What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
If you are looking for quality education without skyrocket tuition and a caring environment this is the school for you.
Tracye from Dallas, TX
study, study, study and go to class. don't slack in the beginning it makes everything that much harder.
Felicia from Cedar Park, TX
Be sure you've got your studying habits in check because these classes aren't easy if you don't know how to focus in school. Be ready to see friendly people and haul yourself up and down a giant hill. There's plenty of organizations to choose from and expect to make a lot of long-lasting friendships.
Cathy from Richardson, TX
There's no worries about making friends because there are many friendly students on campus. The campus also has hundreds of student organizations to help you be more involved in campus life. There are stores and food places nearby campus close enough to be traveled on foot or bike, but a car is necessary to get to the larger department and grocery stores.
from Richmond, TX
Visit the campus. Come to a football game. Go visit a class. Visit the shops in Downtown Huntsville. Really engage yourself to the college atmosphere when you come so you can make a good decision if Sam is the right school for you.
Kathleen from Houston, TX
Tips I can give all of you new freshman or transfers is to get involved. There are so many different organizations to get involved in so to make friends, build resumes, help your community, and to just have fun. Also, if you wear orange on Fridays, you get free stuff. I also advise you to go to all school activities because Sam gives you so many opportunities to win free stuff.
Jessica from Spring, TX
-Apply early and apply for housing early, more likely to get your first choice especially if you want to live in Sam Houston Village.
- Always take the initiative to talk to your professors, take advantage of any and all help that is offered.
Amethyst from Dallas, TX
If it is your first year going to college, try getting a dorm. Many people think that dorms are very small and messy. While they are small, the dorms are relatively clean and are very close to everything on campus. If you do not have a car, getting a dorm is the best way to go.
amanda from conroe, TX
I would suggest going here because a lot of times it is a looked over school and it is great! We have over 19,000 enrolled this year and no matter what personality you are, you will love it! It is a smooth transition from High School to College and I didn't at once feel like the workload was too strong or that the curriculum was too hard. When I was looking for schools before this I wanted a relatively nice sized school but also not too many students on campus so I didn't feel like a number. Sam is great with getting students involved and it is so easy to make friends here, just go to class or next door in your hall and BAM friends.
Rachael from Highland Village, TX
Apply early, adn start the financial aid process EARLY.. That is the only downside... Once it get's busy, the financial aid office is almos impossible to work with
