The type of student who should attend SHSU is someone who is dedicated to serving others, knows how to balance fun and education, and appreciates other cultures and diversity over all. Our motto is "The Measure of Life is its Service," meaning that as a school, we strive to learn through helping others on campus as well as in the community. For example, I am and officer in a Latin dance organization called Bailamos Latin Dance and we are currently planning a Fashion Show. All of the profit front that fashion show will go to a clinic in the community called the Pregnancy Care Center. This clinic offers free limited STD testing and is a safe haven for young women who become pregnant and do not know what to do next. They offer parenting classes as well as information and help for the young men who are in a situation where they are the father of an unborn child. Our profits will allow this clinic to continue to give free services in order to help the young people in the community. So, someone who is interested in helping the community and others should be a student at a volunteer based university such as SHSU. Another good quality to have is the ability to balance fun and education. When I first arrived to Sam, I was given more freedom than I could handle. I quickly learned that even though no one is around to tell me that I am not allowed to go out on a school night, I still need to be responsible for my education and getting things turned in as well as making it to class on time. A person who can do that from the beginning or who can learn that quickly, is also someone that belongs at my university. Lastly, anyone who wants to be a student at Sam should be able to appreciate diversity. Sam is full of people from different backgrounds and cultures. There is almost an equal amount of African American, Caucasian, and Hispanic students as well as student who come from different countries such as China and Germany. The appreciation of everyone's differences will allow the student to more openly learn about how things work in different cultures and ultimately extend the learning experience to outside of the classroom and into the real world. Sam Houston State University should have students who come in already slightly rounded in order to create a fully well rounded individual for the rest of society to welcome.
