What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
It is great because it is a very small school and it is nice and quiet around town. Everybody is very friendly and easy to get along with. The largest class I ever had was about 50 students, and my professor still knew my name.
Ryan from El Paso, TX
Sul Ross is a great University where I feel very comfortable. The professors are very helpful and there is no other university I would transfer to at this time. Sul Ross State offers me the classes I want and I have made the Deans list and I intend to keep making my peers proud.

Kenya from Tomball, TX
I Love Sul Ross because while being here i have met some incredible people that have made an impact in my life. I like it because with it being small i can get my work done and be with friends. One of the best things here would probably have to be the small classes and you dont have to walk far to go from class to class.
