3 College Freshman

Local Area: Good location for job prospects. The city atmosphere is appealing to those looking towards future planning in relation to family and career. There are a variety of cultural events on and off campus. Students tend to be very pleased.

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 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: If you like small, country towns, then Athens State is a great college to go to. If you live for the social scene, then Athens State is not for you. There are hardly any shopping centers and absolutely no nightlife attractions. However, Athens is a very safe city.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Athens is a small community. Cost of living is great and there is enough to do on the weekends if you like the outdoors. If you are more of a party animal, and like a big city, then Nashville is not to far away.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: As a college student there is not much to do in Athens. It is more family orientated.
