Academics: The library is open 24 hours. SNAP will drive you home at night.

5 College Freshman

Academics: It is great, there are many opportunities available. Professors are willing to help guide every student to strive to be the best. Study abroad choices are probably the best available options, and are a great opportunity.

A major advantage of Georgia College and State University is the small class sizes, boasting a 17-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio. With this, professors are able to give more of their time to each student; professors will know you by name instead of simply your student ID number. All professors have office hours in which you can stop by and ask questions or ask for advice on classes. GCSU prides itself in having professors who love what they are doing, with nearly 80 percent of these professors having Ph.D.s from top universities. There are four colleges—arts and sciences, business, education, and health sciences—with more than 40 majors within the four.

GCSU also offers double majors, dual degrees, honors programs, internships, and evening courses. The pre-professional programs offered are: pre-law, pre-medicine, pre-veterinary science, pre-pharmacy, pre-dentistry, pre-optometry, pre-forestry, pre-engineering, pre-occupational therapy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-physician assistant. Several graduate programs are offered, as well. At Georgia College and State University, you are guaranteed a one-of-a-kind learning experience with professors who want nothing more than to see you succeed in the classroom and the real world.

Online Courses
There are usually not many online classes offered during regular semesters, but a larger variety is offered during the summer. Summer online classes can either be in June, July, or full summer. Most classes do not require you to be online daily, which is a huge plus during the busy summer months.

Tips to Succeed
  • Be able to manage your time. You have a lot more free time in college; it is up to you to decide how you spend it.
  • Be on time for class, meetings, presentations-anything and everything. There is nothing more disrespectful than being late!
  • Be sociable and make lots of different friends!
  • Communicate often with your professors; they have open-door policies for a reason!
  • Sit on Front Campus at least once a week, and de-stress and enjoy your time there!
  • Skipping a class will seriously make your grade suffer, and yes, your professor will notice!
  • Use the learning center often-it's free for students!
