4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Nothing Major – there's not nuch diversity, i know a majority of the ppl there because we graduated from the same high school but it doesn't really bother me much.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: i chose Albany because my stepdad used to work in the city and the campus was amazing to me. the students are friendly, the faculty is very helpful and hands-on.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a beautiful school to be in, great atmosphere, and great people.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Nothing too fancy, some quads have extremely delicious food while others have generic kinds so the balancing out gives it a medium grade. Special occasion food days are great.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Teachers are interesting, diverse, and offer incredibly different perspectives as well as methods of teaching classes. Flexibility is great for the most part.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: ASU ! My overall experience at school as been pretty good. Albany may be a small town but Albany State University really makes the whole city more vibrant. The campus is beautiful and is still renovating alot. The staff and faculty can use some work but for the most part I love my school !

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Wonderfully Dangerous – The cost of living in Albany Ga, is very low so finding a one bedroom apartment was easy and affordable, however, the crime rate in Albany is high. Living off campus is a risk that I had to take.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: It Kept Me Alive – The food was not the best when I could afford to stay on campus, but it kept me alive. The options are better now that we have Einstein Bros. and Chick-fil-a

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Better Than Most – I had the worst experience with the financial aid process at the first university I attended. When I transferred to Albany State, it was a breath of fresh air. My financial aid advisor did exactly that, advised my parents and I on the best possible way for me to be able to pay for school without taking out extensive loans. However, some rules changed and I got a new financial aid advisor the next year. With my new advisor, my experience has been like that of my previous attended university. However, because I had such a great first advisor, I understand the process, know when I'm supposed to complete my FAFSA and know what to apply for so I won't have to take out extensive loans. Because of that, I will say my financial aid experience has been great.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Albany State is better than most. It was my second choice when I could no longer attend my first choice university. I did not want to attend Albany State but my parents didn't give me a choice. Since being here, I have gotten involved with activities and organizations around campus which caused me to enjoy my stay here more than before. If I could do it all over, I would choose Albany State again because even with it's many faults, some of the faculty and staff I have come to know have helped and encouraged me as if I were there own child. However, I would not recommend this school to someone who is used to the city or suburban lifestyle considering Albany State is in the country and I would not recommend this school to someone who is used to being in an environment where the standard of excellence is met every time.

Facilities: The facilities at Albany State have gotten better. The gym is decent, however, a majority of the equipment needs to be fixed and the administration could use some help. A new student center along with two new dorms were just completed and opened in August 2011. The new students center is very convenient and much better than the old student union. It has more options for fast food, looks extremely welcoming, and has areas where students and guests can either play games or just sit and enjoy themselves (the old student center didn't have the previous listed). The two new dorms consist of a mini-theater, campus store, fast food restaurant, and dance studio. However, the location of the dorms is in a location that inconveniences the students, thus not allowing the students to be able to enjoy these amenities.

2 College Student

Facilities: Unique Things – i rate it a c cause im the type that sticks to myself so im not really into going out or doing really anything. im a homebody and study and plan to take things more serious and have fun later on.

3 College Student

Weather: the weather is fine. only when it rains does it suck lol.

2 College Student

Campus Dining: I have nothing against campus food. I would just rather eat off campus when i can.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safe & Secure – Albany State University has a great campus police service. They do a great job at keeping crime down on the campus despite the fact that the campus is open. It is a lovely and safe campus to stay on, and I enjoy my time on campus. Things are always safe and under control.

2 College Freshman

Parking: basically, if you park some where you are not suppose to park you get a 25 dollar fine on your account and your car get booted. And honestly you seriously need a car on campus to get around.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Night Life at Albany – at albany most freshmans hang out unil 6:00 in the morning or maybe longer and their arent even 21 yet so thats a no no. our school party extremley to much. when they go out to parties they get wasted a lot.And far as transportation, if you dont't have any gas money, then basically you won't get any where

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety on Campus – It is important to have as much as safety on albany state campus. But sad to say there is not much safety on our campus, I mean we have had locals to come on our campus shootingothers, gang violance, and having to deal with many thefts on campus.So there really is not a lot of security safety on our campus. If i could graduate in a hurry a will to pretect many campuses around the world.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Stay on top of you financial aid. No one is going to baby you to stay on top of your money for school. Scholarships and grants are out there you have to go get them. I was a thousand dollars shorts but my two scholarships i received at graduation helped me out.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My best experiences here at Albany State would have to include the meeting of new people on campus, the live talent shows and homecoming events. I also appreciate the positive teachers that i have.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Student Life and Affairs – On campus is a multiple things to keep students busy and out of trouble. The new students center which holds a huge lounging area a game room for arcade gaming pool table tennis and video games, and a select sit down restaurants. The library which holds multiple computer labs and references is a great study spot. The sports facility is equipped with a weight room swimming pool and a court with multiple goals for people to run games on.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Student Life – The students on campus are all socially active. Most involved in sports or organizations that better the student life at Albany State University. Its not really a fashion show here. Most students dress comfortable and to the weather for that day. Most people don't really hang with other students not from their city or where they are native to.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Albany State University with one thing in mind, not only to get a better education but to also graduate with a Major I see potential in. My major is Supply Chain Logistics which Albany does have, with a military Logistics base located down the street for internship. The campus is always live with professors and alumni willing to help make a difference in the students lives. Every Sunday,Monday and Wednesday study tables are offered with tutors and professors that offer help in subjects students are troubled with.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Need for a Car – You Need a car on campus if not there is no way of getting to the store or getting to some places you need to go.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The police are always protrolling the campus doing a great job.
