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!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is a very beautiful campus. Everyone has that southern friendliness, and that is something I sought out for. I chose this school because it is known for its criminal justice and psychology programs and that it has a small town atmosphere. The classes don't require much, but all of the professors are there to help anytime and tend to be very passionate about what they are teaching. Overall, I'm very glad I chose to attend this school!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like the school but they sometimes to seem to only cared about the school and not the student body. Too much construction makes it impossible to get around and they are not very accommodating to the student body about it. But overall I am happy to be a bearkat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is a great campus to attend. The faculty I have encountered here my first year are all extremely passionate about what they are teaching. There are many activities planned to attend and make friends. The students are for the most part very welcoming to everyone and friendly. If you put in even a small amount of effort to meet new people, you will and there's a beautiful campus to explore with them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my first year at Sam, currently starting my second semester in the spring. I really enjoy being here on campus as there is something always going on, things to do and join, and it is just a great atmosphere. It is a big campus to get to know people but a decent size to know where everything is.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just completed my first semester and overall it went really well. The teachers are helpful and hands-on. They help you adapt the material to your learning style. The campus itself is gorgeous and full of amazing people. Students are very active with clubs and events on campus. It's an all around type of university that won't break the bank.
