Scholarships: Seriously, financial aid sucks. I feel like I do not get any assistance because I do not have any extreme circumstances and am often not chosen for scholarships or any type of aid through the office. They do not really help and send you 398324792 different directions so that they do not have to deal with you. They are somewhat helpful for Study Abroad though

Off-Campus Housing: DO NOT live at Sedona Ranch. It is definitely cheaper to live off campus and would highly suggest it but make sure that you find a good roommate that you are comfortable with and that you have lived with previously with little tension. Going to school and parking is awful so I would suggest getting a D parking and splurge the extra $30. The recent oil boom makes it hard to find a place so if you find a house/apartment snatch it quick!

Local Area: I like the small town atmosphere but with the city growing, crime rates are also going up. My apartment that is 7 minutes from campus got broken into and when I lived in the dorms, a homeless guy slept in our common area. The shopping downtown is wonderful but can sometimes come with hefty prices, however it is fun to just walk around. I love running downtown at the "river walk" that was just renovated and it is beautiful, but unsafe at night. Locals are always welcome to ASU students and most places give student discounts if you ask!

Administration: I feel as though ASU picks and chooses their battles. When I lived in the dorms, they were very lenient on drugs, alcohol, and visitors, but very strict on financial standing, grades, and attendance in class depending on the professor.

Academics: Professors are helpful and often are available for a one-on-one basis. Academics are satisfying, if a bit challenging.

Drug Safety: It is usually never talked about, and even if it is; no one is different to you if you partake or not. It has a very "to each his own" mentality.

Administration: Drug abuse is incredibly frowned upon and the security on campus is highly adjusted to prevent this so that it doesn't happen.

Diversity: Coming from a small town where everyone was fairly similar, the diversity of different people is a welcoming thought.

Greek Life: Greek Life isn't incredibly prominent here, but it is popular enough to hang out and meet some new friends.

Off-Campus Dining: The food varies enough so that it doesn't get tedious, but of course after a while it does tend to get a bit boring.

Athletics: Everyone keeps in relatively good shape and the facilities are well taken care of, which shows on the physical quality of the students.

Campus Housing: Pretty typical campus housing. A couple of the buildings are new and very nice.

Greek Life: Greek Life is not super popular on campus. Most of the sororities are seen as lame, and the fraternities are only known for the parties they throw. Honestly, I do not think it is worth the money to join Greek Life. There's plenty of other social gatherings available.

Off-Campus Housing: Quite a few apartment complexes throughout San Angelo, although most students choose to rent a house instead. Many options to choose from.

Health & Safety: Nothing to worry about, but it is a little frightening walking by yourself at night. The ASU Police Department recently suggested that students download a safety app, and that has helped me to feel more secure.

Transportation: Having a car on campus is pretty important. If you are not bringing a car to campus, make sure that you know someone who does, otherwise it will be pretty boring having to stay on campus all the time.

Administration: The campus isn't too strict, although parking is the one thing that they are known for. Do not park in the wrong section or you WILL get a ticket, and you are not able to get by with a warning.

Weather: Angelo State is fairly good about being reasonable when it comes to bad weather. The ASU Police Department always sends out emails to alert students of bad weather, and class is postponed or cancelled if the weather continues to worsen.

Off-Campus Dining: A variety of restaurants, especially Mexican food. There are a lot of hole-in-the-wall restaurants scattered throughout San Angelo and the quality and price is very reasonable.

Athletics: There is not a LOT of school spirit, but the games are always fun to attend. Basketballs games are typically the most spirited. The CHP (Center for Human Performance) is the gym and it is very nice. Rock climbing and four full court basketball courts, along with plenty of exercise equipment. Also, there is a disc golf course around campus.

Technology: There are three different computer labs, or at least that I know of. If all the computers are occupied, you can check out a laptop to borrow for a few hours. I always have wifi around campus. Each student receives 800 print credits per semester, which I have never completely used. Bringing a computer isn't necessary, but it would be nice to have one if you wanted to do homework in your dorm, instead of having to go to the library.

Scholarships: The process to receive financial aid is long and confusing... It was also difficult because the financial aid was not very good at clearly explaining everything. One tip I have for receiving financial aid is to make sure to stay on top of it. Regularly check your account and be proactive in making sure that you don't have any small fees or something you did not know you had to pay for.

Weather: The weather varies greatly. during the summer and into fall semester it is very hot. During this winter season it has fluctuated from being very cold to being able to run around outside with your shirt off, but then the next day a jacket is strongly recommended.

Athletics: The athletics are not very well promoted. There is almost no school spirit towards the sports. the gym is vice nice but does not accommodate for people who have a different variety of workout styles, such as cross-fitters.

Off-Campus Housing: There is a far variety of decent quality off-campus housing. Yet the prices are on the higher side, but majority are fairly close to campus and shopping centers.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Angelo State University, and San Angelo by extension, has a small, friendly feel. In addition to a standard choice of majors, ASU offers many programs throughout the semester for entertainment, and there is a club for everyone if a student does some digging. No matter what taste a student has, there will be a club of like-minded people, and overall, people are generally accepting of each other, even if they disagree with them.

The city has all the comforts of a larger city with the feel of a small town. There is very little to be left wanting when at ASU or in San Angelo. However, students that come from larger metropolitan areas may find the small size on the boring side due to minimal variety. On the flip side, students coming from rural ares are likely to love having things to do without a long drive. A few students dislike the area, and a few students love it, but overall, many are happy with the choice to come to ASU.
