    Tips for prospective students

    Come to Angelo State University! Apply for all their scholarships their is nothing you can lose and be involved on campus!

    Bang for the buck

    Angelo State University offers many scholarships for incoming freshman. Because Angelo State is a small campus they can offer more money to qualified students. A side from this, the university's Multicultural Center also offers scholarships to incoming scholars and young girls who choose to participate in the mother/daughter program. ASU was founded by San Angelo's elite citizens the money these citizens donated goes towards student scholarships.

    Am enjoying being here

    Angelo State University has over 20 student organizations. It is not hard to find one that accomodates your interests. This university's organizations are more like mini families that stick together. Most of these organizations offer scholarships without requiring anything but participation. Even more than financial aid being involved in an on campus organization rewards you with the gift of life long friendships.

    Am learning a lot

    Being at Angelo State University I have learned the true meaning of diversity. Though it is a small school it's diversity is what makes it so great. I have learned that diversity is not just having class with different ethnicities but also accepting their culture and admiring their traditions.

    Premed, communications, physical therapy, physics, biology... those are the big ones.

    Tips for prospective students

    This school is mainly recognised in science for its biology and physics programs, not to mention pre-medicine, and they are ranked among the top in the state. The exceptions are Chemistry and Biochemistry - From the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department. All of the department professors are... hmm... let's just say they're not the best teachers and they don't really care about how much you learn, they just want to get the class over with.

    Nursing, Premed, Kinesiology, Biology and Physics Students

    Tips for prospective students

    This school is very good for students looking for careers in health or science. The dorms are also nice and spacious, and the meal plan isn't bad either. For a school of its size, Angelo State has a good amount of resourses to aid with studying and such. The classes are usually under thirty people unless it is a lecture course and the professors don't have teacher assistants teaching their classes. The professors are also usually easily accessible and are open to appointment scheduling. Also, the university provides supplemental instruction to help with any questions you may have about course curriculum. Overall, attending this school has been a good learning experience and an smooth transition into college life.

    Bang for the buck

    Angelo State is one of the least expensive public universities in the state of Texas and it has highly ranked physics and biology programs so I would say that it is worth the money.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am enjoying the university. I have lived in Austin, Tx for most of my life so it was a little different moving to a smaller town but the friendly and helpful faculty, staff, students, as well as the surrounding townspeople made the transition much easier than I anticipated.

    Am learning a lot

    So far, Angelo State has taught me a lot as well as enhanced knowledge that I already knew from high school. I found that the Science courses were somewhat difficult but the professors are understanding and will help you when you need it.

    This school is great for all majors especially their Psychology, Education and Pre-Med One of the most impressive thing is how well the school does to unify all ethnic groups. If you want to experience new cultures, save money, and be part of a unified school then Angelo State University is you school!

    Tips for prospective students

    Angelo State is a great school for incoming freshmen. It's the perfect size for students coming from both rural and urban areas. Student's can get to know their professor's and can easily become part of an organization.The classes aren't generic and the professor make the effort to make sure you grasp the material which you would not get at many larger universities. It's so easy to make friends that you will have for a lifetime there.

    Bang for the buck

    Money was always one of the burdens I have had when entering college but Angelo State has helped me so much. They have so many scholarship opportunities, grants, and work study programs that you can even make a profit there. They will pay you to take surveys, referee games you love, and provide job opportunities. If your in financial need they have several ways to help you pay for tuition, books, and class. I came to Angelo State for virtually nothing. They give access to computers, supplies, even laundry which is covered in your tuition. It's a great school for a even better price.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy every moment here. There is always programs, athletic events, and educational opportunities here everyday. I have had so many new experiences that I would never have thought of having. Whatever you like they have it. Whether it is community service, video games or salsa dancing they have an event for you and if they don't you can start your own or they will make an event that will interest you. I have had some of the best experience of my life here.

    Am learning a lot

    As a an incoming freshmen, I was very nervous on how I would be able to handle the transition from high school to college. I was amazed by how much the professors would help you. The size of the school makes it easy for the professor to work with you throughout the entire without sacrificing the the quality of education. I'm learning the material as well as other skills I can use through life including time management, sociability, and understanding other's culture and traditions.

    Great for any one going into the health field. Its not a spread out campus so its wonderful for people wanting to make new friends.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for financial aid ASAP! Also handle all of the paper work for your dorm quickly otherwise you may be in a building you may not want to stay in. Also, register quickly so you have plenty of classes and teacher's to choose from.

