Adams State University Reviews
Adams State University is a forward-thinking and progressive institution placed in a family-friendly neighborhood. The people that inhabit Adams are very warm beings and the professors are truly helpful and compassionate. As an athlete, the school does a good job of taking good care of us but not placing us above the other students. Though based in a small town, Adams is a great institution for any student looking to further the progression of their dreams and goals for numerous reasons!
I currently do not take classes in the University of Adams State, but I have been taking concurrent enrollment classes with them since my junior year in high school. I am pretty pleased with the concurrent enrollment classes I've taken and currently taking. I've visited the campus multiple times since I only live about 35 miles from the campus. I've visited it during school field trips and during exams for my concurrent enrollment classes. I can say that most of what they have is pretty nice. A few of the buildings could be updated. Many of my friends attend college there and most of them seemed pretty pleased with their college experience.
Just got out of the military last May 2017 and going to college for the first time at this school has been going great. The teachers are very understanding of my obligations as being in the Army Reserves and they are always there if one needs help or is struggling in the class. They are very helpful and have a lot to offer, especially workshops for my major. I do hope that students here should take advantage of the services offered in this school, may it be for tutoring, workshops, resume-writing classes,work-study jobs, and they even help students in need of food.
