    Bang for the buck

    ASU's tuition is actually pretty cheap and all sorts of things are added in the tuition so you do everything for free. you get the fitness center, food, admission to games, events, yearbooks, parking passes. and everything else you could imagine.

    Am enjoying being here

    every person on campus is super friendly and helpful. there are tons of things to do so you are never bored.

    Am learning a lot

    the teachers really help you out if you need any extra help and love their job.

    Great for these types of students

    It's great for all kinds of students. I'm in the Communications College and the great thing about it is that it's Accredited and well respected.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always check for scholarships in your department. You will most likely get one. I love ASU. You're classmates are supportive and willing to get to know you better. No one judges you for what you look like. It's very easy to make friends here.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition is really cheap here at ASU compared to the two other major colleges in Arkansas (University of Arkansas and University of Central Arkansas), and the 'bang' you get for your buck greatly exceeds your buck! What you pay is small compared to what you get out of it.

    Am enjoying being here

    College life is great here. Fraternities/Sororities, Student clubs and groups, great athletic opprotunities, there really is something for everyone!

    Am learning a lot

    I am a Music Education Major at ASU-Jonesboro. I've been studying music for years, being in band in High School and Jr. High, as well as playing various instruments since elementary, but I am amazed by how much I learn every day from my music classes. Top notch teachers at ASU

    ASU is a great atmosphere for any student and has many majors for you to pick from.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are thinking of attending ASU you really need to do a campus visit before. This helped me to feel more prepared for school here and it allowed me to be able to find things easier when I got here.

    Bang for the buck

    ASU is pretty fairly priced. They accept many scholarships and really work with you on financial aid. They seem to really care about helping me get through college with as lest debt as possible.

    Am enjoying being here

    I really enjoy all of the activities that are on campus and the many different things to do here on campus. They always have something going on or some event to attend.

    Am learning a lot

    This college has amazing teachers that really care about me knowing the material. I have found ASU in Jonesboro to be a great atmosphere to learn in.

    Sports fans- Plenty of sports to watch and inter murals to play Thinkers- The faculty are brilliant people and like to challenge their student Artist- I can tell you this, ASU does not try to stifling your creativity, they encourage you Anyone really- There's something at ASU for everyone, just look around and you'll find some thing on campus for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't slouchy! College is not always a walk in the park. Some classes take more time than others but that doesn't mean should devote less time to any. Also get to know your adviser. They are there to help you and want to. They make things easier with registering and working on your major.

    Bang for the buck

    College is expensive. That's a fact. ASU is cheaper than some of the other colleges in the state. They offer many scholarships in any major. You just have to get out there and find them.

    Am enjoying being here

    I haven't regretted choosing ASU. The friends I have made and the classes I've taken have been worth it. No matter how frustrated I might get at them, they surprise me with something I didn't know and teach me something.

    Am learning a lot

    every professor is interested in teaching you something. Everyone I've had has taught me something. In your major the advisers and other professors in the department always like to help you get farther and learn more to ready you for your career.

    The ASU is the right place for serious and devoted students who really seek nothing but success.

    Tips for prospective students

    To make your life easier in Jonesboro, buy a car. Students also need to socialize and make new friends to avoid loneliness, especially if they have no family in Jonesboro.

    Bang for the buck

    Arkansas State University challenges the students academically but not financially since tuition are not as high comparing to other universities in the US. Several jobs are also available to students in order to support them in paying their bills and tuition. The ASU also provides its students with prestigious and valuable diplomas which allow them to compete in the job market.

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy being in the natural state. There is a lot to do in Arkansas. I go to the gym, I hang out with my friends, I travel around the state and the country, I enjoy the natural view in the lake etc...

    Am learning a lot

    It is very honorable to be a student in the ASU. I am learning a lot about the American culture and the history of the United States. Moreover, being exposed to a new and different culture and lifestyle can broaden some one's horizons, intellect and linguistic skills.

    Campus Safety

    There have been various instances that have happened around the campus, but with each one a new attempt is made to ensure that it does not repeat itself. All in all, security and safety is good, but not 100% guaranteed.

    Greek Life

    I'm not much of a frat person, but from what I can tell their are various fraternities and everyone seems to enjoy being in them.

    Clubs and Activities

    As I have stated, there are various clubs and activities that are held from time to time. You just have to keep your eyes open to find them.

    Great for these types of students

    It's literally a melting pot. It is great for all students so long as you get out and look for whatever it is you seek.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I could do that, but the fun part is finding them out for yourself.

    Bang for the buck

    With the cheaper tuition, you certainly get a lot for what you pay for.

    What to do for fun

    There are various groups one may join and several fraternities if that is what you're in to. There is also an on campus gym, and there is almost always some type of event going on that one can attend. The trick is to just look at the various fliers and make an attempt to go.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria offers a wide selection of food. It is very good and you can eat all you want for the entire semester. Aside from the cafeteria, there are several on campus restaurants that students may choose from if fast food is more your speed. All in all, an A plus!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is alright, aside from the freshmen housing. You are typically paired with a complete stranger if you are going in alone, and most of the time they are disagreeable. Not to mention the freshmen dorms are squalid at best. But if you can make it through that, the upperclassmen housing it is well worth going through the struggle.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are only as difficult as you make them. Some professors are more demanding then others, but in the long run it all boils down to how much work you are willing to put into it.

