I didn't quite get to attend as many events as I wanted but there are always activities for students to participate in. Between bonfires, board game nights in the library, special crab leg buffets in the caf., capture the glowstick outside some nights, the awesome gym w/every workout machine you can think of, and the school's sports games, there is plenty to stay entertained after you finish your schoolwork! The teachers are understanding and work with anyone who applies themselves.

When I toured there I loved it! The students just seemed in their element. The whole school just felt like me, I like the dorm set up, the classroom sizes, and just the atmosphere in general.

AState has all of the qualities that you look for in a great school and then adds some. It has great professors and faculty and everyone is like a family. I have enjoyed my years there and can't wait to continue on.
