Sam Houston State University Reviews
One of the first things students learn about Sam Houston State University is the motto: the measure of a life is its service. The whole university--professors, students, and faculty alike--live up to this motto. Combine the friendly people with the beautiful campus, and you have a great university! Not to mention a great education!
As a music education major, I am blessed to come here to Sam Houston State University. Everyone here is so sweet and caring. My professors are always there for me with convenient office hours and always encourage we come and get extra help if needed. The campus is also extremely beautiful!
I am a transfer student who lives about 40 minutes off campus. If you asked me last semester if I have even thought about going to Sam I would have given you the weirdest look, I have always known where I wanted to go to school where my father attended in St. Louis. To be honest I didn't even look at Sam Houston, I applied to Lindenwood and that was it, someone then informed me about the Psychology program at Sam and I felt silly not at lest looking at the school, I went and loved it. Even though I have my 40 minutes drive I really don't mind, I have only been there a semester so I haven't gotten to much there but the classes are great! And I'm so glad I stayed, everyone is awesome, the campus is so pretty and I love to sitting anywhere really. Again I'm glad I stayed and get to enjoy Sam Houston.
