3 College Student

Campus Quality: Armstrong is a small campus, so there is a community feel among the students. With it conveniently located across the street from Savannah mall, as well as next door to publix, walMart, and Kroger, a student doesn't have to go far to get what they need and want.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: Savannah is famous for its main attraction River Street , but it's a one time attraction . Once you've done it once, maybe twice, then it's no longer fun . The same with the mall and the beach. Savannah is a pretty small town comparatively, and rather boring. There's never anything exciting going on aside from college parties which also eventually get boring.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There's a wide variety of students to look at and interact with at this school . You'll see all of your typical groups from the jocks and the preppys to the populars to the nerds and so on and so forth . You're bound to find someone to fit in with .

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There's no football team . That automatically takes away a whole letter grade . The boys basketball team sucks . There record is embarrassing . The girls basketball team is decent . The only thing that saves this school is volleyball, which the games are very fun to go to, and apparently our soccer and baseball teams are A1 as well .

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Even though AASU campus is supposed to be "dry" it is far from it. Many students can get their hands on drinks pretty easily when having the right connections. Drugs aren't hard to find either, you can usually ask a person who smokes if they have anything else and 8/10 times they do.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: My major is mechanical engineering, and the best thing about the engineering program at Armstrong is that after you finish 2 years of curriculum at Armstrong, you transfer to Georgia Tech and get your bachelor's from there. The workload is tough but that is due to the professors seeing the need to prepare for Georgia Tech, and they are doing a good job of that. The flaw in this program is that since engineering is not the most sought after major at the school, the time slots for engineering classes are not flexible at all, and as an older student with varying needs outside of school, flexibility counts for a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are very knowledgeable at Armstrong. They are also willing to help and most will give you one on one time outside of class if you need it. The curriculum is diverse, and the workload is about average, at least for my demanding major. The only real negative note is that sometimes availability of courses is slim, because classes fill up almost instantly when registration starts, and the time slots for these classes are not very flexible either. Plan on going to class from 7AM to 3PM. Having a day job is impossible.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: They are to strict about parking when they should
be dealing with other real problems around
campus like tobacco, alcohol, and drug use.

4 College Senior

Academics: The school really expose us to do the things we should do once professionals which help us to develop our skills

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Green zones are excellent and library is ease to use

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Facilities are good but it is expensive for students

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Professors are knowledgeable and they are so kind, I do not feel the pressure I used to feel in my last schools which helps me to relax and get better grades.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is ok. but it's still lunchroom food so people get sick of it after a while.

3 College Freshman

Parking: It's ok. The freshman parking is pretty far from the dorms. For those who dont live on campus and drive to school parking can vary from good to bad. depends on what time you get here.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: Limited variety and only one dining hall. We have quiznos and WOW but those aren't on our meal plans. We now have the patio, but it has a limited meal plan menu and times. Things in the pantry are also not on our meal plan.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Great weather almost all the time. It will be December and I would still be wearing shorts. Granted I am use to the warm weather, when it does get chilly, I am freezing. We do have bipolar weather. What I mean by that is that it will be in the 70s today, but then two days later, it will be in the 40s. But the classes, parking lots, and dorms are a maximum of 10 minute walk, not even.

4 College Junior

Weather: It stays fairly warm in Savannah. The winters are not bad. Spring is a bit of a bother because of the gnats. They bite! Summer is perfect beach weather.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Even though AASU is located in Savannah which is a big city, there are few options for young people. Unless you find a niche restaurant, cafe or bar. The town is usually full of tourist from around the world looking at the historical aspect of Savannah. Downtown Savannah requires that you be over 21 to most places after 9PM. Tybee Island is only 20min drive east and is a good place to relax on the beach.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Many apartments available but they're very expensive for college students.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There is public transportation that stops right next to our school and runs throughout the area, but I do not use this, and most people I know do not.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I think that the classes offered at the Liberty campus serve their purpose as strictly core curriculum, but you are required to transfer to the main campus for any of your actual degree classes. Most of the professors are enjoyable socially, but I don't think many of the educators can be considered extremely professional. One Professor D. Pendar, has exceeded my expectations this semester and even though there is a lot of work in his course, he truly a educated in the topic of western civilization. The registration process at the Liberty Center is a bit muddled up. I don't feel like they offer enough class times, and I've had many class schedule time conflicts in the first two semesters at this campus. There really aren't any special study options for students, even though there is a "student success center". Your professors tell you that you can come to them for extra help on assignments, and then you'll have some professors that don't even offer to help you in the student success center, and basically tell you that it is "up to you to form individual study groups with fellow classmates".

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I think that Armstrong could make things a lot easier with their financial aid administration. When I went to my orientation before my first semester began, they threw parents and students into a room with four or five financial aid office members, made them wait quite some time before they were helped / asked questions, and then rushed through the process. When financial aid members come to visit the smaller liberty campus in Hinesville, Georgia, they never give me a straight answer. I asked a woman that came in during my registration for classes during the Spring / Summer semesters, what my total financial aid would be using my HOPE scholarship during the Spring / Summer, and all she could say was "I am not sure, I know that HOPE is still based off of the 2010 rule so you would have to research it yourself to get an approximate answer." Seriously!? I wouldn't have wasted my time trying to get an appointment set up with any of them if I knew that was the answer they were going to give me. Also I feel that the financial aid office doesn't provide adequate information on the scholarship's offered at the university, nor do they provide any type of information about legitimate websites students can use to find scholarships for themselves.

3 College Freshman

Parking: At the liberty campus, I feel that they should extend their parking spaces more with the incoming students. Whenever I visit the main campus, I feel that unless you're a faculty member or wake up at 5 AM to get a parking space, you're go probably going to have to search for a minuet, or finally just give up and end up parking in the middle / back rows.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I think that Armstrong offers good internships for their health major students, but it is a little more difficult trying to find internships for students outside of that criteria, such as journalism majors or art majors.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I don't see any students ever getting away with doing drugs
