3 College Sophomore

Majors: More online classes would be great for this degree to help with the working students.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Behavioral Science is my major. I plan to find a job as a social worker, with the hopes that the pay scale is enough to cover my student loans and support my family.

4 College Junior

Weather: Summers are very hot, but the other 3 seasons are great. Spring feels wonderful in Athens, Alabama, fall is beautiful when the leaves change, and winter is chilly but rarely is the weather a huge problem. The few times a year it does snow, class is normally cancelled.

Administration: I am transferring to Athens State, so I have not yet seen the authorities in action.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a great amount of financial aid, I had no problems with receiving my aid.

College Junior

Greek Life: I have not seen that much Greek Life since I am always hitting the books. Plus, I don't know if Athens State has a Greek life since I am on their center at Wallace State in Hanceville.

College Junior

Transportation: Public transportation is not offered at Athens State University. This is only because it is a small two year upper level college. Therefore, there is no buses or anything to take you from place to place. However, parking is excellent at ASU.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are people with all different backgrounds at Athens State University. However, it is not something the students focus on. We all act as family almost, and everyone gets along. I have never ran across anyone that was rude or unwilling to help others out. No one seems to point people out through race and religion. Instead, we all focus on relationships and school.

4 College Junior

Weather: It rarely snows here, so classes are never cancelled due to weather storms. When it is raining, classes of course to not get cancelled, but parking is so good that the students do not have to walk far in the rain to get to classes.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I gave the housing an A minus because there is housing available, but there is not as much nice housing as Madison or Huntsville. However, some students may not mind driving from Madison to Athens State University. There are houses to rent and apartments near Athens that are great quality, and there are different price ranged apartments.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm in the education program, and I enjoy it. All of the teachers I have had have been very helpful and friendly. The education classes seem to be a little more tailored toward elementary education majors, whereas I am a secondary education major. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about the program.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's a nice college town. It's very near Madison and Huntsville, so there are lots of attractions, shopping, and food there. Athens itself has a decent amount of food and shopping, but not huge.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is no campus housing at Athens. No dorms at all.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in a two-bedroom townhouse only about 4 minutes from the school. It is in a really nice neighborhood and the rent is extremely reasonable.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather is usually very fine. Classes have never been cancelled since I have been attending, and the weather has not been bad enough to warrant it.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Athens is a small town but they do have a lot to offer. Right around the corner from Athens State is downtown Athens where they have car shows once a month, plenty of small stores to shop in and their is a good variety of places to eat within Athens. Athens tends to be a vibrant community during the day and quiet at night. Though they do have some problems they don't occur that often.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing near Athens State is available but most are to expensive for a college student and they must settle for a place that is more run down and landlords don't exactly care about your complaints. The apartments near Athens State are conveniently located to the campus and to other needs within town. The main problem is having to find an apartment that is affordable and on short notice. Most places are normally full and want to charge you a ridiculous price to live their.

College Junior

Athletics: I don't know much about the athletics at Athens State.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: You find a variety of guys and girls on campus. The girls and guys are your typical southerners.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are not a big deal. Athens is mainly a transfer school.