    Tips for prospective students

    The best advice I can give is to always try your hardest. Do not let your friends tell you that you are wasting your time by going that extra mile. In college and in life that extra mile will go a long way. Do your best on every assignment, apply for all the financial aid you can, and practice whatever it is you are studying outside of class in your spare time. If you can do this, then I believe you have what it takes to succeed.

    In three sentences

    Arkansas State University is a well rounded college for those who seek a start in their career. It can be the beginning of a long and wonderful education, and it can serve as the end of ones educational goals all at the same time. Whether you're looking to start your road on earning a masters degree, or just looking to get your bachelors, ASU is the school of choice.

    Social, hard-working

    Tips for prospective students

    Come in with an open mind! It's so hard to shake off the ideas that we had in high school, but ASU is a place where anything is possible.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition continues to rise so that the administration can receive raises, and sometimes it's extremely frustrating. However, there are amenities such as the brand new (amazing) gym and constant student life activities on campus.

    Am enjoying being here

    ASU has truly become my home. I'm headed towards a career I'm passionate about, and have loved getting involved with the leadership organizations on campus. My freshman year I pledged Delta Zeta and have truly found where I belong - I can't imagine being anywhere else.

    Am learning a lot

    The college offers many different classes, so I'm able to actually find ones that I'm interested in. Professors are knowledgeable about their subjects and most of them are more than willing to help students both in and out of class.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very well-lit and there are usually several people walking around campus, even at night. The campus police officers are usually pretty nice and helpful if there is a problem.

    Greek Life

    I came to college thinking that Greek Life was DEFINITELY not for me. I literally had no desire whatsoever. I roomed with some guys during my junior year that were in a fraternity and their fraternity brothers would come over to hang out and they treated me like I had been their best friend forever. I really liked that and wanted a closer bond and something to do on campus. I became interested and eventually joined the next semester and I have absolutely no regrets. Even if you don't think Greek Life is for you or are totally against it, go check out some Rush events on campus, and don't just try one fraternity or sorority.

    Clubs and Activities

    JOIN AN ORGANIZATION! I can't stress that enough. Get involved on campus and you will not regret it.

    Great for these types of students

    Outgoing, Energetic, Fun-loving, EVERYONE!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Like I said, The Edge is a fun hangout where lots of people like to go to just chill and maybe listen to some music.

    Bang for the buck

    Very affordable university with lots of perks.

    What to do for fun

    You won't have fun if you stay in the dorm. Go out and FIND fun! There's usually always a gave of ultimate frisbee or something going on that anyone can join in on. Jonesboro also has a nice Malco theater, a new mall, and Craighead Park is a great place for biking trails or just enjoying the outdoors. Also, Memphis is only about an hour away for a quick trip out of town.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food is pretty good for being cafeteria food. Your best bet is to eat in the student center. There are also several great places to eat/hang out very close to campus. Checkout The Edge near campus. Great sandwiches and coffee drinks.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm can also be a great place to meet people. Don't stay in your room. Check out the lobby and introduce yourself. All of the halls have a unique community with a melting pot of personalities.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses can be tough, but most professors I've had are more than happy to work with you. Utilize those office hours!

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that you study appropriately. Get plenty of exercise. It's okay to take naps (studies show that it increases cognitive function. Also, have fun. Join a student organization, fraternity, sorority, or church group. Its the best way to make life-long friends.

    In three sentences

    ASU is a wonderful, medium sized campus. The teachers are very professional and personable. Class sizes are between 20-40.

    Campus Safety

    Safety has improved quite a bit since I've been here. You can have an escort during the night, as well as, the campus police patrolling. There are campus police call stations and ID assess only to keep out non-students.

    Greek Life

    From step shows, to parties, to events, you can see them all around campus. Currently, there is the construction of sorority road. Greek life is point blank, amazing.

    Clubs and Activities

    If ASU does not have the club or group you are wanting, it can always be started. Over my time at ASU over 5 new clubs have been started. Some activities overlap sometimes, and you will be torn on which one to attend.

    Great for these types of students

    ASU is great for students that want that college experience without the worry off flunking out of college. It is by no means a party school, but you will not be denied your share of fun while continuing your education. It is a great balance.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    They say that Wilson Hall is haunted. The Luau is a tradition because it is always the first event of the year. Let's not get started on homecoming traditions.

    Bang for the buck

    You can never say you are bored here. The activity board puts together an array of events that you cannot make it to all of them. Best of all, most of the events are FREE.

    What to do for fun

    Tailgating and football games for the sport fans. Plays, free dance classes, and free movie nights for the artist within you. A new gym for the students that want to work out offer different free workout classes.

    Food and Dining

    Cafe food has its good and bad days. For those bad days, there are other opinions still on campus!! Dead Day midnight breakfast is something you do not want to miss.

    Dorm Life

    Some of my best memories come from dorm life. I loved it so much that after moving off campus, I was right back on campus. It is so easy to get more involved that way.

