Sam Houston State University Reviews
I really love it at Sam! I feel like I am truly a Bearkat, and I have many so many friends, thanks to all the fun events and activities held on campus. Professors are easy to interact with, and will take the time to teach, unlike teachers I have had in the past. The campus is not too big and students are always willing to help others around. They Pawprint is an awesome place to grab a bite to eat, and spend time with friends, and right outside the pawprint is the mall area. In the mall area, booths are usually set up from eleven in the morning to two in the afternoon, and some kind of music is always playing. My favorite time to be in the mall area is on Thursdays at twelve, when Chi Alpha meets for "Worship at the Square." Sam is a great school for great students and being a Bearkat is my proof!
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!
So far I love Sam Houston State university! It is my home away from home. The campus is beautiful and the students are kind. Coming from a small town I love how SHSU everyone has so much school pride! Eat em up Kats! Aside from the pride, professors are kind and all they want is to see you succeed. They are seriously there to help you.
