3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs are not visible but that doesn't mean the are not around if you a really looking for them.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Students really don't have many options that are within a reasonable price range.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Jonesboro is a vibrant town full of local activities.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: No matter where you look, there is always a place to eat. There are dozens of fast food places for something quick and easy, but if you're looking for a sit down restaurant, you'll find plenty of those too. Restaurants like Godsey's, Omar's, and other very nice restaurants give the town a lot of variety. Whether it's Oriental cuisine, Mexican food, or Italian food, we will have an option for whatever you desire.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: There are several apartments around the area. When divided up by the number of months living in on-campus housing, the price for off campus housing is about the same. If you're lucky, some places are cheaper than on campus housing, but most are about the same as on campus. There are many around the campus, but others scattered around town in case you don't want to see the campus from your front door.

5 College Senior

Administration: The campus is strict, but fair. No smoking is allowed on campus due to the Clean Air Act. Alcohol is not permitted either, as well as drugs. Doors to the Quads or other residential halls cannot be propped open, or an alarm will sound and you will get in trouble. Also, parking is very stern. If you have a permit, park where you're only permitted during the day, or you will get a parking ticket out of this world.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Jonesboro has a little bit of something for everybody. For party goers, Downtown Main Street has plenty of bars and pubs. For a walk through nature, Craighead Forest Park has a beautiful view across the lake.

2 College Senior

Administration: the school is very strict on maintaining a good gpa. If your gpa dips, you are placed o academic probation.

4 College Junior

Academics: I came to ASU for the civil engineering program. the campus is great and everything else is too. parts of the town are not nice and trashy.

3 College Junior

Academics: I am in the engineering college. The workload is less than what i expected compared to other schools I have been to. I am very satisfied with everything so far except for the lack of internship/job opportunities.

3 College Senior

Academics: Could use more diversity. Mainly education and medical. A bit boring.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: While I never went to any college parties, and the bar/club scene was for the 21+, nightlife on campus was extremely fun. My friends and I would hang out in our dorm lobby every night, listen to some music and play pool and board games. It was a blast!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food isn't bad, but the hours aren't great. I cannot express how many times I was up late studying when the urge to snack hit me. The cafe closed at 9 every night, except on the weekends, which was 7.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The amenities, social atmosphere, and convenience of on campus living are excellent. The dorm rooms are unbearably hot in the summer and freezing in the winter. The temperature is really the only thing to complain about.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation is fairly good at ASU. To get to classes and around campus, a car is more of an inconvenience than a help. There are also shuttle buses that can transport students who live in surrounding areas to campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It is humid, but we get very little snow, and our climate is moderate almost til late October early November. We do see an occasional severe thunderstorm and tornadic activity, but they usually do very little damage!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Over the years Jonesboro has attracted a wide variety of resturants. They have alot of Mexican resturants and a Irish Pub. They are great!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The people at ASU seem to be into what is is hip and cool. There is a very diverse ethnic back ground also.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: It is raining all the time, bad weather with tornadoes, freezing, cold and wet and there are large distances between parking areas and academic buildings. The weather is very unpredictable. Summers are extremely hot with temps in the nineties and one-hundred degrees.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: most people just go to the clubs unless there is a frat party or something

1 College Senior

Transportation: i have never seen a public transportation on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The few good residence halls/apartments fill up so quickly and are not based on seniority.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are not enough computer labs to accommodate the number of students needing them. Also, they charge us for printing and I feel that's unfair.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are few people that I find to be extraordinary. A lot of plain janes who grew up in Jonesboro who simply didn't want to branch out and leave home so they attended ASU.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Football is huge at ASU, but hardly any of the student body supports any other sport. Also, even with an organized club team with fans and a winning record, we were unable to get financial support from ASU to fund our club softball team affiliated with the school.
