Arkansas State University Reviews

As a recent student at Astate, being from the North posed some interesting obstacles for me to overcome. When I first moved to Jonesboro, I was disappointingly underwhelmed. However, after living in Jonesboro for five years, working at local shops and attending classes year round, I am grateful for the opportunity to attend such a great university. Although the university stands strong in classical southern ideations, the new wave of professors and students are opening up little Jonesboro to a modern and exciting future.

And as always, there is no parking on campus. Nothing outside the norm of any other university!

Coming to Arkansas State University, I was immediately drawn in by the diversity, and the social life on campus. Coming to this campus I was able to get involved in Greek life, where I have met some of the best girls! I was also able to get involved in Student Activities Board and let my voice be heard on campus. Academic wise, you will meet some of the most caring, and respectful professors and advisors ever. They are there whenever you need them, and encourage you to go for anything you dream of doing in your career.
I absolutely love Astate! Coming from high school I wasn't expecting much, as every other kid, I hated school. But when I started attending the university, it changed. I loved the freedom and openness of the college life. I've attended so many sports events, club events, etc. And I've pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I've even made many new friends. I would definitely recommend for people to attend school here.
