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.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are bad dorms but they just built a lot of new dorms that are great! I lived in Raven and had my own room only down side is laundry but that is anywhere

Local Atmosphere: It has a beautiful public park that is well taken care of all the time. There is not much to do, but is safe to walk around, even after dark.

Off-Campus Dining: It is just what this small town has open at the time. Nothing special.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I guessed at some of the answers, because I'm not involved with Greek life. To busy studying.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: I live off campus, walk to school and do not drink.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: Seldom, if ever eat on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I have great Computer science professors, it's ABET accredited and they really teach. They're not sloppy about the topic.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Turns out this university does not have a big Computer Science department, but the professors it has, they really teach. They give us projects, time frames to complete the work, working in groups, actual tests where the answers are hand written, not just "fill in a bubble." I've learned a lot and I think it has prepared me for more advanced work.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: I'm busy studying and do not have much time for campus activities. They do have an organization for Computer Science majors, SHACKS that I am involved with regularly.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I've got excellent Computer Science professors. I enjoy my major, but it is a lot of work compared to other degrees. The only students that understand the study involved and the work/project load and the difficulty are those majoring in another science or math. A lot of students majoring in other things have a lot of free time, down time or complain about how "hard" their simple basic classes are for them. But I would never change my major, or give up what I'm trying to achieve.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: My first non-paid internship was the summer between 11 and 12 grade. After completing the internship we were offered part-time, minimum wage jobs for our senior year, I accepted one with United Space Alliance. I learnt more about computers, ethics and work etiquette that I use to this day. After I graduated high school, I was offered a summer job at $15.00 an hour. I loved my job and could not wait to go to work. The professionals that worked for this company actually helped us with everything, when we needed guidance or information. I also worked at the university as a computer tech for about two years and a summer job with St. Luke's Medical Center for one summer. All these positions were computer related.

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.
