3 College Junior

Diversity: There is some tolerance but not acceptance of different minorities on campus.

2 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is a ton of alcohol and weed in the dorms. Almost everyone smokes or drinks on weekends.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The student center for career opportunities is nice, and there are job fairs throughout the school year, however I don't know how I can get a job that pertains to my field after college.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors for the most part care about the students, and the class sizes are very reasonable and nice. The courses are sometimes redundant.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is more crime than I anticipated going to a medium school. I know of at least hand full of armed robberies that took place in my two years of being here. There isn't a great emphasis on what to do in an emergency, and I think there should be.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing itself is really nice, on campus and has nice amenities. However, the housing staff is disorganized and needs to have more consistent policies.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is one of the only things to do here, so many people decide to to not be bored. It is ok, I don't personally see the philanthropies in the community.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our football team and other sports teams do really well for what they are. The softball and baseball teams are really good, however there is a disconnect between the level of achievement for sports and how many people turn up to the games. There is almost no campus support other than the greek life, and it is very disheartening.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is great when it comes to the professional level of the professors, the class sizes and the medium college feel. However, housing and financial aide are a big problem and everyone has an issue with them. The student workers hired for some secretarial work are lazy and rude.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are intelligent and convey their knowledge adequately. The professors make themselves available for extra tutoring. I was able to select the courses that I need for the first semester. The university goes to every length to keep class sizes at a reasonable level to allow for student participation.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have read the reviews online from prior students regarding to the career center. They all give it excellent reviews. I believe that my Political Science degree from Valdosta State Unviersity will open internships for me in state government. I also am looking forward to becoming an officer in the Air Force ROTC.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. I was given the emergency numbers for campus police at orientation. I have seen officers in and around campus on a regular basis. I have not heard of any crime on campus.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am currently a non-Greek, but I might become a Greek. I was given the choice, and felt comfortable in the presence of the Greek students. I know that Greeks have their own housing. I really prefer to stay in the dorm for my Freshman year. I may become Greek for my Sophomore year, and move into Greek housing.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I like the emphasis placed on student involvement in sports whether it be intramural or Varsity. I like the fact that Club Sports are encouraged. I like the fact that school spirit is strong. Students are encouraged to participate in pep rallys. The athletic facilities are excellent. I also like the fact that I can participate in off campus trips that involve rowing, kayaking, hiking, etc. Go Blazers!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed orientation. I got to meet different students who are also majoring in Political Science. I was able to meet the Air Force ROTC officer, Colonel Nolan Greene. I was also introduced to the fraternities at Valdosta State University. I was able to meet with my Academic Advisor, and select my classes. I met a few of the professors. I am impressed with their abilities to explain subject material, and what is required. I viewed my dorm room, and am excited about moving in soon.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe. The school and staff has came up with great ways to inform students of how to be safe and if they are felling unsafe or being approached in an unsafe manner how to go about the situation. For those who feel unsafe walking alone there are buttons located across the campus to press and a security will come and escort them to their dorm. The school organizations comes up with idea that are entertaining and informative relaying important information regarding safety to the students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient and is available to all students. The space isn't the most spacious but it allows for students to accumulate to their environment. The location of the dorms is convenient to an extent but walking will be done a lot to a wide-range of areas. The housing process is simple but timely at first. The way they choose housing makes sense and gives us a chance to meet new people.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is very expanded at this campus. There is a great deal of options and focuses of each sorority and fraternity. Greeks do a lot in the community and around the school. The sisterhood an brotherhood is well worth becoming a part of. Outside of what people think the Greeks stick together like a family and support each other. The males stay in Fraternity houses while the females stay in Brown Hall as of Fall 2016. It is rigorous requirements in order for students to pledge/join certain Greeks.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are very well-organized and looked at. Students and faculty look forward to the upcoming year. Sports seems to be the thing that holds the school up. There is a lot of school spirit.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Has its imperfections, but residence life is highly recommended to Freshman willing to smoothly assimilate to college life.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Very active and pretty much takes over campus. A lot of them are nice, but also a lot are cliquey.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: VSU puts a lot of effort into Athletics, which produces some of the best teams in the NCAAD2 division.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Best representation of college experience to me. Large enough to enjoy all the unique aspects of college life, and small enough to still feel like you matter, other than just a statistic to this school.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: Maybe not the worst, but the rate is very high. I believe 1 in 5 women last I checked. Its very common in Remerton and a lot go unreported. Its not safe for young women to go out drinking in Valdosta period.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its super easy to get in and to stand out if you're a good student.
