I'm a biology student here at Sul Ross, and though it does have good advantages such as small classes, sometimes or most of the time you pass not by what you know but by how much the teacher likes you. You can be the brightest one there, and have good grades, but if the teacher is on to you he will do whatever it takes to do to fail you. Also, DO NOT LIVE ON CAMPUS. They spray insecticides here at least 3 times per semester. It's a small town here so I'm thinking most of these people don't think about regulations and student health. Pesticides are chemicals, and can cause serious illnesses. They don't seem to care about your well being, and I'm guessing most parents don't know their kids are being exposed to insecticides at least 3 times per semester, so they continue to do it. They care more about their facility than the students' health.

The school looks nice as far as the building itself is concerned. Tuition is fairly cheap. Some of the faculty is helpful and knowledgable. That sums up the pros. Now for the cons. Much of the faculty is extremely hard to get a hold of...won't mention names. One teacher teaches out of a book edition not even carried by the school anymore. You might spend an hour trying to get a hold of someone on the phone because noone seems to be able to pick one up when you call. If you do reach someone, they transfer you to a voicemail because the person you are really trying to reach is never at their desk (even during office hours). My advise is as follows: If you are not limited to this school as I am, find another school to attend. Yes the tuition is fairly cheap but that just reflects the type of service you get from the school. The instructors tend to forget that you pay their salaries. It's ultimately your choice to apply but you have been warned if you decide to attend this school.

Sul Ross has a few programs for which it is highly suited. I'm a geology major and I can say that the program is excellent, and the Trans-Pecos region is a wonderful "classroom" for geosciences. If you want a business or law degree, search elsewhere. The math department is above average, while the computer science department is absolute crap. Education majors will contend with many poor teachers, while science majors will find the faculty and staff more than adequate.
