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!

I began at Athens State in the summer of 2016 after taking a year off. This has been a wonderful few months. I have learned so much about my major,information assurance. The wonderful professors online have taken the time to help, support, and lead me through a new learning experience. The only thing that I would like to see change is more activities online based. I live pretty far away and cannot physically be involved there. Regardless, I have had a wonderful experience and I urge anyone contemplating a Bachelor's degree to apply and begin!
Athens State University's English department fosters a safe learning environment while inspiring creativity and innovation in cultivating writing. The faculty and staff are extremely helpful in advising, financial aid opportunity, and career expectations. For the best education for the price, go to ASU.
