4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like this place. I look forward to spending a couple of years here. I plan on TAing for the Chem department. I think its a great school if you want to learn an applicable skill for a price well below GSU or Tech. I wish I had come here my first go around in college.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Never had a poor experience. Normal school prices. 4-8 dollars a meal depending on how much you care about your health.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It was easy for me. No Pell or Hope because I have a bachelors already. It's always easy to get student loans. Just fill out a FAFSA and do your loan counseling. BOOM. Money...

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have heard positive things, but don't interact with Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I've had very few run ins with this particular topic, so I suppose that means I'm A) Doing a good job of it, or B) Things are pretty lax. I try to keep out of trouble. It does seem pretty easy to start an organization, though. Theres like 200.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Software Engineering at SPSU is not easy by all accounts. The professors seems to really care whether youre doing well though. The facilities are state of the art and the post degree job prospects look great.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There's a huge variety of majors at SPSU at a very affordable price by comparison to other Atlanta schools. There are co-op and internship options for the many engineering majors. The professors seem interested in the success of their students and the curriculum is well varied within the majors. For example, Computer science has an applied track as well as Software Engineering and IT. The application process was quick and easy (although I am good at paperwork).

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Some of nearby areas are considered less than safe (Frankling Rd.), but its not actually that bad. Powers Ferry, Delk, and Cobb all have apartments and houses for rent.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: After the merger with Kennesaw the lack of varsity sports will be changing. The rec center is pretty well set up.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have yet to hear of any issues on campus. Of course, you never know what people hide.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Its about 80/20 mail to female. Although everyone I've met thus far has been very friendly.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: With Marietta square and diner nearby (pricey), as well as T-Bell, Krystal (cheap), and a number of other fast food (mid) places within driving distance. It's pretty good...as long as you aren't trying to eat too healthily of course.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It's pretty easy to get into the Architecture since there are low application rates and by the end of your second year, it would have been reduced down to a much smaller group of dedicated arch. students due to strict teaching and time consuming work.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It's harder than most, especially early on, as apposed to other majors starting off easier and getting harder over time. But it's also impressive and has quality instruction.

College Sophomore

Majors: I don't know if we have internships, but we do have student teaching training I think, bu I'm unfamiliar with it.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I like my major, it's one of the best in the university and in Georgia. It can be VERY annoying sometimes but overall it's good and quite diverse.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: I wouldn't have said this if the I hadn't gotten so many compliments and accolades from outside visitors and teachers that have stated how great our facilities are. While many of the buildings are a bit dated (70's) the facilities stay up-to-date. I've personally seen multiple practicing architects say our Arch. facilities are abundant and even better than their colleges, and they went to MIT. We are privileged to have them.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Students will have fun anywhere pretty much. There aren't really many situations of "destructive fun" but it can be a bit boring if you 1) live on campus with no car or can't go home on the weekend OR 2) attend from out of state or are an international student.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my time here so far and while it may not be as great as other colleges socially, it has been growing for the better for so long and with the merger with KSU, there will bee more changes, some for the better and some for the worst.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It's quite fair. Even when you think there's a lax RA who doesn't care, they will take necessary actions when they need to. Though, the parking student police can be a bit too strict, but maybe that's a necessity.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: With the smaller amount of students, acceptance into Greek life is pretty easy if you have even a modicum of dedication. They're small and many people know about them and may be in one (or two). There aren't that many of course but the options are good enough in my opinion unless you're looking for a specific organization. There are honorary Greeks, African-American Greeks (though extremely small until the merger), and even a co-ed professional architecture fraternity.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I'm not sure how to rate this, but I do know that women do get treated a bit differently than en here because there are only 20% of them, but overall it's fine I guess.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I almost never eat out since I don't have a car, but I can always find something that I will enjoy when I do even if it's something simple

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The surrounding area is meh. It's better than it was 20 years ago and its getting better, but its an awkward transition zone between Atlanta and Alpharetta/Roswell with only car dealerships and Wal-Marts/general shopping and fast food. Marietta Square is nearby, but without a car, it's inaccessible and it's mostly closed at night. Note: a trolley does take students without cars to and from Marietta Square and Wal-Mart plaza every Thursday.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's hard to explain but it's food. It's sustenance. but many people I know complain on a daily basis and while management is shifted and food options/quality rises and falls it's okay at best on average.
