Overall Experience: Job fairs are a big deal on campus and they usually have ones that cater to your degree plan as well, such as criminal justice, business, or education. Our career services are also really helpful in building resumes and even do mock interviews.

Health & Safety: The school offers an escort service that you can call at any hour to walk with you on campus. I do wish there more lights on campus at night.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is always super involved on and off campus. While some Greeks do uphold to the stereotype of partying, most do a lot of community work. Some sororities/fraternities are cliquey but not every single one, you just have to explore your options if you are considering joining a group.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Athletic events are always highly promoted and fun to go to. They even have scholarship opportunities and giveaways to encourage students to attend.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the sense of community at my school. I come from a small town so it was a great transition for me. The campus is beautiful, and most of my professors have showed that they genuinely care about your success as a student. Some lecture classes are large, about 200 students, but I have also been in a classes of about 25 students.

Athletics: Being that I'm enrolled full-time and work full-time, I don't have time to attend any of the sports events.

Health & Safety: Sam Houston takes safety and security very strongly. If walking alone across campus and you feel even the slightest bit uncomfortable, there is a number to call and a police officer will come escort you to wherever you are going so you wont be alone

Overall Experience: Sam Houston State University is an overall amazing school. The professors are very dedicated to motivating their students into making something out of their lives. It is a very unique experience to be taught in one of the best Criminal Justice colleges in the country and if i could do it all over again, the only thing I would change is choosing Sam Houston a lot faster. I am very excited for my future and i cant wait to see what i make of it.

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.
