4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have a very well trained safety services staff that makes me feel safe. Their response time to emergencies is great from what I've seen through the drills that take place throughout the semester.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the professors that I've had are amazing. Of course you're bound to get a few that aren't very good but you'll still learn what you need to in order to pass the class and exit the semester with knowledge on that subject.

Campus Housing: I live in the only dorm directly on campus so it's really quick and easy to get to classes. All the residents are super friendly and if something is lost it always gets returned to the owner. I'm not afraid of leaving items in the community room if I have to run back to my dorm either because I trust no one will mess with it or take anything.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Georgia College students have a lot of school pride.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is dedicated to helping its students.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public safety is always roaming around campus making sure that everyone is safe and doing the right things. We also have regular police that drive through campus that help maintain the great security we have on campus

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living on campus is great, because you are always in the loop with activities that are going on on campus, you are closer to classes and it is proven that you do better in school while living on campus. It is nice that the dorms have ice and vending machines and I love that they have community rooms to study in and also a big one on the first floor that has a ping pong table and a pool table. They also have a community kitchen that you can use!..Everyone gets a long with others and usually there is no issues. Finding a roommate is made easier with the roommate matcher online.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think the Greek life here is great. A lot of people are involved in greek life if you don't play in a sport. It seems like they all get along with one another and they all have a good time. There are plenty of Greek affiliations and there are ones being added each year! I think non-Greeks are fine with the Greeks. Like I said earlier in the survey, everyone likes everyone and there has never been an issue.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I play basketball here and it seems like there is not as much involvement with the student body as there should be. Most of the students that come to the games are students that have friends on the team. I think the school should announce the games more publicly, not only on campus, but throughout the community.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I Love going to Georgia College & State. You get the whole college experience even though it is not the biggest school. Everyone on campus is friendly to one another and you can talk to everyone. The teachers are approachable and are willing to help you get to where you want to be! The hours of the different study areas allow you to be able to study whenever you want. Social life is great and it definitely is not hard to meet someone new! I wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Students are well involved in athletics as well as school spirit. The best sports are probably basketball and soccer which probably have the most turnouts however there are many other sports that students can join to their liking as well. The athletic facilities are well up to date and meets the needs of students who participate in sports.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Overall I feel as though my campus is extremely safe. There are different aspects that foster the environment of safety. The SNAP service provides students free rides at night from different places around campus and downtown. This prevents students from having to walk alone at night. We also have a very involved police department. Each dorm room is equip with two emergency buttons in case of emergency. This feature allows a sense of safety even within ones own room.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many courses offered at this school aimed to widen a students view. Many different classes fall under the "liberal arts" area and give us a chance to think outside of our comfort zones. The professors are extremely helpful and seem genuinely interest in student success.

Overall Experience: This school offers different job fairs to help network. I believe that a degree from this school is respected and that job prospects will be bright for graduates. The career center helps students build a resume and practice interview skills, allowing them to one day successfully apply for different careers.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus gives students a chance to be near their friends, while also keeping them in close proximity to their classes. The community advisers are extremely helpful and build bonds with the students. There is also a study room on most floors which gives students a quiet place to work.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am involved in Greek life at our school, along with a majority of the population. People who are non-Greek are relatively friendly towards Greek and the students coexist. Almost everyone who goes Greek gets a chance to be a part of an organization and these groups all work together to better the community. The Greek housing is small, but still offers a chance for a few students to live within the house.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics program at my school is smaller than at other schools, and this leads to fewer supporters. While people attend varsity games, it is more common to meet people uninterested in the sports teams. Many students however are extremely involved in intramural activities. The games are highly competitive but also extremely fun to participate in. There is a wide variety of intramural activities that captivate different fields of students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My schools intimate setting fosters strong relationships with the professors. The small class sizes allow opportunities for one on one help if necessary. The individualized attention gives students a chance to excel in ways a larger school may lack. Professors care about their subjects and the success of their students, and this remains evident within their unique teaching styles and approaches.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe on campus, though one of my roommates was raped freshman year.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: All of my professors have been really interesting.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It is all a bit overwhelming I wish they would have more specific job fairs

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: When I lived in the dorms I loved them, i felt very privileged.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Societies nowadays only exist as an excuse to drink. If you don't want to become an alcoholic, pothead, or sex addict don't join one.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I really hate sports and wish they;d focus on something more important

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Georgia College is a really great place to go to because the professors are friendly

If you ask any student about their experience at GCSU, it is sure to be a positive one. If they had to choose Georgia College and State University all over again, most students would make the same decision. You are never going to feel like a number at the University, and the professors treat students with respect and honesty. The campus is absolutely beautiful, and having almost everything within walking distance is a major benefit. Plus, nightlife is not limited to upperclassman students, as you only have to be 18 to get into any of the bars downtown (still 21 to drink, though). 

Georgia College does a great job of preparing students for the “real world” through high-level classes, mock interviews, career fairs, and all of the other various opportunities the University Career Center offers. Choosing GCSU guarantees a small-town feel, a variety of new friendships, opportunities to join more than 160 organizations, and an overall great college experience.
