5 College Senior

Majors: Elementary Education and the Educational Technology minor are fantastic! Athens is the best education school in North Alabama in my opinion. The teachers vary and are wonderful instructors. The material is relevant and interesting. Field experience and internship processes are easy to understand and complete.

Local Area: Athens is a great area, but considered "small town". Not for everyone, but I love it.

Local Area: The local atmosphere at Athens State is just average. There's nothing really to stand out honestly. It's just a sleepy little town with some okay shopping and some okay eating.

Scholarships: Financial Aid went really well for me this year, all of the forms were taken care of promptly and I received my aid without any problems.

Off-Campus Housing: The availability of off campus housing is kind of sparse, the safety however is better than expected for that area. I personally don't live off-campus, but I checked in on it.

Diversity: the ethical diversity of people on campus is pretty big. I have interacted with African-Americans, Asians, Hispanics etc. Everyone is pretty tolerant of one another, even if that constitutes certain groups to stay to themselves versus having a confrontation

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Being in the liberal arts, you have a pretty broad range of curriculum to choose from at an undergrad level. I think that I would enjoy it more if there weren't as many general classes, and more classes geared toward the art major.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather in Alabama is pretty temperamental, so it can be great and cool one day, stormy the next and 90 degrees after that. I would say that the weather is just 'okay'.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on the ASU campus. I have not heard of any issues with safety within the past few years.

Off-Campus Dining: The variety of fast food options is great in Athens; however, there are not many dining restaurants available in the area. Most places do not offer special eating conditions or student discounts.

Weather: North Alabama weather is highly unpredictable. Severe weather and road conditions from tornados and snow/ice storms can cause the campus to close. Within the past few years, the campus has had to close more often due to these conditions.

3 College Junior

Academics: The workload for distance learning is extreme. There are several case studies, essays, and research papers that are required from each class. This can put a large workload on students, especially if they are working full time.

Majors: The student has to be proactive about every concern at ASU to receive thorough information.

3 College Junior

Majors: I enjoy distance learning, but I'm treated as just a number in this case. I chose ASU due to the convenience of completing my degree online locally. The instructors just cannot spend much time with you as an online student.
