Overall Experience: Professors at Sam Houston are overly friendly and very helpful. The professors at Sam go out of their way to make their classes interesting for students. Courses are interesting yet also challenging. The level of difficulty is just enough to test students while giving them a sense of accomplishment when they earn good grades. Sam Houston is the perfect learning environment for Sam Houston Bearkats.

No matter what college a student attends, an always in demand, well paying, dependable career field is always important to have in mind.

Health & Safety: Sam Houston is definitely a safe environment. There is rarely any worries of personal safety, crime, or need for security measures to be taken. Sam is a very friendly and positive place, it feels very safe and secure. There are always police officers nearby on patrol at all times. There is also safety services like Kat Safe that warns students via text message about things like unsafe or extreme weather conditions and possible dangers. I feel Sam Houston is a very safe campus and makes students feel safe at all times.

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Sam Houston has several perks. First of all, living on campus allows students a convenient, quick route to walk to classes. Walking is nice because it rules out traffic and all the other hassles of trying to get to class on time. Living in a dorm also allows first time students to make friends at Sam Houston they might not meet other wise. Living with a roommate and suite mates allows students to become more social. Living on campus means you also have access to amenities already provided for instance, the dining hall for a cooked meal, the library, the laundry service, and much more. Housing at Sam Houston is of good quality and is a great experience.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is very active on campus, Sam Houston has multiple sororities and fraternities on campus. Both of these greek organizations are actively involved in philanthropic activities and bettering Sam Houston's campus. Each sorority or fraternity has their on philanthropy which they raise money for, they improve the lives of the less fortunate and also give back to the community. All greeks are involved on campus but not all are housed on campus, there are four sororities currently with houses on campus. Although not all of them are housed on campus I think they definately are beneficial to Sam Houston.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at SHSU are great, students seem to really be involved in supporting the Bearkats. At athletic events it is easy to see this because almost everyone is decked out in orange and blue and chanting with the team. It really gets everyone hyped about the game and excites the players. Sam Houston's baseball team actually won first in their conference in 2016. Sports are great at Sam but that is not all the Sam is about. Sam Houston truly cares about their students and players.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Sam Houston State University is a great learning atmosphere for students. It is located in Huntsville,Texas, which is a very relaxed city, and it really makes everyone feel right at home. Since Huntsville is such a small town it allows students to make a close group of friends easily. Sam Houston has a beautiful campus surrounded by tall fresh smelling pine trees, it is so relaxing to walk to class or have a study break on campus. Sam Houston also is unique because it has historic aspects that no other school has, for instance you can actually take a tour of Sam Houston's memorial museum. Sam Houston is a great all around college with a great sense of school pride.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
