Located in Nacogdoches among the towering pines of Texas Forest Country, the 412-acre campus of Stephen F. Austin State University has long been recognized for its beauty and scenic surroundings. Since SFA first held classes in 1923, it has grown into a nationally respected university offering more than 80 undergraduate degrees and 120 areas of study. The education and nursing programs are particularly strong, with students in these programs consistently earning the highest marks on Texas professional examinations. Fifteen programs of study receive accreditation from specialized accrediting agencies, making SFA the clear choice for students seeking both quality and value. Nearly 13,000 SFA students enjoy the best of both worlds—the breadth of a state university education and the personal attention of a private college.
SFA offers all the academic opportunities and amenities of larger universities while preserving the feel of a tight-knit community. Programs like the Academic Advising Center, Academic Assistance and Resource Center and the Office of International Programs foster student success, and the School of Honors encourages students to work closely with professors and classmates to strengthen their intellectual and creative growth. Learning is extended beyond the classroom at facilities including the Science Research Center, the Columbia Regional Geospatial Service Center and an Early Childhood Research Center. More than 200 student organizations focus on academics, social activities and/or career goals. With 13 intercollegiate varsity sports and student activities from movies to intramurals, there is always something to do. A renovated student center opened in 2007 and includes a Barnes & Noble bookstore, food court and 383-seat movie theater. Our state-of-the-art recreation center features a climbing wall and lazy river. At SFA, the resources available to students are vast, and the possibilities are endless.
