What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think its a great place to grow your education. The staff and other students are friendly and welcoming. Its like a home away from home and you may not want to leave. There are plenty of fun events to attend and the clubs fit any interest you may have. Also, the party and drinking scene isn't really heard of unless you look for it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SHSU is an overall great university. I'm not super involved in the extra-curricular side of things, but I've seen groups around campus having all kinds of fun! The dorm I live in is one of the original dorms from the very beginning so it is a little rough around the edges, but the newer dorms are really nice. Professors so far have been VERY helpful. Always available and really want you to succeed. Check ratemyprofessor before signing up for classes though!

I love Sam Houston! It is an amazing school for Criminal Justice. There are so many resources provided for me, including several help centers and representatives from surrounding police departments. The professors are well-educated and very nice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very great school. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. There are lots of places to go sit outdoors or indoors to sit and study. There are also places where they make it easier to focus. Many of the places are full of students who I'm sure can help each other work through their classwork together.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall experience at Sam Houston State University over the course of the semester has been overall great. The campus is absolutely stunning and the professors are exceptionally well at teaching and making sure the students understand the lectures. If anyone comes to visit the campus, like I did, with an open mind, the campus itself would speak and one will feel like home. I am glad I chose Sam Houston State University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a wonderful school and I highly recommend this college especially for criminal justice students. Many were worried about diversity but after my visit I was no longer concerned. The dorms on the other hand can use some work, but then again there’s no place like home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a current student at Sam Houston State University, I have enjoyed the time I have spent here very much, even if it has not been a lot. Even with the longer nights during the winter, I feel extremely safe to walk outside my dorm to get a hot chocolate, a snack, or if I need to print something last minute for an assignment. There are emergency posts if you do feel unsafe however, and a special program to be escorted at night if you ever feel unsafe or unsure about walking alone at night. It is also a lot of fun on campus with regular events on campus and outside of campus, usually in downtown Huntsville which is extremely close to the campus. It was such a convenience to be able to walk to go vote in the recent election. But, the campus tends to have a lot of uphill and downhill slopes that sometimes tend to be quite steep. This can be either a good thing or a bad thing, but it does give you killer legs as you’re walking to classes on the regular. This university also has one of the best criminal justice programs not just in Texas, but in the United States of America. However, the university does have other well-established programs for other majors, such as art majors. The university is also good about its tuition, being way less then more popular colleges and universities in the state of Texas, by a large amount. The campus has an average size, but walking to places like the gym, several food places, or classes, doesn’t feel like a huge ordeal.
