3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek Life isn't incredibly prominent here, but it is popular enough to hang out and meet some new friends.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The food varies enough so that it doesn't get tedious, but of course after a while it does tend to get a bit boring.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone keeps in relatively good shape and the facilities are well taken care of, which shows on the physical quality of the students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Pretty typical campus housing. A couple of the buildings are new and very nice.

Greek Life: Greek Life is not super popular on campus. Most of the sororities are seen as lame, and the fraternities are only known for the parties they throw. Honestly, I do not think it is worth the money to join Greek Life. There's plenty of other social gatherings available.

Off-Campus Housing: Quite a few apartment complexes throughout San Angelo, although most students choose to rent a house instead. Many options to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Nothing to worry about, but it is a little frightening walking by yourself at night. The ASU Police Department recently suggested that students download a safety app, and that has helped me to feel more secure.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Having a car on campus is pretty important. If you are not bringing a car to campus, make sure that you know someone who does, otherwise it will be pretty boring having to stay on campus all the time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus isn't too strict, although parking is the one thing that they are known for. Do not park in the wrong section or you WILL get a ticket, and you are not able to get by with a warning.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Angelo State is fairly good about being reasonable when it comes to bad weather. The ASU Police Department always sends out emails to alert students of bad weather, and class is postponed or cancelled if the weather continues to worsen.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A variety of restaurants, especially Mexican food. There are a lot of hole-in-the-wall restaurants scattered throughout San Angelo and the quality and price is very reasonable.

College Freshman

Academics: I am pre-declared, so this is not applicable.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is not a LOT of school spirit, but the games are always fun to attend. Basketballs games are typically the most spirited. The CHP (Center for Human Performance) is the gym and it is very nice. Rock climbing and four full court basketball courts, along with plenty of exercise equipment. Also, there is a disc golf course around campus.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are three different computer labs, or at least that I know of. If all the computers are occupied, you can check out a laptop to borrow for a few hours. I always have wifi around campus. Each student receives 800 print credits per semester, which I have never completely used. Bringing a computer isn't necessary, but it would be nice to have one if you wanted to do homework in your dorm, instead of having to go to the library.

College Freshman

Majors: I am currently pre-declared, so I have not gotten into a program yet.

College Freshman

Majors: Since I am pre-declared, I can't really answer this question. Although I am planning on business and have seen the program and love it!

College Freshman

Nightlife: I do not party, or at least that kind of "party." There's plenty of things to do around campus that don't involve drinking!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process to receive financial aid is long and confusing... It was also difficult because the financial aid was not very good at clearly explaining everything. One tip I have for receiving financial aid is to make sure to stay on top of it. Regularly check your account and be proactive in making sure that you don't have any small fees or something you did not know you had to pay for.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather varies greatly. during the summer and into fall semester it is very hot. During this winter season it has fluctuated from being very cold to being able to run around outside with your shirt off, but then the next day a jacket is strongly recommended.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are not very well promoted. There is almost no school spirit towards the sports. the gym is vice nice but does not accommodate for people who have a different variety of workout styles, such as cross-fitters.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is a far variety of decent quality off-campus housing. Yet the prices are on the higher side, but majority are fairly close to campus and shopping centers.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: ASU's Greek life is pretty big and many to choose from.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: You see there cars but not every second do you feel like you're being watched

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Scholarships are hard to find unless you already pre-apply

4 College Junior

Diversity: ASU is very excepting of any race, religion, or sexual orientation

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.
