2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in University Hall this past year and it was a bad experience. The bathrooms were so old and were constantly growing mold and never looked clean. I think the school could do some major renovations. Also, there is not enough on campus housing for everyone and a lot of people have to rent off campus, which is unfortunate because the bulk of scholarships given by the school include money for housing.

Greek Life: A lot of students are involved in Greek life and contribute a lot to the campus through community service, events, and most require an above average GPA, so it helps with the school in that area.

Athletics: I am not involved in athletics on campus, however football has nice facilities such as the field and the training areas. The student body is somewhat spirited. I feel like football overshadows all of the other sports on campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: College is definitely different than high school. I feel like it is challenging and I learn a lot. However, teachers are tougher and seem to not care about their students.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: This is a very safe community to be apart of.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel that this is a great school with a great Criminology program. I feel that I have learned many things in my college experience that will better help me to begin a career in Criminal Justice after graduating.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had great classes and not so great classes; the class sizes are usually small enough, especially when you get to upper level classes. Most professors do try to teach as well as they can, but there are also several professors who couldn't care less about the students they teach and are only teaching because they are paid to do it. There are plenty of class options, so it makes it easier to take classes for fun and makes it easier to create a schedule that accomodates work and other extra activities.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There is a solid alumni network, and there are always employers looking to recruit graduates. Career services is very helpful and they are continuously trying to find new ways to help students get connected with possible employers.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I generally always feel safe on campus, I am just also aware that I cannot always control the actions of others so I have to be cautious in situations where alcohol is involved or where there are a lot of people I don't know.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: For the most part it is very convenient to live on campus; sometimes it is difficult to work with residence life, but most of the residence halls are well kept up and there really isn't anywhere on campus that people really wouldn't want to live.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Being a part of Greek life is beneficial for a number of reasons, but it isn't too exclusive. Our Greek organizations make a point to involve members of non-Greek organizations in activities and are always open to getting to know people outside of their organizations. There will always be people who see Greek life negatively because of the societal stereotypes, but our Greek organizations actively try to break those stereotypes regularly.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The student body is very connected for the most part; it is easy to get involved and a lot of faculty genuinely do care and try to help students out when in need.

4 College Senior

Athletics: We have a good football program, our volleyball team and basketball teams as well as football were all conference champions. We have great fan support.

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek Life because I am not involved, but it seems to be great here.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym is open to all students and is filled with top of the line equipment. It is amazing.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is great. We have amazing teachers and students that push everyone to do their very best.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: At the beginning of each term ASU hosts a series of safety presentations including sexual assault and active shooter presentations that not only teaches students how to respond to each of these scenarios, but informs the students about statistics concerning them and provides information on how to avoid these types of situations. They also hand out key chain cards with emergency numbers printed on them, and not only that, but ASU has a type of 911 stand placed all over campus that is always easily recognized by the bright blue light on top of it where you can just push a button to be directly connected to emergency services. ASU also provides a series of self defense classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everywhere you go you'll find professors that make you ask yourself, "How are they a teacher?", and don't get me wrong I've encountered one or two myself, but that's nothing compared to the experience you get when you get professors that genuinely care and invest in their students. I had a history professor my first semester that sometimes shops at the grocery store I work at and every time he sees me he greets me and asks how school is going. I feel like I have formed some kind of bond with most of my present and past professors, and that lets me know that this isn't a school that is just pumping me through the system. Arkansas State University cares about its students excellence and encourages, recognizes, and rewards success.

Campus Housing: I only have two complaints about dorm life. I'm a freshman this year living on the ground floor of University Hall, the freshman all girls dorm, so when signing up for next year's living I applied for the Northpark Quads, which is the sophomore and up housing. I was given a time slot to sign up for a room, but when my time came the Quads were completely full, so I was put in overflow housing, which includes only the 10th and 11th floor of Kays, the coed dorm. Also my other very minor complaint is how "quiet hours" which are supposed to be from 10pm to 10am are not enforced and sometimes I'll be woken up by loud groups in the lobby or hallway or rooms around me. Other than that I adore dorm life! I got a room to myself this year so it's a quiet place to do my homework, it's close to my classes and the caf, and it gives me a sense of independence and learning to live on my own!

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life being a non-Greek myself, but I do have a couple friends on campus and even a suite mate who are Greeks and they are just like everyone else on campus! I see Greek girls of all different size, race, appearance, and background around campus so it looks like it's pretty easy to fit in. A friend of mine took me to a Delta Zeta recruitment event and right off the bat everyone was super friendly, and I was told by the recruitment president that I would have gotten a bid had I been able to afford the monthly payment of being in the sorority, so the financial side of it was my only problem. I don't know about the fraternities, but the sororities on campus each have a charity of their choosing that they do fundraisers for throughout the year, so it's not all about the parties, at the core it's for a good cause.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The stadium at ASU was upgraded just in the past couple years and had a new mega-screen installed and just this year a new indoors practice center was built for athletics. Other than that I can't say too much because I've only attended a couple events, but I can't complain and every event I attended was very enjoyable!
