5 College Senior

Majors: I do not recall any challenges when getting into my program. There were no particular aplications to enrol in. The most important criteria is to get advised so you have a direction when applying for classes.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: Angelo State has two locations for dining. One is in the university center, they have a variety food such as Chick Fela, to the grill and chinese food back to pizza. The second place is the cafateria, I do not eat there because I do not have a meal plan and it is a little pricey at both venues to eat and the quality is not that good.

Local Atmosphere: Good 'Ol Angelo – San Angelo's is a very safe town. It is much of a town with alot of history built into it. There are plenty art attraction areas in our down town. The culture is pretty youthful the town is always looking for ways to get the community involved with events, such as, concerts or children fairs, and even a carnaval with the rodeo, it something we look forward seasonaly.

Diversity: Pretty Diverse for the Most Part – We have a lot of different beliefs, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds but for the most part, the only thing people say there is to do here is church, eat, and drink. I have lived here my whole life and although the town is growing, I feel as though that is the one thing that is hurting us is that there isn't a lot for you to do with your free time. Overall, not a bad place to live.

4 College Senior

Nightlife: There are plenty of bars to go to around campus, but unless you are 21 there is no point of going. I think there should be more activities for students at night around the campus.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Things to Do in San Angelo – The downtown night life has really improved, and is a big attraction. The mall is not all that great, but it is a place to go. The museum hold a lot of events, but they do not advertise as well as they should.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Dry and Hot – San Angelo weather is very dry most of the year. Most of the year the weather is quiet warm.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Not Very Diverse – To be honest until recent years the campus has not been very racially diverse. The campus is mostly caucasian and hispanic.For the most part though the campus is very tolerant to people of all races.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Great Major – I am student at Angelo State University studying Communications (Advertising and Public Relations). I really like the major. Many of the courses are interesting and the professors are willing to help whenever needed.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The facilities are nice but there are not enough computer labs through out campus. There also aren't enough places for organizations to meet. This campus does not put much importance on school organizations.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: ASU athletics is nothing to be proud of besides maybe girls basketball

4 College Junior

Majors: Great Run Program – The COMM department has a great set of instructors that are willing to teach and explain if you are willing to ask questions and participate in class. I see more students not attending classes and this I am sure is not exclusive to this university. Show up to class and you will learn.

Health & Safety: Campus Police – we have campus police, that are extremely stupid. They give you tickets for anything and everything they can think of but they don't actually do anything useful.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Food in San Angelo – There are tons of places to eat in San Angelo, both local and national chains. If your favorite restaurant is not in San Angelo, just wait because chances are, it will move in soon. We just got a Chicken-E, Golden Corral, and construction is starting up soon on a Freebirds. The towns around San Angelo are close enough that you could run there for a restaurant that is not in San Angelo at the present time.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The teachers are pretty good, the book store (as well as every other university probably) is way to expensive and in half the classes that we get books we don't even use them so the teachers shouldn't require us to pay a hundred dollars per book if we won't use them. My work load is 15 hours so enough to keep me busy, but not enough to drive me crazy.

4 College Junior

Diversity: ASU offers a nice collection of students from all types of backgrounds and ethnicity.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Cost of Loving – The availability of entertainment, apartments, groceries, and dining locations are nice with a variety.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Although we are one of the safest college campuses in the state, lately there have been a number of car burglaries around campus in the dorm parking lots. No damage to the cars were done because the car targeted had their doors left unlocked. There are about 10-15 emergency call boxes scattered around campus and if at any time you feel unsafe walking on campus at dark, you can call the campus police and they will send an escort to walk you to your car or dorm.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Unknown Greeks – There are only about 4 Greek groups that are well-known here at ASU. I'm pretty sure there are at least 3 others that hardly anyone knows about... There is a wide variety of people throughout the Greek groups, so everyone pretty much likes everyone (I think).

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Hello, Cute Guy. Can I Have Your Number? There are a LOT of attractive males and females on campus. There are also many friendly and polite students here. I've met a variety of interesting people who are fun to talk to and spend time with. I meet new people and make new friends almost every day. Everyone is very social and friendly here.

Off-Campus Dining: More Discounts, Please! The options and variety is plentiful when it comes to eating off-campus. However, I only know of 2 or 3 places that give student discounts - they need to advertise that more. But there are a lot of restaurants and/or fast food places to eat that are within a short driving distance from the campus. But everything is too expensive nowadays.

1 College Senior

Athletics: Intramurals are alright, but some of the clubs like Ram's and Belle's Rugby could use some more involvement. I'd like to see students in sports like fencing, martial arts, archery, lacrosse, etc.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing? If It's Off-Campus, You're Dead. Then again, on campus housing isn't so great either. It's a lose-lose situation.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Not many places are relatively close for students who don't have vehicles or their own transportation. Plus, it would be nice to see many more sidewalks available around campus.

1 College Freshman

Computers: Tech on Campus. Everything on campus computer and everything tech wise is good. Except a few things. We are limited to 800 print credits. I know that may sound like a lot but it really isn't. I need to print papers, notes, slides for all classes, and even personal things. We need more. And also, the school has so many different wifi internet possibilities. Why so many? I think we only need one. If you don't belong to the school then you can't have access to our internet. We pay thousands of dollars, so our internet should be fast and reliable.

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.
