Sul Ross State University Reviews

Sul Ross is great in the way of being a small enough college to get one-on-one interaction but also big enough that you still get the college feel! The community is great and always tries to make you feel welcomed and find different ways to be involved. The only down side is the lack of instructors and classes. The lack of instructors leads to fewer courses and somewhat bigger classes. Besides this small inconvenience, Sul Ross was a great small town college!

My online experience at Sul Ross State University was very good. The professors were ready to help whenever I needed it and the instructions were fairly clear. Online classes are overall hard to me because I am more of a hand on learner. This does not mean Sul Ross State University was not prepared. This means that did an excellent job!
Super good experience! Love this college and the amazing staff here. Really good personal connections can be made with students and staff. The community is really nice and the view here is amazing. The education I am receiving here is of very good quality and everyone is very attentive to your needs.
