4 College Freshman

Diversity: Caucasian and African Americans are the main racial groups of the campus. People are accepting and embrace diversity.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: People still drink and smoke,but rarely on-campus(seriously,those who do it on-campus will get caught). Town is lenient on underage drinking, since there're always parties every Friday and Saturday.Of course, you don't have to be under the influence to have fun, and people won't treat you different if you don't

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love all my classes. Professors are friendly and intelligent, low teacher-student ratio so it's easy to network with professors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have a job on campus.I applied to 6 jobs and only got one of them.It's difficult to get a job on-campus because tons of people want to work here so it's competitive.It's very easy to look for jobs and internship by using Job 4 Kats, career services is there to help you if you have any problems

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Nothing happens in SHSU.I walk from the REC center late at night all the time.Campus police patrol frequently, I feel very safe on campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Lone Star Hall.Found bedbugs in my second week of school.Contacted resident life and they brushed it aside,took 6 extermination to take care of it.Staff were rude,still very upset by the service I get paying for the overpriced dorm.Other than that,the location is convenient,I like the layout of the room,and the size of the bathroom.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are your stereotypical sorority girls and frat boys.They are friendly but like to talk about their Greeks.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I go to the Rec Center everyday,it's fairly small but has everything you need.It's crowded at night,go during the day to avoid the crowd.Football games are lively and students are involved and tailgates are great!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would go back for the experience. It was great. From making new friends, to interacting with your favorite teachers and making good grades, it was all worth it.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The career services always host a career fair during each fall and spring semester. These are very helpful and many students receive job offers and interviews form them. There is also a program called Jobs4Kats that helps students find jobs on and off campus. They are very helpful and give advice for finding employment. It also very easy to get started in the program. The career services also helps out a lot with jobs after graduation. We also receive emails about job opportunities and internships related to our major. They are very helpful all around.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life does a lot for the students and the university itself. They are always finding ways to raise money and host social events, for greeks and also for non-greeks. They are all very outgoing and friendly.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I have not attended many athletic events. The ones I have attended, the students act as a family to support our team. Football is the most popular sport. Going to a football game when I was in Middle School actually made me want to go to Sam Houston because of the atmosphere and hospitality.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Sam Houston is great because the classes aren't too big and you can really get a great learning experience. The students and professors are so welcoming and helpful. The small class sizes also give a more personal relationship with other students and the professor. You don't feel like "just a number" in the classes.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are a lot of safety precautions that the school takes to make sure the students feels safe. There are two way phones on campus that can used to call campus police in case of emergency.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Even though this school specializes in Criminal Justice, ther are a lot of other career options for people. It's important to work hard and stay ahead of the game to make sure you don't get overwhelmed.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It's alright. The cost is the best part of the whole experience but sometimes you may get stuck with a roommate you don't click with and have to deal with that for an entire year.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I honestly don't know much about the Athletica side of the school but I've seen good things and people seem to enjoy them.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school definitely lives up to the hype and cares about each students and doesn't want of us to fall behind. I changed my major as a junior and the process was easy and painless.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors and courses at Blinn are pretty average I would say. Obviously some of the professors are different or harder or easier form others but overall I think they are all there for the right reasons and have the right goals in teaching us what we need to know about their subject. The class sizes were average, it felt a lot like high school and it was a comforting feeling. I always felt like I could go talk to my professors whenever I needed to. They were also very understanding when I would communicate with them that I would be gone for softball. I know there are some professors who were against athletics but I was fortunate enough to not have them as professors but Blinn is a small enough school that the professors know that it revolves a lot around athletics and they all have some sort of athlete in their classes so they are used to it. But overall the classes and professors at Blinn are great and I can't complain!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since it is a junior college, the choices are limited, but of course they have a lot of undergraduate programs to choose form to get your associates being it is one of the best junior colleges in Texas. Though I didn't get my associates in criminal justice, I still had criminal justice courses to take to prepare me for my next college level. The advisors are great and very efficient and friendly.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our administration goes out of their means to have form meeting each month to ensure us that we are safe, feel safe, and to remind us about things and tips that we need to know to protect ourselves and who we can/need to go to if we have been harmed or feel we are going to be harmed in any such way. They also remind us that even if we don't feel these ways that we can still feel free to go talk to them any time we need or want.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing at Blinn wasn't the greatest but it was manageable for two years. Everything at Blinn is fairly old being that the school itself is old. There are one set of new dorms that were built but athletes are not allowed to live in them, only the non athlete students.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic involvement at Blinn is awesome, being that it is a junior college, mainly the only people who stay on campus are the sports teams. We all have a relatively tight bond with each other and support each other at all the functions we can. All of Blinn's athletic teams are usually nationally ranked while our cheer and dance teams are 3 year back to back national champions and the other sports almost always make it to regionals, if not all the way to nationals. Blinn holds their athletes to a very high standard and the coaches stick to that standard if not push you for more. I loved playing my two years at Blinn and because of the small size, I made a great number of really great friends that I am more than thankful for.

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.