    Academic Rigor

    If you are looking for a excellent education, ASU is a great choice. You actually get what you put into it. But if you are having trouble in a course, ASU offers tutoring help on diferent subjects.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not be afraid to get out and be involved. Be sure to check your email for the ASU Daily Digest because it connects you to what events are going on. Make friends and join into the school spirit.

    In three sentences

    ASU is a work in progress. Every year they are building or modifying something to make us stand out more. You will never feel alone or out of place because there is something for everyone here.

    There is always a campus patrol person to help you around, trust me i would know i had to ask one where the admissions office was on the first day i was visiting the college.

    Arkansas state University is overall an amazing place to go and i'm glad i get to be a part of it! Howl yes!

    What to do for fun

    They have so many activities! In the college and also in jonesboro. There is so much to do and they have good places to shop.

    Food and Dining

    All i'm going to say is that they have a Chick-Fil-A! Yum

    Dorm Life

    The dorm im about to live in is the all girls dorm (University Hall). It has 300 girls and 5 sororities. All rooms have a joined bathroom, so there are no communal bathrooms. Iv'e seen university hall twice already and i am ready to move in!

    Academic Rigor

    It's standards are set very high. They are a very good college and have a very good rugby, football team and a very good band. They have many extra curricular activities and Religious activities as well. Courses are amazing as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always, always look for scholarships at Arkansas state! They have so many and not a lot of college students know that.

    Campus Safety

    You will always see campus police presence around the school. It is very safe. I hardly ever see anyone speeding or driving recklessly. My car is in the same condition and never been broken into. Atmosphere around campus is great. It definitely does NOT have the constantly look over your shoulder feeling.

    Great for these types of students

    It is great for students of all ethnicity's. I have never seen such a wonderful ethnically mixed college. Students help each other out no matter your background. If you feel a little out of touch with your cultural background, ASU is the perfect school for you.

    Bang for the buck

    ASU is definitely worth every penny. There are plenty of activities on campus, there are always available computers for student use and the school definitely knows how to put their financial resources to good use! The campus is like a whole other world. It is clean, friendly environment and very resourceful faculty.

    What to do for fun

    There are plenty of activities to keep you occupied. There is the Hispanic Fall Festival with all kinds of free food and prizes. There are job seminars where all types of companies are present for questions and in helping you apply for a job for them.There are plays, football games, movie nights, cancer walks, bouncy castle events and activities for almost every interest. There is almost always something going on.

    Food and Dining

    The student union has a wonderful variety of foods available all the time. VERY fresh and delicious. There are some foods that will definitely draw your attention. There are numerous and interesting spots to sit and eat. Everyday I discover a different place.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live on campus, but I have researched the dorms from a financial point of view. The price you pay per semester is ALOT cheaper than living on your own in town. The cool thing is rent, water, electric, Internet and even phone are all included in the price. They even have some that are furnished and others that have washers and dryers in them. I was impressed with the prices.

    Academic Rigor

    From my experience, academic rigor varies a lot from teacher to teacher. What I have learned is that each teacher has a method to their madness and the way they have their syllabus's set up, no matter how strange it might seem to you, actually works. I haven't had a class so far where nothing was learned.

    Tips for prospective students

    If your worried about the transition from high school to college, don't worry. ASU has the most competent and friendly staff I have ever seen. I'm not just saying that, it is the truth. They are wonderful at guiding you through the process and in informing you of your options. You will never feel lost and in the dark. If you do, the faculty will get you where you need to be. Best college I have ever attended!

    In three sentences

    One of the most important jobs of a college is to provide a quality education and to provide necessary resources for students to succeed. ASU definitely does this and more. They not only have positive and encouraging faulty memebers to assist students, but also all kinds of valuable resources available on campus. Best of all, almost everything is included in tuition. Almost all activities and events are free.

    This is a good college to consider.. It offers many opportunities to have fun, as well as getting a degree in almost any major. It helps to attend class and if you're unsure about a subject, to ask your teacher. Everyone is very helpful, and very nice on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    This is not a very expensive college, and provides many opportunities for scholarships. You will get the same learning experiences here as you will at any other college. Typically, you're looking at about a 30:1 student/teacher ratio, which is good - You're in a good classroom setting.

    Am enjoying being here

    Arkansas State University is a fun campus. I enjoy all the fun possibilities that Jonesboro, in general, has to offer. There is usually always activites that the school puts on, whether it's from a scavenger hunt all over campus, or a movie screening on the Student Union lawn.

    Am learning a lot

    Teachers here actually enjoy what they do here. Not only will they expand your knowledge in the subjects they know, but broaden your horizons on other subjects. ASU provides many opportunities to not only learn in the classroom, but to learn just from being on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    The average cost for an ASU full-time (12 hrs) undergraduate is $2800/semester. For the courses/services offered towards the available degrees, the cost of attendance for ASU students is favorable among most.

    Am enjoying being here

    Enjoy being here? If I said that every day on campus was like a vacation to the French Rivera, I would most assuredly be stretching the truth. BUT, the courses, instructors, and students here on campus—each bringing to the table new ways to look at the world—ASU is a great place to be. Though each student and professor has his/her “bad” days, the “good” days are not far in the distance.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you can get an assigned parking spot, it will be so much better. Make sure you are known to your professors, that way if something comes up and you have to miss class, they are more likely to work with you. Apply for any scholarship you think you qualify for, many times there are not a lot of applications for departmental scholarships. Finally, look into the foreign travel grants for an awesome experience.

