Student Reviews and Ratings for Athens State University
Classically historic campus. 100+ year old buildings some recently renovated with others planned for renovation. The state of Alabama is blessed with older historic colleges and this one is exception.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™

I returned to college after more than twenty years. I was very nervous about being able to complete my dream of a degree. Athens State University was definitely the best option for me. The small school atmosphere and attention shown from professors was the greatest I have seen. The amount of knowledge I gained has me prepared to face the job market. The online program helped me graduate twice as fast. I am proud to be an alumni and "Highly" recommend Athens State University.Scott Hatton Class of 2013Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
Athens is a great university. The faculty is great. A lot of them do their best to help you succeed, and love to use outside sources in their teaching to get a real world feel and prepare you for your future. The only issue is the very low amount of student activities. This is mainly due to them not having sporting teams, and to because they have a lot of distant learning students. Their positives out weigh there negatives greatly though.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
It's a pretty good school. Unlike many other places the teachers generally care about you as a study and want you to do well. And the staff is very efficient at getting things processed in a timely matter.The only thing I do not care for about the school is that it lacks any type of young student presence but if you are just looking for a reasonable education with convenient schedules it's a great choice.Source of the review: Google Places, Google Maps™
