Georgia Southwestern State University Reviews
I have had an okay experience at GSW. The administrators are literally AMAZING, but the professors are average. Their Biology department is terrible, it's like some of the teachers are only there to get paid and aren't really helpful to their students. Other professors are okay, they try to work with their students. The cafeteria is terrible, the food is not really good. I only eat in two sections and that is the salad/ fruit bar and the grill. They do have Boar's Head, Chic fil-a, and the pod which are all good alternatives if you have flex cash or dining dollars.
Georgia Southwestern State University is a very clean and beautiful school. In my experience so far, everyone is very welcoming. The professors show that they care about your education, but do more than just teach, they also form bonds with their students, which builds a feeling of trust and security in the school.
My overall experience here is pretty good, the students here are friendly and the professors are so engaging. I love that the school offers free tutoring and that they're able to work around your schedule to get the help you need. Not to mention they inform the first year students of practically everything, there's no need to worry this school supports you along the way and never hesitates to help.