    Campus Safety

    There are emergency buttons located around campus to keep the students safe. First year students are also required to watch a video over a school shooting in order to prepare them for what to do in that kind of situation. There are many campus police officers that help keep the students safe.

    Greek Life

    I am personally not involved in Greek life, but I have many friends that are. It provides many career opportunities, and it is a way to meet new people, and help the community.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many opportunities for students to get involved. There is pretty much a club for anyone. For example, there are religious clubs, anime clubs, and gay straight alliance clubs.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are a student who enjoys a small campus, with one on one time for the students, this is the college for you. It is big enough to where you don't know everyone, but small enough to where you can find your way around. This is a wonderful campus for the student who needs one-on-one time.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is a coffee shop located on campus called The Edge. You get a student discount, and it's a fun place to go if you're tired of studying in the library. A lot of college students go there.

    Bang for the buck

    The good thing about ASU Jonesboro is that many local establishments offer a student discount to those who attend the school. The majority of college kids don't have a lot of money, so any discount counts. This has been very helpful to me.

    What to do for fun

    For fun I like to hang out with my friends, or attend the gym on campus. It's a nice way to blow of steam, and more importantly its free. If i'm not doing that, then I'm joining an on campus church, helping to reach out to the community.

    Food and Dining

    The food provided isn't the best food you will ever eat in your life. However, when you cannot afford to go out to eat it's nice to be able to swipe your card, and get a buffet of food. The only thing I think they could have more of is fruit.

    Dorm Life

    Some of the dorms are really nice, like the honors dorms for instance, but others like Arkansas Hall, Kays Hall, and University Hall are really nasty. The dorms are cleaned every day, but because the buildings are so old, it causes them to look gross.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes can be very difficult if you don't apply yourself. Fortunately, ASU is full of teachers who want to work with you. If you aren't understanding the material, it is likely that there is a tutoring session available. Go! It will help you more than it will harm you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not buy your books until you go to your classes. I spent a lot of money on some books that I never even used. Another tip I would give is to get to know your professors. The better they know you, the more likely it is that they will work with you. Don't skip class! Even if it's the coolest party of the semester, don't skip class the next morning. If you're cool enough to party, be cool enough to go to class.

    In three sentences

    Arkansas State University provides students with all the programs they need in order to reach their full potential in their future careers. The professors here really care about working with the students until they understand what is required of them.

    Other than sports activities that are free for students to attend, Jonesboro offers lots of activities. They have lots of clubs that can be joined. The choices are numberous.

    Meal plans are great option for those staying on campus. You can get food throughout day as often as you want. Also, several other different options for those not on meal plan or just wanting something different.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms seem small and can be challenging to say the least. Have been told that it is hard to study in dorms due to noise levels. Also, have heard that the elevators are out a lot in older buildings.

    Academic Rigor

    Like any college there are teachers who make your life hard but there are also teachers who like to keep it simple. The rigor here depends on mostly who you take and how good you are at task and time management.

    This school offers a great education without breaking your pockets. Arkansas State is a awesome place to be.

    FREEEEE FOOOOOD! Meal plans are the best thing since sliced bread. You can go into the cafeteria and eat as much as you want 3 times a day. Buffet style. There is also a few restaurants you can go to.

    Dorm Life

    I chose to live with my cousin because I wasn't quite ready to live with a stranger. University Hall is the dorm I chose. It is the all girls dorm. It was the best decision because I have made a few friends. including my RA. Sharing the bathroom with three other girls may sound like a nightmare but it really isn't that bad. If you do have any issues with your roommate or suite mate, that can be taken care of in no time. There is a policy called the no questions asked roommate switch, as long as you have another roommate and the old one has somewhere to go, you can switch.

    Academic Rigor

    You may have some professors who seem like they could care less about you or if you understand what they are teaching. But it is to teach that you are responsible for getting the material.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't buy your books so early. It is true that most of the books may be in short supply but you can always find them somewhere AND a lot cheaper. Rented the required textbooks is also a big help. I recieved all of my books for about $30.00 each when they actually cost about $200 each. Also remember that although you are held responsible for your college experience, remember that there are many people on campus who are willing to help you and can answer any and all the questions you may have. Make friends with your professors and meet your advisor. BIG HELP! Also, get involved on campus. Make sure you get the whole experience, after all, someone is paying for you to go so make the most out of it. You may not need a job freshman year but having a little extra money is never a bad thing, I work on campus so I don't need gas money =)

    Food and dining are great!

    Dorm Life

    Fire alarm was pulled one morning at 3:30; had a bomb threat and had to evaculate the dorm the next week - looking forward to continued adventures.

    Campus Safety

    The emergency alert system will send texts and emails to everyone signed up for it if anything happens on campus no matter where you are. If you're just afraid to walk back to your dorm alone at night, university police will happily give you a ride if you call. They'll even charge your car battery!