    The university has a clinic and many sports and exersise classes open to the students. Tons of tutoring so struggling with classwork can be less stressful.

    I am learning so much not only with the teachers I have but with the numerous tutoring services offered here. Each teacher has office hours plus they refer me to other teachers if they think I need more help.

    Any type of student will fit in here. I hear the biology and math programs are pretty good.

    Tips for prospective students

    Have an open mind. Use rate my professors when you are about to choose a class. Renting books is better than buying them, Chegg works out great. Stay positive and work hard.

    Bang for the buck

    Well with the tuition thats being paid there are all kinds of fees that need to be paid but you can look online and realize that the fees you are paying most things you get free or cheaper than other schools like a parking pass or yearbook fee. When you join certain organizations thats free as well because you're already paying for it.

    Am enjoying being here

    Everyone is very friendly, no one seems to mind striking up a conversation or giving you an extra hand which makes it easier and more fun to be on the campus. There is so much to do on campus and nice shops off campus so its pretty cool.

    Am learning a lot

    The academic side to this campus so far is great, the books they use are informational and most professors and tutors make sure you actually learn what is being taught and anything else you might need to help you in the future.

    This school is great for students on a budget, who want a hometown feel mixed with the city, and for a diverse experience. There is a rich culture at ASU, you just have to experience it for yourself!

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are planning on attending ASU, and have been accepted, register for housing AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!! I can't stress how important it is to register early to get the dorm you want! Also, I recommend finding an extracurricular activity such as a sport, religious group or club to join; it will help with making friends a lot easier and faster. Also, if your living on campus, then you are required to have a meal plan, so make the most of it! You are paying to go there, so eat there and save some cash! Students can eat at the Cafeteria, or the University Center. Parking: Make sure that you park in your designated parking zone, because you will get a ticket! I once witnessed one of the campus policeman taking a picture with his phone of a car that was parked crooked at the University Center, and they got a ticket! A bonus for on campus students or C zone students, you are free to park in B and D zones AFTER 1:00PM! A major tip is to also do research on the professors you are planning to take, ask current students, look online at Rate My Professor or even call and talk to them yourself; believe me you don't want to get stuck with someone you don't like! If you do happen to get stuck, don't worry, the first 2 weeks of school are Add/Drop week, which means you have two weeks to check and see if another class has space for you to transfer to!

    Bang for the buck

    I would have to say that ASU offers a lot of recreational, educational, and overall fun experiences on and off campus for students. The financial aid staff is always on top of their duties and keeping you informed of your situation. The school also offers a LOT of scholarships, most of which are geared towards incoming freshman. However, there are some scholarships such as the CARR scholarship which is grade based, and once received, if you keep your grades and classes at the requirement, you will receive it every year you attend.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus has improved a lot over just the last year that I've attended! They have completely redone the Library and the Gym, as well as redone the walkways around campus, and added new housing units and recreational areas! The campus constantly has events going on that are offered to ASU students, as well as the San Angelo Community; the good thing is that student usually get in FREE! Anything from tailgating parties before football games, to Flamingo dance lessons, and movies in the Planetarium are available.

    Am learning a lot

    I am currently an Art Major, and of course everyone has to cover basic classes as well as your major concentration areas as well. I would have to say that the classes I've taken outside of my concentration area are really great. If your not that into math or science, they offer Intro to Business math which is WAY easy and the professor is a really funny guy, or they offer Astronomy, which is held in the Planetarium! So overall, in or out of your concentration area, your going to get a great experience in all of the different major departments.

    If you like to develop relationships with your teachers and to be in small classes, then Angelo State is just right for you! And we may be a small school, but boy do we have school pride! Please help spread our Ram Pride!

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for all of you prospective students is to be up to the challenge of late nights and early mornings due to intense study sessions, so bring your coffee pots with you on move-in day! Also be ready to meet hundreds of new people, because the people you meet in college could be the people you will be friends with for the rest of your life! Try to keep good study habits and be careful if registering for morning classes, sleeping through a class can hurt your grade.

    Bang for the buck

    ASU tuition is easy to deal with. They have many scholarship opportunities and have an amazing finanical aid program.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love being at Angelo State. It is the perfect size school. Not too small, but not too big either! There are so many activities to take part in and so many people to meet. It's always been said that once you get to college you won't want to leave. I'm proud to say that, after my first weekend here at ASU, I told my parents that I never wanted to go home.

