A-State is an okay school overall. Personally, I’ve had some crappy experiences, especially with housing and the dining hall. The professors are pretty good tho and academic wise I’d say the school is pretty good.
Housing is terrible. Maintenance is also absolutely no help. I’ve also heard negative things ab the other housing options. The cafeteria also sucks. The food is always flavorless and if you’re not in there at the exact times they serve food you don’t get to eat.
I like how the college feels like a small little community even though it is in a big city. Everyone is willing to help with anything you need help with or they will send you to someone who can help.
Some of the dining hall food isn’t very good but they give you other options like chick fil a.
There are so many opportunities for students to be involved with campus activities. The food is really great, whether it be from the dining hall or the other places where you can get food. Most of the professors are also great and will work with you.
My only complaint would be that putting in a maintenance request has always been a waste of time because they don’t really fix anything. I also had issues every year while selecting housing, but that is always fixed immediately.
I loved every minute of my time at Arkansas State University. I met so many amazing students and faculty members during my time there. I was very involved as the university provided plenty of opportunities to explore myself through student organizations and activities.
The only thing I would change about Arkansas State is where its focus lies. Academia should be first priority; however, the sports seemed to benefit the most from grants and donations given to the school. There were many accommodations made for student-athletes but not the students themselves. If you want a school that is sport-oriented this is a great place. However, if you desire a top-tier education, there are better options out there.
I like that the freshman dorm halls are close to everything on campus, and how easy the campus is to navigate after doing so for a week or two. The staff is very friendly as well.
Some professors are very difficult to learn from, but that is just due to the way that I learn.
So inclusive! Genuinely a great place to pursue an undergraduate degree! Get involved on campus and you won't regret it!
Some of the administrative loopholes that you are forced to jump through are stressful and tedious.
