Albany State University Reviews
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!
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.

Being an incoming freshman almost three years ago, I just knew college would be everything I imagined it be. Albany State University gave me a great HBCU experience each year. I am now a junior and I still love my school very much. However, every place has its downsides. I would like to change how things are organized and set up at school. It can get a little hectic from time to time!
