Scholarships: The financial aid process was pretty easy. I received the financial aid I needed. It was taken away once but this was only due to a processing glitch.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The campus is extremely beautiful. There is always a place to study, do work, or just hang out. The facilities are all modern and every classroom has a projector and whiteboard. There is always a computer lab open for students to use.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. My dorm is more like a small apartment and the people are all really nice. The residence halls are always holding activities for the students in the halls. My dorm is just across the street from campus making it extremely easy to get to class. The process of choosing housing is very simple. There is even an option to reserve the same room from the previous year.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The other students on campus are generally really nice. Many of them are really smart and hardworking. Very rarely do I find a fellow student who is a slacker. Everyone is very diverse in almost everything they do. Some are into video games while others are really into sports. Most people always dress in very casual clothes. The ones in suits are dresses are dressed as such because they are in a class like law.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There are a bunch of things to do at night. Many people go and study but others go to the Kat Klub in the student center where they can play games, watch TV, and just hang out. The school also does many night activities like Casino Night, Dinner and a Movie. All these activities help to bring the student body closer together.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I haven't heard of anyone being discriminated against.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The facilities aren't great, but they're alright. The school is currently building new facilities. I have great expectations for these new buildings. The school's food is better than I expected. Good quality for Cafeteria food. The faculty are very helpful and kind.

Sam Houston State does a great job of helping students find their calling and pursue their dreams with confidence. For any student looking for a school that offers a great overall experience, SHSU not only lives up to this, but also exceeds it. Sam Houston is a fun school where it is easy to make life-long friends, while receiving a quality education from instructors who care.

Freshmen come in with a lot of unanswered questions and always receive competent answers. The professors do a good job of teaching valuable life lessons along with sharing their experiences in their field. The faculty at SHSU cares about students and keeps their best interests in mind by offering guidance and knowledge to all those who seek it. This is made possible because of the great faculty-student interaction, which is pretty unique for such a big university. SHSU has a small-town feel and is full of school spirit, and while there may not be as many things to do here as in bigger cities and schools, SHSU’s campus is close to the town, making it is easy to travel and explore all that Huntsville has to offer. Many SHSU students say that if they were given the chance to do it all over again, they most certainly would.
