Valdosta is a nice traditional university. It is very diverse. Based on the time that I spent here over the past year I recognized the professionalism of the Staff and the students. The teacher's are well educated and excel at getting the material across to their students. It's all about the amount of work the student puts in because getting good grades are very possible. The student just has to be focused. Valdosta State is a great place to start your higher education experience.
