3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I loved my dorm; especially because it was one of the biggest ones. All though I recently heard that prices will go up for next semester. This has made me upset because if anything, another year has been lost; should it not be cheaper?

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: SHSU is very diverse. There are a few girls that dress up everyday to go to class, but majority of the girls dress comfortably. Running shorts and running shoes is what most of the girls wear to class. The guys at SHSU are very laid-back as well. They mostly wear basketball shirt and a t-shirt. It is clear that SHSU keeps it simple when it comes to dress attire. It seems to be that there are lots of people in relationships. You will see couples holding hands or kiss every once in a while, but they don't show too much PDA. For the most part couples are considerate of the people around them.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As mentioned before, SHSU is a very safe campus. The crime rate is low and there are always police men driving around to make sure that everything is safe.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is very popular at our school. During the day, many fraternities and sororities will be in the yard stepping. They bring school spirit and positive energy to SHSU. Greek students are viewed as energetic and vibrant; they are like the cool kids on campus. Each fraternity and sorority has their own house; only exclusive members can live there.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Since I've been at SHSU, I have been apart of two athletic organizations; track and basketball. When we had basketball games, many people would come out and support. We held many different game themes, such as the Pink game, athletes support athletes night, and kid's night. The game against SFA was the most memorable game because everyone showed their school spirit and support. The track team also has a huge support system from our peers. We were the indoor and outdoor champions in 2014 and much of our success that year was because of the fan support that we had.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I would not know because I live in a dorm, but I have many friends they live off campus and they love it.

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.
