3 College Freshman

Diversity: I've seen many ethnical and racial diversity among ASU. We are a school mostly consisting of Hispanics and Caucasians, but this past year we had many Koreans enter the school. I enjoyed it and even made a couple of friends. It expanded the school in people's types of religion and languages! There are also African Americans, Indians, and Chinese. Of course there could be many more from other parts of the world. ASU is open to all and that's what makes it so appealing, accepting, and enjoyable.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: San Angelo itself is a wonderful town with so much beauty. The university is wonderful!

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is mostly sunny and a nice breeze. Almost everybody walks to their classes and around campus.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The facilities are very good. Campus is always clean and well kept. The library is well organized and the staff is very helpful. The workout facility is extensive and has many different things to do.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have been satisfied with my chosen major. Though I wish that they would work with other departments so that advanced classes could be taken from multiple majors. Have been very happy with faculty support of students doing outside research to extend our knowledge and experience.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus is relatively expensive. There are nicer places but they are far away and quiet expensive. The options close to campus are very run down.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining is pretty good. There is always a wide assortment. Often they have options that are cooked right in front of you. The cafeteria staff are very flexible, they will even make up sack lunches if you arrange it ahead of time for the students to take if they can't get to the dining hall in time.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman have better housing options than returning students. Returning students kind of get the lesser dorms.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: On campus food is not always the best but the distance of eating off campus without a vehicle is too far.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The actual Greek life isn't the problem it's the ppl in it! Some students get the higher than thou complex when they really have no right! Greek parties are always fun though.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The girls at this school are mostly in cliches before it starts. If you aren't into partying you will stick out and be outcasted like me! There are a bunch of intelligent students and a lot of ones who test the boundaries of fashion! You are always seeing the same ppl so don't make too many enemies

Health & Safety: The ASU police station is literally 30 seconds off campus. There are cops always posted or circling the parking areas and make my car feel safe. Around campus there are alert buttons to push in emergency and they are posted along the walk ways! We are always getting alerts on the current safety conditions

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Some stuff to do off campus, but could add more non-alcoholic venues to the mix.

Weather: It is very hot here and midely cold in the winter. I live off campus so I have to deal with traffic every morning which is a headach, but it is not horriable.

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Here are the dorms in best to worst: Texan, Centennial, Vandervinter, Massies, Carr, Conch.

The RA's seem to do the best they can in keeping residents happy, there is always something going on and free t-shirts.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: My program was great over all. I have only one person that was unhappy with. She gave me a D and then retired, so I had no way to argue it.

1 Recent Alumnus

Computers: Let's be blunt: we have one of the worst IT dept. I have seen ever. The computers aren't kept up to date, so sometimes when I need to use a sofware that a professor assigned me to use it won't work, etc. Best just to use your own on the WiFi.

Majors: ASU is the easiest college to get into as an undergrad. They are so desperate for retention that you have to really suck to not get accepted.

Majors: I have an awesome internship. As a Graphic Designer, it was super important to get a glimpse of what the real world would. be like. Honestly though, not all departments get the same awesomeness and it isn't the dept. fault, its the internship advisers. Some fields are tight and you may not get to switch, but if you really are having trouble talk to your professor.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: ASU is getting pretty ridiculous, I''m glad I graduated when I did. Some departments excel and other aren't so great. I would recommend talking to the SGA leaders to get their opinions. They are pretty honest about things.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Something that makes ASU special is that the campus is big but yet small. I love that the classes are small and I actually get to have 101's with my proffesors, am a student not just a number.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are only two main clubs, but I've never been to them so I dont know much about them.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Everything is great at ASU. There is always something going on campus such as school activities. There are plenty of great resources. My favorite one has to be the library, it practically stays opened 24 hours on the weekdays, and there are plenty of great thing there. The have study rooms, you can rent a room for certain hours, also check out labtops and just work on your work there. The student center which is the UC, which has a small dinning area, pool tables and a really cool place to make new friends!

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: San Angelo is a small cozy town with quite a bit to do. A lake is just 10 minutes away from campus. The school is pretty centrally located and I hear down town can be a great place to visit.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have heard of only a few campus crimes and none serious. I feel very safe even late at night walking across campus alone. Thy have a great emergency responding system set up. The police are friendly and understand just make sure you read the rules! Safety is no issue for me on campus.

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.
