What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are only three real things that generate revenue and bring people to Huntsville, Texas. The Sam Houston Museum, featuring more than any non-academic would ever care to know about the town’s hero. Texas State Penitentiary, called the “Walls Unit,” which draws in the families of the incarcerated and provides the city’s public schools with approximately 50% of their student population. And Sam Houston State University, an intellectual island fortress the townsfolk are apt to forget exists any weekend that there isn’t a football game. But the fortress only appears foreboding from the outside. Within is a burgeoning and forever bustling student population and professors who have elected to brave living in the surrounding city for the sake of working there. These professors are Huntsville’s unsung heroes, both dynamic and engaging, Sam’s students invest in their professors, who will stop in the halls or courtyards to talk or bring a regional dish to their class to heighten the experience. But if I had to pick a single local experience to encapsulate and expose the spirit of Sam Houston’s academic community, it is to be found in Texas Review Press, the university’s publishing house. In the spring semester of 2016, Dr. Paul Ruffin passed away, leaving only students and a single alum to run the Press. And yet run it does, competently, efficiently, and quietly. Sam Houston is a place of subtle efficiency, that enables and encourages its students to bring out the best in each other.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this campus. The people and the academics are great. It is also very beautiful. The only downside is that it is a little sketchy sometimes. The clubs that you can join are amazing. They are many opportunities to make life time friends at this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is a great school for people who like small schools. Our football team is undefeated and the games are fun. The library is amazing and is always packed during finals. The criminal justice center is really cool and had the best food on campus. I would definitely recommend Sam Houston State University to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall Sam Houston is a really good school. The classes and professors are great and I have learned a lot. If you need tutoring, it is always available. You meet plenty of people and build connections. Hard work is required but it is totally worth it in the end.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston was not my first choice school so naturally I don't think it is great it's pretty average. I got automatic acceptance to sam and to SFA but decided on sam only because it's closer to home. What makes me dislike the school the most is financial aid, its october and I'm still trying to get it sorted out. I am currently paying for school with a family loan and its frustrating that financial aid always comes up with an extra step before they can fix my problem.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Sam Houston State University is that it was absolutely perfect for me. I came from Small Town, USA and being able to adjust was a lot easier. The professors are super eager to help out in any way they can, as well as offer tutoring for those who need more help. There is an organization for everyone and no one is left out. If you enjoy smaller class sizes, friendly people, and an opportunity to grow into the person you want to be, Sam Houston is the place for you. Eat Em' Up Kats!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston State University is an exquisite school because our class sizes are decently small, the professors are engaged and want you to succeed, the students and faculty are so helpful and kind. The town of Huntsville is small and cozy but not suffocating and there is plenty to do if you can keep an open mind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sam Houston is an amazing school located in Huntsville, TX aka Huntsvegas. It's a college town with a home like feel. There so much to do, and everyone is so nice. The smaller classes allow for a better student teacher relationship. Overall it's a way better choice than SFA (; #Eat'EmUpKats
