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!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is a great college for criminal justice majors and forensic science majors. The campus is quiet and safe. There is not much to do in the town, but Huntsville is not too far from the Woodlands or Houston. The class sizes are relatively small, and the professors are usually friendly and very helpful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SHSU is a decent campus in terms of academics, and it has majors that most colleges in Texas don't offer. I'm not a fan of Huntsville, as it's practically devoid of anything fun to do, but luckily it's within driving distance of other towns like Conroe and College Station.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is a pretty good school overall. I am lucky enough to be a part of the best Theatre Program in the state of Texas and I couldn't ask for more. There are also plenty of employment opportunities on campus if you regularly go after them.

Overall the campus is pretty nice. It's a little scary to go through campus at night. One thing i absolutely hated about the school was their school spirit, there wasn't any. Homecoming weekend was a major bore. But other than that school was pretty amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like attending Sam Houston. I find myself really having to surround my self with good people in order to get what I need done and not get side tracked, because there is always something to do there. There are a few things that happen at Sam Houston that make people be on edge but every college has those days. Overall I really like being a part of the Sam Houston family.
