"This school is so frustrating! It is so hard to get a response from staff in the offices. One person says one thing and another says something completely different. I have lost total trust in this school. It took 2 years to get my major declared and I submitted multiple forms to have it declared as well as my minor which took 1 year. When you call a certain department such as financial aid or student services, no one answers. I live about 45 minutes from the campus and sometimes I would have to drive all the way to campus just to get an answer. It's terrible!! When you confront them about the issues, they always say we're under staffed. They take no responsibility. I get it may be frustrating to be under staffed but if someone has been trying to get an answer for a week then it is just ridiculous at that point. The funny thing is when you are late paying the tuition, they call you IMMEDIATELY. It is such a shame the office is so terrible because the professors are great and very helpful. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this school and all the headaches it comes with."

"It was great! The grad classes at most had 15 students. A few classes only had me. Also they don't charge more for grad classes than for undergrad classes so it is much cheaper, yet my degree is still well respected and I have an amazing job thanks to this degree"

"The Spanish language is spread all over the world. While it is true that the English language predominates today, Spanish continues to gain ground. More and more Americans are attracted to the language of South America. As are also more and more people of different nationalities who want to learn the Spanish language. So why not study a profession with a great future? Being a Spanish teacher is a very good option."

"A significant pro to my graduate program is the fact that we have the Big Bend National/State park right in our back yard. My advisory provides us with permits to collect and conduct research in both parks and provides research projects if we want. As a 1st year graduate student I have had the opportunity to take part in the Salt Cedar Beetle project as well as work in the invertebrate collection. A con to my program is the lack of funding available for student grants, research and travel opportunities. We also have a lack of funding for technology and the department as a whole."

"The graduate program at Sul Ross State has allowed me an open environment to ask my professors questions, I have never felt intimidated when I needed help. I feel I have free range and am learning a great deal. However, the cost is very high, I would like to earn my degree without stressing about finances. There also seems to be somewhat of a lack of resources available to me."

"The pros of the graduate art program at Sul Ross State University are the student/teacher ratio, the affordability of supplies necessary to attend classes for the degree, and the willingness for faculty and staff to work with students to help with their academic success. The cons are the lack of scholarships for art majors, the cutting of funding for the program, and the fact that we've only one major professor left and may have to look for adjuncts to help with the course load."
