Stephen F. Austin State University

Nacogdoches, Texas

STEPHEN F. AUSTIN STATE UNIVERSITY 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 bachelor’s, forty master’s, and three doctoral degrees with small class sizes that ensure students receive personalized attention from faculty members who act as mentors.

SFA aligns academic offerings with industry demands, recently launching an aviation initiative, where students can graduate with a bachelor’s degree and pilot’s license in four years; a Bachelor of Business Administration in entrepreneurship; a master’s degree in publishing; and an agricultural communications major, preparing graduates to educate and inform the public about important agricultural issues impacting daily life.

SFA continues to make substantial upgrades to campus infrastructure and technology to uphold its promise of encouraging academic innovation. Recent additions include the Cole STEM Building with innovative makerspaces and cutting-edge tech and a new first-year residence hall. Multi-million-dollar expansions of fine arts and athletics facilities are underway.

The Lumberjacks and Ladyjacks compete in eighteen intercollegiate sports at the NCAA Division I level and hold 98 Southland Conference Championships, while Spirit Teams hold 31 national championships. Cultural and special programs take place throughout the year.