    Am learning a lot

    Here at ASU the teachers main goal is to help you succeed in all of your classes. They take the time to get to know you so that you can learn more and gain better knowledge of various subjects. I'm enjoying learning so far and you also get a chance to meet some friends during classes and study sessions.

    Angelo State is great for people who want to go into practically any field and who want a little diversity in their life. We have an excellent student teacher ratio and lots of people who are willing to help you out. The campus is located in west texas and the people around town are very nice and accepting.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are thinking of attending here, then definately schedual a trip for a campus tour. Angelo State often has a day set aside about once a month called Discover ASU which allows prospective students and parents to walk around the campus, meet other people who are attending the school, view the dorms, and see what types of clubs are offered around campus. Once you are accepted, then come and join us in the summer for SOAR where you can register for classes and find out more about the classes here and have the oppotunity to stay in a dorm overnight. If you can't stay overnight they do have the SOAR express option. Check the Angleo State Website for more information.

    The tuition is one of the best things about this school. It is one of the lowest in the state of texas from what i understand and there are scholarship opportunites everywhere.

    The professors, for the most part, are willing to work with you as much as you require. Being a small school, you are on first name basis with your professors, which aids in making the learning environment a comfortable one.

    Clubs and Activities

    I highly recommend joining an organization within your field of study, not only for contacts and references but for help studying and getting to know new people on campus. Plus, most of time students are always willing to help another in the same field.

    Great for these types of students

    ASU has a wonderful Nursing Program, but most any field is one you can get a good degree in here.

    We have what many call the Gum Tree. When you take your first tour of the campus, every tour guide will show you this tree, located next to the Porter Henderson Library. Sadly, this past year a storm hit and caused the tree to fall. The stump still exists and still has gum all of it.

    Bang for the buck

    I would say ASU is somewhat expensive, but compared to other big schools you are getting great staff and severely newly renovated buildings. We recently re did our library and center for human performance center and both are wonderful!

    What to do for fun

    I am personally involved in a co-ed business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi, and have met students who are in the business field. I would suggest joining some form of Greek Life or any other organization on campus.

    Food and Dining

    I have only been in the cafeteria one time and the food was not bad...for cafeteria food. It was a little expensive for me, but there are other places nearby and even on campus that are affordable for the average college student.

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived on campus, but I have been in the newest edition on campus, Centennial. You have to choice of either a two or four bedroom living quarters. I believe the University should provide the students the option of living off campus without having completed 60 credit hours.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are very serious about the coursework and every one has an attendance policy. The faculty does care about each student as long as each student puts forth the effort needed to pass the course.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tuition may be high, but go out and explore the campus and San Angelo. You never know who you may meet. Take advantage of all the facilities that are offered to you by the University.

    In three sentences

    Angelo State University is a member of the Texas Tech University, but is not so overwhelming as a large school. ASU is very spirited and always has some activity provided for its students to attend. ASU has been nomiated in the Princenton Review as one of the top schools to attend.

    it is a very good school because of the low teacher to student ratio so the professors really help out a lot after their class hours. also it is in san angelo which is pretty goo because it has some of the big town feel , but without all of the traffic.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is what you make it. Each dorm has it's own character and setting. Pick the right one and you should get matched up with a compatible roommate. I know I was! We are still great friends.

    Academic Rigor

    It is hard, but there are endless available tools ASU provides to help students pass such as Student Instruction study times (SI), direct communication to all teachers at all times, study halls, and 24/7 access to free wifi and computers.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to open up to your teachers if you need help. Asking for help creates learning experiences and opportunities. Concentrate on academics, do not stress too much, and have fun. Explore new ideas. Angelo State University is a great place to start.

    Campus is extremely safe. All resident halls have card readers that only allow residents of that building to enter and have cameras placed in all of the hall ways. Emergency call boxes are stationed throughout campus and our UPD patrol the streets at night.

    Bang for the buck

    ASU is one of the cheapest universities in Texas and offers many free services such as a clinic and large rec center.

    What to do for fun

    Residential Programs often hosts events on campus such as cookouts, sand volleyball tournaments, movie nights, video game tournaments, super bowl parties, and dance parties that are all free. ASU has its own lake house right on the lake where students can go BBQ, check out kayaks, or soak up some sun. San Angelo has great shopping and all kinds of places to eat at.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria provides good food and a convenient place to socialize. Though the food isn't like moms cooking, there is a variety of things to choose from.

