Overall, Georgia Southern (Armstrong) is a very great college. The professors are great at what they do too! They actually teach, are willing to help, and even support you in your decisions. All you have to do is just ask and go to their office and they'll help you out. The campus is pretty great too! The scenery is certainly the best I've ever seen! It's cleaned and presentable compared to other colleges I checked out. The students there are also very nice (at least from my experience) and most of them are down to form study groups and such.

My experience at Georgia Southern has been absolutely awesome. Everyone is so accepting and diversity is something that is normal. Several professors are truly passionate about the material they're teaching and pay a lot of attention to how their students perform and how they need to improve their teaching skills to improve student learning. Last year, I applied to be a TA for my favorite professor, who taught me cell and molecular biology. She didn't hesitate at all and gave me the opportunity and as a team, we raised the class average by 4% from previous semesters. The students that go to my campus are so enthusiastic about learning and have a lot of motivation to perform and make something better out of Georgia Southern.
The transition from in-class learning to online during COVID-19 was very accommodating to students. We were met with much information about how to take the first steps in an online learning environment. The professors were very open about the situation and were willing to work with special situations. Even in the midst of this tragedy I was still able to learn a lot just as if I was in the classroom. However, it took a little more discipline and responsibility on my part as a student to make sure I'm present everyday to learn the course material and complete all the assignments. This experience taught me a lot about adaptability in the chance that things don't work out as planned. I was very shocked at the professors' commitment to our online learning experience. For example, my chemistry lab course which requires hands-on learning was simulated even online. Due to this transition, it urged the professors to keep updating which benefited me because I could make my own schedule.
