    Sam Houston has a beautiful campus. It's also very hilly and makes a great place for students who want to go out for a run or walk. The administrators and professors are really friendly and take the time to take care of the students' needs, which is something that doesn't happen all the time at larger universities.

    There is a reason Sam is booked. Overall, I can't see myself anywhere else. I feel it's a place for all cities to come together and attend school- Houston, Dallas, even Austin. The campus is uber friendly and there are many things to do. Manage your Bearkat Bucks(food) because they will run out within the first month, stay on your studies, and go to campus events.

    Sam Houston is a school meant for you to do well academically if you do your work. I have met life long friends in just a year and also had the time of my life and I can't wait to go back in the Fall. Just know that it doesn't matter where you are but rather how your time is spent.

    The campus is absolutely Beautiful. I toured with my AVID class researching colleges. The people are nice and since the town is small everything is close by. The only weird part is the church pastor next to the campus is absolutely crazy, especially about lgbt. The schools main focus is criminal justice and have had a few major trials RIGHT ON CAMPUS! You actually get to study in the court room where they are held. They have a massive gym with rock walls and 2 storys of equiptment. I recommend taking a look.

    Hi, my name is Ashlee, and I've been accepted to Sam Houston for the Fall 2015 semester. I like to be very active in school and I have a wide variety of things I enjoy doing, and was planning on taking a tour of the school some time during January or February. Does anyone have any advice for me about the tour, regarding what kinds of questions to ask, what to request seeing and what I should pay close attention to, or just any other advice?
