I am in an online doctoral degree, but I had a niece go there and she loved it. I am excited to have to opportunity to take classes online and the instructors and director that I met seem amazing and accessible. I would like to do the review again after a semester or two.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Sam Houston State University is extraordinary. Sam Houston has so many extracurricular activities, clubs/organizations, and the school spirit is very strong. The whole environment of the school is very welcoming and there are many students and staff there that encourage you and help with your struggles and adjustments. The college has many helpful resources for the students too, such as a medical center, financial aid assistance, tutoring groups, etc. Sam Houston is an amazing school in my opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Here, the rooster crows serve as alarm clocks and compete with student pedestrians on the sidewalks. We know when it is lunch time thanks to the headcount whistle from the nearby prison (though many have learned to simply tune it out). It is beautiful in the fall, with the sun slanting lazily through thickets of leaves, falling in dappled constellations across old Georgian buildings, from which issue the sounds of students and professors wrestling with thorny issues of race, gender, and politics. Wide, sloping green lawns divide the hilly campus into its various sections, and it is pleasure to walk to and fro in this landscape. This pleasure, however, is occasionally marred by protestors from a nearby church who will climb atop parapets and shout in protest of women's rights to their bodies, gays, and sin in general. Yet, there is a pleasingly diverse mix of opinions and people on this campus, for its modest size and rural backdrop. I am an atypical student, in a sense, as I began my undergraduate degree in my late twenties, yet I never felt out of place in this world. I would not have made it to graduation without the ample support of certain faculty members, whose friendship I will always treasure. I really enjoyed my time at Sam Houston State University.

Sam Houston State University is amazing. The people are super friendly , and everything you'd need food/fun wise is within close driving distance. SHSU is not overcrowded, nor is it a "ghost town". Sam Houston State provides their students with a comfortable and safe learning environment that allows them to flourish in all areas of their lives. Overall ,this school is the perfect mix of strong academia and awesome social experiences!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current student at Sam Houston State University and I can say without a doubt that SHSU is a wonderful place to call home. The professor to student ratio is the perfect size, the campus does not make you feel overwhelmed, and everyone at Sam Houston does their best to help you be the best version of yourself. Sam Houston has given me so many opportunities that I would not have had if I had gone to a larger university. I was able to join greek life and take a leadership position, work with the baseball team, hold a part-time job, feed the homeless once a week, attend church bi-weekly, and have a social life all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. I was so pleased with all of the faculty and professors at Sam Houston. Everyone that I encountered truly wanted to help me and my journey through college. Although the food on campus might not be the best, and Huntsville itself is relatively small; the people themselves are what make Sam Houston one of the best universities in Texas. I am so thankful that I took a chance on Sam Houston and am eternally grateful for the opportunities the school has provided me. Eat 'em up Kats!
