Fort Valley State University Reviews
The moment i made entry into Fort Valley is was like an enticing landscape. Fort Valley gives so much entail into their valid ability and escorts us subsequently around the campus. The dorms were unprecedentedly glorious, in which my family were very intrigued by the embellish decorations of the setting of a dorm room resigning towards an room inside of a house. At first i was dubious about the Fort Valley infrastructure and enrolling into a small public historical black college. I underestimated Fort Valley complexion and overall foundations. I plan to avid to transition to Fort Valley University. I can no longer wait, im so exhilarating from visit the University.
Fort Valley State University is a HBCU in Fort Valley, GA. In my 4 years here i have so many mixed emotions. The school is nice. The professors are very nice! I feel like since this is a small campus, there is more one on one time with professors and students. The professors really do care, and are understanding of situations. They know how hard it is to make it through college and they have no problem working with you. Obviously there are some things that can be worked on such as finacial aid but other than that i think it is a really nice campus
My FVSU experience has been pretty good so far. I've met great people who have shown me the utmost respect and have been the most helpful people that I know. I came to Fort Valley to dance because I had been dancing all throughout school. When I got here, I was an Accounting major but now I am a Media Studies major . After sitting down and thinking. I decided that Accounting was no longer for me. I have struggled all semester with math and I decided to change my GPA won't be destroyed because of my struggles. Sheryl Sandberg said, “ We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.” When I began my journey here at FVSU, I wasn't very sure of what I would be doing or getting myself into but after getting advice and insight on the different majors I decided to hop into something that is more hands on and interesting.
