I love Armstrong so much. It is the only school that I applied to, and I have not once regretted it. It is located in beautiful Savannah, Georgia. There is so much to do here!
I love the small community feel at Armstrong. The class sizes are usually small. I learn better in smaller classes, so it is great for me. I feel more comfortable asking questions. Most professors also know you by name.
I am majoring in Nursing. The Nursing program here is great. I will be applying to the program this month! I am so excited to be a part of it. The classes here have prepared me to be competitive in the program. They are rigorous and are designed to make you improve your study habits and work HARD.
Armstrong's merge with Georgia Southern has its pros and cons. I believe that the school will have more funding for its programs and possibly more dining options. However, I fear that Armstrong will lose its unique atmosphere and small community.
Armstrong Atlantic State University is one the best colleges to attend in the Coastal Empire. The professors are passionate about their students. They invest in their education and do what they an to ensure you grasp the information and can apply it. The staff even host job fairs to get you connected with employers. Their are a variety of Greek and non-Greek clubs/organizations and the students are focused on their education so there is little room for distraction here. I strongly encourage you to apply and attend. The student body is diverse, there are tons of opportunities to get involved in the community and I guarantee you will meet some of the best people in the world!
I absolutely loved my first year as a college student at Armstrong State University. I came to Savannah knowing one or two people at most, and I left it know at least one hundred people. It was fairly easy making friends, and I made some good, hardworking friends who cared about their education and did not waste their time partying every weekend. My favorite experiences had to have been the times I would go play soccer in the intramural fields. If I could do it all over again, I would!
