3 College Sophomore

Majors: Computer Science – Not much I can say being only a freshmen in terms of hours. I'll need to take more classes before I can make an accurate judgment. As of now I have only been taking general education courses which are not as much fun as major courses... or really necessary in my own opinion.

3 College Junior

Majors: I Changed My Major – Arkansas State offers a very wide range of Major options. However, the degree I was initially seeking, ASU does not offer. It wasat that point I decided to look for other avnues and that is when I discovered I was intereted in Communication DIsorders. This was a great decisionfor me because as it turns out I enjoy this program very much.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Non_Traditional Housing – The non-traditonalapartments are a colorful, and peaceful place to call home. I lived there for two years, but decided to move to a bigger unit that might include a washer and dryer (that s the one thing they do not have in the apartments). The manager Kelly onder is friendly, helpful, and creative. While theweather is nice the non-traditional housing has fun days such as; movie night, mini carnivals, etc.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: The clubs in the city are some of my favorite places to visit. I enjoy heading to the Brick House when I want to enjoy an evening out on the town. The Dragon City Chinese Restaurant on Main Street, is a great place to enjoy dinner, and they offer a taste of the finest Asian cuisine.

One of the only negative things that I would say about Jonesboro is that the shopping is very limited. Overall, I would say that Jonesboro, Arkansas is a nice area to call home.

Overall Experience: Arkansas State University is a wonderfully diverse and fascinating school. Actually, I love attending the school because they recognize and appreciate students of all ages and backgrounds. I am a non-traditional full time student, single mom, and I am currenty working a full time job but Arkansas State "has an app for that too". It is a struggle to reach for a goal, no matter who you are or how old you may be, but the staff at Arkansas State University always go out of their way to help you and guide you to a greater path and to me that make my university extremely unique. I am proud to say I attend this wonderful school and when people ask I tell them, "my indian name is red wolf".

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Academic Quality at ASU – I have not yet taken many major courses, having just finished my freshman year of college. I can say, however, that the workload for freshman students can sometimes be large, with multiple large assignments going on at the same time, and I do not recommend taking maximum hours unless it is completely necessary.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing at ASU – The freshman dorms at ASU are nothing to really get ecstatic about, but they are, however, not too small and are well-kept enough to live in and still enjoy staying on campus. The upperclassmen options are better, and have much more quality to them.

Campus Strictness: Campus rules are enforced, and you will be punished if you break any of them and it is found out. If anyone wants to attempt any sort of behavior the police force would definitely look down upon, they would have to do it with a large amount of secrecy.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Personally, I've never had a problem with parking at ASU. I am always able to find a spot wherever it is I have to go on campus.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Dean B. Ellis Library – The Dean B. Ellis Library is an excellent facility with a great collection encompassing a variety of subjects.

Overall Experience: No to this college – Please say NO to this college. I have been in this college for 2 years and believe me the college is all about money. International admission sucks. They are not at all cooperative. They say something and do something. They will keep mailing you for donations but when it comes to important mails, they are not obliged to do so. I have seen huge bunch of students taking transfer from this college and I will also never recommend this college to anyone.

Overall Experience: Please No to this college – I have been with Arkanasas College since 2 years. Please say NO to this college. The college is all about money. International admissions sucks. They are not at all cooperative. They say something and do something. I have seen a huge bunch of students taking transfer from Arkansas State University as they are terribly upset. If you are in be ready to take the consequences.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Online Classes Great – The availability of online Masters classes is great! The Academic Partnership program is awesome.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: ASU Very Safe. At ASU there are rarely any crimes. Anywhere you go on campus you are always offered a police escort no matter the day or the time. Every certain amount of feet there are "police poles" with blue lights if you are in danger or scared press the button on there and there will be a campus cop there faster than you can blink. Every campus cop I have met is very friendly and willing to help you with anything. Anywhere I go on campus I feel more than safe, there is always security on campus even at three or four in the morning.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Computer Labs at ASU...Yay or Nay? At Arkansas State University I would have to say the computer labs are yay. In every building on campus at ASU there is a computer lab inside with printers. They are very easy to get to. All of them can print. Majority require your own paper, but that is not hard to get. Sometimes you just may forget to grab some extra paper. The network I would have to say is great. I have never had problems with it until I was in the dorm. The network in the dorms was horrible, but I have not had trouble out of any other computer lab on campus. The speed and wireless access is great as well. Not slow, probably a little above average. I have a printer and a computer at my household, but it doesn't always work the way I need it to, but I know I can always depend on ASU's computers and printers, they never fail me! Yet, anyways... knock on wood!

Off-Campus Dining: Awesome Experience Wherever You Go – Jonesboro has a variety of dining options. They have plenty near the campus and in the middle of town, and of coarse you can't forget downtown. Every dining option you come across they have reasonable prices, some better than others. You know that you can always eat somewhere under $10 dollars! The dining options here have great service! They are eager to serve you and want you to have the best experience. Jonesboro is a very supportive town, majority of the dining options in Jonesboro gives a student discount for college students. They know us college students don't have just a ton of money so they try to help out as much as possible. You will always get so much food! You almost feel like you get more than what you paid for which in a thumbs up in my book! I would recommend any dining places that are downtown. Those are my favorite. They have a great atmosphere and excellent food! I would check out Godsey's, Creegans, or Omar's!

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Not Helpful – My experience with finicial aid is dreadful. Anytime I recive emails from them or have to go meet with them I always dread. One because they don't act like they are willing to help you. They act like they are there for the paycheck and that is it. It seems like they care less if you are helped or not. Two, they never know the answer to any question you have. They either have you wait forever or send you all over campus. Finally, they never get back with you like they say they will. They will say they will keep in touch with you when you are the ones who has to keep in touch with them.

3 College Student

Transportation: Walking Is Best Opinion – On campus students walk from class to class. If you need go off you can call a taxi, but most students have their own car or ride with friends.

3 College Student

Weather: Hot in the Summer – Winter here is not that bad. It gets cold but there is very little snow in this area. The only thing is you might get some ice. Now the summers are unbearable, it starts as early as May with the heat. You want to make sure that your air conditioner works.

3 College Student

Facilities: Small College but Large College Opportunities – This is considered a small college but it offers everything that a large college can. The professors on the whole really want the students to achieve all their goals.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Older Dorms for Freshmen – The dorms are really small and do not offer a good study environment for students. They need updating and refurnished. The dorms for the upper classmen are small but you get your own bedroom.

2 College Junior

Majors: Lacking a Lot of Important Programs – While the cost is very low, so is the value of the program. Most of the classes are cursory at best and will not prepare you for a career in Computer Graphics unless you are willing to put in extra time to learn on your own, you will probably not succeed in the field.

2 College Junior

Majors: Non- Paying Internships – As far as I know, none of the internships, including this one were for pay. The assignments are interesting and can give a student some experience for their field, but there were no interviews. Candidates were chosen on the basis of portfolios submitted. One was even chosen and had to use software she had not even taken a course for yet. Most of the internships that were offered began after the semester started and were not included with grades.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Better and Better – Each year I have been a REDWOLF I have grown founder and founder of the athletic programs. We have a top notch rugby program which is like second in the nation I think. Our football team just got a fantastic new head football coach Gus Malzhoun. Our band program supports all of them with great pride and honor. I am proud to say I am a RedWolf

5 College Junior

Computers: Each building has its own computer lab with printers and then the library has a large computer lab on the first floor with multiple smaller ones on all of the other floors.
