Georgia Southern University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
Georgia Southern has a great Business program that prepares students well for the real world. I strongly encourage students to put as much of your learning into practice as you can to avoid graduating without experience. Work to be creative in having a choice of using different technologies to submit assignments. Tools such as OneNote, project schedule and a host of apps are widely used in the workplace. I was fortunate enough to land a work study job in the computer lab and get acquainted with Career Services. As a result of constant following up and keeping track of interview opportunities, I received a 2-year co-op which landed me a permanent job right out of college. Again, I cannot stress enough to carve out time to shadow, intern, etc in order to get real world experience. GSU continues to grow and become a staple school in Georgia with a great reputation of academics and recreation. There was also a plethora of organizations to hold leadership roles which is a good idea to take advantage of. I know I continue to put emphasis on critical skills and job experience which is what was required when I graduated in 2001. Its the same today. Many college students are struggling with graduating and obtaining a job in their major. Unfortunately, many end up settling with the first offer just to have a job for income flow. Remember to be as proactive as possible way before you graduate. Use the summers to get real field experience in your career of choice. Dont let such a great college experience be in vain.
I think it was a fun, rewarding experience. I do feel my particular school did not prepare me or offer much assistance in obtaining a job following school. They allowed certain things to happen that weren't the best choice for the students and I wasn't okay with that.
I loved GSU! Beautiful campus and just the right size. Teachers are very friendly and helpful.
It was small enough to feel comfortable but not too small to feel like a community college. The campus is beautiful and the professors are attentive. There's not much to do in Statesboro, but it's a nice, small town.
GS had professors that encouraged me to challenge myself, produce and present research, and network with professors and speakers in order to aid in professional development and overall success. I couldn't have done all of the research and presentation at a bigger/less individualized school.
I loved GSU. It was a small campus that had amazing professors.
It is hard to find a good job with just a bachelor's degree. I found a job in my field and was able to use my degree. No regrets
I loved the campus. It wasn't huge and sprawling like some college campuses. It was a beautiful, condensed campus. Overall, my experience was great. I had great professors who really cared and taught well. I loved my major and the professors within my major. Statesboro gets kind of old, but that doesn't take away from the educational experience at Southern.
I enjoyed my undergraduate experience so much I stayed for a Master's degree! During my time as an undergraduate, I gained valuable experience that I was able to carry into internships and my research. There were so numerous ways to get involved and have fun! When I wasn't studying, I was playing intramural sports, watching plays or participating in adventure trips! Great school and great experience!
Georgia Southern is a respectable school, but dealing with financial aid is often stressful. The education program is very intense and thorough. While I am proud to have earned my degree and I support the school, I would not recommend it to any new college student. If you are a graduate student, it should be fine.
