3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The police do a pretty decent job of protecting the campus, but sense this is such a small town, they pull you over for some of the most ridiculous reasons. The school also has a system that alerts you if a murder or rapist is on the loose, the alert system will send us a text telling us we should stay indoors.

2 College Freshman

Weather: It snows a lot and the temperature reaches the negatives more often than usual. Classes are far away, so when it gets cold it is extremely hard to walk to class and stay warm.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: No transportation unless we have our own car or if someone is will to drive us.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors care, but are limited in number. The English Department (my major), is close knit, and accesable.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: The adventure program offers rides to their events.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not great. Few options. No place to get a great burger.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The English department is very close with each other, and from what I've seen, all of the other departments are the same. The work is what you would expect out of college, and the same goes for curriculum. The English building just got renovated, so everything is new and pretty. All English Majors have the chance to work in what is called the "writing workshop" if they want.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: It is honestly up to the people you know. Technically, there are two clubs in town that a lot of people I know enjoy. Personally, though, I've had much more fun going to the Sand Dunes with a bunch of my close friends, and just hanging out.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: As far as I know, the only transportation they have for non-athletes is the friends you have and their cars. It's a small town, though, so everything is within walking distance, for the most part.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The RA's can be a bit strict sometimes, but it's their job. They are always friendly, though, and are usually "on your side" about most things. They honestly just want to help you.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't many places open past like eight and I'm under 21 so bars aren't exactly fun to be at.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Sometimes there aren't enough computers in the labs for students to use but its getting better since they decided to open up another lab 24/7

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Alamosa doesn't exactly have the nicest arrangements but they're livable.

5 College Freshman

Computers: There is always availability of computers on campus. I can't remember a time where all of the computer labs were taken up. As far as I know, there are four main computer labs spread out on campus, two of which are in the library. Each lab consists of at least 15-30 computers. Network reliability and speed are very reliable. It wouldn't be too much of a problem if you didn't have your own personal computer due to the amount and efficiency of the computer labs and printers available.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Although there are not really any places with student discounts, there is a variety in this small town, people just have to look. There are Mexican, Italian, Chinese/Viatnamese, and others. If you are looking for cheap AND very good quality, I would recommend Campus Cafe, which is about two blocks away from the college campus where they serve mainly breakfast, but you can also have the traditional burger or quesadilla. VERY good.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Its nice but the party house get in the way sometimes and having many poeple you dont like pay rent is less then fun..

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Many kids smoke in genreal, so weed is commonly smoked wihtout knowing. But the majority of students dont do that on campus

4 College Freshman

Weather: I enjoy the fall and cold so I really enjoy this school

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I do not live on campus or anywhere near as I am an online student living in Japan.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My degree program requires an intensive internship. I have not begun to complete this yet, but I am excited to do so as it will entail putting my knowledge into action in a supervised environment. This is an incredibly important piece of educating counselors to provide effective therapy.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The accessibility of my program being a military spouse living overseas is unbeatable and cost effective for an online program. There were not many options online for my degree program and Adams State exceeds my expectations all the time.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: The process of getting into my Clinical Mental Health Counseling masters program was not complicated. Adams State Advisers were very helpful and the admissions process is not dead lined making it easy to complete while I was moving to a foreign country.

College Sophomore

Transportation: I am an online-plus student living away from campus and local transportation doesn't apply to me.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The dining options off campus are good, and cheap. There's not a huge variety of restaurants but the ones that are around are decent. Campus Cafe is a local favorite.

3 College Senior

Weather: I enjoy the weather because I know when it's cold that means I can go snowboarding. The snow does not stick so it's very easy to get around. There are high winds in the Spring.
