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.
