4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety and security on campus in pretty good in my view. The police & public safety is always around, but is mostly there for when we need them the most. They are not overbearing nor are they utterly strict towards students. Campus crimes on our campus are very uncommon if we have any at all, there have only been 2 crimes committed that I have been aware of this semester. Crimes here are rare, which is good. Safety on our campus is a main focus and concern for all security measures, safety measures and police as well. I feel very safe when I am alone on campus. I have never felt threatened, nor have a I ever felt uncomfortable being alone. I think we have a very safe campus and I am glad we have such a great safety concern.

Drug Safety: The drug scene at our school is honestly not that bad. There are very rare occurrences when I hear of stories involve drugs. The students here are not very open to drugs and are not pressured into drugs either. The alcohol visibility is somewhat average. There are parties every now and then, but they are always busted by the police. Most students who take part in drinking are of age however. The students who are underage and drink are usually the first students to drop out or fail out. The peer pressure here is very slim to none actually, everyone here respects the decisions of students which is very respectful. Overall, the drugs and alcohol scene at our campus are very small and simple.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining options for my campus are average in my opinion. The dining halls are relatively close due to location, and are usually open at reasonable times for students. The varieties and values for students is average or above average. There is always varieties for students eating options and there is always good value with the food that is served. The best place on campus to eat is at the University Center, there is Chic-Fil-A offered on our meal plans, and also there are good hamburgers, and pizza joints as well. The meal plan options for students is also varied which is based on money and quantity of food you want to receive. The food on campus overall is average but is also varied.

Majors: In regards to internships, I have not been involved in one. Mainly because I am not qualified yet as a student to register or apply for internships. I am very interested in internships and plan to apply for them when I am eligible.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The program I am currently under is amazing. I can't necessarily say if I would do it all over again mainly because this is my first year in the kinesiology program at ASU. My career goals are to pursue a career in Physical Therapy and to hopefully work under a specialized knee surgeon or own my own practice. The only concerns I have with finding a job are the requirements and prerequisites. Overall, I am happy with the program I am in and hope to stay that way.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity on campus is average I believe. Most students do carry a diverse range of race, religion, and moral diversities. Which is normal for a campus. The students here are very accepting of different races, religions, political beliefs and ethnical diversities. The only acceptance issue of most students here is sexual orientations of students, most students are very accepting but there are a handful of students who can be discriminant. But that is what is expected of college campuses, not all students will be accepted in certain social standings or groups, but no matter what there will always be groups who are accepting and understanding which is one reason why I enjoy going to this school.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The local weather on my campus is average to moderate. We do not receive rain that often so it really isn't an issue for us. When it does rain, every students carries an umbrella on hand which is always convenient. The weather overall I would say isn't bad at all, it's just very calm and normal.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls at our school are very broad and varied. Which is a great thing. The interests of guys and girls is relatively broad, almost everyone is interested in the same things if not similar things. Most students here dress relatively normal, there are a select few students who choose to make outgoing fashion statements, but that's what college is about, expressing yourself. The social life of guys and girls is also very excellent, all of the students here are very friendly and very nice. We are a very social community and a very socially active campus. The relationships between guys and girls is also in good ratings as well, most relationships are very laid back and normal. Everyone accepts everyone here, there are different groups of people and social standings, but at the end of the day the guys and girls here are overall wonderful.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My current major is such a great opportunity for me. I am learning so much about myself, the body, and what I want to do with my degree. The curriculum is very tedious and time consuming, but it is all 100% worth it. I am very picky about the presentation about my homework and such so the strictness of the curriculum is okay. The unique aspects of my major are also really great as well. Not only are we open to so many varied opportunities in the medical field, but we are also unique individuals ourselves which allows us to develop our career as we go throughout college. The workload is minimum for me, I do believe the workload will increase over each semester. The work however, is sometimes very hard but it is also interesting and intriguing. All in all I am happy with my major of choice and I plan to keep my major.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The academics offered at my school are great. The professors are very good at teaching their courses and are very helpful. They are always willing to help out with homework, essays, etc. They are also very concerned with the grades and outcomes for each student. The curriculum for the students is also very great, as stated above. The registration process is also very easy and simple. Study options and study areas for our academics is very excellent too. Study options are open to all students for almost all courses, they are open at very covenant times for students and not only that but they are helpful as well. The study areas are also varied and optional, which is good for all students. The academics at my school are great and I am glad I chose to come to school here.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! The dorm rooms I currently live in are great. They are spacious, clean, safe, and in a relatively close location to my classes. The social atmosphere is also really good as well, we are constantly being involved in dorm room get togethers, and other social events that our residential advisor designs. The buildings are all fairly new and are all well kept up with cleanliness. The perks of living on campus are not only the memories and friendships you develop, but also the independence you learn. You learn how to live on your own, provide for your own, and how to take care of yourself. I am very happy with where I live and hope to stay here for another year.

4 College Freshman

Parking: The parking situation at our college is not even really a situation, our parking is very convenient and open. The parking permits are at an average cost, which is great for students. Parking availability is also great, there is never a time when I cannot find a parking spot. Our parking enforcements are somewhat strict, we are required to park in whatever parking zone we are given. Overall I think the parking situation at our campus is perfectly fine.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid at ASU is a very frustration and irritating process. Most of the advisors do not provide the required amount of help for students as they should. I know this from personal experience, I have been dealing with financial aid since the first month. I am constantly being reminded of tuition fees I owe that I was never aware of or told by an advisor. I think our financial aid needs a new system or new employees, because they do not know how to handle money situations. I have had a academic hold on my registration due to loan and financial aid issues due to the financial aid office, which has causes me to fall behind on my classes.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus at this point in time, but I do have family and friends that do. Almost all of the apartment complexes in the area near the school are all for college students. Rent is average which is good for students, the quality of the apartments are good, and the variety and room for creativeness is wonderful. All students love the off campus living communities. All in all our off campus living is by far a very safe and humble environment for college students.

4 College Freshman

Computers: All of the campus computers, printers, network reliability and speed, and wifi are very excellent. There are very rare occurrences when our Wifi is down, or the computers are down. However, technology always finds a way to inform the students if there are any Wifi problems, or if there are updates and such. The need for a personal computer is am essential for college, reasons being that certain professors require computers, students take notes and labs with their computers, and all in all for homework and essays. Overall I would say our computer and technology system is one of r best around.

5 College Freshman

Weather: I love the weather here! It's not too cold, it's not too hot.

Scholarships: After figuring out what documentations were missing and finally turning everything in i received my financial aid. While it did not help much at all, it was still some sort of aid.

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options are good if you have the money to go. Living on the "college life" budget can limit the number of outings to off-campus dining.

Local Atmosphere: The town of San Angelo is great if you have a way of getting around. Without transportation it is easy to seem "stuck" on campus.

3 College Freshman

Academics: For pre-med (biology) majors, it is recommended to attend classes about 17 hours per week. It is very time consuming.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The course work can be a little overwhelming, but it becomes easier as you get accustomed to the way the professor teaches the course.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not know much about the off-campus housing because you much be at least a sophomore in college or have a number of completed hours in order to live off-campus.

College Freshman

Majors: I do not understand what this question is asking.

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.
