Georgia Southern University Reviews
As a first year student at Georgia Southern University, I was nervous about the campus because I never visited. Applying to the school was very last minute but once I got used to the school I am very proud of my decision. The campus is very welcoming to students of different backgrounds such as sexuality, religion, age and race. It was hard to get used to at first since it is a really big campus but after 2 months it was definitely easy to navigate buildings, classes and teachers. I would recommend coming to Georgia Southern University because the teachers, advisors and counselors are really hands on with all of their students. There are always fun activities going on campus so you won't always be bored! The departments are always helpful for their graduating students a job in the future. Georgia southern has changed my life for the better especially the clubs.
I love Georgia Southern! It is a great school with a beautiful campus. The teachers I have had are committed to my learning and I have formed some great relationships. The higher level classes you take tend to have the teachers that are more involved with you, but there are some teachers who teach lower level classes that will form great relationships with you. There are many opportunities to get involved on campus if you are willing to put yourself out there. I joined a sorority on campus and also held a position within it, which allowed me to meet so many great people.
Hail Southern! Great college experience with a balance of school and social life. Graduated in Mechanical Engineering 3 years ago. College offers a lot of support for internships and other resume building opportunities. Engineering professors are very passionate about research and offers students active engagement in their research if one shows interest. Southern is also the best hands on school for engineers. Almost all of the courses revolve around real world applications and a lot of time is spent in the shop building what you design. College football is also very engaging with tailgating becoming a big part of southern and an important college experience. I would recommend Georgia Southern to anyone looking for a college degree.
