"Georgia Southern was a college when I attended, but so many of my family and friends attended right after me, and even way beyond, and they had a similar experience to me: The mid or early 80s was great, the school was small and people cared, but later on, the school just became too much about size, about pretending to forget what made it great, the personable touches it once had. My scholarship was a joke, the former honors program I was a part of was just a chore for all of us involved, really. It's nonexistent now but was run by an egomaniacal, narcissistic idiot who wanted the rest of us to feed his self esteem. So many people dropped out of the program. I am concealing my own info and grad year because that program was small and I don't want retribution, but half of us who were part of it hated the program! I had a ton of friends, excelled in my major, but I didn't really feel most classes were a boost in any way to how I got a job and moved up in the world as time went by--most of that I could have done with a piece of paper from anywhere that said I had a degree. Maturing was a great thing to do during college, but to be honest, I think I was light years ahead of the programs offered at the time. The football, the Erk Russell years, those things were wonderful, as was the small-town feel of Statesboro then. However, the alumni outreach is also lacking over the years and it's sad to not have anything that resembles a true and caring alumni office. They don't do anything except ask for money these days or send things out about the great sporting programs or how far Georgia Southern "has come" in "diversity"...please! I feel like I don't know my alma mater, and I think we were all plenty diverse at the time, too!"

"While attending Georgia Southern University I learned not only academics, I learned respect for the great educational institution it is. The best of the best educators reside at Southern. There is no stopping you as you grow. You will feel the love, the support, and the pride as you soar through your Major and completion of graduation."

  • Degree: Nursing
  • Graduation Year: 2010
"Georgia Southern University is an excellent school in the great town of Statesboro, GA. The location with the first thing that was a huge plus for me. It is only about an hour and a half from Augusta, GA, and forty-five minutes away from Savannah, GA. It was close enough to home to feel secure, but far enough away to get a full college experience. The classes were really great! The school of nursing ran like a well-oiled machine. I enjoyed the clinical experience I received at both the local hospital and at the hospitals in Savannah, GA. The behind the scenes work and time commitment to set up those clinical experiences are extensive, and they were essential for my degree. I felt like a was prepared to go into the medical field with the knowledge I received at GSU."

"Georgia Southern is a great university! I had the time of my life in school. The campus is welcoming, and beautiful. There is a wide variety of food options to use your meal plan, and they are all delicious. The library is massive, and an incredible resource right in the heart of campus to allow you to study between classes and even on the weekends. The sports are fantastic to watch, especially football, the stadium is huge and the environment is unbeatable. There is a large fitness center as well that has all of the amenities you could want. Savannah is less than an hour away if you need an escape from campus life, and Hilton Head Island is just over an hour. I felt so at home during my time there, and I have life long friends that I met along the way. I also had incredible professors who taught me so much, and I still keep in touch with many of them."

"I currently attend Georgia State College of Law in hopes of becoming a capable asset in the legal community. Thus the Writing and Linguistics degree that I obtained at Georgia Southern University has been essential to the path I chose. Legal writing is a huge and often scary part of the legal profession. While it is a very different style, the fundamentals and techniques I learned through my undergrad majors courses made it significantly less terrifying. Georgia Southern enabled me to reach for more. I truly enjoyed my years at the University because the campus simply hummed with opportunity and edification. The University catered to each student as an individual by offering a variety of organizations, jobs, and internship programs. And the Writing and Linguistics department always went out of their way to help me choose my desired paths. Furthermore, the professors were an integral part as they mentored us students based on their experience and genuine investment in helping us grow. I truly had a memorable experience in Eagle Nation."

"Georgia Southern is a beautiful campus in a small town that's a reasonable distance to Savannah. The campus offers many opportunities to be involved with clubs, Greek Life, Student Government, Sports and community events. The professors are diverse and interested in the success of the students. My advisor offered her students the opportunity to attend networking events for exposure. She assisted in the job search prior to my graduation. My experience at Georgia Southern was a great one."

"Georgia Southern has a beautiful campus. The amount of greenery and sitting areas throughout the entire university provide great opportunities to take a breather after a stressful test, to meet up with friends, or just to take a moment to yourself. I can only recall ever disliking two professors (one in my freshman year and one in my senior year) but, as with any school, there are bound to be some professors you like, some you love, and some who make you wonder why and how they're even still teaching. Every professor that I had in the psychology department was outstanding, though. My favorite professor for psychology was Dr. Locker because he just made Psychological Statistics and Advanced Psych Stats so so SO very easy to understand. (& this is coming from someone who DOES NOT math because no). There's a Starbucks on campus, which is essential, and a bunch of other eateries too. They even recently added a sushi place in the nursing building. It's VERY easy to get lost in the first few weeks of classes. I honestly didn't figure out some shortcuts to places until my senior year, so don't feel bad if you still can't find Herty or Rosenwald. Last, but not least, the busses. If you haven't had the bus doors close in your face at least once, you deserve an award. Some of the drivers will see you, open the door, & say sorry, but then you have those ruthless ones who will see you, keep the door shut, sit there with the door closed, & then drive off. Whether you get left by a bus or not, remember that GA Southern isn't all bad and the experience is what you make it."

"Georgia Southern is the best combination of a large and small school. Classes vary from 12-300 students. This gives students the experience in a variety of settings, as well as extra help when needed. Georgia Southern is located in Statesboro Georgia and the small town is very welcoming to the students."

"Georgia Southern University has great professors who have strong networks with people in their profession. The courses will challenge you and most majors require you to complete an internship before you graduate. This school tries very hard to give you a great college experience. I loved my school."
