Valdosta State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
Valdosta State University allows you to get a good quality education for a relatively affordable price. Do not be afraid to apply for the University's scholarships or external ones. It is in a small town, so if this is the setting for you, you'll love the school.
Valdosta State University is nothing short of amazing. It is ideally located just 20 miles from Florida and just a 3 hour drive to Atlanta or Savannah. The campus is impressively designed with Spanish architecture and it attracts prospective students with the astonishing Front Lawn that is surrounded by palm trees. They have done a phenomenal job hiring the professors in both the Criminal Justice and Psychology Departments (i.e. based on my experience). I personally feel that I was very lucky with the professors that I had because they showed how dedicated they were to the students and my education. There were semesters were I took the same professor(s) for two or three classes because I had so much respect for them and their teaching methods. Even though I started out as a Psychology major, I ended up graduating with a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice. I believe that the professors I had allowed me to gain a full understanding of my passion towards criminal justice. I was fortunate enough to be able to study abroad with the psychology department and staff. Studying abroad allowed me to gain appreciation towards different cultures. My time at Valdosta State University included some of the best years of my life that have sculpted me into the scholarly, young woman that I am today.
The Program is amazing! So many opportunities to build your resume before heading out into the real world. A lot of work but its worth the knowledge and experience. Great professors who will help you find your path and will push you to be a stronger actor/performer! The college is safe! Lots of restaurants. Housing was nice! Lots of events going on campus. Closer to Tallahassee and Jacksonville.
Valdosta state is a very accredited school. I could not have chosen a better school than Valdosta State University, and this has been confirmed since I graduated. Not only did I receive a first-rate education, I was exposed to many outstanding people of character and integrity. Oh, yeah, and it was fun! People need to remember that they cannot ascertain the entire college experience without finding a niche. Whether it is a sorority (mine was), a fraternity, the school newspaper, or another campus organization--you get out of school what you put in. I can base my "real world" experiences and learning on my collegiate undertakings. While I chose VSU for its aesthetic properties, I stayed because of its charming nature. Being a Blazer was an experience I will never forget.
Selecting Valdosta State was one of the best choices I could have ever made! I enjoyed every class I took. Valdosta State was an amazing little big college. It was large enough to enjoy the college lifestyle while small enough that I felt I received the one on one attention needed. My professors knew my name which was important to me. For two years I lived on campus which was a wonderful experience. The weather was always great, and the people in the town were so warm and welcoming. I love being a BLAZER!
Great school for sciences. My professors were helpful and professional for the most part. There were times when I could use a little extra help, and it wasn't hard to find tutors and to get extra one on one time with my professors. Really prepared me for the MCAT, DAT, and GRE. I learned much of what I will need in my pursuit of further education.
VSU was the school for me because of its prime location and beautiful campus. The teachers within the business school were always willing to help. The only downfall I faced was that there were many teachers from other countries and their language/teaching skills differed from the norm. Overall, it is a place to enjoy college, work hard, and learn all that you can.
I loved VSU. It was small enough where I felt like I had a connection with my instructors, but large enough that there were always tons of activities and events to attend. I got involved with the Greek system and that made my college years even better.
VSU is small enough to have a close-knit community and small class sizes, but large enough to serve the needs of a diverse student body. There is a niche for everyone here, with lots of academic, athletic, and social clubs, intramural sports, and awesome teams in football, volleyball, soccer, softball, baseball, and basketball. The professors are tough but ultimately caring and helpful. The on-campus tutoring center has lots of resources for struggling students-- as long as you're willing to work hard, VSU as a community wants you to be successful. The town of Valdosta is fairly conservative, but has a thriving student presence and cheap rent. I loved my experience at VSU!
It's an accredited college. Nice hometown place to go to college. However, there is definitely a party scene. At the time I attended, the faculty seemed qualified to teach, for the most part.
