Stephen F. Austin State University Reviews
I found this to be an excellent university, great campus, great teachers, and great fellow students. The cost for me was very low and I had help with financial aid. When I graduated I had maybe 12k in loans to pay back.
I was in a fraternity and lived off campus for 150$ per month. I wasn’t living large in college. Excuse I wanted to just compete school and move onto a career. I found many of my business students very smart and focused.
I would highly encourage anyone to go to this university. I have now worked for some of the most prominent financial firms in the world. Thanks SFASU!
