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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.

Angelo State University is a safe and fun enviorment for new freshman. All classes are close and easy to understand. Everyone you meet is super nice and very friendly.
Tips for prospective students
All new prospective students should be super excited to come to Angelo State University because all students and faculty act like family.
Academic Rigor
All classes are small just like high school, so all your teachers will be able to remember your name and you can always go to your professor. It has its own ranch and great outside activities.
Dorm Life
The freshman enviorment is amazing. all the residential assistants try to make the dorms homely as possible. They always have amazing activies in the lobby to make everyone comfy as possible.
Food and Dining
Cafe food is pretty good. You can always choose from different choices and there is also fast food resturants close to the campus if you would rather have fast food.
What to do for fun
They always have small parties in the dorms. They have little get togethers for studyimg that always become fun. The biggest thimng we do for fun is go to the football games. Angelo State is a very school spirited campus.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There is a tree covered in gum that students uise to put their gum only because it brings good luck.
Greek Life
Greek life is always involved in the community and campus.
Campus Safety
They have angelo state police and also have emergency poles where in any danger you can press and police will come to your aid.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Great for these types of students
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!

Am learning a lot
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.
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy being here the dorms are close together so there is always someone new to meet or talk to. The lake and river give the students a little get a way from constant class work.
Bang for the buck
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.
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.
Great for these types of students
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.

Angelo State University is absolutely amazing! It is a place you can call home without hesitation. ASU is for sure, a five star school to me.
Tips for prospective students
Do not be scared to interact. With all of the different activities, it's impossible to have nothing to do. Be open to opportunities as me overall, have fun.
Academic Rigor
Great college experience with the help you need in every direction. With the math lab, writing center, or just regular study groups, there is help everywhere.
Dorm Life
I live in concho hall and its nice. But sign up in time and go to plaza verde or centennial.
Food and Dining
Great food and nice gooks. Mexican, american, and even italian with pizza and pastas, there's always places to choose from.

Lots of different intermural clubs and sports. Greek life and also religious groups always hosting food events or just socials to meet new people.
Bang for the buck

Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Nothing weird just have fun and be yourself with who you want to be.
Clubs and Activities
I am in the guys soccer club and it's great to travel around texas but still having time for all of my classes and homework.
Greek Life
Don't really accosiate much with the greek life but we do have very professional groups her at ASU and many to choose from.

Police officers always roaming around checking up on things and they also even offer self defense classes at the beginning of the school year to know what to do in serious times.

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.
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.
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.
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!
Great for these types of students
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
Great for these types of students
Any type of student will fit in here. I hear the biology and math programs are pretty good.

Angelo State University is a great up and coming university in Texas. This town includes and exceeds wonderful Southern hospitality and everyone is interested in seeing each student succeed. Overall it is a wonderful school and is making headway in becoming one of the best in Texas!
Tips for prospective students
Make sure to tour before you come! The weather here is crazy and just one day will show you that. Not only does one day show you the weather, but it emphasizes on the great people and their efforts to help you do whatever it is you plan on doing!
Academic Rigor
Classes are tuned for the average bear. Not too many extremely hard classes in the beginning, but as is typical, the major courses require the most effort.
Dorm Life
Angelo's dorm life is one of the best in the country! No cinder block walls to be found on this campus. In addition to the best rooms, there is always something being put on by either the RAs or the housing department itself to entertain residents or even promote good study habits!
Food and Dining
Angelo only has three areas to eat on the meal plan. The UC is typically the best due to the fast food available, while Roscoe's is not too far behind with their burgers. The other one, the cafe, is on the other end of mediocre. They serve a wide variety, but its not always the best. But what do you expect from a cafeteria?
What to do for fun
San Angelo may be on the smaller end of the spectrum, but they offer a quiet a few things to do. There is a lake in town, which ASU owns a house on and is open in the warmer parts of the year with kayaks and volleyball courts. Also, there are cheap nights for movies occasionally and even better student discounts at the bowling alley. There is also a place where you can go to play putt putt, roller blade, play laser tag, or some arcade games for a reasonable price.
Bang for the buck
Angelo State offers many scholarships that are relatively easy to obtain, so you are more than likely going to spend less than anywhere else!
Campus Safety
Campus safety is out of this world! Campus Police are at each student's disposal if needed and can be found just about everywhere on campus. Not only are the police helpful, but there are several emergency phones on campus as well.

I love ASU!! There are is quite a variety of organizations you can join. If you decide to come to ASU, you will not regret it.
Tips for prospective students
When making your class schedule got to www.ratemyprofessor.com. In addition, do not over do your hours. You will stress out and probably have a meltdown.
Academic Rigor
It really depends on the professor you get. Some are laid back and really nice. On the other hand, some are tough and their lecture does not match the test or homework.
Dorm Life
So far dorm life is good. It is my second semester here at ASU, but I did not live in the dorms my first semester.
Food and Dining
Food is great. You have a large variety of foods down at the UC. There is also a cafeteria and Roscoe's Den.
What to do for fun
Make friends and go out. If you cannot go out or don't have a car, there are plenty of things to do on campus. You can go to the gym or hang out at the UC and play pool. However, San Angelo has many great places to go with friends. On the weekends you can go to Midnight Rodeo and listen to some awesome artists they have. You can also go to the mall and movies.
Bang for the buck
College is college, so it's going to be expensive. However, if you play your cards right you can get through college well off.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
One strange tradition is to put your gum on the Gum Tree next to the library. People do this mostly during finals. It is said it gives you luck to pass your finals.
Great for these types of students
There is an organization on this campus for EVERYONE! Also, to the people that love the gym, you have the REC center.
Clubs and Activities
There is an club on this campus for EVERYONE! There are also many activities you can do. For one, UCPC holds movie days and plan Rambunctious Weekend. Rambunctious Weekend is so much fun! They rent inflatable bounce houses or obstacle courses. There is a DJ that will play music throughout the entire event.
Campus Safety
Everywhere you go there will always be an ASU police officer.
