4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It really depends on what you are looking for. Athens is a non-traditional school, and many/most of the students here are over the age of 25.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Athens State has many historical buildings that are very beautiful. Even though some of the buildings are old, they are updated, clean, pleasant, and safe. There are also many very new technologically current buildings. The library was just updated to include a place for students to congregate and collaborate. It is a beautiful building with extensive resources.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is diversity in age, sex, race, and religion at Athens State. Although most of the student body is made up of white, southern Christians, we do encounter the diversity that is good for broadening our social education as far as learning to communicate and be empathetic towards people who are different than ourselves.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Athens State. The university is located in a small quaint part of the city, which itself is not very big. I have had classes at night, and still feel very safe.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Applying for financial aid was very easy. I applied through and was contacted by the school about what to do next. I register online and it is very easy to see online how funds are applied. I buy my books the first day of class and use financial aid to pay for the books. The people at the bookstore are very helpful, as are all of the faculty and staff at Athens State.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: chain restaurants and like all the rest. A few locals but away from campus that are a bit hard to find and some have odd hours. Not a good selection for late night eating.

2 College Senior

Party Scene: Local night life is almost non-existent. clubs for over and under 21 are available in Huntsville, but it is about 20 to 25 miles

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I received student loans with no problem, but information about scholarships and how to apply was sparse at best. I had called and asked for scholarship information from the financial aid office and was told I needed to make an appointment.

5 College Junior

Administration: School polices are fair. They dont allow drugs and drinking at school.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There is not any party clubs around Athens state. But seeing that i am an older student, i am noy really looking for where the clubs are

5 College Junior

Diversity: athens seems to be ethnical diverst. Most of the student population is white females. In most of my classes it seems to be oldder students that are returning to school for better jobs

5 College Junior

Technology: The computer labs at Athens state are well maintained. I have access to WiFi. There is also the option of renting out a laptop from the school. Which i think is awesome for the students that can not afford to buy there own personal laptop.

2 College Senior

Transportation: Small parking area compared to other colleges near by. When we have everyone on campus it's hard to find a parking place. It's safety is very questionable, needs more lighting.

1 College Senior

Health & Safety: no campus transportation and really no public transportation

4 College Senior

Majors: I am very happy with my choice of an English major. I needed a minor and had a hard time choosing one.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Check Out HWY 72 – There are many restaurants on this road all close together. There are fast food places like Wendy's, Chik-Fil-A,and Lawlwer's. There is also a Cracker Barrell, Applebees and a chinese restaurant. I pass all these on my way to school and back home again.

4 College Senior

Local Area: The town is a nice quiet town with many fast food restaurants as long as sit down type places. The grounds at the school are taken care of and it is a very nice looking school.

5 College Junior

Parking: I never have trouble parking! There are always plenty of available spaces and the campus is so compact that you don't really need a car on campus, except for commuters.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We have everything we need, adequate not too much ..

5 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at Athens State is almost non-existent. We offer Greek groups for students who have achieved high grades or excelled in their coursework. Athens doesn't offer Greek housing and certainly doesn't allow students to host parties, which is great to me. I have visited to University of Alabama where Greek Life is almost all that matters. If you aren't a part of a Greek group it means you aren't as cool, pretty, and don't have enough money. My best friend quit her sorority, losing all fees, because of how she was required to treat a girl that they didn't think was very pretty. I don't disagree with having school organizations and clubs, but I do agree with not having clubs that decide what type of person you are by how much you party or how cute you are.

4 College Junior

Diversity: I think that Athens State is very diverse. The culture is very immersive.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can be a little bothersome only because of the last tenants, not because of the school.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: i love my major and really enjoy the sociology classes.I plan on going on to get my Masters degree in social work or counseling. I am concerned about the job market because the market isn't good for anyone right now.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I thought the Education Program was great. I found a job right away.

5 College Junior

Academics: Great 1st semester so far! So far I have been enjoying my classes and I feel the teachers are really out to help you succeed in your life and future job and the job market. Athens State wants you to succeed, and they have teachers who have that same goal, who teach ad fuel students to reach their highest potential and prepare to do their best work and ever continue learning to do better. I am proud to be attending Athens State University!
