3 College Junior

Majors: Never had an internship but from what i hear its a decent job.

3 College Junior

Majors: I had to pass the entry level course. Not alot of course work but very hard grading and long papers

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: They really work with you to create a living space that youll enjoy

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off campus and have relatively no experience with off campus housing

5 College Junior

Facilities: Student life is amazing. There are always activities and events for students with alot of diversity.

5 College Junior

Academics: I enjoy being a history major. I get alot of attention from my professors and great assistance from librarians.

5 College Junior

Academics: The work load is alot but it is intended to help and push you to succeed

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food is nothing special. It gets the job done.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The places are just too expensive. Meal plans are also too expensive, averaging out to like eight dollars a meal. It is cheapest to bring as many snacks as possible to last me through classes so I rarely may need to buy starbucks or something small.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not enough healthy options. Many are not open early enough or stay open late enough with their dining rooms-only their drive-thrus. I do not know of any places that give student discounts.

College Junior

Facilities: Facilities need to show their hours better-they often close early without giving much notice, etc.

3 College Junior

Facilities: People need to stop going to the library to just be loud and play around. There are often not enough computers and space as it is.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There needs to be more political representation on campus.

4 College Junior

Majors: You have to know what classes and times you are needing before you meet with your advisor. Know questions that you need answered before you are advised. Keep up with your own checklists.

3 College Junior

Majors: Few available classes/times/teachers in the program means it is likely you will have the same teacher at least once. This is unfortunate when you dislike them, they clearly have favorite students, grade unfairly towards everyone else, etc. They need to offer more courses each semester and have more than one of them.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: You can tell who hangs out with who. The 'scene' is very similar to high school. Athletes and their girls dress similarly, goths and rockers, rednecks, nerds, ghetto girls, bigger girls that try and cover up, older students that are trying to look cool but look far from, quiet guys that hang by themselves.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: Cops do not really do anything but walk around and talk to each other. Students are not educated enough about what to do in an assault situation or where to go after words, how to deal with trauma, or how to handle a friend that has gone through the experience.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is no public transportation system and there needs to be. The main mall has few nice stores. There are not any major crimes really such as murder; only small robberies, store thefts and drug related crimes typically. There are not really any events about culture, but you can see a big divide amongst races at times. Football is a big deal in Valdosta too.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The first almost year at VSU I lived off campus about a mile from school. Due to many personal and financial reasons I moved back home with my parents, which is about twenty minutes from campus. I have been with them since, and it is much easier to help them with the bills, etc.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Too much focus is placed on football and sometimes other popular sports, keeping them in shape and taken care of. There is not enough focus on getting all of the students to be worried about their health and go to the campus gym. The campus gym can be very intimidating when full of athletes, as they already have other places they can work out. Average overweight and out of shape students do not really have any other options and often do not want to go to the gym for some reasons like being watched.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is lots of diversity on campus. Its hard to describe it. People recognize the diversity very well in Valdosta and it a big part of the school's make up. We are encouraged greatly to throw ourselves within it and its been great. Everyone and anyone is accepted here.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is a thriving town known as title town. This is because the college, high school and middle school all hold some type of sports championship title. There are plenty of stores all over the place and lots of restaurant options. Students get some type of discount at almost every location around which is fantastic for us broke college students. The University is located literally five minutes away from downtown- the most gorgeous part of town. The atmosphere is Valdosta is very lively.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are plenty of people in my major. The psychology program at Valdosta is well operating and growing rapidly. I will note that it is a female heavy major, but it is still one of diverse minds. The workload does come off as somewhat heavy, but if you truly enjoy psych, this is something that you will not mind in the slightest. The building is fantastic and one of the prettiest on Campus which is a nice bonus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics have been pretty good. All of the professors actually know what they are talking about and are very involved. Help is there, all you have to do is ask. The registration process can be easy if you make a couple of ideal schedule ahead of time and have had advisement with your advisor weeks in advance. It happens online at seven in the morning so GET UP. The library is a great place to study and its huge. You can choose from cozy sitting areas, desks, and study rooms. The Student Union (The U) is also a popular place to study if you don't mind some added background noise. Plus every dorm has a couple study rooms and a classroom so there are plenty of options outside of your own dorm.

Greek Life: Not a part of Greek life so I can't really say for sure how well or how awful it is.
