What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
Staying focused and taking advantage to help offered in studys is a great way to get ahead
Cassidy from Jonesboro, AR
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.
Ryan from Highland, AR
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.
Brooke from Cave City, AR
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.
Samantha from Jonesboro, AR
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.
Kaouthar from State University, AR
Getting involved is really important, because Jonesboro doesn't have much to do. Greek life, sports, and clubs are great ways to meet friends that can help you study or go party with! Also, stay away from the pizza. It looks inviting, but it usually isn't.
Allison from Conway, AR
A-state is not a huge party school because the main focus is education. Therefore, distractions are limited in that aspect and all parties are monitored by police to ensure the safety of the students. There are a lot of organizations for students to get involved in. They have really helped me come out of my shell and I'm grateful for the various opportunities. Everyone on campus is friendly. It's like we are all one big family. It doesn't matter where you are on campus, when you pass someone they greet you and smile whether it be a student or a faculty member. That is my favorite thing about my school.
