Academics: The workload really depends on how much you are willing to take on. Some students only take two classes while others always take six. The school is not very tough. Most students work full-time and professors are willing to work with you to help with problems.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel incredibly safe on campus. There is a security guard that regularly does rounds of the campus. Also the school is situated across the street from the city's police department. I have never seen or heard of anyone being assaulted on campus. I have never seen or heard of anyone's property being stolen or tampered with.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: There are no dorms or school housing. If you go to school here, you have to find your own housing. There are many affordable and safe apartments nearby. Most students live at home.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many family owned restaurants that have been here for many years. One such place is Dub's burgers. If you want a large, greasy burger this is the place for you. There are also several famous BBQ places such as Lawlers, Southern Hickory, and 306 BBQ. Also if you are feeling in the fish mood, there is of course the Catfish Cabin.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls at Athens is very diverse. There are probably a pretty equal guy to girl ratio. But the ages range quite a bit. Because of this there is not a "typical" look or attitude at the campus. Things are pretty casual here. Most people get along well and it is fairly easy to make friends.

3 College Senior

Local Area: There is a thriving historic downtown area. There are a lot of boutique type stores and a lot of family owned restaurants. There are many activities that the town puts on such as Toga on the Square and Fiddlers Convention. It is a very safe town with an extremely low crime rate. The locals are very involved with Athens State and many locals are alumni themselves.

4 College Senior

Majors: You are usually matched to an internship that closely follows your major. In the internship you are given a specific project to work on. I got paid quite well in mine for my level of experience. The time commitment was not bad. Continuously I was told that school came first and they would plan my work schedule around my class schedule. Athens has a career center on campus that is very good. They have a list of internships and co-ops that you can apply from that correlates with your major.

4 College Senior

Majors: The process was fairly easy. When I transferred I told them what I wanted my major to be and they reviewed my transcripts and approved my major choice. I didn't have any problems getting in. The most unusual thing about Athens is that you have to be a transfer student, they are not a four year college. You have to have at least 64 credits to even be accepted.

Scholarships: Hard to find any information about financial aid. The financial aide staff is not very helpful.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Really good, homemade food. The only problem is it is very slow.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: The Fiddlers Convention is a spectacular event! Fiddlers from all over the state come out and showcase their talent. Great vendors and plenty of delicious food are also found at this event.

Off-Campus Dining: The Off-Campus Dining consists of a wide variety of chain restaurants and fast food as well as local diners

4 College Senior

Scholarships: The Financial Aid department at Athens State is well organized and highly effective in assisting students. The main thing for students is to make sure you have all of your information to the financial aid office on time.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You will mainly see chain restaurants. Yes they are affordable and give great discounts but I believe we need more options.
