3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere at Athens State is just average. There's nothing really to stand out honestly. It's just a sleepy little town with some okay shopping and some okay eating.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial Aid went really well for me this year, all of the forms were taken care of promptly and I received my aid without any problems.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't stay in a dorm, so a review wouldn't be applicable.

College Sophomore

Computers: I don't rely on the campus' network most of the time, so other than when I absolutely have to have it I couldn't really say much about it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The availability of off campus housing is kind of sparse, the safety however is better than expected for that area. I personally don't live off-campus, but I checked in on it.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't really see the point in having a nightlife on campus, they would just impede on my studies.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: the ethical diversity of people on campus is pretty big. I have interacted with African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics etc. Everyone is pretty tolerant of one another, even if that constitutes certain groups to stay to themselves versus having a confrontation

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Being in the liberal arts, you have a pretty broad range of curriculum to choose from at an undergrad level. I think that I would enjoy it more if there weren't as many general classes, and more classes geared toward the art major.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather in Alabama is pretty temperamental, so it can be great and cool one day, stormy the next and 90 degrees after that. I would say that the weather is just 'okay'.

College Sophomore

Transportation: Since everyone uses their own cars to get where they're going, public transportation really isn't necessary

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on the ASU campus. I have not heard of any issues with safety within the past few years.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The variety of fast food options is great in Athens; however, there are not many dining restaurants available in the area. Most places do not offer special eating conditions or student discounts.

3 College Junior

Weather: North Alabama weather is highly unpredictable. Severe weather and road conditions from tornados and snow/ice storms can cause the campus to close. Within the past few years, the campus has had to close more often due to these conditions.

3 College Junior

Academics: The workload for distance learning is extreme. There are several case studies, essays, and research papers that are required from each class. This can put a large workload on students, especially if they are working full time.

3 College Junior

Majors: The student has to be proactive about every concern at ASU to receive thorough information.

3 College Junior

Majors: I enjoy distance learning, but I'm treated as just a number in this case. I chose ASU due to the convenience of completing my degree online locally. The instructors just cannot spend much time with you as an online student.

2 College Junior

Nightlife: There is not much of a nightlife in Athens, AL.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I've seen no issues with drugs or alcohol on campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I seem to always receive student loans for Spring and Fall semesters, but nothing for Summer semesters. Summer semesters are the best times for me to complete courses.

4 College Junior

Computers: The over computer availability is impressive at ASU.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is not very popular at ASU.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The campus is not extremely diverse. ASU has a variety of beliefs within the student body.

College Junior

Campus Housing: There is no housing on campus.

College Junior

Weather: I take my classes online.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: When I sent an email to split my aid into three semesters, they only split it into two. That left me in a hole for the summer semester.
