"I love the campus, and everyone is super friendly and helpful. The school's layout is super organized, and everything is pretty easy to find. I enjoyed talking with the representatives at the booths. The location of the restrooms need to be better designated. All in all it was a terrific day."

"I started the Communication Sciences and Disorders program at Stephen F. Austin State University in August 2013 and graduated with honors in December 2016. I highly recommend this program and I am very honor to have completed my undergraduate studies at this university. This program is very directed towards transitioning from undergraduate to graduate school. The program does not heavily address working as an assistant. However, the ultimate goal is to excel to become a fully licensed Speech-Language Pathologist. Unfortunately, I will be unable to complete my graduate studies within this program because you dedicate your full-time to this program and are unable to successfully maintain a job while attending. That was not applicable to me and my family. This program provides excellent hands-on experience working with the local Head Start facility and having their own speech and hearing clinic on campus within the building. As an undergraduate, you are required to watch therapy sessions provided by the graduate clinicians through a one-way mirror. You are to create an observation log and are able to apply those hours to the required observation hours needed to be able to receive your assistant license. During your last semester of the program, you are in the clinic room with the graduate assistant and provide therapy for half a semester. You learn hands-on experience on how to write treatment plans, create therapy materials, and how to effectively take data. Overall, attending this program has prepared me to become an effective clinician in the future. I cannot wait to apply my undergraduate knowledge with my real world experience to my graduate coursework in May. Stephen F. Austin State University is an excellent program and is located in the heart of Texas. Thank you and Axe em."

"I have enjoyed my time at SFA, it is a small school vibe but you have the opportunity to receive all the knowledge you would at a bigger university. I am so bless to be a party of a cohort program that allows me to attend school and work as well. the program is designed for those who want to receive a degree but don't live close to the main campus. The instructors appear to be genuine and helpful"

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2017
"I really enjoyed this school. The communications department is extremely small but that makes it better. You get to know your professors on a more personal level. The only bad thing about them is there are very limited opportunities for internships and work available at Stephen F. Austin in the communications department."

Degree: Spanish
Graduation Year: 2015
"Although it is a very beautiful campus, there aren't enough things to do around! (So keep that in mind) It's in a small town so everything comes as first come basis. Financial Aid is horrible, they don't have enough for everyone so like I said the first ones are the ones who will get the most opportunities. Overall most people are nice, although since it's a small town there is a little racism (even though they'll deny it). I had a good experience, but I just wished there were more financial help opportunities for students."

"SFASU is a great university with lots of pride and tradition. If you want to be apart of a university where you feel like you know a lot of people, this is the university for you. The professors are very helpful and are willing to help you with whatever you bring to them. Not many universities can say that."

"Stephen F. Austin was a great place to study. The campus is beautiful and not overwhelming in size. This creates opportunities for any student to actually get to know other students and have a personal connection with your professors to really excel in your specialized field."

Degree: Animal Science
Graduation Year: 2009
"I had a choice between 6 different Texas schools to get my Animal Science degree from. And I am not sure I made the right choice with SFA. I had a lot of fun, and there was a lot of goofing off, but I'm not sure how much I really learned. If I could go back I would probably choose a different school. Unless you are going for poultry science, in which case they have a great program."

"I can only speak highly of the business department. I found my degree plan to academically rigorous, but with instructors that were more than willing to be of any assistance. I enjoyed the classes I had to take for my degree, and I found the assignments and projects practical and interesting. The campus was always improving, and there is quite an active social calendar for the student body."
