I really enjoy attending Georgia College because of the small class sizes and having the opportunity to have personal relationships with my professors. People are friendly and for a small school there are so many opportunities here at this school. The Give Center, undergraduate research, and so much more!

I really like the dorms here compared to at other colleges I have seen. I love that there are no community bathrooms. The gym is very nice and if you live on west campus you have no excuse not to go. The classes at the gym are really fun! The teachers will help you with anything you need if you know how to ask correctly and it is within reason. The campus is beautiful and you can walk everywhere. You can even walk downtown from campus which is also very convenient. The downside is after a while you realize that this is a very small town and there is not much to do. That's why it is important you get involved in clubs or greek life or anything that you're interested in. That will help you stay occupied. The nightlife here is also pretty fun but it gets boring after a while.
My experience at Georgia College was both enlightening and stressful. As it was the first college I attended, I was anxious and incredibly excited to live on my own and start learning to live life independently. The classes were small and personal, which I liked. As a student, I felt comfortable talking or emailing my professor because they usually knew all their students personally thanks to the class size. I did experience a couple hiccups with teachers who did not have my best interest at heart and advisors who really were not setting up the best educational path for me. Besides flaws in staff, the rest of my Georgia College experience was great and I would advise younger generations to try it out.
