Sul Ross State University

Alpine, Texas

AT 4,481 FEET, Sul Ross State University enjoys the distinction of literally serving as Texas’s “highest education” and is known as the Frontier University of Texas. Affordability and numerous hands-on opportunities also define one of the few comprehensive four-year institutions between El Paso and San Antonio.

Located in the scenic mountains of West Texas, and home to a famous desk perched on a windswept hill overlooking Alpine, Sul Ross State features modern facilities and a setting conducive to outdoor learning. Through experiential learning components in the curriculum and the McNair Scholars Program for undergraduate research, students have access to hands-on learning that transcends the classroom and field.

From teaching, coaching and law enforcement, to science, ranch management and fine arts, SRSU offers more than sixty undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

In addition to the original campus in Alpine, Sul Ross also has campuses in Del Rio, Eagle Pass, and Uvalde that provide upper-level and graduate educational opportunities to traditional and non-traditional students in Texas’s Winter Garden area with degrees in applied science, business administration, education, nursing, and more. Each campus houses distance-learning capabilities that provide real-time interaction among professors and students. Master’s degrees in education include programs leading to principal and superintendent certification, bilingual teaching, and counseling. SRSU’s online MBA accommodates working adults who are ready to expand their leadership and administrative skills in competitive business environments.

With twelve NCAA-sanctioned sports, an intercollegiate rodeo, a host of intramural athletics, as well as clubs and art, theater, and music organizations, students enjoy numerous extracurricular opportunities.
