2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The front office is getting a lot better about transferring paperwork for you, but you can forget trying to get anything done over the phone or online. You MUST go see the folks in person.

2 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The online classes at SGSC are awful. I transferred to another college to get some of my classes knocked out because SGSC's online availability was terrible.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: There's not a variety of B.S. degrees at SGSC. The career center attempts to help find other degrees for you and they are helpful, but I feel like they need more help to satisfy the students because they are always rushed when they are helping you.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of the professors at SGSC are not willing to help student succeed. I believe some of the professors attempt to fail students just because they're having a bad day.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every so often, SGSC has a job fair, but most of the students at SGSC are not willing to work.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I haven't completed any internships just yet.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers are helpful but their rules about tardies should be looked at again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: From my experience during classes in the one semester I have attended at South Georgia State College, the instructors I had all had excellent teaching styles. During all my classes, the instructors lectured and students took notes. Some of my instructors used PowerPoint presentations, one even gave you incomplete copies of the presentations. Another instructor did not use anything but the whiteboard and a marker, using the marker only to write short words or phrases and you had to write what he talked about.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: In my one semester at South Georgia State College, I did not have a lot of problem signing up for classes. However, classes fill up very fast, so students need to make sure to register for classes at 12:00 AM the day registration starts.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have only attended South Georgia State College in Douglas for only one semester, but my instructors were all excellent at their jobs. They were all very knowledgable about the material and were above average on helping students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have attended South Georgia State College in Douglas for one semester and have really enjoyed it. I have had amazing teachers who care about their students and are willing to help students. One thing that has annoyed me is that the library is the only place I have been able to find with a hole puncher.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: While everything doesn't always run perfectly here, there is almost always somebody willing to help or at least point you in the right direction.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: My online classes were very convenient and easily navigated. The only problem is that sometimes, the instructor will give a somewhat unreasonable workload for what the class is. For example, I had more work due in my online music appreciation class (general ed) than I had in three classes for my major COMBINED (not an exaggeration). While I am definitely not the type to expect an easy 'A', I don't agree with a general ed class becoming more time consuming than my Anatomy and Physiology 2 class.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: For me, the process of scheduling classes was a breeze. The only problems I have heard about were a few athletes who had a very specific class for their major that was only offered during their practice time, but coaches always accommodate the classes and there is never too much trouble. Besides those few guys (3-4 out of the whole school), it's a very simple and smooth process.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: I only say that it's "okay" because I haven't been. My advisor has been awesome enough that I haven't personally needed to go to the career center.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Pretty much everyone here finds their "group" pretty quickly. Whether that's a sports team, classmates, student organizations or just strangers that become friends, everybody is accepted and has no trouble making friends if they want to. Making friends here is a real life example of "what you put in, you get out".

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being a junior college, the degree itself may not be what gets you a six-figure job within months, but if you keep your expectations realistic it can still be very valuable. Everybody here who really wants to transfer to a 4-year school will get there. The degree itself may not be what catapults you into success, but it will open all the doors you need to get to where you're going.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Most of the classes aren't necessarily a lot of work, because they are taught by different coaches from the school. That isn't to say that they don't take the class seriously though. You just won't have a lot of homework or out of class assignments because they have another job to do. When you take your tests though, you will realize that you are still expected to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm a student athlete, and so coming in I had a group of friends almost built in. Since it is such a small school though, you get familiar with people that are both athletes and non-athletes. If you aren't afraid to go talk to people, you will find that even if they aren't your "crowd" they are nice and sociable until you really do find you place here.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: SGSC is very small. Professors know you by name. Since it is a small campus, classes are always easy to find. Unfortunately, I've went through unnecessary stress because of the financial aid office. Overall, it's a good school to start at because of the small campus and low tuition. If I had to do it again, I would.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Not my first choice but not a bad school to attend

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am attending South Georgia on an athletic scholarship. If I didn't receive a scholarship South Georgia would't be my first choice, but overall it is not a bad school to attend for your first two years. Although there is not much to do in Douglas at all, the people that live here are very friendly and the professors are very helpful and caring.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Savannah State University is only out to get your money. I attended as a freshman Fall 2014, and I do not have a lot of finical aid or funds to attend. I got an on campus job in the Fall, but when I returned in January they told me I had to pay $3,000 up front or I would be kicked out on Thursday and school started on Monday. I went to finical aid, and the counselor then said to me: Well your mom had the money las seamster why can't she just do it again? & no we can not help you get any extra money. I cried, and had to go home that semester. I do not recommend this experience for anyone.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: They are really good at offering a number of different classes with different professors. Although, it's fairly difficult to get any help on your schedule, it's not difficult to figure it out on your own.