    Greek Life

    Greek Life is an amazing experience. Whether it's a sorority or fraternity, I encourage involvement! It's a great way to get involved and make new friends.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Order of the Pack is the first major pep rally. It is the Thursday before the first football game and it is an amazing experience for everyone. It's a great way to get pumped up and take a break from studying.

    What to do for fun

    Get involved! There are so many options. There's greek life and intramural sports and everything from ball room dancing classes to scuba diving classes!

    Food and Dining

    The food court is amazing. I'd go there everyday if I wouldn't get burnt out on it. The cafeteria has good days and bad days but as long as it is in your meal plan, it's free!

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are a great place to make new friends. Being surrounded by so many new people, you learn a lot about others. You can quickly figure out who you'll get along with in the first week.

    Academic Rigor

    Like I previously stated, the professors will do everything they can to help a struggling student. Tutoring is free and no one should be ashamed to ask for help! The classes work student's hard enough without over working them.

    Tips for prospective students

    Plan your classes close together. Not too close so they are almost over lapping, but close enough to where there isn't that hour between them that isn't long enough to get anything finished. Get involved! It's your freshmen year so make some friends! Don't overload yourself with clubs though.

    In three sentences

    It's an easy walk to every building; they're all close enough together so that the farthest walk would be ten minutes. There isn't enough parking, but where is that not a problem? The professors really make an effort to help each student however they can.

    Campus Safety

    The ASU Jonesboro campus is fairly safe. At night can be scary, especially being female. But, I'm sure that's how every campus is. There are stations set up all around campus for emergancies, and you can call university police to escort you anywhere at any time.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life at ASU is superb. With new sorority houses being built, the pull for students in the Greek community has also increased. There are many different place where students can feel at home.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is an abundance of clubs and actitivites here on campus. They stretch from Greek Life to The Quidditich Club. Membership usually dones't take up too much time, but students get a lot out of the clubs they are a part of.

    Great for these types of students

    Here at ASU we have many interational students. Also, it's a great place for Rugby players. We have many student athletes that come from around the world. It's a great place for relaxed people who just love life and looking at beautiful things and nature.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The library is so unusual. There are eight different floors in the library with study rooms located everywhere. People get lost in there all the time. We all it 'The Maze.' Everytime students go to the library you find a different spot that you didn't think was there the last time.

    Bang for the buck

    The scholarhips people get here compared to anywhere else are amazing. Students find themselves coming here because they are getting so much money for such a great campus.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many things to do here in Jonesboro. Downtown is about two minutes from campus, with cute little boutiques and restaurants. We have tons of little ice cream shops and fast food joints. There is also a bowling alley, skating rink, and movie theater.

    Food and Dining

    The caf is awesome. So many different choices, and a great atmosphere. People find themselves in there all day just sitting and talking with friends over lunch. The grill is where all the fried food is. It's usually the longest line.

    Dorm Life

    Freshman dorm life is AWESOME! Students will never be closer with friends and the people around them. After freshman year, people are more secluded and have their own agendas. But with that said, the dorms here are extremely nice.

    Academic Rigor

    All colleges have easy professors and hard professors. That's just how things go. But here at ASU, if you go to class and do the work, you should make a decent grade. There are expections to that rule, however. You could come across a tough professor, but not too often.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always eat in the caf! Don't park in restricted areas because parking services WILL get you. Keep up with your stuff, and become responsible.

    In three sentences

    Arkansas State University is the perfect campus. It is not too big, and not too small. It is a fun and calming atmosphere.

    I view Arkansas State University as a very dependable school. I can always count on my fellow teachers to help me with what I need to accomplish to fulfill my goals. Arkansas State University is close to home, yet, makes me independent enough to rely on myself instead of friends and family.

    I am involved in the Alpha Gamma Delta chapter of Greek Life at ASU. It is a great opportunity that I believe everyone should become a part of.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I have hear that there are underground tunnels below the campus, but that students aren't allowed to be down there walking around in them.

    Bang for the buck

    ASU is becoming a bigger campus and growing each year. I feel like for now, it's still relatively small, but in the years to come, I believe it will grow into a larger campus that is a lot more impressive.

    What to do for fun

    I'm from around the Jonesboro area, so most of the things to do for fun that are in Jonesboro, I've been doing already for a while. But there is mini golf, a movie theatre, art centers, plays being done at the Fowler Center, and concerts at the Convocation Center, along with all the games that are being played year around.

    Tips for prospective students

    Live on campus as many years as you can. I would try to get into Collegiate or Red WolfDen as soon as you can, and not get a meal plan. And I would make sure and keep track when everything is due to sign up for residence halls.

    In three sentences

    I think that ASU Jonesboro is absolutely wonderful. I have met my best friends here and found my passions for life. I would not have changed my decision to attend this college if I had another chance.

    There is always security around. I always feel safe during the day. However, just like anywhere, I wouldn't suggest walking around campus alone at night.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is very prevalent on campus. They are always spreading awareness or throwing awesome parties!

    Bang for the buck

    The school is wonderful. However, for out if state students it is a little pricey. There aren't many scholarships available if you don't live in Arkansas.

    What to do for fun

    During the fall the best thing to do is attend the football games and support the reigning Sun Belt Conference champions. The tailgates are pretty awesome too!

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria has wonderful food. The other dining options are also a nice alternative. I love having a Starbucks for that morning dose of caffeine.

