4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not very big on campus because gdi's see us as only party throwers and drop-outs when in reality we have donated thousands of dollars, logged over 100,000 hours of community service and have grades above 85% of the school average. Phi Gamma Delta was recognized this past fall by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce for their volunteer work in the community's Halloween hay-ride

Off-Campus Housing: It can be a little pricey, but every apartment has a shuttle to class which is very helpful

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options for every taste

3 College Freshman

Administration: They can be uptight about parking but very lenient on a lot of other things. I have personally never been told off about dipping tobacco and I do it every day.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't get any because I didn't do much in high school, but for those who did, the scholarships were plentiful

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Every Thursday, every Fraternity has a pregame at their house, members, potential members and girls are the only ones allowed in, and once we've had our fill of alcohol we head out to the bar to go dancing and trying to get laid. It's kind of like a game.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: For the meal plan, the actual meal plan tickets are very limited. They are only allowed at certain times and only a certain amount per day. I have a 15 meal a week plan but I couldn't go into the cafeteria twice during one meal period if I wanted to go back and hang out with some friends. Bearkat bucks are great because you can use them for anything from coffee to sushi to lunchables.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live on one of the cheapest dorms possible. It's cozy, has laundry, everything you need. It is pretty ugly and dirty and smelly, but it gets the job done for the price I (my parents) pay.

3 College Freshman

Administration: GOT PULLED OVER ONCE GOOD EXPERIENCE

College Freshman

Party Scene: I DONT DO CAMPUS PARTIES. I DO PARTIES OFF CAMPUS AT FRIENDS HOUSES

Party Scene: I don't know enough to comment.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Small like many college dorms, but it also depends on the dorm you are in. SHV is quite good but many other dorms don't have a great reputation.

College Senior

Greek Life: I don't really know much about Greek Life

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Our school has spectacular campus security!

Off-Campus Dining: We are a small town so there are many chain restaurants we would like but don't have, but there is enough places to go into when you get hungry.

5 College Senior

Athletics: The school gym has many options for students, such as the rock wall, weight room, sports courts, etc.

Administration: Because of Huntsville being "prison city", campus police and security are very good and keeping students safe.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Most everyone is pretty friendly and people in your major tend to hang out together and socialize.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The older dorms could use some touching up.

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.
