East Georgia State College Reviews
I have been enrolled in East Georgia State College (Augusta Campus) for about a year and a half. EGSC, while technically listed as a four-year institution, is primarily a two-year college for students to progress in their core curriculum. I can say I have had a lot of ups and downs with this college. For the most part, I am able to receive a decent education at a cheap cost. Many of the staff, faculty, and students were even nice and welcoming. However, I have also gained some issues with my college that involve campus life and communication between each campus/college. There are currently three different campuses for EGSC: Swainsboro, Statesboro, and Augusta. With Augusta being the furthest away, our campus is sometimes excluded from certain events, such as Homecoming or general holiday events. Even certain processing times for financial aid or admissions may be slower as it must process through the main campus. Overall, it's not a terrible college, but it's also not the best.
With East Georgia State College, my experiences vary from instructor to instructor. While some professors are very active online (active, meaning engaging with students or offering feedback on assignments in a timely manner), others may interact with their class every two to three weeks. Personally, it did not matter either way. The online classes I took, while somewhat difficult at times, usually had helpful and nice instructors to guide us when we had a question. Most of my issues, however, relate to the workload and price of textbooks. While I do not care about spending money to use learning software, such as Pearson, it was slightly irritating to know that taking some in-person classes will allow you to forgo buying the software. In addition, The workload for many of the online classes was more challenging to handle as some classes had different assignments (essays. quizzes, and discussions) due back to back. In short, my time spent in my online classes was simply okay.
The small student body and location (Swainsboro, GA) makes East Georgia State College a comfortable home for students to pursue their two year degrees. The friendly, accommodating staff is more than happy to help students find what they are looking for. Although the student body may be small, the access to great academic resources is not, as its library has a helpful staff ready to assist in tracking down information. However, East Georgia State College is not the perfect fit for those seeking to study in a large environment with an abundance of opportunity. If you love small town living, then this is the place for you!
