Georgia College & State University Reviews
As a student I was afforded many opportunities during my matriculation. I was able to participate in a research project entitled "The New Porphrin". Under the mentorship of R. A. Richards, Ph.D., this research exposed me to instrumentation, such as Spectroscopy and Chromatography analysis, as well as reinforced laboratory techniques. I was selected for the Minority Internships in Nanotechnology program at Northwestern University. This internship allowed me to conduct nano- scale research on polymers and material used for adhesion in biological systems. The next internship involved conducting research at the Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science and Argonne National laboratories. I was accepted to be a forensic chemist intern at the Westchester County Crime lab in Westchester, New York under the mentorship of Ted S., Senior Forensic Scientist. I excelled in using the Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometer, interpreting the GC-Mass Spec's results, lifting fingerprints from a variety of surfaces, and discovering narcotics in hidden, fabricated regions of hard evidence. Through the internship I attained a certificate in crime scene analysis and evidence collection. My time at Georgia College and State University opened many doors and has lead to my decision to become a teacher and mentor other youth and fuel their curiosity and love of learning.
Georgia College was a great school for someone who wants smaller, more personalized education. The campus is beautiful and there are plenty of activities for everyone to get engaged. Plus, the more involved you get - the better your overall experience.
Beautiful campus and great class sizes. I made great friendships with my instructors and maintain contact even years later.
Overall, GCSU is a great school. The campus is beautiful and there are a lot of good professors. The disability/accessibility office needed improvement when I was there.
GCSU is a great college to attend even if you are a working single parent. The program of study is a two year process which includes classroom and field-based learning experiences. The program teachings you about and the importance of child development, family, community, curriculum development, and assessments.
