This school is so far. You go out to the bar every night and party with friends and see what happens

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

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.
