My overall experience at Adams State is pretty good. Being that I haven't been here very long and growing up in the city is very different but Adams is opening up my eyes to new things to get involved in and enjoy my time while studying for my future field. If I could do it all over I believe I would choose Adams State still because I enjoy the size of classes and I focus better when there is not much to do in town.

Adams is just a little small town school. It's not bad, it's not great. I'm going there because it's convenient location and cost wise.
