A variety of nearby shopping
At SFA, you get the best of both worlds: natural beauty and urban convenience. Our beautiful campus, located in the East Texas Piney Woods, is peaceful and perfect for weekend hikes, camping trips and outdoor fun. But don’t let the trees fool you. We’re just a stone’s throw away from your favorite shopping malls and retail stores. Don’t feel like leaving campus? No worries. You can find plenty of gear – from textbooks to electronics to official Lumberjack merchandise – at one of three well-stocked campus-area bookstores.
