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.
Review Albany State University
Many of my peers that graduated from my program are close friends of mine. Between these students and professors I feel well equipped to handle any and everything in my future career. Any Alumni that I meet from here has always embraced me with a warm greeting and extended a helping hand in any endeavor that I wanted to pursue. Career services, though underrated, is a fantastic aid to use!
My overall experience here at Albany State University has been phenomenal. With the campus not being very big makes campus life better as well. You can actually walk around and remember people's names and feel like a family. The best part that I like about Albany State is the classroom sizes. The largest classes I've been in was roughly forty students. That's a perfect size. The classroom isn't very crowded, and you can actually form a relationship with your teacher. Compared to your bigger schools like the University of Georgia, where you mat have one hundred students in an auditorium with one teacher. It's nearly impossible for that one teacher to remember every student name, or if you're like me, it'll be very hard to learn in an environment like that.
