ESTABLISHED AS A college for teachers in 1923, Stephen F. Austin State University has grown into a regional institution comprising six colleges—business, education, fine arts, forestry and agriculture, liberal and applied arts, and sciences and mathematics.

The university offers approximately 80 undergraduate degrees and more than 120 areas of study. Traditional classroom instruction, outdoor labs, real-world experiences, and award-winning research combine to provide a superior learning environment. Small class sizes, with a student-faculty ratio of 18:1, ensure undergraduates receive personal attention.

The 422-acre campus is located in Nacogdoches, the oldest town in Texas, with its 29 instructional buildings and 14 residence halls situated among pine trees and natural beauty. During the past decade, more than $306 million in construction has included a $46.4 million science, technology, engineering, and mathematics building scheduled for completion in fall 2018.

The Lumberjacks and Ladyjacks compete in 17 intercollegiate sports at the NCAA Division I level, bringing entertainment and school pride to campus. In addition, live performances, cultural programs, and special events take place throughout the year.
