5 College Freshman

Diversity: We have students from all over the world. If you want to learn about a culture, there are tons of people on campus willing to give all the information you desire. There are some Greek life strictly for certain ethnicities, but they are all open to conversation.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I believe that it is all up to the student themselves. If they decide to go through with drugs, that is on them. THey will get it mostly off campus though.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have the ability to call campus police as needed, and there are emergency stations set up all over campus. We all have to take a campus safety online course before classes start, and I believe that helps us all feel safer.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As an Ag Science major, we are sent out tons of intern opportunities throughout the year. The university even has its own job posting website for students known as Jobs4Kats.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Granted, I have had one professor that didn't really speak English very clearly, but that is understandable in today' s society. Overall, I have had very understanding professors. I had an "accident" this summer and lost a lot of memory, but my professors were really good about working with me on it. I absolutely loved being able to bond with my professors.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't personally live in a dorm, but I have seen tons of friends dorm rooms. A majority of our dorms have their very own "room". People applying do have the ability to select a roommate much like them, and I believe that is what keeps a majority of our dorm life running smoothly.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: All of our Greek Life get along. Yes, our Greek life throw a lot of parties, but they very very rarely get close to out of hand.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I know several of our athletes on a personal level. None of our athletes hold themselves above everyone else.

Campus Housing: It could be worse. I also lived in the most expensive dorm so I can't speak for the cheaper dorms. The laundry amenities were terrible.

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.
