Armstrong Atlantic State University is one the best colleges to attend in the Coastal Empire. The professors are passionate about their students. They invest in their education and do what they an to ensure you grasp the information and can apply it. The staff even host job fairs to get you connected with employers. Their are a variety of Greek and non-Greek clubs/organizations and the students are focused on their education so there is little room for distraction here. I strongly encourage you to apply and attend. The student body is diverse, there are tons of opportunities to get involved in the community and I guarantee you will meet some of the best people in the world!

I absolutely loved my first year as a college student at Armstrong State University. I came to Savannah knowing one or two people at most, and I left it know at least one hundred people. It was fairly easy making friends, and I made some good, hardworking friends who cared about their education and did not waste their time partying every weekend. My favorite experiences had to have been the times I would go play soccer in the intramural fields. If I could do it all over again, I would!

I recently attended Armstrong's Orientation and Registration ceremony, more commonly known as Navigate. It was pretty nice. When I first got there I picked up a packet of information that they had set up for all of the student's attending. In the packet there was a "Passport". It allows you to get either a hole punch or a stamp from all of the different tables around the building. There was a raffle going on for all of the people that got their entire "passport" stamped and hole punched. The winner's were chosen during the lunch that they provide you with around 11am. Also in the packet was a schedule that you would use later on during the day to write your class schedule on. There was also a checklist that you give to the people that you visit when you go into the room behind the table that your assigned packet was located by. If you plan on attending AASU in the fall, I recommend that you go ahead and sign up for Navigate. Otherwise, you might not be able to get into the classes that you want to. They fill up fast! After lunch you and your parents (or whoever came with you) will split up for the remainder of the day. You'll see what happens after that when you go. Umm I think that about covers the "basics" of Navigate (:
