What is your overall opinion of this school?

Many people think that since Huntsville is a small town it has nothing to offer. However, that opinion is actually not true. I have grown to fall in love with this campus. Many things will capture your heart and make you fall in love with the campus as well. From the student activity events to the football games, Sam Houston is very enjoyable. On campus housing has resident advisors that will make your transition to the school very easily. They will plan events and try to get students involved. Professors are very caring and understanding. If you do not understand an assignment, they will work with you to help. Professors will try to set up office hours with you to help. The food on campus is very good and we have a lot of variety. We have two cafes and we have a food court. There is also food such as Chick fil A and Moe’s. We have discounts on certain days for Starbucks as well. Many students can meet up in the library to complete their work. The facility has many locations to have study groups or to hang out. Sam Houston also has a peaceful atmosphere. If you are walking late at night, you can call campus police and they will walk with you to your next location. The police are also very active on campus and they are on campus a lot throughout the school day. Many students are involved with Greek life on campus. Student activities has many opportunities they plan on campus. For example, we may watch movies in the LSC and they have breakfast for all the staff and students throughout the semester. Our campus also involves with holidays such as Earth day or Valentine’s Day. For example, for Earth day students gave away free flowers. After Valentine’s Day, groups gave away candy and inspirational cards to students. I have grown to enjoy this campus and the things that they have to offer. Sam Houston has a small town sense but there are many ways to get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I very much enjoy myself here at Sam Houston State. With this being my first long-short term experience away from home, I can say that I am glad I picked this campus. I feel safe when I walk to where I need to be and I know that the people her aren't too threatening. The classes here are a generally nice size. I haven't encountered a class too big; However, some professors are a bit much and unnecessary.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam's a GREAT college! Everything is built and tailored around the campus because it's basically a college town. The student life is very active and you'll find a variety of people, clubs, and programs to be apart of and get adjusted with. There's not much to do on the weekends unless you actually plan something.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is an overall great school to go to. It has great teachers who are willing to answer any and all questions during class or during their office hours. Sam Houston’s campus is not as big as the other major Universities and everything is easy to get making it great for a student to get used to walking around on campus. Overall Sam Houston is a fantastic school and I would recommend anyone who is looking for a great education and campus life to Sam Houston.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Sam Houston State University is an amazing campus, but I also feel like it has much needed growth. While staff members and professors are always willing to help, there is a lack of communication. In terms of sexual education, I feel as if this should be a required class for all incoming freshmen. SHSU has a very nasty statistic growing and it involves the various of sexual encounters that students have. It is almost heartbreaking being a student and hearing this first hand. I enjoy going to school here and have made many long lasting friendships, but too often do I see good people ruined by drugs and alcohol. I have a good understanding that the school is not completely responsible for the actions of students, but it is the fact that there are strangers, that do not even go to school here, that are the ones offering for students to participate. It almost seems like some creepy system of strangers coming onto campus and scooping out students. It's manipulative, disgusting, and wrong.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. The classes and instructors are interesting, and since it's a state school, the tuition is very reasonable. The campus is gorgeous, and although it's not huge, there are plenty of student services, organization, and other activities to get involved in. The university sits in the middle of Huntsville, a small town less than two hours from Houston. Huntsville is truly a college town, and the community is very open and welcoming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a recent transfer student, I'm adjusting to the setting quite fine. I came from Texas Woman's University and the school was predominantly female with a strong focus on the success of women empowerment in every aspect, which I enjoyed but I wanted to study Psychology at Sam because of their program . When I first walked through the quad on the first day, I saw so much diversity and Greek life, which I really liked because there wasn't a lot of showcases on Texas Woman's Campus, so I was very fortunate that I got to witness that. Transferring to Sam Houston was a great move for me and I'm doing amazing in my program.
