Name: D.S.
Message: I loved SHSU while I was there. I never truly once had a “bad” professor. All of them were caring and helpful towards me and wanted to see students succeed. Great faculty. The students who do talk bad about the professors are typically the ones that don’t want to work and be there in the first place… There are ample amounts of free resources that the school has to offer students, but unfortunately many students don’t utilize them or are unaware of the resources they have access to as a student.. I couldn’t have chosen a better university. It really helped me develop character as a young adult. It has a huge programs in Criminal Justice, Education, Business, etc, with diverse classes, many professors, plus clubs and organizations to build your resume. My recommendation? Attend SHSU! You won’t be disappointed. Also, do an internship to get hands on experience in the field you want to do. It often leads to a job offer upon graduation. Eat ‘em up kats!

Message: I graduated from this school in 2006 from a Criminal Justice Degree. I have the opportunity to meet good people that help me thru my degree. The downside of this school is that I never have a job that pays me more than 40, 000 per year with a worth less Criminal Justice Degree. I still waiting for someone to help with that! I have applied for the Federal Government jobs and if you are not a military person they would not hire you. Many of my friends that completed a Criminal Justice Degree have encounter the same issue, to the point that they have to earned a teacher certification to have a decent pay. I will not recommend the school because of that issue. Also, I suffer discrimination here from a professor who gave me a D on a class and as he stated " I hate Latinos". Racist and Prejudice! It is a shame! On the positive side. The campus is gorgeous and some staff members are great too.

Message: I love SHSU. The university is amazing, I remember when I first got here in Fall of 2000, I've loved it ever since. I make it a point to stop by anytime I'm in Houston. It's a traditional to stop and take a picture with Sam and walk the campus. My daughter loves the campus and her first college football game was an SHSU one.
Name: T.K.
Message: Sam's got beautifully designed structures..

Message: Beautiful campus, nice atmosphere for students, and strong police presence. I stopped here just to visit campus because it's one of my favorite universities. SHSU was having campus tours that day and we checked out the library, which is huge.
