Student & Graduate Reviews

Taylor Whitaker - 6/30/2019
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017
"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)."

T. Pride - 5/31/2017
Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2005
"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."

"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."