    Dorm Life

    Residence halls at ASU are a home away from home. Roommates are matched based on similar interests and, on the rare occasion that there is a roommate conflict, problems are quickly solved. There is a staff of about 50 resident assistants (RAs) on campus. The RAs are always available to help the students in any way whether by giving advice, lending an ear, mediating a roommate conflict, or helping register and find classes. The residence halls are very nice and comfortable. Some buildings offer private rooms and there are buildings designated for freshmen to live. The freshman housing is specially equipped for helping make the transition from home to on your own as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

    Academic Rigor

    Courses at ASU are great! Every professor takes a personal interest in their students and make contacting them for help very easy. Class sizes are small and interaction during lecture is welcome and encouraged. Resources such as the touter center, math lab, writing center, and SI sessions make tackling a challenging course a piece of cake.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early and be familiar with the process, mark important dates and deadlines in a calendar where you can see them, and contact your future advisor (it makes a good impression).

    In three sentences

    Angelo State University is the perfect size and provides its students with the resources, opportunities, and motivation they need to succeed during and after their time at ASU. The easy to navigate campus is filled with friendly faces, comfortable home-like residence halls, eager-to-help staff, and professors that take a personal interest in the success of each and every student. San Angelo offers culture, good food, community, activities, and a home away from home.

    Like I said before, it's a small town! If there is something going wrong its usually found out in a couple of days. No real crime here and if you are sensible, you will have a great experience at ASU!!!!!

    Greek Life

    Greek life is well and stable here at ASU, but there is no hazing. That is great cause everyone is included, even single parents!!!

    Clubs and Activities

    There are clubs. The Greek clubs are more active than the other clubs. We do have a really great Homecoming week, but as the semester goes on the clubs are a little less active, which is good considering finals are tough on everyone.

    Great for these types of students

    Students that like a small town feel. All the churches here in town adopt the incoming freshman. There is always something free to eat. The classroom size is generally 30 or less. The junior and senior level class sizes are 15 or less.

    There is a nasty bubblegum tree that people stick their ABC gum on.

    What to do for fun

    We have a two lakes, a lake house, biking, camping, running, intramural sports, movie theater, opera, symphony, free outdoor theater, fireworks on holidays, swimming, bars and dancing....there is plenty of volunteer work available too!!!

    Food and Dining

    There is probably more restaurants here than any small town would ever need. Campus food is more than adequate and tastes great too!

    Dorm Life

    There is a variety of dorms here with varied pricing. San Angelo is a small town in West Texas so with the Carr Scholarship and a part-time job there is no reason to even take loans.

    Academic Rigor

    Of course this also depends on your major. The nursing and physical therapy departments are very demanding. Although I am a German major I have heard that the Accounting department prepares you very well for the CPA and CMA exams.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do your homework! Talk to your professors and you will get better results. There is free tutoring here and the Carr Scholarship pays your way. Know what you want to major in by the sophomore year and start getting scholarship money from your department.

    Campus Safety

    I have never once felt unsafe at ASU. Even late at night there are police patrolling and offering to walk you back to your dorms, or just saying a friendly hello. Drugs and Alcohol are not an issue on campus and the dorms are all very secure and difficult to get into if you are not a resident, or accompanied by one. While there are some car burglaries, it should not be an issue if you actually lock your doors and don't leave expensive things lying around in your car.

    Greek Life

    The Greek life here is OK. There are always fraternity parties happening somewhere off campus, and people are always looking for knew sorority or fraternity members. While some do party quite a bit, all of the Greek organizations are very involved in the community and campus and generally are very friendly to all students.

    Clubs and Activities

    It is very easy to get involved here, whether it is church organizations, sports, or other random clubs like the video game association, there is something for everyone.

    Great for these types of students

    It is great for small town students who don't want to be overwhelmed with large classes or too many people. Students who cant afford a big name school but still want a quality education and a reputable diploma would fit in well here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is the gum tree, where students put their previously chewed gum on for good luck. When it gets icy and snowy, all the students go sledding on the hill between Texan hall and the basketball arena.

    Bang for the buck

    For as low as the tuition is at ASU, you really get your moneys worth. The gym is great, the food is OK, and the dorms are really nice. The teachers all have great educations, some are leading in their fields, and they are all extremely friendly and willing to work for you. The honors program at ASU is highly competitive with even the big name schools like Tech and A&M.

