What to do while you’re here

There’s more to a campus tour than sightseeing. In addition to checking out the campus amenities and residence halls, a campus tour also gives you the option to meet with SFA faculty and staff and get to know more about our various student groups.

Want to make the most of your visit? Here are a few people you should talk to and departments you should visit while you’re here:


You can meet with an SFA admissions representative before or after every tour to learn more about how to apply to SFA, from submitting test scores and completing an application to setting up a mySFA account. Admissions representatives are available most weekdays.

For more information or to schedule an appointment with an admissions representative, call 936.468.2504 or email

Academic departments

Interested in a specific major or area of study? Meet with a faculty member from your academic department of choice and learn more about coursework, curriculum and career opportunities.

To schedule an appointment with a faculty member, you will need to contact the specific academic department.

Financial aid

Concerned about the cost of a college education? We can help. Visit our financial aid department to learn how to apply for financial aid and get details about the different types of financial aid available to SFA students, from grants to Federal Work-study programs to student loans.

To meet with a financial aid representative, just visit their office. If you want to meet with your assigned aid counselor, you’ll want to make an appointment in advance.

Student services

While you’re here, make sure to drop by the Baker Pattillo Student Center to learn more about the variety of services available to Lumberjacks, from dining and entertainment options to mail and printing. And if you get hungry, you don’t have to go far – the student center is home to several popular favorites like Starbucks, Chick-fil-A and more.

Residence halls

Living on campus is a great way to get the full “college experience.” And whether you’re looking for quiet, low-key surroundings or larger-than-life fun, you’ll find a perfect match in one of our many residence halls.

Arts and athletics

Don’t forget to leave some time for fun while you’re here. If you’re into sports, you can attend one of our many athletic events and help cheer the Lumberjacks or Ladyjacks to victory (don’t forget to wear purple!).

Not a sports fan? No worries. There’s still plenty to do. In the mood for a movie? Our Student Activities Association (SAA) Cinema, located in the Baker Pattillo Student Center, presents great movies at a great price. And don’t forget to check out our fine arts calendar, which lists upcoming performances at the School of Music and School of Theater.
