4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really like it here. You guys so an amazing job at making everyone feel welcomed and I appreciate that. The professors care and are passionate about their jobs as well as their students success in their life, and later in life as well. There are a lot of courses but I wish there were more foreign languages available like Korean! I do like the class sissies as well, more one on one time and that goes a long way.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the career center is honestly amazing. They try so far to help aid the students of gcsu and I appreciate that so much. Just last week they had tons of different jobs come together and gave students the opportunists to put their name out there and hand them their resume. I thought that was extremely helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel like the school does an amazing job at trying to keep their kids safe because they genuinely care for one another and I love that. It's just with downtown being only a few steps away with tons of bars and clubs, some kids do tend to indulge themselves in that kind of behavior. But I haven't personally witnessed someone overdoing it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love it. Everyone is friendly, and the rooms are a decent size for each person. I like how you guys added the bed rest thing so people don't fall too. Safety is key!

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I love the idea of Greek life and have been trying to get involved but I'm not really sure where to start. But the ones who are involved around school look like they're having the time of their lives, creating friendships with each-other and contributing to the society.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not really a big fan of sports but from what I saw people love it here!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone have been extremely wonderful, sweet as can be and helpful in more ways than one. The professors actually care for you if you prove tot them that you're putting in the effort to learn too. Overall I enjoy gcsu a lot. The only problem I would have is that there's not that much diversity. Even if I had the chance to pick another school, I'd pick gcsu any day. Did I mention that the campus is beautiful?! It's legit out of a movie especially in the summer when everyone is outside soaking up some vitamin D!

3 College Student

Overall Experience: I love how diverse my school is, the teachers are very friendly and helpful through out the year

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Spacious but normal dorm rooms

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Great if you're not a huge football fan

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: The SNAP service offers rides in their golf carts to ensure that students are safely transported to where they need to go at night. There are plenty of emergency phones/intercoms on posts on campus. I've never had an unpleasant encounter with a local whino on campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: You learn a lot, do a lot of reading, and have to answer long essays on tests, but there isn't any "practical application". Very rarely did I work in groups. I wish the curriculum allowed us to apply what we learned in the real world.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are mainly white people here. A few blacks, a few Asians. But that's it.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My professors were very helpful and almost always had an open door, even when they were not open for office hours. They were both a professional and personal counselors. They even gave me textbooks to use to help me study for my senior exit exam, and I was able to download ARCGIS for free.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There is the SNAP service on golf carts which can drive you to your car, downtown, or dorm at night. There are emergency phone on posts all around campus. I have not met any whinos heckling me on campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I never had a problem with admissions staff or the application process.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I only joined one, Omega Delta Sigma, but it was short-lived. We had high hopes and ambitions for our fraternity, but we had difficulty recruiting and growing once our members started graduating or leaving for other personal reasons.

2 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The teams are not bad. It's just that I didn't see anyone except family attending baseball and softball games.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: 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.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One thing that i love about my college is the size of the classes. They offer very small class sizes and it is easier to get to know your Professors. The professors are very personal and try to get to know the students more. At the same time, they know and understand how to maintain a professional demeanor.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career that I chose was to better my future. The programs offered here at GCSU are amazing and can help me in my career path. They are challenging, but I am willing to take the challenge.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus has 24 hour security that allows them to monitor and be alerted at any time, night or day. They have constant security roaming campus to ensure the safety of everyone.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: living on campus is great. Of course, we all are going to have that one roommate, but you learn to get through it. The atmosphere is pretty good. People are really friendly.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I haven't really had a chance to understand Greek life at the college

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Although there are not many varsity sports, intramural sports are a very large part of this college life.

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.
