STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE UNIVERSITY (SFA) began almost a century ago as a teachers’ college in Texas’s oldest town, Nacogdoches. Today, it 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 eighty undergraduate degrees and more than 120 areas of study. Small class sizes, with a student-faculty ratio of 18:1, ensure students receive personalized attention from faculty who act as mentors. The campus encompasses 422 acres and includes 31 instructional buildings and fourteen residence halls.

During the past decade, SFA has completed $425 million in campus construction projects, including three residence halls, three parking garages, and a student recreation center. New academic buildings include the Cole STEM Building, the DeWitt School of Nursing complex, and the Janice A. Pattillo Early Childhood Research Center. Additional construction projects totaling up to $125 million recently were approved by the Board of Regents.

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