Academics

As a member of the Texas Tech University System, Angelo State in San Angelo is "committed to providing big time opportunities with a small school atmosphere." Students commend the "committed professors teaching small classes that prepare students for their careers," noting that their instructors are "willing to help solve a problem or talk about the material." As one student explains, "The student body is extremely friendly and make[s] me feel like I am a part of a really big family." Students praise the pre-med, accounting, nursing, and physical therapy programs. The school has its share of traditional and non-traditional students, but the two seem to mix easily. A non-traditional student comments, "I was a little nervous about how I would be perceived...but I have been treated equally in relation to others on campus." As with any school, the quality of professors will run the gamut, but Angelo State students praise their "amazing" professors who "really care about their students' success." Students note, "You are an individual to them not just another number." One student goes so far as to credit a professor with a major personal academic change: "I have had the pleasure of being taught by some of the most amazing professors here. One was so influential I decided to change my major to biochemistry after taking the class for [non-majors]."

Student Body

At Angelo State, "Texas charm is prevalent on campus and...you will rarely meet a stranger." The school "has students from all over the world," but even the non-native Texans have "all got the kind Texan heart." In the classroom, Angelo State is "an amazingly diverse mixture of traditional and non-traditional students," and around campus, "everyone knows everyone and you become a big family." Says one psychology major, "Angelo State is very friendly and welcoming yet highly conservative." Underscoring the tight-knit community feeling of the school, one business administration major says, "Everyone has a different story on why they are earning a degree. Some come from wealthy families while others are obtaining loans just to get through, but together we are RamFam." It's hard to be a stranger on the Angelo State campus, as one student gushes: "Everyone on campus is so friendly and will do anything they can to help someone who is lost or new to school. There are so many opportunities to meet people and make long lasting friendships and connections."

Campus Life

Even though San Angelo is a small town, students say it "offers different things to do in your free time," including "a bowling alley, movie theatre and many outdoor adventure activities." The school owns "a lake facility [where] students may rent kayaks, bikes and [there are] picnic facilities." There's always something happening on campus, according to students, like "mixers, game nights, karaoke, poetry readings," or "some kind of exhibition or event going on in the University Center." Intramural sports are popular, as are intercollegiate ones. Angelo State is a Division II school and cheering on the Rams during various seasons and sports is a highlight. As one student notes, "You can always find things to [do], especially when there's a game." That's not to say that students aren't serious about their studies. "I go to class in the mornings and go to work in the evenings and then come straight home study and get ready for class the next day," says one public relations major. Others see Greek life as a way to be "involved on campus," and some even say "a bigger Greek life would make the school just that much better." There are so many different activities on campus, from clubs to volunteer organizations, that "you have to try really hard to not become involved at this school."
