Message from Interim President Quint Thurman


Welcome to your opportunity for higher learning!  Today you have made the choice to invest in your future and in Sul Ross State University.  This university is one of the best places to start your new life and one of the most affordable in the Great State of Texas.

We like to call Sul Ross, “a destination university,” because we are located off the beaten path. And once you’re here, you won’t forget us! This small, four-year university has some of the nicest residence halls in the state, exceptional faculty in small class sizes, and individual attention to our students. Our student population is from local areas like Alpine, Fort Davis, Marfa, Fort Stockton, Pecos and many others.  We also have students from exotic locales like San Antonio, El Paso, Dallas and Houston!  And we have new students coming from places like Canada, Mexico, Nigeria, China, and Germany. In other words, we have a diverse population of students who make up our campus.

At Rio Grande College, our campuses are made up of upper level undergraduate and graduate students from the local areas of Uvalde, Eagle Pass and Del Rio.  These campuses allow students to get hands-on learning from professors with a passion for helping and instructing their students in class and in life.

One of our goals is to increase our enrollment and that means YOU! We want you to be part of our Lobo Family and become a Lobo for Life!  Our mission at Sul Ross is to prepare students to be responsible, educated, and valuable leaders in future careers throughout the nation and the world. We have high quality degree programs in fields like: Criminal Justice, Education, Biology, Animal Science, English, Theater, Natural Resource Management and many others.

I hope that you will take time to view our website to learn more about Sul Ross and what we have to offer.  This is your chance to make the best decision for your future. I look forward to seeing you on campus!

Quint Thurman,Ph.D.
