Georgia College & State University Reviews
GCSU is a wonderful school! In my experience, the professors are all very kind and willing to help. There are tons of resources available to students to help us succeed (such as free tutoring). The library is wonderful, the food is pretty good, the residence halls are very nice (I stayed at Adams Hall), the classes are challenging but fair, and everyone you meet is incredibly kind! What more could you want in a college? I'm so lucky to call GCSU home!
Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at GC. I got involved in a non-greek sorority which helped me make friends I will have for a lifetime. I think my first two years I did not get out and do enough because I felt bored at times but as time went on I think I got more invovled and enjoyed what downtown had to offer and the campus events. Academically I think the class sizes were great other than the large science classes. I was very thankful for the one-on-ones I had with my professors during their office hours. I was able to build great student-teacher relationships. I would definitely recommend GC to anyone looking for a more personal academic experience and who doesn't mind a small campus. I know that since I have graduated the school has grown and developed so much and it seems like they have even more to offer thier current and prospective students!
Georgia College & State University is wonderful school with professor's and faculty who truly care about the students success! It has a wonderful atmosphere filled with families and friends from all over who loves and takes care of their community. I would recommend anyone to apply, tour, and ultimately become an alumni of such an amazing college!
