My overall opinion of Stephen F. Austin is that it is a very historical college. The campus is very beautiful and the town is kind of small which means everything is pretty close by. As far as professors go its about half and half. Half easy and half hard that is. There is a website that you can go to that tells you the ratings of different professors at the school so you can decide if you want to take them or not.

It is a beautiful campus. It's large bit is easily navigated. The new nursing facilities are cutting edge of technology. Campus life seems to be energetic and safe. There are security officers riding around on bikes and in cars. I felt very safe exploring the campus.
