Albany State University is a great HBCU! From freshman orientation to move-in day, I've always felt as if I were in good hands. The housing staff, professors, and school staff are all very helpful, friendly, and family oriented! Professors are very thorough with lectures, learning material, and what is expected. Study groups are a plus! With the awesome interaction between peers and countless ways of communication, study groups are highly encouraged at ASU, and proven effective! Also, there are many tutoring sessions. There is no reason students should fail. Parties are awesome and anything to imagine! Campus life is amazing; however, some greek organizations are not on the yard. I love my HBCU and will definitely recommend to anyone to attend.

Albany State University gave me the foundation for my success. Everything I have accomplished I owe to Albany State University. Not only did I depart ASU with a college degree but a Commission in the US Army as well. ASU gave me the foundation to earn both a master's degree and a doctoral degree. After teaching for 24 years as a college professor I am now doing postdoctoral work at Princeton (PTS). I have traveled the world and enjoyed occupying spaces that otherwise would have been unimaginable had it not been for the foundation laid at Albany State University! I am and will forever be indebted to ASU.

Albany State is the perfect example of a school with everything! There are many professors that wish to see the students do well. They work diligently and effectively to help students that may be struggling. Apart from academics, the "fun-side" of ASU is that there is always something to do. Students are constantly interacting with one another in the game rooms, cafeteria, and even on the yard. Not to mention, ASU is an HBCU and is UNSINKABLE! I think the food could be a little bit better, but I definitely can NOT miss the fried chicken on Wednesdays. It's the absolute best.