    What to do for fun

    There are many bars if you are of age, and Midnight Rodeo is fun if you like dancing and country music. Intramural sports is a big deal at Angelo State and you can always find a sports game going on somewhere. There are quite a few good places to walk or ride bikes and the lake is great for swimming, camping, or just hanging out with friends.

    Food and Dining

    The food plan is a little expensive, but for the low cost of tuition it is not too bad. There are different places around campus which offer many types of food. The food is not horrible but its definitely not five star. The only issue you sometimes run into is that the stores and the cafeteria close pretty early in the evening so you cant eat late at night.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms, other than Concho, are extremely nice. You will only have to share a bathroom with up to 4 people, or less. The staff in the dorms are very friendly and helpful if you have any problems. The dorms are very laid back and relaxed and you generally shouldn't have a problem getting to know people in your all with all the programs that are put on. It can get slightly noisy if you are the type who like complete quiet when you sleep and study, but it is not too bad.

    Academic Rigor

    Many of the core classes are relatively easy if you just do the work that is assigned to you and show up. The classes specific to certain majors are much more challenging, but the professors do an excellent job of making class interesting and working with students if they need the help. If you work hard you will get the grades you deserve, there are no free handouts.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't worry about not knowing anyone in college, the people here are very friendly. Realize that you will actually have to study and go to class, even if you did not have to in high school. The more you get involved in the school and community, the more at home you will feel.

    In three sentences

    Angelo State is a great school for students looking to pay less and get more. The university offers an abundance of extracurricular activities ran by friendly and enthusiastic people. The campus is beautiful and the students and staff are very welcoming.

    Like i said, ASU is not what you would call a party school. The frat guys throw a few major parties over the course of the year though. The on campus committees do a pretty good job of forming events and providing movies and things for us to go to. And hey, it's West Texas so there's always football!

    Food and Dining

    The food is better than what you typically might've gotten in high school. However....don't expect it to be like mom's home cooking. Oh, and the cost of the meal plan is a little pricey.

    Dorm Life

    Do not live in Concho Hall! We on-campus students have a few choice nicknames for that place. The good news is that ASU typically reserves some of the older rundown dorms like Concho for student overflow. So apply for housing early, lest you get stuck in some old moldy building straight out of the 70's. Freshmen have new dorms though....

    Academic Rigor

    Coming from a former AP student, I'd say the academic rigor is definitely enough to keep you busy, especially your first year in. But its not so much that you won;t be able to maintain a job and an active social life.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're considering attending ASU, just know that this is NOT a party school. San Angelo is a small town with a modest population; all the more reason to bring your A game because thats what they value around here. Make sure you apply for those work study jobs early!

    In three sentences

    Academic Rigor

    It is not too challenging however, it's not that easy either. It's a nice school to get your undergraduate degree. Since it is such a small school the degree plans are limited as well as opportunities for people who aren't education or nursing majors here.

    Tips for prospective students

    You should enjoy your time here; enjoy your life in this moment as a college student. Take advantage of the familial atmosphere and also, take part in all the campus activities. It doesn't get more fun than those!

    I know students are required to live on campus the first year but the dorm look very comfortable.

    Academic Rigor

    I have only visited the school but I would think the courses would be medium course load.

    My visit at ASU was very short but I must admit I loved it. I visited the MIR center on a trip and I must say it is state-of-art facilities there. Also the faculty are great and seem as they would know everyone by name.

    Bang for the buck

    Angelo state is definitely one of the best schools for the bang of your buck. Once you officially attend you are able to use all services that ASU has to offer most of them included inn your tuition like the gym, planetarium, sporting events the whole 9 yards.

    What to do for fun

    ASU has tons of clubs, and activities to be involved in. While San Angelo may not be the craziest town ever there is normally somewhere to go to accommodate your interest.

    Food and Dining

    Food isn't fantastic but it isn't bad either. There are multiple places to eat on campus so you can always find whatever you might be craving that day.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is fantastic. Everyone is usually incredibly easy going and making friends shouldn't be a problem at all.

    Academic Rigor

    Angelo state courses aren't incredibly hard with good management skills and work ethic getting straight A's shouldn't be a problem. Just keep up with your classes and make sure you actually attend the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Really as long as you attend class you should be able to do well. You get what you put out so if you work hard your grade will reflect it.

