After Valdosta State University
- Very Good606
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!

I love my school! Valdosta State's campus is absolutely breathtaking and they are always trying to improve to make the campus safer and updated. The professors are very well qualified to teach their subjects and always willing to help students. There have been some tragic events to take place here; however, VSU has responded to these events well and they learned and moved forward to make VSU better.

Campus Life – Though Valdosta is considered a small town compared to many others, the campus life is relatively good. The rec center is very useful for athletic students, the equipment always works, and for those who don't work out much there is rock climbing, zumba, yoga, raquetball and other active activities to enjoy in the gym. There is also a tennis court. Odum library, often referred to as "club Odum" due to its sometimes noisy environment is an okay place to study if you can study around a bit a noise or you can just get a study room. The UC (University Center) and the Student Union are both good on-campus places to eat and just hang out. The UC has Chic fil A express and two other fast food options, and the student union has Papa Johns and Moes. Everything on campus is pretty accesible except the UC is kind of far from campus so you have to walk or you can take the shuttle. The problem with the shuttle is that they sometimes take FOREVER, so you should have good judgement of your time before deciding to get on the shuttle bus or you may end up late to class. On campus jobs are available through the Student Employment service, they are convenient, look good on your resume, and usually aren't too demanding, but they ARE COMPETITIVE! So if you're interested in one of these jobs, don't just apply but do the foot work by visiting the respective departments and physically handing them your resume. There's a mall and lots of eateries around the school so if you don't land an on campus job, you still have other options, but again they ARE COMPETITIVE because there are hundreds of other college students looking for work as well. There is always an organization to join or an activity to get involved with on campus, just check your email for the weekly activity messages to stay in the loop if you want to get involved.