    Dorm Life

    The HLLC dorms are wonderful and provide a wonderful learning environment.

    Academic Rigor

    Difficult courses are made easier by friendly and knowledgeable professors.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you get accepted into Honors, stay in Honors. Attend every event that you can.

    What to do for fun

    Since I have been in Jonesboro, I have very rarely ever been bored. The fitness center is open almost everyday with different fitness classes or intermural games going on all the time. Jonesboro also has a great mall that is nice, clean, and very big! The sororities and fraternities on campus also provide a lot of fun for students.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food is kindof a hit-or-miss situation. Some days, the food is very good (especially on premium days), while others you find hair in your food or bowls that haven't been washed. The Flex Dollars that are a part of your meal plan are awesome though. They can be used in the food court, the campus store, or at the on campus Starbucks.

    Dorm Life

    Living in the Honors Dorms has been good in some ways and bad in others. I love the fact that these are the newest dorms on campus, and that they are coed. However, they are far away from all of my classes, the parking is limited, and everyone keeps to themselves. The rooms are also smaller than those in Arkansas or University Halls.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes offered at ASU are very well taught. The professors engage their students and require lots of participation, whether online or in class. Of the classes I have taken, much is expected out of me, and I appreciate the fact that my professors are pushing me to do my very best.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advise prospective students to take a campus tour on a day that students would be out and about. It really gives you a sense of belonging because you can envision yourself walking to class with all the other students. Also, if a student wished to stay on campus, the 5 day meal plan with the most flex dollars is the best option.

    In three sentences

    ASU Main Campus has a great atmosphere, and the campus is very well kept and put together. The professors are very helpful and love what they teach. The classroom size is never very large, which makes it easy to form study groups.

    What to do for fun

    Every few months SAB will show a new movie every week. Usually it is one that has just come out. In town there are several things to do, a movie theater, bowling, a mall, craighead park and nature center. Downtown are a lot of local restaurants several providing live music on the weekends from local bands.

    Food and Dining

    Many choices but after the first few weeks its becomes slightly boring. The plus is there is always cereal or the food court area, but that one requires money.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is dorm life. With the right roommates it can be very enjoyable. after freshman year you have the opportunity to get a private room in either and apartment or quad style setting.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are tough but most professors are willing to work with you and will provide help outside of class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Never be afraid to ask questions and get involved in something. There are tons of clubs and intramural sports which are a great way to meet new people and find a circle of friends that will last a lifetime.

    In three sentences

    Arkansas State University is a very diverse campus with a place for everyone. In my years of attending classes here I have enjoyed every minute of it and would recommend ASU to anyone who is looking for a small campus with a very welcoming atmosphere.

    Campus Safety

    It's gotten better over the last three years since i last attended. There is a text alert you can sign up for that sends out emergency texts in case of a safety threat.

    Greek Life

    I have been to a few of the fraternity parties because my brother is in one of the campus fraternities. He always speaks highly of his frat and of the others on campus as well. My aunt and grandmother were both members of one of the campus sororities and have nothing negative to say there either, but personally I don't have great knowledge on this subject.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are activities and clubs on campus for just about everyone. My brother is a member of a fraternity there, I was in the choir my last time attending. The LGBT and Veterans organizations are better than expected.

    Great for these types of students

    It's a great college for just about anybody. Arkansas isn't very welcoming to LGBT students but the campus has an awesome GSA and can help with the stress of off-campus life.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Wilson Hall is haunted. It's not just a rumor. I've experienced it myself on a few different occasions. Also, the mascot randomly starts flash mobs in the student union. It's great.

    Bang for the buck

    This university is affordable and they offer lots of scholarships to help the average student. I have attended before and there are too many reasons to list about why I came back here. It's one of my favorite universities and I want more than anything to graduate from Arkansas State.

    What to do for fun

    There's many Division I sporting events to attend. The college tends to have lots of activities year round for the students to participate in.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is actually very good with lots of food choices. They also have what would be similar to a food court in a mall and there are many food options there as well.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life was great when I attended before. There are lots of brand new dorms and it's a closed campus so it's a pretty safe environment.

    Academic Rigor

    I've been to school here before. I would say the classes are not easy, especially the online ones. If you have problems and talk to your professors they tend to work with you and try to accomidate if you work your hardest.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early if you can. Visit the campus and talk to your prospective adviser early if you can. (Especially if you are a non-traditional student.) Give college your 100%. (I didn't my first time in college and now I regret it.)

    In three sentences

    It has a relaxing atmosphere that seems open and friendly to everyone. It's a beautiful campus but small enough to where you can easily walk everywhere you need to go. There are lots of places to go and things to do and campus sends out daily emails to remind students of the upcoming opportunities.

    Campus Safety

    We were voted number one on campus safety in the nation! The biggest concern for myself as a young female adult is campus safety. The campus security are only a phone call away from giving you an escort if you don't feel safe traveling somewhere by yourself. Also, we have blue towers periodically placed across campus that you can access anytime of the day or night if there is an emergency.

