I am a freshman here at ASU. Overall, it is a great school filled with great spirits and motivation to succeed! However, I would like to see more emphasis on giving students more opportunity to help them grow as both a student and an adult entering the world of work.

Albany State University is truly a big family. Everyone is friendly and helpful. The staff treats you like you're their own. The professors work with you and make sure you get the best grade possible. And the food is great! There are plenty of groups and organizations for everyone, everybody is welcomed.
My experience with Albany State University is one of pride. I am so proud to call myself a Golden Ram! Albany state has such a diverse set of aspects that come along with it. On one hand, the education scene can be compared to that of a ivy league university. On the other hand, there are so many organizations and fun activities that know how to give your mind a break from your school work. With all this being said, I wouldn’t change anything about my university. Go Rams!
