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

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.
