3 College Freshman

Academics: Some of the professors are very accessible during their office hours and willing to help you if you need the help. Some of the curriculum is a bit difficult and of course there are always those who do not really teach to the class, do it to the board instead. Registration process is not that difficult to do but just make sure you follow all the steps.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I have only had one class pertaining to my major, but so far it is a great size with an outstanding professor who relates to the students on a personal level.

4 College Senior

Academics: This school offers many programs, but the one I am most familiar with is that of the nursing program. The professors are always avaliable and have never turned away my phone call or email. The program itself is very organized and put together, and they set you up for success.

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.

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.

Angelo State is a small liberal arts university, but with more than 100 majors and concentrations for undergraduates, ASU has a lot to offer. One advantage to such a small school is that professors typically know students' names and care about their well-being. This is especially true once a student reaches his major/concentration courses and may have one professor for multiple classes. Professors are usually available to help students during their listed office hours. As far as notable majors go, ASU is famous for its physics program, as well as its other science programs. The labs for these programs are up to date, and great pains are taken to ensure that they stay with the times.

Classes at ASU are not notorious for being very difficult, but there are exceptions in every field. There will be at least one difficult class per major, but for the most part, no class is unpassable so long as the student studies. So far as tutoring and assistance goes, ASU offers tutoring at no cost at its tutoring center. There is also supplemental instruction offered for certain courses, as well as a Math Lab and Writing Center. ASU also offers many online eight-week courses to students, though they are usually basic lower-level courses.
