Armstrong is amazing! It is in the perfect location. Only twenty minutes away from the beach! If you're an outdoors and adventurous person Armstrong is the place to be. It is a small campus, but the atmosphere is beautiful. Moreover, the professors are great; they care about helping you succeed and will do anything to help you. My favorite part about this school is everyone is active. Whether it be participating in athletics, academics, clubs, or helping the community. When you walk onto the campus, you feel safe, and you feel like you are at home. Overall, if you are looking for a fun and yet academically focused school, Armstrong State is the place to be!

It's located in Savannah, Ga so there's always events to go to and things to do in that area. The college itself has great academics, has well-known health care science programs, and liberal art studies. Just recently a university merger became complete between Georgia Southern and Armstrong State, which means things will most likely improve and new experiences will come from it. As of right now it's a regular school with a community of students almost like a small town of people around your age. Even though that might be the case, I've had a very positive experience with my school by making memorable friends, having lively entertainment at school, joining one of the many clubs and getting involved, going out to the historic districts of town and walking down River Street, volunteering at the bi-annual Treasure Savannah, or enjoying the sunny beach of Tybee Island. This made all the difference and added onto my worthwhile time at Georgia Southern- Armstrong Campus.
I love Armstrong so much. It is the only school that I applied to, and I have not once regretted it. It is located in beautiful Savannah, Georgia. There is so much to do here!
I love the small community feel at Armstrong. The class sizes are usually small. I learn better in smaller classes, so it is great for me. I feel more comfortable asking questions. Most professors also know you by name.
I am majoring in Nursing. The Nursing program here is great. I will be applying to the program this month! I am so excited to be a part of it. The classes here have prepared me to be competitive in the program. They are rigorous and are designed to make you improve your study habits and work HARD.
Armstrong's merge with Georgia Southern has its pros and cons. I believe that the school will have more funding for its programs and possibly more dining options. However, I fear that Armstrong will lose its unique atmosphere and small community.