    Greek Life

    Last year alone, we had over two hundred females go through formal fall recruitment; that's an Arkansas State University first! Depending on what route you are wanting to take, I would advise you to visit http://www.astate.edu/a/leadership-center/greek-life/

    Clubs and Activities

    There are over three hundred clubs and organizations; we offer everything from Rugby to quidditch. There is always something to do, whether it be church involvement or intramurals.

    Great for these types of students

    Active students who want to be involved on campus and go places in life will make a great networking system.

    Bang for the buck

    The institutes graduation rate is the highest in the state for a reason. We have more students graduate from professional programs with jobs, before they even graduate from their program! Your advisers may not always know best, so confide in professors you respect; I know I owe a lot to my professors who steered me in the right direction.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something to do on campus. We have over three hundred organizations and clubs, a state of the art gym and the city life isn't too bad either. The Red Wolf Center (gym), is my home away from home. Chances are, you'll run into someone you know anywhere on campus.

    Food and Dining

    It's not grandma's cooking, but it's pretty decent for bulk cooking. The all you can eat buffet can get you in trouble, because there is always something fresh being served.

    Dorm Life

    Reality check: dorm life sucks. People are loud, rowdy; a lot like living with your siblings without your parents there to interject. The best advice I can give to you? Roll with the punches and make some great friends!

    Academic Rigor

    I am a medical major, therefor, my classes are intense. Your academic stress level will vary depending on your major. Your general education classes, which are your required classes in order to graduate, are probably harder than your pre-req's for your program which will be challenging, but not too difficult

    Tips for prospective students

    Something I wish someone has instilled in me before starting college, is time management. When your professors tell you a deadline, honor and respect it, because nine out of ten times, they won't let you submit the assignment late. Your AP classes are nothing compared to what you're about to take; read the material, invest in a good study buddy, and prepare yourself for the best time of your life!

    In three sentences

    Arkansas State University is not just a place where you go to earn a college degree; it's a home away from home. The campus can seem intimating at first, but with our vast list of clubs and organizations, there's somewhere you belong. Going to college is the best thing you can do for yourself; go with the best, Arkansas State!

    Campus Safety

    Campus police are there and on the prowl. They're there to keep you safe though, so don't worry. Also, there are safety zones. You'll be fine.

    Clubs and Activities

    Join a club or get involved in some sort of activity. It can help you stay busy, but not too busy. Don't overdo it. I joined RHA and it has helped so much. I stay out of trouble, I have met new people, and I am not also bored in my room or just concentrating on work. I also do volunteer work off campus. It's also fun.

    What to do for fun

    For fun I hang with my friends, go to the gym and play basketball, bad-mitten, workout, socialize, etc. There are also activities held in the Union like casino night or stand up comedy and talent shows. There's a lot to do for fun. Not to mention plenty of parties. If all else fails, hang with friends and watch movies or play video games, or join a club.

    Food and Dining

    Food everyday until 9p.m. is pretty awesome. The cafeteria ranges from grilled foods to chinese to salad and fruits and desserts and varies depending on theme, month and day. Food's nice and I love to eat. Then the food court beside the caf contain Chik-fil-A, etc. Sounds good right?

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is pretty cool. Live and laugh with your friends/roommates. Might have to establish some rules and boundaries, but I enjoy my dorm life. Ultimately, it is whatever you make it.

    Academic Rigor

    Make sure you do all your work on and study! It's college, academics is key (IMPORTANT). Plan your schedule, get your books and supplies and handle your business.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tips I would give are as followed: Budget your finances, manage your time, do all work and look for extra credit, don't just sit in your room. Business before pleasure, but have fun and enjoy yourself and campus as well.

    In three sentences

    I honestly would rate Arkansas State University-Main Campus as a good school. It is not too big making it easier to get to class, meet new people, and develop some sort of relationship with teachers/professors. I have enjoyed my time at this school and recommend it to others seeking education and social life throughout a college career.

    Campus Safety

    This is probably the safest campus I've ever been on. There are several emergency call posts around campus. They are easily identified at night because of the blue lights.

    What to do for fun

    Get involved! Get to know the people on your floor. Go to the advertised programs. Put yourself out there. I promise that there is always something going on here at ASU.

    Food and Dining

    When it comes to food, there are two options: the Acansa dining hall and the food court. In the food court, they take cash, credit/debit cards, and campus flex dollars. Restaurants on campus are Chick-fil-a, Howl's Grill, Godfather's Pizza, Jump Asian Express, and Lobos Rojos. By the names, you can see what all is served here. The cafeteria (Acansa dining hall) has 3 main food lines with 2 others that open during the lunch and dinner rush hours. Deli, Grill, and Pizza lines are open all day. Homestyle and International lines are open during the lunch and dinner rush.

    Dorm Life

    Here at ASU, we call it residence life not dorm life. The term dorm carries a negative connotation of seclusion and bad college experience. With residence life, we strive to make it a community. Our residence halls are fashioned in such a way that you are constantly interacting with another student.

    Academic Rigor

    Each college has their academic rigor. We are not a specialized school. However, our nursing program is the best in the state. Each degree plan has their work load and no two students will be the same.

