Adams State University Reviews
I met so many incredible people at Adams State. I had the opportunity to form wonderful relationships with my professors and peers alike. As a huge sport's fan, I would have loved to have seen a larger excitement around the athletics, although National Champs in track and cross-country are an amazing accomplishment!
As an incoming freshman, Adams State has been so welcoming! I was able to complete the registration process so easily because of all the help that was offered. I highly recommend Adams State to anyone who wants a small school experience with the family feel.
Adams State University is a college that has so much to offer! Not only is this school located in one of the prettiest places in the state, but the school itself will set anyone up for success! Adams offers almost every major one can think of, the class sizes are small allowing for students to make personal connections with professors and peers, and there are so many campus clubs and organizations to Vern involved with!
