I am a Junior Biology major here at Albany State University and I would have to say that the academics is okay. Really not that hard if you aren't majoring in a science such as biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, or nursing. Now those classes are hard. If you aren't willing to put in the time or effort then don't major in any of the sciences because it's time consuming. The other irrelevant classes towards my major such as English, Math, History, Etc; they're easy as can be! Good Luck!

Many of my peers that graduated from my program are close friends of mine. Between these students and professors I feel well equipped to handle any and everything in my future career. Any Alumni that I meet from here has always embraced me with a warm greeting and extended a helping hand in any endeavor that I wanted to pursue. Career services, though underrated, is a fantastic aid to use!
