3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have had some harassment issues from campus security, as a minority student. I have been questioned about my being a student, I have been told to leave public places for no apparent reason, and have been pulled over multiple times for very questionable reasons.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: It is a small town, but it is comfortable and peaceful. I am a small-town type of person, so it fits just fine. There a plenty of places to go and things to do- bowling, skating, shopping, restaurants, clubs, etc.

4 College Senior

Majors: The programs here are very tight-knit, with professors and advisors who remember your name, face, and situations. They are open to help at even moment's notice.

4 College Senior

Majors: Very intimate setting, being that it is a relatively new program (Music Therapy). However, the curriculum requires a very heavy class load, 8-10 classes a semester, not including summer/online classes. The internship opportunities are also very scarce within this field. However, it is an overall wonderful program with excellent staff.

Weather: The weather here, like most weather in Georgia, is kind of crazy. It can be extremely hot one day, and later that day a thunderstorm can come.

Campus Dining: The Max has its good and not so good days. Overall though, the staff are extremely courteous and they work hard to prepare satisfactory meals. WOW Cafe has excellent food and service, as well as Chik-Fil-a and Subway. The prices are relatively cheap, and they are all either on campus or very close.

Greek Life: As a member of two Greek organizations, I feel that Greek life is extremely beneficial to the overall production and atmosphere of campus. Many of the social, fundraising, and educational student-led events are hosted by the greek organizations here on campus. Without these organizations, the campus would not be as lively, or as productive. Students in Greek organizations are also known to have higher work ethics, are more pleasant to be around, and have higher overall GPAs.

Campus Housing: Other than residents treating the dorms and village apartments poorly, living on campus is not too bad of a situation.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Students here support athletics, both varsity and intramurals pretty heavily. The events are usually packed, and the students share news and info about them on social websites (Facebook, twitter, instagram, etc) very frequently. Due to my class and work schedule, I don't get to participate very often in campus activities, but the athletic events are things that I try especially hard to support.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The football program needs more fan support and athletic facilities.

If you ask any student about their experience at GCSU, it is sure to be a positive one. If they had to choose Georgia College and State University all over again, most students would make the same decision. You are never going to feel like a number at the University, and the professors treat students with respect and honesty. The campus is absolutely beautiful, and having almost everything within walking distance is a major benefit. Plus, nightlife is not limited to upperclassman students, as you only have to be 18 to get into any of the bars downtown (still 21 to drink, though). 

Georgia College does a great job of preparing students for the “real world” through high-level classes, mock interviews, career fairs, and all of the other various opportunities the University Career Center offers. Choosing GCSU guarantees a small-town feel, a variety of new friendships, opportunities to join more than 160 organizations, and an overall great college experience.
