College Junior

Campus Strictness: Campus Police – The campus police are pretty strict but it is a good thing. They watch for drinking and driving and underage drinking. They also alert or the campus alerts everyone via text (if you are signed up for this) when an incident occurs.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Library Comes in Handy – I utilize the library very often. It is a quiet place where I can study or obtain the neccessary information I need for my studies. The campus has everything you can ask for.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Growing Community – Jonesboro is steadily growing. We have new resturants and businesses opening up everyday. The campus enrollment is increasing as well. The community is generally safe but like any other area, there is crime. However, I always feel safe and it never prevents me from doing anything. There are plenty of attractions to entertain anyone. I love the school and town. I have made many friends that I will have for the rest of my life.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Clubs Are Overrated – The clubs just have a bunch of poorly dressed girls and guys who want to be with those girls. The house parties are way more fun and social.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Guys Are Alright. You are lucky if you find a guy who isn't into partying and drinking. Most are big into the girls who don't do very classy things.

Transportation: Walking Is Your Best Bet – Its pointless to try and get a parking spot next to your classes. Everything is mostly in walking distance.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Average City – Jonesboro is an average sized city its not much to do but students make the best of what we do have out there.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Improving but Boring! The athletic teams are pretty good but the games can be very boring. Very few school traditions and average to low attendance.

2 College Senior

Academics: Subpar and Mediocre – Most teachers are not very professional, difficult or knowledgeable. A lot of repetitive gen-ed classes and unnecessary requirements.

2 College Junior

Facilities: Nothing Really to Set ASU Apart – Can't really offer anything to tell you that sets the campus apart from any others.

3 College Junior

Weather: No Class When It Is Snowing – There is no on-campus housing and many students have to travel some very windy curvy roads so classes are cancelled if it snows.

1 College Junior

Athletics: Don't come to ASU Mountain Home is you are expecting to participate in college sports. There are none. There are some activities sponsored by students but that is about it.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: You pretty much have to blunder your way through financial aid here. There is little to no communication from the financial aid office and you stand a good chance of not getting what you need unless you are persistent in pursuing what you need and calling them constantly. It can be very frustrating. They tell you- we just need this- then guess what?! you need tow other papers next time! They should have a checklist to hand out to students so they know what is required and when.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Casual Campus – Everyone seems comfortable at campus. There are a lot of non-traditional students and they are comfortable with the younger students even though there is not a lot of mixing socially.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at ASU Mountain Home even when attending night classes. There is a good presence from campus security and the parking lot and campus are well-lit.

2 College Junior

Majors: Interesting Computer Graphics Program – The program is interesting but really only glosses over what you need to learn Computer Graphics and Web Design. if you are looking for an in-depth program- this is not the program for you. Many of the courses are on-line, so if you are not a self-starter- this is also not a program that will work for you.

1 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Lousy Grading Standard – ASU has a lousy grading standard. If you have a B it is graded as a 3.0- no matter if it is actually a 3.9. A C is a 2.0, etc. This means that a C can bring your GPA way down and lose an academic scholarship for you, even if your GPA is actually what is needed to keep that scholarship.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Because ASU Mountain Home is in a small community, the diversity of race is little to none. Age diversity with many non-traditionals students is plentiful but the college fails to provide services for those students. Many of the students attend with Pell grants because of low income and many more with scholarships. The college is also doing those students a disservice because thier grading system is simplistic- a B is a 3.0 regardless and many students are losing scholarships as a result. It may be the reason there is such a high dropout rate.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different races and differences among sexual orientation at ASU and they are all welcome. There is even a club for African Americans and a club called GSA, Gay-Straight Alliance. There are also alot of international students.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: There are computer labs in my residence hall and there is a library that has alot of computers.The labs in the residence hall usually have people in them who are on facebook and things since they do not have there own computers. So I would recommend going to the library.They do have printers in there you can use too. When you print at the library it is free unless you print multiple copies of the same document. The wireless internet is usually pretty fast, but sometimes it goes down for a little while. However, there are places in the dorm rooms to plug an ethernet cord into a laptop. It is so much easier to have your own computer.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Plenty to Choose from – There are plenty of Greeks to choose from and there are the campus favorites and the campus hated. The frats are well known for throwing amazing parties which isn't a social status.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Some Crime – The crime that is on campus is mostly petty things like smoking in the rooms or a fight, there so far hasn't been anything very major.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Mostly Chain Resturants – The campus has restaurants like McDonald's, Hardees, Chic-Fil-A and like so.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The Process Is Long – the process to getting financial aid is easy if you dont mind filling out a zillion pages of paper work. Make sure you fill out everything by the due date or else it will be hard for you to get the financial aid you need. If ever you have questions or concerns make sure you stay in touch with the office. They are very helpful.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not the Best Place to Live – The freshman dorms at ASU are nasty. I feel like they are not well kept up and are always junky. The upperclassman dorms are a little better but not much. As soon as I get enough money to move off campus, I will.
