Georgia Southern University Reviews
I am just now starting as a freshman online, but my older brother has been at the school for a few years and his experience is some of what inspired my decision to attend! So far, I am happy. I look forward to continue to learn more about my school and experience being a college student. Thus far, I like my classes and my professors, as well as my classmates. The experience is different online for everyone, in comparison to being on-campus in a classroom. However, my professors are interactive and allowing for my classmates and I to be interactive. It's a very interesting experience.
This University has a very special place in my heart. People are absolutely lovely and nice! Food is amazing! They provide us with a lot of healthy lifestyle options (including vegan and vegetarian foods and a sports and recreation center.) The campus is gorgeous, with lots of green areas and eco-friendly as well. Proffesors are nice and fun! Everyone was welcoming when I came here. Dorms are very nice and honestly looks like a hotel. Overall, I wouldn’t choose any other Uniersity over mine. GO EAGLES!
Georgia Southern is a great school! My favorite part of the school are the professors and other staff. Everyone is extremely nice and selfless. Whenever I need help with ANYTHING, there is always someone I can ask to get that answer. The environment here is great! It’s located in a small town, and everybody here has a lot of school spirit. Georgia Southern has the full support of the town and its people. Most importantly, the academics are exceptional. The professors are mostly always available when you need them, to provide help and support for each of their students. Although it is a fairly large school, I have a personal connection and relationship with all of my professors. And that is very important in College!
