4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at school has been great. So far I have met a lot of individuals with the same ambitions and goals as me. My classes have been challenging but also helpful towards my career. Although there are many foreign teachers at my university, they spend multitude of time working with the students to help them understand and move forward. My advisor is very helpful with pushing me and encouraging me throughout the year along with many other students. We as a class, along with our teachers, all work together to help each other gain the knowledge needed to excel through our college years.

Overall Experience: Being at Savannah State University, truly like no other. The institution is extremely family oriented. I feel that the faculty, as well as the staff are there to ensure students' prosperity under all circumstances. I would not choose another institution if I had the chance because if the simple fact that I love my SSU. We are the oldest historically black college/university in the state of Georgia and I feel as though each and every staff member genuinely cares for students. I plan to complete all 4 years there, and return for graduate school.

Overall Experience: SSU is a historical African American College, with alot of history. In getting my degree here I still will be able to learn the history of the college and about it's founders. It's a small family oriented college by the sea.

Overall Experience: When I visited my school, Savannah State University I felt welcome and at home. As they was explaining what they were about I decided that I had made the right choice. Savannah State prepares you for life beyond college, they provide academically and they even set a requirement that states every student on every Wednesday must wear professional attire. I am very satisfied will my choice and I choose it over and over again.

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus seems to be really good move financially. The off campus options are mostly apartments and you can find roommates with other students from SSU or even local colleges. There are plenty of options. From what I have heard it cost basically the same to live on campus then off. The only con to living off campus is that you have to have a car or one of your roommates. It would be very difficult to transport yourself back and forth to school on the CAT.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The best parties are usually off campus at a club or at a house. The parties have loud music and students usually are mingling around talking and dancing with one another. Sometimes it is a very great bonding experience because you meet so many different great people. However there are drugs and alcohol at the college parties and you do see some students take advantage of the drugs. But if you have great friends they wouldn't let you get to a point where you cant control yourself. So the students usually look after one another and no one has gotten hurt.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining spots are mainly fast food. The cost is reasonable and it is very convenient because they are not far from the school. If it is a nice day outside you could walk to one of the restaurants. I honestly like the restaurant called Carey Hillards. It is a sea and soul food place. It is only in Savannah and it is a family owned restaurant but there food is amazing. Student discounts are mainly at McDonalds or some well known fast food place but I have not received any.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The rules I have seen enforced is drug and alcohol use. I've seen students get arrested for violating the policies. The police officers are very protective over the students and only want to see us prosper. When they see us making bad decisions they will correct and give us a warning. However if it becomes a problem then you will get arrested. The police officers believe that drugs and alcohol will prohibit you from being successful, and if you are around other students doing bad things then it is not setting a good example. So they will do anything to stop it and protect us from any harm.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid process was not a hassle. My financial aid was the Hope scholarship and students loans. I did not have to go to financial aid to get anything straightened out, it was put into my account automatically when it was time to pay by student bill. I had to come out of pocked around 8000 total my first year in college. So that is why I am applying for scholarships.

Campus Food: At Savannah State we do not have a whole lot of variety of foods on campus. The café has the best food because it is home cooked all the time and it has the most healthy food options. The student union and tiger express are the least healthiest because all they sell is greasy foods like, burgers, fries, wings, bacon, etc. The dining dollars work as if it is real money. If you want something extra then you would have to use your dining dollars. The price of food is over priced in the student union. But there is not a lot variety which I wish we had.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus at Savannah State University is a very interesting experience. You get to meet a lot of new people. The dorm I stayed in my freshman year was called Tiger Place. Those dorms were one of the newer nicer ones. Also tiger place was a freshmen residential hall for females only. The other dorms on campus like the Commons, The Village, Tiger Court, Bostic, Bowen, and Wright Hall are also very nice. The upperclassman tend to stay in the Village or The Commons. Then the Freshman stay in the others. The worst places to live are Bostic and Bowen. The cost of the dorms are not cheap but their not that expensive. Its doable. The housing process is very easy we do it online when housing emails us and we just pick which dorm facility we would like to live in and which room number. Its pretty easy. But don't wait until the last minute because you will end up somewhere you don't want to be.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

From the academics to the social life, Savannah State University is nothing but great. But the college experience is ultimately what you make of it. SSU's historic value is what surprises students the most. The oldest building on campus, Hill Hall, has survived fire. In addition, everyone is so friendly and family oriented, always willing to lend a helping hand. Many things make the school unique, including Felix Alexis Circle, which hosts the Greek "Divine Nine" fraternities and sororities. Many other schools have Greek houses, but SSU has Greek "plots."

The student-to-teacher ratio provides students with one-on-one assistance from teachers, where you're more than just a number. In addition, despite these smaller numbers, students still come together to make a difference. Ultimately, the student orientation leaders (SOLs) and tiger ambassadors (TAs) smoothen the transition from high school to college, and enlighten prospective students about SSU. Both organizations allow upcoming freshmen to feel right at home and welcomed. SSU prepares students to have an open mind, and to network appropriately because it's not what you know—it's who you know.
