Georgia Southern University Reviews
I am proud to be an Eagle. This is my sophomore year and I have found Georgia Southern to be an engaging and inviting college. Most of my professors care about their students and willingly help those who seek out assistance. The school resources are outstanding and I am fortunate to have found the perfect college for me. The slogan, " We are a big university with a small town feel" is accurate. People in the community support Georgia Southern and take pride in it! Georgia Southern is an exceptional university!
Georgia Southern is an amazing institution considering its price of tuition. You are given great academic programs, top of the line dorm rooms, and tasty food all within a reasonable price point. The campus life is amazing and includes a large variety of different sports, clubs, and activities that is sure to meet your interest. The institution itself is not any more diverse than your typical PWI, but minorities are sure to make a bold mark on this campus! Be cautious though that Georgia Southern is located in the middle of way, so campus life is as fun as you make it!
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. Professors 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 University over mine. GO EAGLES!
