Georgia Southern University is a great school! The professors have the heart to get to know the students. There are great opportunities to network through student organizations. This school holds many job fairs throughout the year so students will be able to connect with companies for potential jobs and internships. Also, there are great opportunities to work with professors on undergraduate and graduate research. This is an awesome school and I recommend the university to all students. The one thing that I would like to see change is for the programs to have more electives in learning upcoming design programs that companies use today.
Review Georgia Southern University
Georgia Southern is a beautiful campus. It's absolutely humongous; I had to ride my bike to each of my classes to get there on time. Now that may sound like a hassle but the greenery and lake are definitely worth it. Student life is forever ongoing. There is always something to do on campus. You'll never be bored and your social life will never be dull. I assure you that you'll make a friend or even two. It's guaranteed.

As for the city of Statesboro, well, it's small and big at the same time. There's plenty of places right around campus that you can go and grab a bite or be entertained. Most of them are even open after midnight! Seriously, those places exist in this state. So if your studying and you want a midnight pie, Dominos delivers bro.

I enjoyed my time at Southern and I wish that I could've stayed longer. It is the perfect college experience.
Georgia Southern University is a great school for many reasons. It has a "small feel" environment but it holds upwards of 23,000 students. Georgia Southern has almost everything to facilitate your interests with many different clubs, athletics, and activities. I have met some great life-long friends here in the short period that I have been attending. There is a major for everyone as well. Overall this is a great place to receive your education!
