"This degree program gives students a lot of experience in the classroom. Your first couple of years in college, you will be expected to go into the elementary classroom and observe the teacher and students. Once you have been accepted into the program, your junior year, you will travel to 3-4 placements during the year. You will get experience at different schools and grade levels. During this year, you are expected to observe, assist the teacher, and teach some lessons. Your senior year, you will be placed in one classroom for the entire year. You will gradually start teaching more lessons and eventually will be full time teaching in the spring. It was a very challenging program balancing college classes and student teaching, but it definitely gave me a lot of experience in the elementary classrooms. By the end of the program, I had experience in all of the elementary grade levels, except fifth grade."

"My time at Georgia College & State University, was very good. It was a beautiful campus and I was familiar with it because I dual-enrolled at the university prior to becoming a full time student. The professor are very caring and insightful. The only thing I would change about the Mass Comm. Department is how many opportunities and classes there are for someone who is interested in film. While I was a student, the Mass Comm. Department placed more emphasis o PR/Marketing and Journalism. There are opportunities for student interested in film and television, but they were limited, and there is only one professor who was considered a hybrid (Journalism/film)."

"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."

"The public administration program at Georgia State University is well ranked. I found my classmates to be friendly and engaging. Most of the professors were approachable and helpful. Careers in public policy do not pay as much as the private sector, so have a concrete plan in place for your future career goals after graduation."

"The school is very academically challenging, but the professors mostly want you to succeed. There is always the opportunity for help, whether it be from the instructors or from their assistants. The campus is spread out, but there is a steady bus system in place. Safety is also a priority of the school as well. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a great education, exposure to diversity, and access to world cultures."

"Best college choice for me. Small class size, personal attention by professors, and all my classes were with similar students so we were able to form a bond and study together as we went through the program."

"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."

"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."

"The graduate program I was involved in at Georgia College and State University was a one year program. It was great experience, and the internships involved in the program were the most valuable. My only concern were teachers who did not model what they taught and yet told us how we should be teaching. I only had one teacher that modeled what they were teaching. I also got connected with some great people though and was able to network in an awesome way."

"I'm enjoying the program thus far, the professors here are knowledgeable and continue to do research and writing in their areas of expertise, which is admirable and encouraging. I would appreciate a bit more diversity as it relates to writers of the African Diaspora."

"The graduate program at GCSU was very helpful to my progression into the law field. Because of the wonderful teachers and classes, I was able to transition well into law school a few years after graduation. The only negative factor was that the graduate programs didn't cultivate a very "community" atmosphere with the rest of the school. I understand that most of the graduate students were part time and working full time, but I still think that the program at the university could be more integrated into the atmosphere of the entire school."

"I'm currently pursuing a master's degree in Human Performance which has provided with an invaluable skill set that I can apply in the medical field. The class designs, unique student teacher relationships, and personal growth GCSU has provided me are a testament to the aspirations it has for its graduates. I plan to extend this message to all who are seriously interested in self-advancement and academic excellence. The only con to the program is limited access a variety of sports teams."
