5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drug Scene – As far as I've noticed, there isn't a drug scene at Athens State. Athens State is an upper level 2 year university. the majority of the students that are enrolled there are finishing their degrees who also have full-time jobs and families.

1 College Senior

Campus Dining: There isn't much of a "campus dining" at ASU. The campus dining area is mainly a coffee shop. There are plenty of restaurants around campus to grab something to eat.

5 College Junior

Parking: Parking is wonderful at Athens State. I have never had to park and walk a great distance to get to my class.

5 College Senior

Weather: Not at All – The weather does no affect my campus experience at all. I go to class when scheduled and i stay home when they call off class.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Ok but None to Close – I believe that the restuarants close to Athens State are ok but they are not within walking distance. McDonalds and Lawlers are the closest.

5 College Senior

Campus Dining: I love the food in the cafe. I go there almost every day to get some sort of coffee or hot chocolate.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Choices – There are lots of choices for off campus dining in Athens. All the regular chains such as Chik Fil A, Ruby Tuesdays, Logan's, Applebees, etc. are located near the interstate. Other top notch restaurants include Clark's (a bit pricy), Burrito Express (great value & excellent food), Wildwood Deli (top notch Reuben), Catfish Cabin (great place for seafood).

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Health & Safety – I've never felt unsafe on the Athens State campus. I've attended classes that didn't get over till nearly 10 PM & have never worried about walking to my car, etc. Security on the campus is exceptional.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Where to Live – There are several apartment buildings around Athens State. Most are with in walking distance so a student would not have to have the added expence of a car. I am not sure as to how the University aids students in finding a place to live. I am married with children and was already settled when I started.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Atmosphere Around the School – Doing the time I visist to get my ID picture take it was nice and friendly. I am a student on line course

1 College Junior

Greek Life: Athens has no greek life. Which I wish was differnt. I would have rushed if we would have had greek representation on campus.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Night Life Living – Athens is more of a family town rather than a "party town." Most of the students who attend our school are off-campus commutors. There are several house parties throughout the city though.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I personally like our off campus dining options. It has all of the local fast food places most college students like, at a decent price. Plus, the few added home-town sit down places that will blow your taste buds away.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Classroom Buildings – The classroom buildings are very nice and up to date. The staff and students take very good care of the buildings.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather is not usually a major problem in Athens, but on the occasion that there is stormy or threatening weather, news alerst are sent via text, e-mail and phone so students are notified of school delays or closures.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Camups Houseing – I do not live in the area, and do most of my classes via internet or blended options. When traveling to Athens for school related activities, I go straight to the campus, and have not checked out local housing (dorms, apartments, etc.).

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Computers and computer lab are available, as well as wi-fi connections for hand held devices. Good reliability and speed, but areas where speed is slower.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Athens is a small town just 30 minuets from hunstville. Down town is a squair where you may ring old country stores. We have a movie theater, Walmart, Piggly Wiggly, Logans, Applebees, and other resteraunts. The towns folk love Athens State.

3 College Junior

Weather: one day rain and storms the next sunny , one day Cold the next Sun out and shinning.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Smooth Sailing – I recieved just a enough financial aide for me to be less stressful about school. The process was actually easy. I was given the forms that need to be filled out, and once I did that, it was smooth sailing from there. The financial aide rep did the rest.

4 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus is good. No matter what time you make it, you can always expect to have a great parking spot, right next to the building you are going to.

5 College Senior

Parking: Feel safe walking to car at night, although the lighting is a little dim. I shouldn't, but I park near the security building in the warmer months and take naps in the car with the windows cracked.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Love It! Awesome professors, helpful people, southern charm all around. Graduate school so all students are serious about classroom experiences.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Elementary Ed Majors – It is advised to conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: And Then There Was None – There are no fraternities or sororities at Athens.
