It is located in Huntsville, TX, a small city of 34,500 residents between Houston and Dallas. Because of its proximity to two major metropolitan areas,SHSU’s student body is rich in all aspects of diversity.
The SHSU Counseling Center is a rapidly growing department, with a commitment from the university for continued growth in the future. To that end, the student body recently voted to provide funds for a new Student Counseling & Health Center. This facility will break ground in the spring of ’13 and should take approximately one year to complete. Once opened, the Counseling Center will be able to expand the depth and breadth of its services in a variety of exciting ways.
Although it is only 70 miles from downtown Houston, Huntsville is surrounded by forests, lakes and ranch lands. Huntsville State Park and Sam Houston National Forest are both nearby. Each year, visitors from all over the state come to Huntsville, home and burial place of General Sam Houston, "Texas’ Greatest Hero," and the General Sam Houston Folk Festival. Huntsville’s "Fair on the Square" offers a day of fun, shopping, and food in its historic downtown area. Downtown is home to antique stores, galleries, shops and museums.
