2 College Junior

Scholarships: Good luck. If you can find someone who is willing to help you might have a chance. I think my race, step-fathers financial situation and fact that I was an athlete made it a lot harder to find someone who cared for me the person not the numbers on the page.

4 College Junior

Computers: The rooms that had computers in them were nice. Not top of the line but definitely up to date. My biggest issue was that the library closed at 10pm. The wireless in the rooms was reliable and speedy. I think it is nice to have a computer but not a necessity. The labs in the classroom buildings were available fairly late, not all night, but allowed for a sufficient amount of time to get things done.

4 College Junior

Diversity: It was the most ethnic school I had been to. It reminds me of the Northeast, there are lots of asians. It is kind of cliquish. There are the video gamers, the southerners, the architects, athletes, and way more. I didn't get to engage with a large part of the on campus community. Coach was kind of an, whatever.

4 College Junior

Academics: Lots of opportunities. I didn't finish and only spent a single school year there. Most of my time was given to basketball and not academics so I'm not the right person to ask about this.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I stayed in the on campus apartments. They had been set aside as athletic apartments. They were some of the oldest on campus but were spacious. I had been into a few of the newer apartments and dorms that were on campus and these were updated with modern appliances and looked like they had been well made. I was always pleased with the space that was available. The bedrooms and common areas were fairly large. The kitchen was very functional and had a decent sized island in the middle that was real nice to have. We also had a laundry room in our apartment which was an awesome feature. The bathrooms were my only complaint in my apartment, it was super small and had not been well cared for over the years. The cost of my apartment seems pretty average. I paid about $3500 a semester for on campus housing which was a huge help in my life.

All of the on campus housing made a perimeter around the buildings with classrooms and labs in them. This made it real convenient to get to class. I couldn't expect the commute to have been any easier. Close by the apartments were a gymnasium and an on campus restaurant that stayed open late where students would meet up and hang out. The setting here was fresh and made for a cool hangout spot with music playing, flatscreen tvs, and a big fountain outside of it.

College Junior

Nightlife: I played basketball and if I spent time recreationally going out I did it in the city of Atlanta, not Marietta.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Its is really bad in the areas closest to school. If you are looking for cheap housing you will find it, but at the cost of safety, cleanliness, and a high quality of life. If you own a car and are willing to drive a bit then you can find a variety of nice places to live.

Health & Safety: There was has only been on instance that comes to mind. Thieves had been in the area after robbing a money truck and were possibly on campus. They were later found but not on campus. The message was spread loud and clear around campus, with the use of sirens and intercoms instructing students to stay inside and out of harms way. Other than that I had never had any sort of problem with things like theft, vandalism, violence, or other criminal activity. The buildings are clean and paths are well lit. A lot of construction has been done on campus in an attempt to modernize the university. I guess they did good enough because they have recently been dissolved into Kennesaw State University.

Athletics: There aren't a lot of athletics at SPSU, but I hear we're pretty decent at the ones we have.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: I go to a technical college so athletics is normally last on peoples mind. Though some participate and we do have sports teams, just no football.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am in the cheapest dorm on my campus, and though classes are a minute away, it still sucks to share a bathroom and bedroom. There is a lot of dramatic people in my dorm and quiet hours are not enforced.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The areas around campus have a higher crime rate but there is a police presence on campus that allows you to feel safe and secure.

Majors: There are a large number of different majors on campus for just about anyone and the majors are directed at giving hands on or practical applications that allow you to easily find a job after graduation.
