My experience here at Carl Albert State College has been very smooth. I attended the Sallisaw campus as a concurrent student and then decided to go to the main campus to advance my education once I graduated from high school. This is currently my second semester here and I am loving it! It is a very relaxing and otherwise calm environment. There aren't a lot of noise complaints or safety issues with the campus. It's a nice first step for anyone wanting to continue their education out of high school.

Very affordable tuition. The teachers are very friendly and helpful. I believe the only thing it could potentially be improved is the book store. They buy the books back for a minimum amount and re-sell them at a very high price. They should buy them buy with the purpose of helping the students, instead of making money of the students.
I loved that I could be online, on campus, or both. It made being a single mom, full time employee, and student so much easier. The teachers are extremely helpful and are quick to respond and make sure the student is taken care of any way possible. The tuition is so affordable. And the food is awesome and cheap as well. They are really set up in a way that benefits us as a student.
