Pros: The social atmosphere is nice. People will generally give you your space if you make no effort to interact, but will be happy to offer help if you ask for it. Most professors are very passionate about what they do, and ready to help out after class. The course difficulty spans a wide range, so be sure to ask around for tips when choosing a class schedule; however, as long as you have good study habits and pay attention to the syllabus, most classes should not be too challenging. The features of the Macon campus include an impressive gym (open to all registered students), gardens, a police station, and a library with helpful staff, to name a few. Despite the area's bad reputation, the campus itself feels very safe. Tuition rates are rising now that the college has become a university, but it is still more affordable than the other local options. Cons: The staff at the bursar and registration offices are highly prone to making mistakes, and the advisers always seem to be busy, so always double and triple check your records because you'll probably need to make corrections when applying for classes or financial aid. Transferring credits is also difficult, and the online student information system can be confusing and slow to update.

This College (now University) was not my first choice, but I love it still. It is local and growing. There are now five campuses and many more degrees being offered even a Master's in Nursing. I like all of the different events they have like therapy dogs, massages, events for the community, and much more. We now have a new gym, with an indoor pool and bowling alley. It just keeps getting better and better.
