There are many ways to get involved in the community. There are clubs and organizations for every kind of passion. My professors were very helpful and cared about you as a student.

This school is awesome. The professors, and students are extremely easy to get along with. Although the courses are slightly challenging, the professors enjoy lending a hand.

After one year at GCSU, I am so glad I chose this college! The student body is smaller than most colleges in the area, and as a result, the class sizes are smaller, and we get more personal time and attention from our professors. There is a great family feeling between the students and teachers and even among the student body. I feel that upon graduation, I will have a broad knowledge of my field of study, mass communications, and that I will be able to find a job in that field. I attribute the knowledge I will gain to my professors and to the college philosophy.
