I love the academic opportunities that my university offers! Since we are a small campus, the classrooms are more intimate than other state universities in Texas. However, everyone has the opportunity to develop a genuine relationship with their professors. When a student stops by their office, the professors know their name! It is beneficial when preparing for exams and presentations because it feels more comfortable to ask for help in case of any questions or concerns students may have. This aspect alone has greatly impacted my academic success. One of the many reasons why I love my school, Stephen F. Austin State University!

SFA is a great 4-year education! I am personally attending in an online program through SFA to earn my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (4th-8th grades) with a specialty in Social Studies. We attend campus one time a semester for 2 days of meetings. Every time I attend the college, the professors, advisers, students, and staff are some of the best people I have ever met. The college is grade A in hospitality. The professors we met with genuinely want each and every student to succeed. They are very quick to help in any way to reach you goals of achieving your degree.
There are many things I love about my school. I love the friendly students, the beauty of all of the trees on campus, and how it is the perfect size college. The AARC tutoring center is incredible and helped me a lot this passed fall semester. The involvement center is also very friendly and offers so many clubs and organizations that reach out to students. The recreational center is awesome and I took a rock climbing class that was so much fun! My one complaint is that the recycling on campus is not good. There are very few recycling bins on campus and the only ones that are there are for plastic bottles. No aluminum or paper? I think that something should be done about this.
