Overall Rating

ASU has one of the best education programs in alabama. The: school is to my opinion the most historical black college. Our school is ranked in top twenty party schools but education is always first. The people are friendly and classes are more intrusting than average. The cafe is the best thing on campus for now. The new student union will be done up coming spring. If your looking for a good education and want to live a fun college life come to STATE.

Overall Rating

Personally, I think ASU is a great school to attend to further your education. Although the telephone service isn't that great, the school itself is wonderful.
