4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing around Angelo State varies. It depends wherever a person chooses to live either for accommodation or financial is what they receive. The dorm rooms I have been too are very decent, modern and livable. I enjoy living where I am at at the moment. Very accommodating and modern.

Overall Experience: I enjoy being part of Angelo State University because it is far enough from home that I can be independent and it is close enough that I can go home whenever I desire, even for the day. I also like that it is in a small town, about the same of my home town. The classrooms are small enough to get that one on one student professor interaction. Also classmates are friendly and outgoing. Angelo is a place to meet people, and be active it is great.

Parking: I don't drive, but depending on what others have told me, the worst times are at the beginning of each semester.

Weather: Almost like home, dry and humid at the same time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: they could use more of a food variety besides just what the UC offers, the cafe, and Roscoes should accept meal plans at all times, not just in certain intervals of the day

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not a bunch of strictness on campus and/or in dorms. Mostly depends on either who your professors or RA is. Some dorm floors have very strict RA's who do weekly check in and some others don't. Some professors have a max about of absences you can have in a semester before you automatically fail the course, others do not.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: On campus housing can be a bit less expensive. I know that it is one of the cheaper universities in the state, but still some students need to live on campus because of how often the off campus apartments run a bit high, especially for those on a budget. They say living off campus is cheaper that living on, but in reality it either tends to be about the same or a bit more pricy than expected.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: More of a retirement town rather than a college town. Not much night life for those of us who are under the age of 21. Really only Midnight Rodeo, movie theater, bowling alley, and a very sketchy club called Club 81. Need to incorporate more activities for those who like to do things at night on the weekends besides the same thing all the time

2 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi mostly only works best in the dorms and in classrooms by the exterior of the building and it has the possibility of disapearing for a bit at certain times when needed most. Need to improve on that. The printing on campus is OK, they give you about 800 pages free a semester which is a decent amount.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Some of the professors are very accessible during their office hours and willing to help you if you need the help. Some of the curriculum is a bit difficult and of course there are always those who do not really teach to the class, do it to the board instead. Registration process is not that difficult to do but just make sure you follow all the steps.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Most of those students on campus are accepting to others who are in a way "different" not much bullying going around.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not very much variety besides the common McDonald's or Sonic. The nicer ones we have are Red Lobster and Chili's but that is about it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am involved in a band sorority which was somewhat easy to get into, just need to do a lot of coloring and pass all my classes. I've heard that the others are just about the same.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The student body has a variety of different looks, most of them unique in a good way. There are many places and activities where one can meet others with the same interests so that is a plus, all while doing it on campus

3 College Freshman

Academics: I have only had one class pertaining to my major, but so far it is a great size with an outstanding professor who relates to the students on a personal level.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not very many people do or take many drugs here on campus. Mostly because not only do we have our RA's who do weekly room checks along with the campus police, but the city police is literally across the street. I think most people are to scared to do much of anything like that while on campus

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are very many choices to choose from when eating off campus. They are all well kept and very tasty.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks always have a stand up somewhere on campus for you to buy things.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a couple apartment buildings that are for college students. They are in our price range with all bills included.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's always windy here. Rains once in a while

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I haven't met too many people because I'm so busy with school work.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town is a bigger town than most but I wish there was more than going out to eat the movies or bowling to do in town.

Angelo State University, and San Angelo by extension, has a small, friendly feel. In addition to a standard choice of majors, ASU offers many programs throughout the semester for entertainment, and there is a club for everyone if a student does some digging. No matter what taste a student has, there will be a club of like-minded people, and overall, people are generally accepting of each other, even if they disagree with them.

The city has all the comforts of a larger city with the feel of a small town. There is very little to be left wanting when at ASU or in San Angelo. However, students that come from larger metropolitan areas may find the small size on the boring side due to minimal variety. On the flip side, students coming from rural ares are likely to love having things to do without a long drive. A few students dislike the area, and a few students love it, but overall, many are happy with the choice to come to ASU.
