Georgia Southwestern State University Reviews
Review Georgia Southwestern State University
Through this first year, it has been hard but also easy. Some of the professors are understanding and love to teach and help students to get a degree. Some of the professors decide from day one that they teach and that's it, they reader there notes for that day and say go study. Overall the campus is friendly, peacefull, and affordable with the help of finacial aid.
The professors are generally interested in their students' successes, and the faculty to student ratio is really nice; there is a lot of opportunity for one-to-one interaction. However, campus-wise, a lot of the buildings need updating still, especially the English building. This building is not even ADA compliant, as it lacks an elevator. The buildings that have been updated are very nice, however, and the nursing and psychology department buildings are gorgeous. Overall, it is a very good college to attend if you want to be closer to home, or if you're looking for that small town college kind of feel.
Most of my courses have had wonderful professors, with engaging teaching styles that made me want to learn more about the course. However, I have had some professors that have been very hard to learn from, as they are often inconsistent or even outright hostile at times to their students. The variety of courses leaves much to be desired; the course rotation that is offered can at times be very difficult to navigate and make sure that the courses you're taking are what you need. The class sizes are usually pretty good, often with maximum 40 to a class, but sometimes as few as four students.
