Athens State University Reviews
I have loved being a student at Athens State! I earned a bachelor's degree in Business Management with a minor in Marketing. I felt confident in finding a job in my career field after graduation, and I did just that! Career services does a great job of helping students find internships and opportunities to stand out from other graduates. All the faculty and staff were incredibly helpful. There are many opportunities to join activities around campus. The Student Government Association makes a huge effort to increase student life on campus. Athens State is an affordable and flexible option, which is why it's great for students who want to work while getting their degree. I will forever be grateful for my time at Athens State. Go bears!
The online classes were very well laid out. The instructors provided feedback and graded my assignments on time. I took most of my classes online. I love online classes!
It was an overall good experience. It would be nice if the Student Success Coaches would tell you beforehand about possible prerequisite courses before changing majors. The online classes are good, the price is higher than the tuition on campus though.
