people who are kind but there really isn't much to do around campus. It's in a small city, so not many places to visit. It does have a few options for food other than eating in one of the cafeterias. So that's okay. Overall, the campus is okay.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is good at what is does and does not try to act like an arts school. It is a Criminal Justice school and it does it well. There are other things to doon campus but most activities will happen off campus. There isn't much in variety but if you enjoy the City and don't mind the prison being there then it is a great place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston is an overall laid back academic environment. There are lots of places on campus to study and meet with friends and there is an ample amount of resources available to all students. The campus is incorporated into the surrounding community, making Sam feel like a real home away from home. The professors are excellent and actively engage their students in conversation. Professors work with the students and offer assistance outside of the classroom which is especially helpful to those with a busy class/work schedule.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston is a good school. It gets the job done. The organizations on campus that I have found so far have been welcoming and helpful. They allow me to further education outside of the classroom and outside of my major. The students are great at encouraging each other to achieve their goals. The teachers encourage you to come to their office hours and seek help from them and from the services on campus to better your education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's the size of my pinky and named after an asshole who once made Houston the state capital for his ever-growing ego. What do you think? For 137 years, Sam Houston State University motto, “The Measure of a Life is its Service,” echoes across the Huntsville campus. Of course there is historical roots through the ruins of the original buildings and rubble. Plus, it's right next to death row, A.K.A. Texas State Penitentiary at Huntsville nicknamed "Walls Unit." It is operated by the Correctional Institutions Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, administered as within Region I. The facility, the oldest Texas state prison, opened in 1849. The unit houses the State of Texas execution chamber. It is the most active execution chamber in the United States, with 548 (as of February 1, 2018) executions since 1982, when the death penalty was reinstated in Texas. Such a wonderful place!
