5 College Student

Athletics: The fan support at ASU is awesome! The coaching staff and all players are well respected and work hard to make ASU proud. I am very proud to be a student at ASU and support our athletic department

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather isn't hard to get used to. It can be hot or cold but nothing unbearable. Most are able to adapt pretty quickly and don't mind walking to class. Others will just drive to each class to avoiding walking.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Pretty much anything you want to eat, you can find within a 10 minute drive of the campus. If there are student discounts, however, they're not well advertised. Also, if you're on foot, your choices are pretty limited. There aren't any big fast-food joints in the streets around the campus, you're in for a bit of a walk.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are several computer labs scattered across campus - in the library, the science building, and mostly the math/computer science building where the biggest one is. The computers are reliable and have the latest software.

Not having your own computer isn't a big deal but a lot of teachers do assign online homework and material so it is convenient. The WiFi is available all through-out campus, though there is some stability issues in the dorms during peak hours.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek life at ASU is mostly known for parties. I know they do charity events, and occasionally there are field-day type events where they compete but they aren't a huge active part of the school.

If you're not in a fraternity or sorority it's not a big deal, and if you are most people only know if you're wearing the T-shirt.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are always police everywhere. The campus is safe, no serious crimes have taken place. I've never felt unsafe.

However, make sure you lock doors, especially during move-out/in days as the residents of the apartments across the street from the dorms have been known to steal from students.

There have also been two shootings in the same apartments in my year and a half at ASU though the students have never been in danger.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm in Angelo State University, and my classes along with the instructors I'm contempt. Instructors are most of the time there when you need their assistance. I have enjoyed experiencing my education in this fair campus, and hope to lear much more. There is also various organizations to be involved in campus

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I love it! On the meal plan I can eat 15 meals per week. It is a variety and all you can eat.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I have no trouble with transportation. I use my truck and my bike but I am close enough to walk to most of my classes.The campus is well designed and have safety options for night travel.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The health care center on campus is easy to find and quick to use. The safety on campus is good because we have our own campus police department.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Angelo State is a smaller University and that's what instantly caught my eye, its easy to navigate and find your classes. As i learned more about the university I realized they have many things to help you succeed through your time here. The tutor center is open at very convenient hours and they have tutors for every subject possible, they also have a math lab specifically to help you with math. Some major classes have tutoring called Supplemental Instruction that is taught by a student who has already taken the class and knows how it works. The Center for Human Performance (gym) is brand new! Also the library got an upgrade.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: only 3 clubs and if u cant do the two step then u only have 2 options. they r called.... 1) fuego, 2) Club 84, 3) Midnight Rodeo

1 College Sophomore

Transportation: no transportation options available if u dont bugg ur friends for rides

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: there has been numerous break-ins, and my bike has been stolen and my friends cars broken in twice

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a decent amount of financial aid, but it wasn't easy, so I had to stay on top of things.

4 College Senior

Majors: The process of getting into an Elementary Education is very easy. There was no special application process when applying for the program. In fact, your advisor will help keep you up-to-date on things you need to do and he/she will also make sure you are taking the right prerequisites and in the correct order.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on ASU's campus. It is a small, beautiful, safe place to be. Keep your doors locked at night, and hide any valuable items that are in your vehicle to avoid petty theft or late-night pranks.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: San Angelo is a relatively small town. The small town atmosphere helps make the town feel like home. San Angelo also offers a variety of activities including shopping at the Sunset Mall, movie entertainment at Tinseltown, bowling at Stadium Lanes, plenty of eating areas, and many local parks. The professors at Angelo State University are friendly and usually know each of their students on a personal basis.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Living at Home in My Hometown – I have lived in Grape Creek for as long as I can remember. It takes twenty minutes to get to campus. I spent a semester living at home and found it so-so. There were however, some pros to it. I got to stay in my own bed every night like I have done for the past 19 years. I did not have to have a meal plan which lowered my tuition and fees cost. There were more areas for me to park, which got me closer to specific buildings I needed. On the con side, I spent majority of my money on gas. Another thing I did not like was having to follow my mother's rules since I was still under her roof. Lack of freedom was an issue for me.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Being from Texas, the majority of our students are Caucasian, however with our school adding more room for international studies, there has been an increase in foreign students coming to our school; mainly Koreans. There are a good amount of African Americans as well and they are mainly involved with our extracurricular activities such as sports.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: The main drug I have noticed while on campus is cigarettes. I do not live on campus so I only see people smoking mostly in the afternoons while I am on my way to class. On a side note, those who do smoke follow the campus policy of distance from the doorways. From what I hear however, alcohol is the main issue with students...especially those who are in a fraternity or sorority.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are few student housing options..that being 2..and all the other apartments are older. Not many new apartments. But rent is relatively cheap in the area. Pretty low crime rate was a big plus. Also everything is pretty close to the school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants to eat at while you are in San Angelo. Many places do offer discounts like Rosa's or Golden Chick. It's convenient because there are many restaurants located near the University. Plus, San Angelo is a small town, so even if you have to travel across town to eat at a restaurant, it usually only 10 minutes away and very easy to find your way back to campus.

4 College Junior

Parking: cost is relatively cheap compared to bigger universities and if you don't have a D permit I hear it is hard to find parking in the B lots.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus. However, I do have friends that do. The dorms are very safe and people are very friendly there.

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.
