Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2013

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.

Degree: Writing
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 1997

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.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

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.

Degree: Human Development and Family Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2016

As an out-of-state student, GSU had plenty of resources available to help me adjust to my new surroundings. The faculty were always friendly and eager to help. The resources available to all students, including the 24 hour library, health services, advisors, excellent housing, and on-campus activities, truly enhanced my college experience and made my four years incredible. The Recreation Activity Center (gym) is absolutely incredible with everything to offer from machines to basketball courts to classes to an indoor rock climbing wall! The housing options at GSU are great too, I thoroughly enjoyed living on campus all four years.

Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015

One of my biggest frustrations was the advisement process. It changed after I graduated so hopefully it is better now. One of my professors was my advisor but they didn't put too much effort into knowing what I needed to graduate. I think they wanted to focus on their classes and students which is great but I needed an advisor who knew what they were talking about. One of my favorite things about my degree program was my professors. They really cared about the students and went out of their way to be available for assistance outside the classroom.

Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015

I could not have imagined a better college experience than Georgia Southern. My degree program was challenging, yet prepared me to be successful in my graduate studies. My academic advisors guided me throughout my course work. My professors were always there when I needed assistance. I excelled throughout my degree program and will continue to excel in my graduate studies. I have Georgia Southern University to thank for providing me with the tools I need to succeed in all my future endeavors.
