College Is More Than A Degree Plan

Forty-five minutes from the nearest Wal-Mart, two hours and thirty minutes from the nearest mall, what draws students to Sul Ross State University? The answer is not in the university itself but in the staff, faculty and most importantly, in the student body.

What Is There to Do?

One of the concerns of many incoming students is Alpine's location in relation to anywhere else. The questions "What is there to do?" or "What is there to get involved in?" are common and understandable. The answers are simple, and with motivation of the individual easy to act on.

The answer for both questions is the same. There are many student and community projects and organizations to help any student become more involved.

Something for Everyone

Students interested in art can easily be drawn into the "Orale' Way" project, a student-run art gallery. It hosts art shows and small parties to which members of the Sul Ross and Alpine community are invited.

Many departments sponsor student organizations related to their fields of study. Several university organizations run frequent fundraisers for trips to conferences or events around the state and nation.
