Health & Safety: Don't Worry – Campus safety and security on campus at Athens State is great! I have never witnessed any wrong doing while I am there. Also the school has multiple security guards who both walk and drive around campus making sure everyone is safe. Lastly Athens State also sends out emails and phone calls when severe weather or other things are happening.

Scholarships: The financial aid department is proactive in the processing of financial aid to students in a fast and efficient manner. The ASU website is very user friendly and well-structured so students do not get lost on the site. The financial aid process is done in a few simple steps and the electronic submission is in complete unison with the electronic processing of FAFSA. Students may view a complete status and history of financial aid activity on the ASU website.

Facilities: Professors Are Pro Student – The professors' teaching strategies are designed for students to experience real-world examples in course materials. I have found that the professors are very accessable and proactive in helping students succeed in the coursework requirements. It seems that everything in the degree programs are focused around the nurturing of students' comprehension and application of the coursework in the degree programs.

Overall Experience: It's a Good School – I like Athens State. The classes are small and there are only a few teachers per subject. It is easy to get to know your professors and what they expect. The school is small and easy to get around and parking spaces are ample.

Guys & Girls: Young as Expected. most of the students are young,18-21. I am an older student, could be their mother! Kids are very nice and polite. I am not from the south so the accents are sometimes hard to decipher.

Off-Campus Dining: Variety Dining in Downtown Athens – Students may enjoy great dining just five minutes away from the main campus of Athens State University in the heart of downtown Athens, Al. For great home made southern dining at affordable prices, a student may enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Luvici's Resturant. Clark's Resturant has a large selection of delicious sandwiches and sides. Tortillas Blanco is a casual dress Mexican resturant with a good track record of great food and service. Students enjoy the all time favorite at The Village Pizza by selecting from a wide variety of toppings.

Local Atmosphere: Small Town Feel – The best thing about athens, it still seems like a small town, that is very close to several large towns. You can be involved in a lot of different things.

Campus Dining: Lunch Is Served – To my knowledge, lunchtime is the only time that the cafeteria is used. There is a small coffee shop next to the cafeteria that is open until 6 - but food options are limited to prepackaged Little Debbie cakes or doughnuts, or something simple like those. Eating on campus in not an option if you have night classes. You'd better grab something to eat at one of the fast food places before arriving on campus, or get chips/candy bar from vending machines.

Weather: We have some rain here, and some snow from time to time. If you don't mind using an umbrella, it's perfectly fine. There aren't any covered walkways, but that's fine because it would take away from the beauty of the campus.

5 College Sophomore

Computers: Each computer on campus runs at a good speed online, there are plenty to access across campus, and there is a deal on printing. Your first hundred or so sheets are free, then they are a few cents each.

Off-Campus Dining: Outside Eateries – There are outside fast food establishments in the area. Not necessarily places for fine dining but there are a lot of fast food places.

Facilities: Inside Scoop – There isn't a whole lot for me at the school, because I live so far away. However I am a participant in the Accounting Club and I attend their meetings every meeting.

College Sophomore

Computers: I have my own laptop and have not used the computers at the university.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have not seen any use of drugs or alcohol on the campus at all. You do see smoking cigarettes, but that is to be expected at every campus.

College Junior

Nightlife: Not Familiar – I live an hour and a half away from the campus. I'm not too familiar with the night life at Athens, however, it seems vibrant and exciting from what I can see.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is amazing because it is small and you can get alot of one on one time with your professors. You are not just a number you have a name and everyone recognizes you and addresses you personally. It makes learning easier and more comfortable in a small setting. I don't feel embarrassed to ask a question if I do not understand something. Class discussions and interacting with the instructor makes learning alot more interesting and productive.

Facilities: Well Kept – Buildings are well maintained, very attractive and convenient.

Off-Campus Dining: Feeding the Mind Hard at Work – Our campus has its own cafe and coffee shop. Also there is a vast selection of fast food chains within a 2 mile radius.

5 College Junior

Computers: The labs are amazing. They are Fully equipped with the best of the best. The network is speedy and reliable whether you bring your own computer or use one on campus. I own a Mac and Athens State University has a network especially for Macs. Printing is free in some labs. The classroom computers are just as advance. The classrooms themselves are very technologically advanced with projection screens that are great for lectures, demonstrations, and presenting projects.

Overall Experience: Nice Place – Athens State is a nice place to go to college. It offers internet based classes that allow you to do your work on your time. The university is great for me since I work full time. It allows me the freedom to do school work when I am able to do so.

Local Atmosphere: Small Town/ Friendly – Athens is a suburb of Huntsville, AL. and is nice and quiet. The community friendly and laid back, anyone would agree.

2 College Senior

Nightlife: Night Life – The university is located in a small town. There is not a whole lot to do pertaining to bars. Since a large majority of students are full time employees and have families the nightlife is pretty dead.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: Our financial aid department has helped me tremendously in the past few years. They helped me during the transferring process and introduced me to several scholarship opportunities.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The facilities at Athens State are second to none. The buildings are all fairly new and the classrooms are large. The library and its resources are easily accessible. There are plenty of places to eat within a few blocks of campus. Finding a quiet place to study on campus is easy to do.