    Tips for prospective students

    1) Know your RA. They are there to help you. 2) Don't be afraid to ask for help. 3) Teachers are there to help you. If you have questions, don't be afraid to send them an email or even stop by their office. There is a reason they have office hours. Use them to your advantage. 4) Your syllabus is GOD! You are an adult now. Your professors will not spoon feed you. Your syllabus will tell you EXACTLY when an exam is going to be. It is your responsibility to remember. 5) Planners are very helpful. You can pick up a free one at the Information Desk on the 2nd floor of the Student Union. 6) Schedule a nap every once in a while. Remember when pulling all nighter's made you cool and were super fun? Not anymore. Sleep is very important in college and naps have been proven to boost your creativity levels. 7) Get to know other residents in your hall. Let's face it; you're going to be living with them for the rest of the semester if not the rest of the year. Make new friends! Who knows? You just might find your new best friend. 8) This is college; not high school. Don't expect your best friends from high school to stick around. Your life is about to change. Don't be afraid of it. 9) STUDY!!!! Find a spot that isn't your bedroom to study. Grab some friends or other classmates and schedule a time to study for the next exam. There are plenty of different study rooms on campus. 10) Don't be afraid to go find the truth for yourself. Don't just take information first hand. Study up a little bit. 11) Get involved with organizations on campus. There are many different organizations here at ASU. Take advantage of them. 12) Know the resources that are available to you as a student. 13) Be able to take time for yourself away from your friends. Take time to step out of the world of college and go into your personal realm. Read a book. Go for a walk. Find a way to destress. It becomes very easy to succumb to the stress of college if you don't find a way to relax and take some personal time. 14) Know the times that the cafeteria is open. ESPECIALLY on the weekends. 15) Know the number for the University Police Department. 16) Pay attention to the required meetings and presentations. There is a reason that they are mandatory. It could save your life or the life of another. 17) College is the best 4 years of your life. You will grow as a person and you will find yourself. Enjoy it. Try something new. Do something out of your comfort zone. You will never have another chance like this. Don't waste it.

    In three sentences

    It is a great school with wonderful people. The diversity here is really amazing. However, the cafeteria food isn't always the best.

    Campus police patrol every day and night, and there is very little campus crime.

    A lot of GREEK life.

    Clubs and Activities

    GREEKS, and other on campus clubs and organizations always have activities going on.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for anybody. There is a group for everybody to fit into.

    It is expensive to come here, but the scholarships are good, and loans are easily available.

    What to do for fun

    For fun, the GREEKS always have big events going on, whether it is their registered parties, or events at the student union. Also, there are some places off campus in Jonesboro to go for fun. Of course, the sporting events are a big source of fun.

    Food and Dining

    The first few weeks of classes, the food is second to none in the cafeteria. However it tends to slack off later in the year. They do have several events, usually once a month, throughout the year with really good food. Also, the Acansa dining hall has a grill, a Mexican restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, and a Chic'fil'a.

    Dorm Life

    Residence life here at ASU has put together some amazing dorms and activities in which to participate in. Especially if you live in the upper classman dorms (Quads, Red Wolf den, etc...) or in the honors, ROTC, or STEM den, the living is very nice.

    Arkansas State has several top programs in the region and even nation. The rigor here can be overwhelming, but if you study, and go to class, you will learn a lot and be prepared for the workforce of whatever field you go into.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to class number 1. Get involved and go to events.

    In three sentences

    What to do for fun

    Since the college is located in a steadily growing city, there is an abundance of fun activities to do off campus. You can play bowling, go hiking, run in the park. There is a local movie theater that plays several of the latest movies.

    Food and Dining

    The food is questionable at time in the cafeteria. Some of the pasta dishes they serve are pretty descent as well as their break feast items they serve. However, I wonder about the hidden calories and the overall healthiness of the dishes that are served in the cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus helps you experience college life more than living off campus. As a freshman, you are required to live on campus for the first year unless your home residence is less than 45 miles away from the school.

    Academic Rigor

    This college is moderately hard depending upon the course and the teacher. Most freshman class are moderately easy except for the math courses and science courses. Overall as long as you do your work and study the right material, then you most likely shall pass.

    Tips for prospective students

    Each student should be prepared to study and know how to study. Each student should know their assignment deadlines and turn those assignments accordingly. Furthermore, students should not be afraid to ask for help. Make new friends at the college you will be attending. Your fellow students could be lifesavers if you need help figuring out the do's and don'ts of college.

    In three sentences

    Arkansas State University is a growing college in Jonesboro. The scenery on campus is gorgeous. The teachers at this college are very welcoming and opening to new students.

    Go to the Fawler Center and the Convocation Center. there are always games and events going on for all ages

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria is great when you first start. There is a giant buffet surrounding the area. You get tired of the same foods after a while though.

    Dorm Life

    If you are a freshman, the dorms are the worst. They are old, crowded, and overused. The higher your class, the better in on-campus living gets.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes don't get hard until about Junior year. Like stated earlier,the teachers are strict bu they care about their students. Study and everything will be fine!

    Tips for prospective students

    When signing up for classes, make sure to check which campus you are signing up for. There are multiple campuses and it would be bad if you paid for a class that's not even on the right campus!

    In three sentences

    Arkansas State is a great college for students who want to stay out of trouble. There are very strict teachers that care about each and every student's grade. However, there is virtually nothing around campus to indulge in.
