4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have never seen anyone drinking are using drugs while walking on campus. I do not live on campus, so the drug scene may different in the apartments. The school is a drug-free campus and seems to enforce it very well.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: So far everything about my experience at AASU has been very enjoyable. All of my teacher's have been very helpful and has really seemed to be interested in the subjects they were teaching. The grounds are well kept and the police are always driving around so I feel safe. It is a school I would recommend.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The city transit runs all day and night and there are taxis available however outside of that you may need your own transportation for traveling out of the city of Savannah. But be careful...there are a lot of traffic in Savannah.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Processing for Financial Aid is fairly straight forward, especially if you know what your doing. People in the Financial Aid Office is very nice and helpful. It is best to speak in person with the F.A officers early and as often as possible.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Savannah is a good little city. It is a historic area with lots to do such as haunted tours, historic tours, dinning and night clubs. There are plenty of beaches to go to. The city itself schedules plenty of cultural events that you can attend to as well. People down here are very friendly. It is very a very diverse city due to the fact that there is a military base there.

Scholarships: Financial Aid tries to assist with their best intentions.

College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is great! It is located on Abercorn St. where there are nearby restaurants, the mall, and Wal Mart.

College Sophomore

Computers: The computer that I seen during the tour of the campus were up-to-date by appearance. There computer software programs were Apple and Windows. The tour guide explain Pirate bucks that I'm allowed to use each term for printing purposes.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: it is not much to choose from but there is a great variety.

5 College Senior

Computers: we just got new computers in another building for more help

Parking: Parking can be really bad in the morning, but after 4:30 pm faculty spaces are available for students. You don't really need a car when you live on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Armstrong is a dry campus, and just recently a smoke free campus too. There are no designated areas to smoke, but if there are not a lot of people around there usually is no problem.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: The dining hall is pretty good, like all schools it gets old after a while but tolerable. There are two other places where you can eat on campus but those don't come out of your meal plan. Safest thing to do is going to the grocery store that's next to the school, or going to the small restaurants that are across the street when you just want something different.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Armstrong's IT department needs a major modification. A big request from students is the need for more hands on experience where students actually learn the skills employers are asking for. It gets frustrating at times but a good idea is getting to know your professor and requesting specific methods or concepts that you would like them to teach in class.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Armstrong has a beautiful campus full of greenery. You will always find a garden where you can just sit and admire the surroundings. The student union and the library are other places where students like to spend their time studying or just hanging out.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Registration at Armstrong is very easy and fast. The professors are great, all of them will offer you extra help if you need it. There are multiple labs for students that need specific help, such as a math lab and a writing center. Additionally, the librarians are always very helpful and eager to aid a student in need.

Campus Housing: Living at Armstrong is very convenient. Students have to stay at the freshman dorms their first year, which I've heard is like living with your parents, and since there is only one kitchen for the entire building you always have to eat at the cafeteria which gets old after a while. On the other hand, all other dorms are very spacious and like apartments. Best options depend on the person. If you don't want to share a bathroom I recommend University Terrace II and University Crossings (which is the most private and spacious). If you would like to be closer to the school and where more activity is present I would recommend Compass Point.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Speaking in terms of multiple opinions, the financial aid process was tedious and frustrating. One really needs to be constantly aware of how things are moving with the paperwork.

3 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: Armstrong is a growing school so I expect it to have more attention and support in the future, especially since there are always new project every year to build new facilities.
When it comes to academic programs, just know that in certain areas of study you will not necessarily learn exactly what your employer needs, specifically when you are looking at technology jobs. You will learn from your professors but expect to rely on your own curiosity and personal projects to impress employers. Career oriented opportunities are prevalent, you just have to be proactive to find them.

Off-Campus Dining: Nearby the school is a mall, Walmart, Kroger and a few restaurants. The mall has great food choices but that is before the mall closes. Walmart and Kroger(a grocery store) are great options for stocking up or cooking for yourself. Other restaurants are mostly fast food places who do not have 24 -hour lobby service and REQUIRE you to have or be in a car to place an order.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Unlike Savannah State University, Armstrong students do not ride public transportation for free. When we do wait on the city bus, it almost seems forever until the bus comes. The bus routes are also confusing, but you can learn the routes quickly.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: As a freshman I did not have a car to park. However, when I carpooled, it was insane. If you live off campus, it would be best to get there early unless you would like to walk a further distance. The parking tickets are outrageous and unnecessary. Some rules are unnecessary as well and I understand "school safety" but they are too strict. The campus also needs to expand the parking lot but instead seem to be using money in other areas.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food at Armstrong has various choices to eat and greatly cater to a "healthy diet" and vegetarian audience. However, it would be greatly appreciated if more choices became available. The school has done a tremendous job catering to the "healthy" aspect but some college students, like myself, would not mind to "pig out" once in a while. The food is not the only thing that affects my opinion of out cafeteria. Not only is the food under-cooked and cold at times, but the workers and dishes are not up to par either. The dishes and forks are often somewhat clean but also contain stains or particles of food. It is almost as if we, the students, should bring our own silverware or switch to plastics. Overall, the food is decent and it is not too bad when hungry and in need of a quick "somewhat" hot meal.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of apartments in Savannah that are close to the campus. However, it can be a little expensive if you do not have a roommate.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There are a large variety of different races and religions on Armstrong's Campus. There are people from Germany, Africa, Jamaica and many other places. There is a very balanced population. Racism has not been an issue in my experience. Everyone in my classes have gotten along despite race or religion.
