What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
Make the schedule how you want it and if youre trying to save money make sure you give your self a lunch break during the dining hall hours. You dont want to set up class after class and not have a lunch break. Another thing is stay busy, make some friends or join a club it will help you when you miss home.
Javier from San Elizario, TX
Don't sit in room all day everyday. Get out and visit the town. Hike A mountain with friends when bored.
Casey from Alpine, TX
Apply early and make sure that you visit the campus when you have time because that will be the best way for you to see how it really is. Don't just take my word for it also make sure that you don't become hung up with the idea of taking afternoon classes instead of morning trust me morning classes are better because it will free up your afternoons and give you time to get a job if you want to.
Amisadai from El Paso, TX
Meet with your academic advisor or speak with him/her as soon as you can.
Talk to your financial aid advisor.
Expect a quiet campus life.
Dezmond from Destoto, TX
This school is perfect if you are persuing a degree in Horticulture, Agriculture, or anything to do with the ranch.
Melissa from Corpus Christi, TX
Average of 15 students per class or lower.
Jose from Presidio, TX
Do not underestimate the school. It gets a bad rap because it's small and in the middle of nowhere in west Texas, but that's part of its charm. It really is a beautiful area and its sad to see prospective students continually disappointed because there is nothing to do around town. There are no night-clubs but it is what you make of it. Marfa and Alpine always have festivals going on, and if you're really bored drive out to Marfa or Fort Davis and star gaze. I love the laid back nature of the school and I especially love the peace and quiet. There are a lot of organizations on campus that prospective students can get involved with and there is a great volunteer fire department for potential career firefighters. As an average person like myself it has been a great experience being able to get involved in many organizations that I probably wouldn't have been able to get involved with had I gone to a larger school.
Ryan from El Paso, TX
Affordable, and a very friendly atmosphere.
Kali from Alpine, TX
A tip I suggest to every prospective student regardless of coming to Sul Ross, get all applications for dorm and scholarships done on time or even before they are due for that academic year.
A tip for prospective Sul Ross students is to try their hand at every class there is to offer, especially if they are undecided. They may learn exactly what field they are most interested in by doing that and can get the full college life experience.
Liz from El Paso, TX
Making the right friends can take you a long way at Sul Ross. Being very activity around campus will keep you busy and involve in things.