    In three sentences

    Angelo state is a great school especially for those who want a small student/teacher ratio. ASU provides tons of opportunities to get involved around campus and express yourself in multiple ways. It has a very nice campus that is well kept and respected on many levels.

    Clubs and Activities

    We have a club for anything you can think of as well as plenty of fraternities and sororities to join, and an AFROTC detachment.

    Great for these types of students

    Social, outgoing, artisitic, military

    Bang for the buck

    This is one of the best educations you can recieve, and it is by far one of the cheapest universities to attend in Texas. Paying for college here makes it easy on your wallet.

    What to do for fun

    There are plenty of on campus activities as well as activities put on by the dorm room staff each month. There is never a day without a fun activity to do on campus.

    Food and Dining

    It's not home cooking, but it's not the worst ood I've had.

    Dorm Life

    Great dorms! The best I have seen at any college in Texas! Enjoy your own rooms. Newly built! Great people throughout all dorms on campus!

    Academic Rigor

    There is no such thing as easy classes at any college. The only way to make it easy is to put enough effort in your classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise prospective students to keep track of all of your college finances. You are no longer a high school student, so they will not remind you on any bills that you might have to pay. Always study, you can spend time with friends once your are done with your homework. Have fun, these are some of the best years of your life.

    In three sentences

    This is one of the best small universities to attend in Texas. You get one on one time with professors while in classes, and plenty of time to speak with an advisor. On top of that, there are many degree programs to choose from, one of the best nursing programs in the nation, and the best mid-sized AFROTC detachment in the South West region.

    Clubs and Activities

    Angelo State always has some type of intramural sport going on from football to extreme frisbee and this is a year round thing! The school caters to all cultures with a variety of clubs and the opportunity to start one of your own. There is never a dull moment on campus rather you like doing ab lab or Zumba or you would prefer to go to a comedy show!

    Food and Dining

    I am a vegetarian so the variety of items are very slim for me at this particular school but they do provide me and the campus with meatless Monday! An issue with the meal plan is that if it isn't a commuter plan then if you miss the time for a meal you lose that money even if at the end of the day you haven't swiped your card once. The university provides a variety from Asian cuisine to pizza and all the in between like fruit so that is appreciated.

    Dorm Life

    This rating is a tad on the low side but that is just my personal experience with roommates and inconsiderate lobby mates! The actual dorms are built beautifully and provide you with just the proper amount of space to study, socialize, eat, and of course sleep! My only complaint about some of the older dorms is that they do not have recycling so the students can't take advantage of that aspect.

    Academic Rigor

    Every single one of my classes so far have been under 35 students making the learning process that much easier! The instructors and professors at this university go out of their way to make sure you understand all of the material! Tutoring labs and writing labs have been a huge part of my academic life and the staff in those work over time until you are comfortable leaving.

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend that if you do not have access to a vehicle that you do not attend this university. Even though most things like the grocery stores and some fast food places are in walking distance the town has much more to offer that only a vehicle can allow you to get to. This university is also known for its outstanding physical therapy program so if that is your field of choice then this should be your school of choice!

    In three sentences

    Angelo state has great professors that get to know their students along with small class sizes. What the school lacks in food choices it often makes up in its location to a variety of different restaurants! The university works hard to bring different events to campus that will suit every individuals likes.

    Bang for the buck

    Bang for the buck is the one of the most popular praises that ASU receives.

    There is something to do when you're bored if you look hard enough. Especially in the student recreation center. There are many clubs and greek organizations even the most prestigious ones.

    Food and Dining

    Food was mostly nice or okay.

    Dorm Life

    I live at home but the dorms aren't terrible; some are very nice.

    Academic Rigor

    Some professors are easy and lenient, which may make some students become too comfortable. But there are plenty of challenging professors.

    Tips for prospective students

    If students want a lively city, then they should consider others as well because the community is retirement-oriented. There are clubs and bars, but those who are focused and want a extremely affordable education, should not care about such hobbies. However, the town does have a culture of its own, there is something to do if one looks hard enough.

    In three sentences

    Angelo State great learning institution for the value. The campus is still small, so being overwhelmed or lost is probably rare even during freshman year. Since it's a small university, there are more opportunities to build bonds with professors and ask them questions unlike big research universities.

    Angelo State University is a good school, they are highly ranked in a lot of their degree plans through out the state. It is a small campus that is growing.

