Adams State University Reviews
Review Adams State University
Varsity sports are not as big as they would be at Colorado University in Boulder. It is fun to attend an event with friends and cheer on the home team though! I enjoy going to the basketball games because of the atmosphere and watching the boys or girls try their hardest. It is also enjoyable when our team is winning, as it would be for any other team as well! The student section does not really beat that of Boulder or Fort Collins. For me personally I enjoy the small feel of the sport part of college and honestly don't have any complaints!
I do like that it is a smaller university. I like that I can actually feel like I can connect to the professor in some way. I prefer smaller classes. It's a pretty campus, and it was very convenient for me. However, in my opinion the university seems disorganized, both with the in person classes and the online classes. I took a history class that I thought was a GED but it wasn't, and didn't find that out until I was almost done with the class. So now I have a history credit that I probably won't need. It was hard getting a solid answer from the professors or the people working at the student union building. The professors I had were all good though. I didn't have one that I necessarily didn't like.
Adams State has awesome facilities for every sport. We have a weight room for athletes that could compete with any weight room in the country! Football has a knew stadium, there is a new pool, we have a pressurized bubble for track athletes to simulate competing at different altitudes. Sports are very important on campus and the school administrators recognize that.
