3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options for off-campus housing and to be honest most of them are cheaper that college housing. The trade-off is safety. Many of the off-campus apartments are not that safe and are not in good parts of town. They are also at max 5-10 minutes away from campus and some don't provide bus services.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants near campus that makes it easy to find food. There is a KNG delivery service that is excellent though their prices can get up there.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I am a community advisor so I have a personal interest in the policies at the school. They are fairly lenient when it comes to first time events, though they crack down hard on any and all drug use. They are also strict on the honor code depending on who we are talking about.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't party all that much, but what I do know is that the party scene is active. Many Greek organizations throw parties and downtown is always crowded. The cops do stop most parties near campus before they get too wild, but there are a lot of pre-game options.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process can get lengthy. It is hard to get all the needed documents to the school and once they are there they tend to be lost at least once. My advice is to copy the paper that you give the school and keep on top of the process. Make sure each step is being completed and call the office instead of email because sometimes they do not answer the emails in a timely manner.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is very beneficial to live on campus. Most of the resident halls are close to main campus, making the trek to class easier. The best option is to get a single room, since upperclassmen cannot live in a double suit. That is part of the issue, residents want to live on campus after their first year but the options for upperclassmen are very slim. The housing process is relatively easy, yet many students get prior registration and it leaves other residents feeling unimportant.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I am not sure because I haven't lived elsewhere other than the dorms!

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party, so I don't have an opinion!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: College is very expensive and I wish more aid was available, but my advice would be to do everything early!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The main on campus options are the lunchbox, Chickfila, Einsteins, subway, and the Max. All are pretty decent!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is very convenient and overall a great place to live! The campus food isn't always the best, but it is decent!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I currently live on Campus but will be living off campus next year in hopes of saving some money on living expenses. The options seem average for a college town but are still expensive in comparioson to other college towns.

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dinig seems to be about the same as what is offered where my home town is. Some do offer discounts which is nice when your trying to stay within a budget!

Scholarships: I have the Ga Hope Scholarship so that was an easy process. I wish GCSU had more Scholarship opportunites though. College is expensive and any scholarships I can earn to help offset that cost would be wonderful!

College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not a Big partier. I am in a Sorority and they have mixers, but as far as the night life...I choose to be home working toward my major! I have the rest of my life to go out and have fun! I want to earn my degree and get out into the world and make a difference! If there is time after I have accomplished that goal then I will enjoy that downtime then!

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am a Picky eater and unfortunatly as a Freshman I have to have the Meal Plan. The Max really doesnt serve options that I eat so it becomes a hardship for my parents as they are paying for the meal plan and also have had to help supplement for grocery money for me as my school schedule is so demanding I have not been able to find a part time job to help offset that cost.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
