About Us

Sul Ross State University in Far West Texas and the Middle Rio Grande Region boasts a combination of small class sizes, an appreciation of both fine arts and the sciences and popular professional programs in a relaxed, friendly environment.

Where is Sul Ross?

The university, comprising 647 acres in Alpine, Texas, boasts a beautiful 93-acre main campus of exquisitely-detailed buildings and enjoys perhaps the most temperate climate in the state. It is situated in the Davis Mountains and overlooks the center of the city below, yet it remains within easy reach of many local stores and restaurants. The university also has a 468-acre working ranch that serves its animal science programs.

Del Rio - Eagle Pass - Uvalde

The university has three additional campuses in Del Rio, Uvalde, and Eagle Pass, offering upper-level and graduate coursework.  Sul Ross works in partnership with Southwest Texas Junior College for the first two years then students may transfer to SRSU at any of the three locations to complete their Bachelor's Degrees and continue into Master's Level work. 

A Small Size, But Plenty to Do

With an enrollment of about 2,000 students on the main campus in Alpine and about 1,000 students at the other campuses, class sizes are small, guaranteeing a much higher level of personal attention from instructors and the university's support staff. But there's plenty for students to do in their free time: lots of student clubs and organizations, a thriving arts community and a strong athletic tradition. Rodeo is significant part of the Sul Ross program, and the university is the birthplace of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Many team members have gone on to become world champions, and 1951 graduate Harley May is a charter member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Hall of Fame.
