I am a few weeks from graduation, and looking back at my time spent at ASU, I have learned so much. Having only lived in northeast Arkansas for about 10 years, I thought going to school a few miles down the road would be just like high school, and for a while it was. After commuting my first semester, I transfered to another school. It wasn't until then that I realized that ASU wasn't that bad. In fact, I really missed it. I moved back and lived in the dorms and made several great friends.

Arkansas State is very much into the Greek system, but it is also possible to have a social life and not be Greek. The campus is very laid-back and there are lots of different types of people. The downside of that is there seems to be a strong division between blacks and whites. Some of the infrastructure needs to be rebuilt, but they are working on that. A lot of students complained about fees and tuition but honestly, it's no more expensive than any other school. Sure, you have your fair share of rednecks and apathetic students. Arkansas can seem boring if you come from a larger city; no school is perfect, but if you are hard-driving and have a desire to excel, you can use this to your advantage. Lots of opportunities with little competition are available for students if they just look for them.

I myself have been very impressed by the faculty. As a marketing major, I have never had problems accessing any professors and they are all very encouraging and willing to help. In fact, students who drop by during office hours to talk about the class, their grades, or to ask for help usually do the best. The majority of professors are PhD's who have had experience in the business world; thus, they are able to relay their experiences to students.

I feel like I have gotten a solid business education and am ready for the "real" world. I highly recommend ASU to students who can overlook its faults and dig deep to find the gems that will unlock the door to your success.