    What to do for fun

    There are activities that are planned by student organizations or by the school.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining is great here at ASU because there are a lot of options to choose from. Breakfast there is usually Pancakes, French toast, bagels, bacon, eggs, hash-brown, sausage, cereal, fruit, milk juice, and soda. For lunch and dinner there is a fruit/ salad bar, mexican dishes, hamburgers, pizza, pasta and dessert.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life depends on how you enjoy your time there. The Wifi is not very good but it is better than nothing. There are activities and games that the R. A.'s host so residents can meet and be comfortable around each other.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on what your major is and what classes you are taking. Your professors will post assignments on BB, if they use it, and it will send you that they have done so by email. It is easy if you study and do the homework assigned.

    Tips for prospective students

    Visit professors during office hours because they are there to help you if you have trouble in their class. They are very nice and you will be their number one priority when you visit them. Use all the available sources offered such as tutoring because it is all paid for in your tuition.

    Inexpensive town.

    What to do for fun

    not much to do but talk and listen...'' -Drake Depends on what you enjoy. Plenty of open spaces to drink and chill. Only 2 nightclubs that are out of date. 1 movie theatre. A bunch of cute shops and tiny spots to enjoy on a 70 degree day. If you are 21+ plenty of bars. The lake is always beautiful, whether you go for a swim, dip your feet in, go a jog, or simply watch the sun set with someone special. That is about it.

    Food and Dining

    Like any food, it gets annoying after a while. You will love it in the beginning and find yourself digging for change to buy you anything but meal plan at the end. Don't get the most expensive meal plan!!! You won't use it.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is always fun, especially being your first time away from mom and dads rules. The dorms are some of the nicest you can get for your money.

    Academic Rigor

    The school, faculty, and other students are very helpful and persistent in getting you the education and grades you pay for. There are 'supplemental instruction' sessions for every course which help significantly in addiction to cooperative and enthusiastic professors. Most Universities make you still through an hour lecture of Borden then expect you to go home, teach yourself, and come back with assignments you barley managed to understand. While ASU faculty engages, teaches, instructs, and assists their students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Are you thinking of going to Anglo State? Before you make a decision consider the following: 1. Are you looking for a down scaled college experience? 2. Do you do better in small classes with people who will know you? 3. Are you gay? (cause there aren't very many gay people in San Angelo) 4. Are you looking for an exciting night life or serene school focused environment?

    In three sentences

    Small and great learning environment. A relaxing, calm, safe town where everyone knows you. The school will make you feel like they want you to be comfortable and successful. Great hospitality.

    The dorms are awesome. There so nicely made that it feels as a hotel not a school dorm. The only down side is that there is not much interaction between the students around the dorms.

    Campus Safety

    Pretty Safe I hardly ever hear of shady stuff going down. Rape prevention stations spread out throughout campus.

    Greek Life

    Not as popular as it is at bigger universities, but still a large part of the Angelo State community. Best frat -Kappa Sigma newer but all the members are pretty cool guys. Best sorority -Sigma Kappa or Delta Zeta.

    Clubs and Activities

    I have enjoyed the clubs at ASU, and have made some great friends because of them. I would recommend Ram Rugby, Chi Alpha, and intermural sports.

    Like the small college environment, and want to learn.

    Gum tree- Place a piece of gum on a particular tree near the library to guarantee a good grade on a final.

    Bang for the buck

    Definitely a good school for the price. Guarantee you will learn way better in the Angelo State small classroom environment than anywhere else.

    What to do for fun

    Go to all the ASU events, meet lots of people, and hang out on the weekends. Don't spend all you're time in your dorm. The town of San Angelo is pretty unexciting, but you can definitely have a good time. Best thing to do, go to the Ram Rugby games at the intermural fields.

    Food and Dining

    It is good the first week, then it kinda sucks the rest of the year. You have a choice between the café and the University Center dining area; the University Center has better food with Chick Filet as an option, but the café is more convenient.

    Dorm Life

    Some dorms are better than others, but most of them are fairly large. If you are a freshman I would recommend the massies, it is the best cheap dorm available. If you want quality stay in Texan for a really nice dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Moderate difficulty in most cases, some classes are easier than others. Study hard and go to class and your final grade will be show it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Wait until you go to class to buy books, so you don't spend unnecessary money. Check your professors on Ratemyprofessor.com. Get involved in a club or organization so you can make lot of good relationships.

    In three sentences

    Angelo State University is a lot smaller than your average school, but allows you to have a great college experience.
