Georgia Southwestern State University Reviews
My experience at GSW is Excellent! The atmosphere is wonderful and everyone is so friendly. Staff and Professors are easy to locate and talk to when having trouble with an assignment or in class. The students are friendly as well, and everything is so close together. The sports are wonderful to watch in your free time on the weekends or even during the week. The president and the wife are lovely as well. My favorite experience at GSW is Waffles with the Weavers. This event takes place right before finals and the Weavers make waffles for the students at night, you can even win a free t-shirt if you show up early! Downtown is a fun place to explore and go out to eat after a long week!
For a student who did not adapt well to online learning, Georgia Southwestern State University made my online class experience well accessible and provided thorough information for my courses. Their library, study lounges and dorms were well equipped with computers and programs that would be used daily. They ensured that the students were able to succeed regardless of any hardship. The online professors always made themselves available and their responses were prompt.
I am so glad I chose Georgia Southwestern State University to be my school home. There are many people on campus who are very helpful with whatever needs to be done. Whenever someone needs help, there is always someone near to assist in any way they can. At Georgia Southwestern, I have always been given a chance to show how much I love my school. Whether it's attending the club events or whether it's just showing school spirit by buying items from the book store. The professors are always helping us grow into the adults they know we can be by molding us into responsible adults and I believe that kind of stability is needed for many students. The campus has many activities that help introverts get into, like the food trucks and just simple club activities like tie-dye for example. Georgia Southwestern State University is an amazing school and I cannot wait to continue my next two years there.
