3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There's nothing extremely special. The professors are alright, the campus is clean and well-kept enough - my only complaints are the high price for a parking permit, the lack of parking, and the hilly landscape that the campus was built on, which makes it a pain to walk around campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There was a major screw up with my financial aid and now I run the risk of not being able to attend college at all. It's rather frustrating.

Overall Experience: Sam Houston State University is a wonderful school. I find the size of the school to be perfect because large schools are too hard to navigate and don't have the friendly and comfortable atmosphere that Sam does. The vast array of different cultures and backgrounds that are represented at the school make the experience of learning there much more enjoyable.

Overall Experience: Full of reputable professors and a diverse group of people whom are all friendly. Surrounded by Lake Conroe and Lake Livingston and close proximity to Huntsville State Park, recreational activities are endless.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I pretty much love everything about Sam. I've met amazing people who I want to continue to see. The only problem I had was one teacher in Spanish class due to him making false assumptions.

Overall Experience: I love my school and the experiences that I have had thus far. The professors are always willing to help you if you do not understand something and I do not feel like a number. I feel like I matter to them and they want me to succeed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experience would have to be how friendly everyone is on campus. No matter your major, everyone is accepting.

My school is unique because we are very involved and we love to involve those who are not. Everyone is into something, and we all help one another find a place where we fit.

I would choose Sam Houston State again because everyday on campus feels comfortable and just where i belong.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Very nice people, there seems to be a lot of things to get involved in for single people, I am a parent and married, so I am not interested nor have the time for things like that. If I were younger and not a parent, I would probably get involved with different groups, etc.

Overall Experience: Sam Houston is not a huge campus, and the one specific professor did everything they could to make everything right for me. I am a Music Education major, and the music program here is amazing! I am a part of the flute studio, marching band, and symphonic band. It is everything I could have asked for in a college.

Overall Experience: College is an awesome experience to find out your niche in both career settings as well as social settings. Much needed step in a young persons life to find yourself and get a grasp on where and how you want to see your life take you.

Overall Experience: Sam Houston is a school meant for you to do well academically if you do your work. I have met life long friends in just a year and also he time of my life. I can't wait to go back in the Fall and just know that it doesn't matter where you are but rather how your time is spent.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the environment, very clean and well kept campus. The services provided are amazing especially when you are new to Huntsville and can't get around as you would like. The education is quality here and if you need help in your courses, there are tutors available at convenient times during the day who can assist. The staff for the most part are pleasant and easy to ask a question. I would recommend SHSU to anyone.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My first semester of college was a great experience so far. It was completely different from high school. I wasn't looked down upon. I was an equal. The professors were amazing and I can say that I actually learned important things in my classes because of how they taught. Now that is a major step.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the school, atmosphere, and people.

Overall Experience: The school is not too large, but it isn't tiny either. There are tons of apartments within walking distance for students to live in, and finding jobs in Huntsville is easy. Sam Houston State owns a lot of the businesses in Huntsville, and student life is awesome.

Overall Experience: I love my school because it feels like home. Being a small town you feel a sense of recognition. Professors are awesome and I have joined an organization called Pay It Forward and plan to rush in the Fall of 2015!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I had the choice to pick another school to go too then I would pick the same school I am attending now. It does have the most spirit and the football team is fairly decent, but what I love the most is the people. They tend to mind their own business and stay to what they know which is perfectly acceptable for me. The less conflict the happier the university.

One of my favorite memories is when I played in intramural volleyball. It was towards the end of the game and I was serving last. Just before I served I took a depth breath, and it went over scoring an ace for the win. My favorite part wasn't winning the game, was the fact that when almost complete strangers are put together to play something they love, they won't stop until we win. So I can say positive that this overall experience so far has been great.

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.
