Sam Houston State University, also known as SHSU and Sam, for short, was founded in 1879. Its first name was the Sam Houston Normal Institute. Its original mission was to train teachers for the public schools of Texas. In 1919 it was awarded its first bachelorís degree. In 1923 it became Sam Houston State Teachers College. Later in 1965 the name was changed to Sam Houston State College in recognition of its expanded academic program. Four years later it was elevated to university standing.

The university includes colleges of arts and sciences, criminal justice, business administration, and applied and education science. In addition to undergraduate studies, the university offers a range of masterís degree programs and doctoral programs in criminal justice, education, and forensic clinical psychology.

I'm generally satisfied with my experience here at Sam, particularly because of the friendly people, the attractive campus, and the genuine care that the professors demonstrate. I think this university is starting to improve as a whole, and I think that it will be a good place and time to look back upon.

I'm a bit concerned at the lack of academic rigor here. Although the professors are good, and care a great deal about their students, I feel they are selling the department (the History department) short by grading very easy. Some of the work turned in, even by the graduate students, is exceptionally below par and probably would not pass at all at another one of the state's more reputable universities such as Texas or A&M. That being said, it is possible to get a good education here, particularly if you do what you need to do, but be warned that there will be many people that graduate along with you with only a slightly worse GPA, even though they did a hell of a lot work. I probably would not recommend the graduate program, though, as the students are surprisingly ill-prepared Ė I'll have to go somewhere else for graduate training to be taken seriously.

Other than that, I wish people would stay around a bit on weekends and support the football team. I people really got behind it, maybe D1A would come into the picture, which would really help the university stand out.

Again, don't get me wrong. I gave the university a "positive" review because as a whole, this place will really be a great experience and I'll get a lot out of it. Although there are problems, I think the university is slowly addressing these and will come out in very good shape in the end.

Sam Houston isn't the most academically challenging school, but it does provide a good solid education, and it has a good reputation. Most of the professors in the graduate program actually continue to work outside of the school in their field, so this gives them credibility, and they tend to make the assignments more relevant.
