Scholarships: Right now, I am in the processing of trying to get financial aid for my summer class. I believe they could more people to assist in the financial. I say that because in the mist of going to your next class, and wanting to talked with someone in the financial aid department. It get hard, because everyone else is trying to do the same thing you are doing.

Campus Food: The food is good. It depends on what time your class starts, if you would get a chance to eat a full meal. A lot of the times I would have to get pizza, salad, or not eat at all. I love that we have Chic-fil-a, and there are other little restaurant that we have as well.

Campus Housing: This is my first year at Valdosta State University. Living in the dorm is nice. Because I am a only child, I am to get use to sharing a room with someone. From a scale from one to ten, I give it a eight.

Greek Life: There is no greek housing and a large majority of students are involved with greek life. They host a lot of fundraisers and events and are a big part of campus life.

Athletics: I don't really get involved in campus activities that include sports, so I don't really know what is going on.

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home with my parents, so I don't have to worry about off-campus housing. However, I did look at a few when I thought about moving out with my boyfriend, but the cost was outrageous. You're better off renting a house with a yard.

Off-Campus Dining: Having lived here before college and living off campus, I can go eat wherever I want. I know where all the best spots are. However, closest to the school (walking distance), it's mostly fast food.

Administration: The attendance policy varies from professor to professor, but I think that if you can make an A in all the assignments and just show up for tests/quizzes then, you should be allowed to miss more than 20% of the classes, especially when it is a CORE class.

Scholarships: Receiving the HOPE scholarship and applying that and grants were easy. However, getting accepted for work study was a hassle that took over a whole semester.

Campus Food: Not only is the food on campus bad, but the customer service is terrible. The people working at Starbucks don't even know how to make the drinks. My friends and I will no longer go to the Starbucks on campus, we'd rather go to the one a few miles away.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live off campus and have not been inside the dorms.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I'm not to sure on the parties. I don't go to a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: They are improving but dining halls are limited and it's the same food all the time.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I did not like where I stayed. It was messy. The fire alarms always went off and they were strict on our visitors.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The two main off campus housing complexes are Blanton Commons and The Grove. They are both located a good distance from main campus if you do not have a car, and are actually structured the same for the most part.

Off-Campus Dining: Off Campus dining allows for cheap late night snacks.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I think that as adults we should be able to have who ever we want in our residence hall regardless of gender or age. We live in these halls and I understand that rules are set in order to protect the residents, but we know who we want in our room and at what time. There should not be restrictions on visitation for college students at all.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: When applying for financial aid, immediately after you finish your FAFSA start contacting the Financial Aid Department at VSU. It took me multiple attempts to get all of the information that was needed turned in, and it honestly stressed me out over the summer before my first semester.

Party Scene: Some parties at school are not as fun as they should be, but that is because people either do not know about them, or they are afraid that someone will do something stupid. However, the overall party atmosphere at Valdosta State University is unique. The majority of the time, everyone at the party has the same mind set and we just want to relax and have a little fun while being responsible.

Campus Food: In the dining halls there is always basically the same food: pizza stand, burger stand, sandwich stand, omelet stand, and a salad stand. With a meal plan eating at the dining hall is cheap in comparison to eating off campus everyday, but there is really no variety in the dining hall. Everyday they serve the same type of food.

Campus Housing: A college campus is an abyss of resources for college students. Personally, I enjoy living on campus because everything that you, as a student, need is located within close proximity of the residence halls. I attend Valdosta State University and live in what I consider to be the most resourceful building on campus. My residence hall has the Success Center; our tutoring center, Student Career Center; an office to help students find employment, and the Langdale Market; one of the two stores located on campus, attached to it. the library, dining halls, recreation center are also within walking distance. The closely knitted environment, plus a little southern hospitality, creates an atmosphere of acknowledgement among he residents because we all see and interact with each other on a daily basis. This makes living on campus feel as if you were living home.

Overall Experience: It was not the best or the worst school. I'm not sure if I would pick it again though.

Overall Experience: Being a science major, most of the teachers are foreign and have very strong accents. Once you get over that and can understand them the professors are very knowledgeable and most are willing to help.
