Guys & Girls: SHSU is very diverse. There are a few girls that dress up everyday to go to class, but majority of the girls dress comfortably. Running shorts and running shoes is what most of the girls wear to class. The guys at SHSU are very laid-back as well. They mostly wear basketball shirt and a t-shirt. It is clear that SHSU keeps it simple when it comes to dress attire. It seems to be that there are lots of people in relationships. You will see couples holding hands or kiss every once in a while, but they don't show too much PDA. For the most part couples are considerate of the people around them.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The other students on campus are generally really nice. Many of them are really smart and hardworking. Very rarely do I find a fellow student who is a slacker. Everyone is very diverse in almost everything they do. Some are into video games while others are really into sports. Most people always dress in very casual clothes. The ones in suits are dresses are dressed as such because they are in a class like law.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The average student at Sam Houston State is very easygoing and laid-back, which may be attributed to the slow-moving, not-in-a-hurry, small-town feel here. Students are usually dressed casually, even when going out or at other seemingly dressy occasions. This seems to make it easier to talk to members of the opposite sex because everyone looks approachable and personable.

Although there is so much diversity on campus, students are able to come together and relate to one another because they are all members of the Sam Houston community. The girl-to-guy ratio is pretty even, with ladies outnumbering guys three to two. This doesn’t affect the dating scene, as many students, both guys and girls, casually date on campus. The types of relationships on campus range from casual dating to serious relationships, but either way, guys and girls at SHSU like to have fun. While some students are more reserved, most tend to date and hook up often at SHSU. There are plenty of places both on and off campus for guys and girls to mingle and socialize.
