Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Governors State University delivers a superb education that is instructional and creates an excellent experience to students who are majoring in Psychology and many other majors! The Professors are interested in the students and engaging in terms of academia and excellence in creating the best educational route for students. The successful core curriculum prepared myself for an amazing educational experience. I just recently received my acceptance letter from Adler University, where I will study Clinical Psychology entering a doctoral program ( Psy.D.) designed for Psychologist. This program is accredited by the American Psychological Association and is well known globally. None of this would be possible with it were not for Governors State University, who opened the pathway for me! Thank you so much, I am forever eternally grateful to the Faculty and the admissions department at GSU!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011

I love GSU. The classes was a nice size meaning your instructor will know you by name. They was very helpful and care about you succeeding. I received my B.S there. In would have stayed fire my master's, but Mrs. S. is over the criminal justice department who really do not give a crap....when 'chip'was over it he was AWESOME.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2014

GSU is a good school, and it is great that it is the cheapest university in the state. Having knowledgeable instructors with working experience helped to make me extremely passionate about the field; I was very excited about my career possibilities. My only problem with the Human Resource Management concentration was the lack of resources for students while I was attending. The HR club met once in the 2 years I attended the university; there were no scholarships available to HRM students; and the university did not provide HRM students with internship or career opportunities. This did not seem to be the case for other BA concentrations. (HR and Entrepreneurship were the only concentrations without sections in the career fair in 2013/2014.) I moved out of state shortly after graduation and have not been able to find a career or truly utilize the knowledge I gained here [in a paid position]; my bachelor's degree seems to only afford me administrative assistant positions (and I had 2 years of HR experience prior to completing the program). I would not recommend studying at GSU unless you're planning to stay in IL (specifically the Chicagoland area) or Northwest Indiana. It is, unfortunately, not a university recognized elsewhere, and the network your university has is crucial for your success after graduation. Despite my employment situation, I do truly feel the program made me knowledgeable of business as a whole and of human resource management. I would recommend this school to anyone seeking an adequate and affordable education back home.

Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2016

GSU is a good school. Some of the online instruction in the reading program is too demanding and inconsiderate of the fact that people work full-time.
