"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."

"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."

"Georgia Southern has a great Business program that prepares students well for the real world. I strongly encourage students to put as much of your learning into practice as you can to avoid graduating without experience. Work to be creative in having a choice of using different technologies to submit assignments. Tools such as OneNote, project schedule and a host of apps are widely used in the workplace. I was fortunate enough to land a work study job in the computer lab and get acquainted with Career Services. As a result of constant following up and keeping track of interview opportunities, I received a 2-year co-op which landed me a permanent job right out of college. Again, I cannot stress enough to carve out time to shadow, intern, etc in order to get real world experience. GSU continues to grow and become a staple school in Georgia with a great reputation of academics and recreation. There was also a plethora of organizations to hold leadership roles which is a good idea to take advantage of. I know I continue to put emphasis on critical skills and job experience which is what was required when I graduated in 2001. Its the same today. Many college students are struggling with graduating and obtaining a job in their major. Unfortunately, many end up settling with the first offer just to have a job for income flow. Remember to be as proactive as possible way before you graduate. Use the summers to get real field experience in your career of choice. Dont let such a great college experience be in vain."

"I really enjoyed attending Georgia Southern University! It is located in Statesboro, GA which is about one hour away from Savannah. Statesboro is a small college town that didn't have much happening outside of the college. However on campus there were many activities that you could get involved with. I joined a number of organizations and loved it! They have a beautiful campus and the professors were awesome."

"I think it was a fun, rewarding experience. I do feel my particular school did not prepare me or offer much assistance in obtaining a job following school. They allowed certain things to happen that weren't the best choice for the students and I wasn't okay with that."

"It was small enough to feel comfortable but not too small to feel like a community college. The campus is beautiful and the professors are attentive. There's not much to do in Statesboro, but it's a nice, small town."

"GS had professors that encouraged me to challenge myself, produce and present research, and network with professors and speakers in order to aid in professional development and overall success. I couldn't have done all of the research and presentation at a bigger/less individualized school."
