5 College Junior

Majors: I love my Social Work program. The courses are interesting and the teachers are very knowledgeable and have a lot of experience in the field.

3 College Junior

3 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity is accepted on campus.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Most guys/girls are unfriendly and very materialistic.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek housing available. Greeks aren't viewed any different than non-Greeks.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most off campus housing options are pricey and of not good quality.

4 College Junior

Academics: The workload depends on the student. Learn to prioritize and you're golden. The registration process is very convenient and if you second-guess yourself, just ask your adviser which courses would benefit you most. The professors are mostly kind and willing to help and it means a lot to them when you take the time to get to know them outside the class room.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: As I explained earlier, I do not live on campus and cannot offer too much here. I do however, spend a lot of time at the dorm lobbies visiting friends and can say that the buildings are very nice and clean. Dorms differ depending on the building you live in though; some are extremely spacious while others offer company 24/7.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus strictness is not enforced to strongly. The police are rarely involved but when they are, they mean business. Attendance is on the students and the police let the students make that decision for themselves. I don't know any of the police officers personally, but they're always willing to exchange a "hello" or "how are you?"

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I graduated high school with 74 credit hours, enough credits to live off campus my first year in college. My parents and I expected the exemption from on-campus living so we bought and renovated a house 13 miles from the campus. I did not have to bother with finding an apartment or dealing with people living below and above me or paying the landlord. I lucked out considering my living expenses and convenience.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I don't live on campus or have a meal plan; I rely mostly on small local restaurants and big-business diners. I have yet to try most of the cuisine offered here. As for the cost, I'd say everyone is willing to compromise or provide discounts if you ask.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Students are always updated as to whether the roads are bad, an e-mail scam is spreading around, or sketchy phone reviews are occurring. I feel pretty safe and see that fellow students are willing to help one another should any danger arise.

4 College Junior

Diversity: My circle of friends includes an 18 year old, bisexual, black male who is not much concerned with his political standing, a 24 year old Korean women who is devoted to the Roman Catholic church, a Vietnamese/Caucasian freshman who is poorly-established economically, and a Mexican baptist who's ethnic heritage almost matches mine completely. We are all extremely different but get along rather well.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't play sports much; I run. Still, I can't help but get excited when basketball games are going on and everyone's painted and chanting in unison contagiously. The same goes for football, even more so for intramural sports like soccer and vollyball, as that's us, the students competing with and against friends and enemies on our own terms and good spirit.

4 College Junior

Majors: The professors are not overwhelmed with the number of students so are often available during office hours or phone calls and e-mails. They're kind, to, and show honest interest in helping with any questions regarding the course material or not. Most of my professors are Animal Science majors with doctorates but prefer to be called by their first name or simply, "sir."

4 College Junior

Majors: I had an internship the summer prior to the Fall 2013 semester at Angelo State University. I worked at the Abilene Zoo as an intern in the Attwater's Prairie Chicken Recovery Project. My responsibilities included raising Attwater's prairie chickens from the incubation of the eggs to releasing them as independent adults, all the while cleaning, supplying the appropriate heat, diet, and environment, as well as recording their weights and identification bands as they progress in size and maturity daily.

Finding an internship is not difficult at ASU as there are sights available to the student in finding internships relevant to your major. It's having an internship whilst doing well in the courses that is difficult. Manage your priorities.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: It's usually pretty chill. People are either out or in clusters within the dorm lobbies, library and university center. To be frank, it's what you make of it; there are always things to do and people to see if you try.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's always there. Someone's either getting high or getting drunk because it's the thing to do I guess. They don't push it on you, though. "You do You and I'll do Me," is the phrase that's tossed around most times. They don't treat you any different whether you do smoke or drink or do both or neither; you are not teased or complimented, ridiculed or praised. People have other things to worry about and there are always other things to do. In fact, the actual taking of drugs and drinking of alcohol doesn't even occur on campus much. It's the talk of the where and how and when of innebriation that's always there as opposed to the bottles and cigarettes.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: Don't fall into the party scene just because that's "what everyone does". There are plenty of other opportunities to get involved in other than the keg parties. Make college meaningful and not forgetful.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love being an education major. They do an amazing job preparing you for the real world and are extremely organized. If you are overwhelmed, talk to your professors and they will help. They are extremely personable and want you to succeed.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is over rated. I am in a sorority that is not part of the Greek system or Panhellinic society and we are often looked down upon because we are bigger than the other sororities. Just get involved in something that tests your comfort zones in a positive way and makes you enjoy your college experience.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football team is bad but think they are cool, track and field are really good, softball and baseball are fun to watch, and volleyball team is really good.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing is extremely expensive! Definitely live off campus with a good roommate if you can. I met a lot of amazing friends in the dorm and had a very good experience, but as a whole, they are very expensive and living off campus is a better choice after your first year.

5 College Junior

Diversity: I love all the diversity and everything that goes with it!

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Police are there if you need them and try their best to keep the campus safe. I think a lot of safety concerns come from who you associate with and activities participated in. Just be safe, don't walk or go out alone, lock up your stuff, and always have a DD.

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.
