4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Smoking and Drinking Average – A lot of students at Albany State University smoke marijuana. As well as many students drink. There is a no tolerance act at Albany State for smoking and drinking and those found guilty of this will be jailed.

1 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Albany State University is located in the rural hard to get to Albany, GA. The school is surrounded by rural areas and basic grocery stores. The only attractions Albany, GA has to offer is the Ray Charles statue and a couple of parks. There is only one shopping mall and its one floor which means limited shopping. The locals hate the college students mostly because most of us are from bigger cities with more to offer than Albany, GA. The fast food restaurants close early at 11 o clock leaving most of us hungry at that time. The best part of Albany, GA is Albany State University.

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing in Albany! The only thing in Albany in the way of off-campus restraunts are just typical fast food and your usual waffle house! Horrid!

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Nothing to Do! Albany is a small town on the countryside with nothing to do in it. If their was not a college in the middle of it with some events to keep you busy, it would just be another farming town.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is public transportation, however most students tend to bring their own car.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Food Off-Campus – There are a variety of food places nearby like: Applebees, Popeyes, tacobell and the list goes on. The prices are fairly affordable and some places give student discounts also.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Relatively Safe – The Albany State Campus is relatively safe. There is rarely any crime that occurs due to the security measures taken. The police gate the entry and the visitors must be identified before entering.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drinks Over Anything – Drugs are not a big concern considering that a lot of people prefer to drink than smoke. Any other drug has not been an issue.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus – Staying off campus is easier for some, but since I am from a different state I don't know anything about how the apartments in Albany. I am sure if I had the money living off campus would be cool, but then transportation is involved which I do not have.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: ASU Campus Life – Campus life is alright, the dorm I stayed in was cool only because it was an upperclassman dorm. The freshman dorms are not in the best condition considering that they are the oldest.

Campus Strictness: Excellent University – The best university in the world!!! Do your work and you will be fine!

Overall Experience: My Overall experience here at Albany state has been a good one. I learned a lot about myself and I have matured. Being away from home taught me a lot about responsibility. I appreciate the friends I made here and the organizations i am apart of. I learned how to be less antisocial and more social.

5 College Senior

Diversity: There is a lot of students from different ethnic backgrounds that attend Albany state. There are students from Russia, India, Argentina and other countries.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Albany State University is located in Albany which is a small city. There are places you can go to such as fun park or the bowling alley and there are plenty of restaurants but you will need a car. So if you or your friends have a car, you will be able to enjoy the activities that Albany has to offer, but it can be difficult to get around if you do not have a car.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Food is great exspecially on Fried chicken Wednesdays'!

5 College Student

Weather: It usually is always sunny. There has been some rainy days. The weather is AMAZING. Some days you can even wear shorts. I am used to the cold, rainy weather. Everything changed, when I arrived in Albany.

Drug Safety: Having only been at Albany State University for 3 weeks, I've already seen and heard of tons of drug and alcohol use among students. So The drug and alcohol scene here is high. The only drug that I hear of anyone doing here is marijuana and I also hear of a lot of the students drinking. Peer pressure isn't high here so you do what you want, when you want, with who you want without feeling forced to do so.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: With Albany State University being a historically black university you should expect to encounter a lot of African Americans. However, that doesn't mean that you should only expect to see 1 general shade of people. There are millions of shades of people here with so many different types of personality. Also, you should expect to see very unique sense of dress and hairstyles from everyone. The boys and girls at Albany are typically nice and accepting of each other, showing lots of respect towards one another.

Facilities: The student facilities at Albany State University are fairly respectable. The lighting in most of the facilities are usually dim & there usually isn't any type of excitement to the rooms. Most of the buildings have dark, tacky carpets with colorless, bland walls. In the library and all of the other areas where computers are located, most of the technology works well. All in all, I would give Albany State's student facilities a grade of a B-, simply because it's not horrible but it could definitely use some improvement.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: No Car – i don't have a car so i wouldn't know much about parking on campus
