27 Questions Students Have For Sam Houston State In Fall 2017

We love you, but... why?

Sam Houston State University

Let me start off with a disclaimer: I love my campus.

Sam Houston State University is a wonderful school that's provided me with an amazing degree plan to prepare myself for the future. I even moved across the country to be here.

It's a breathtakingly beautiful campus that has a ton of opportunities to have fun and build a resume. It also has some pretty peaceful study spots to for students to kickback and clear their minds. It's the best of both worlds.

However, there are some curiosities about SHSU that puzzle me, as well as other students. So, I asked around and compiled a list of questions that have crossed our minds so far this past semester.

Here's what's been racking all our brains for the last couple months:

1. When will the construction near the rec center be finished?

2. How do I exit the library parking lot without scraping the underside of my car?

3. Speaking of parking, can we clarify when it's free?

4. Why do departments say it's free after 5PM, but we're still receiving tickets?

5. Who are those spaces reserved for after 5PM?

6. Why is financial aid always experiencing a "high volume of calls?"

7. Could the services in the Estill building be open past 5PM?

8. Why is 5PM the deadline for so many things?

9. Why was the fountain green earlier this semester?

10. Why does the Paw Print Cafe close between lunch and dinner?

11. Why are the keyboards in the CHSS computer lab always so sticky?

12. Where is the off-campus body farm?

13. Will the ice cream vending machines ever be in service?

14. Is there a way to limit the religious extremists from harassing us between classes?

15. Why do people not understand that you go up and down the stairs on the right?

16. Why do so many people walk around on FaceTime?

17. How does our football team manage to win nearly every game?

18. Could campus be any more photogenic?

19. Is the whole 'walking under the clock-tower' curse true?

20. Why don't we advertise our Fine Arts events as much as other events on campus?

21. Can we get extra credit for staying in the library until close every night?

22. Could we get free access to another computer lab? It's like a frenzy during lunch hours.

23. Where's the best place to take senior photos on campus?

24. Do the fast food services on campus take gift cards?

25. Could we get some upperclassmen on-campus housing?

26. Are there any haunted houses or hayrides around here?

27. Why did it take so long for Huntsville to get Uber?

What questions do you have for SHSU that didn't make the list?

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.

7 Ways You Can Safely Attend A Protest In The Middle Of A Pandemic

Wear a mask, but speak up.

It seems like coronavirus (COVID-19) has been around forever now. Life before masks and with public sporting events is a distant memory, hoping to make a comeback sometime this year. We've all had to make some sort of life changes to abide by this pandemic's rules. But that doesn't mean everything has stopped. On May 25, George Floyd died at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, sparking a cry for justice and racial equality across the nation.

For the last week, protests have taken place in major cities like New York City, LA, DC, Chicago, Phoenix, Portland, Dallas, and Floyd's hometown of Minneapolis. Many of the cities experiencing protests have begun phased reopening, while others (specifically New York City and LA) have yet to begin phase one of post-coronavirus reopening.
