3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My bill is always wrong when I have to pay for school.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: There were barely any vegetarian options! The fruit was old and the salad was brown. Everything tasted old.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I loved living in the dorms! There were always activities and I felt so safe there. The environment was friendly and the building was always clean.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not too many places to live here, which makes prices go way up.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't enjoy partying but on Thursday nights there is always something going on for people who do like to go out.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining here is all that I need--pizza and wings. Can't complain.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I always feel safe in my dorms and I know that I can easily talk to any administrators to help me.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I still don't really even know how the financial aid thing works. I contacted them a bunch but never got an official word from the financial aid office about what my financial aid status is.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The MAX is good for breakfast. Anything else, no.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Relatively new, clean housing. Close walk to campus

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love GCSU. It is the perfect size where you have a personal learning experience but you still don't know everyone. Most of the professors like their job and choose to be in the classroom.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are multiple days where GCSU has possible jobs and internships on front campus. They encourage you to experience many different job opportunities and internship options.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Honestly, I didn't go to college to get a guy. There are many guys and girls on campus for you to get to know. There are a ton of nursing, business, and accounting majors at GCSU. The social life is good, even if you don't party there are other means to meet people.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is one of the safest in Georgia. The GC public safety is great and always willing to help. The health center is also pretty good, though they can be too willingly to hand out medicine that either you don't need or interfere with other medicine. Always check out the medicine that the wellness center gives you.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not a part of the Greek Life. From observing, the Greek life can be great and can be horrible. Many Greek students still hang out with non-Greeks and I have many friends who love their fraternity or sorority.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The newer wellness center is great for non-athletic students. It offers many different work out activities. The only real downside is that it is at West Campus so it can be a hassle for those living on main campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are a variety of options for eating. The on campus options are really great, I spend a lot of time and money at Einstein's Bagels underneath MAX. The dining hall is okay, though they tend to have the same foods everyday.

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.

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!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Main chain restaurants but also quite a few original places! Overall yummy!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
